Of course he has. That's not what I said. I said he has had perfect fights before. And he has.

"Picked apart" he was not. It's been some time since that fight, but BJ landing a few combos is not being picked apart. By the end of that fight, GSP was parrying BJ's jab with a shot.

Also, even if Silva is bigger, I would put money on GSP being considerably stronger.

Nowhere did I say that he'd have an easy time, but if there's someone who can take Silva down, keep him there, and not get triangled in the process, it is GSP.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did. But I've seen all this "x is invincible" crap before in MMA. It's never true. And the person who proves it is always someone who "didn't have a chance," yet had every skill necessary, the drive, and the ability to work a game-plan.
