GSP vs Anderson Silva, BJ Penn vs Jon Fitch

Recommended Posts

If GSP beats Shields and Silva beats Belfort, both champions have cleared out their divisions.

Will we see GSP (22-2) and Anderson Silva (28-4) fight each other in 2011?

If GSP moves up to middleweight and BJ Penn beats Jon Fitch, will BJ be the new welterweight champion?

The only reason GSP finished Penn is because his corner cheated. In reality GSP would have won via UD if his corner had not cheated. I think Penn matches up with Fitch very well and i think Penn will beat him. If GSP vacates i see Penn being Champion with Thiago Alves being the only Welterweight left that can beat him.

the winner of bj and fitch would fight for the vacant ww title against...

.... probably the winner of condit vs lytle....

 

and then anderson would beat gsp for the mw title...

... good fight though..

 

so most likely whoever won the bj vs fitch fight would be champ...

... but i'm still concerned about gsp not moving to mw until anderson's gone..

 

.. i wouldn't be surprised if that coward did that, haha

Bj will not beat

 

1) Fitch

2) Kos

3) Alves

 

And he would have a hard time with Sheilds, Hardy, Paulo Thiago, and Sanchez(ww).

 

Bottom line: No. Penn ain't gonna be champ of anything for a long long time Unless theres a jumping out of a pool contest going on somewhere...

Fitch beat Alves 30-27' date=' if BJ beats Fitch, nobody else can beat him at WW.[/quote']

 

MMaths fail.

Alves and Fitch are two completely different fighters. Fitch defeated Alves by laying on him for 3 rounds and Alves was exhausted from the weight cut... Thought I think even in top shape the result would have been the same..

 

BJ is a great fighter but he doesn't have Fitch,s takedowns and Alves is rather hard to take down for a striker : Kos couldn't do it (so much for Kos's great wrestling pedigree..). If Kos was unable to take alves down I don't see an undersized BJ doing it as BJ really isn't that much of a TD artist. The fight will keep standing and I think BJ would have a harder time with Alves than with Fitch.

Bj beating fitch doesnt really translate to Bj being able to beat thiago. I think Fitch is an easier match up stylistically for Bj than Thiago.

 

edit: just looked at the thread above. +1

Of course Pierre will wait til Silve retires before going to MW.

 

Thats the "safe" thing for him to do.
