I think it probably gets to him (and others of that stature) being bugged and asked the same questions repeatedly.

The other thing I noticed was, he isn’t that big. I have heard people talking about him using substance, but he really isn’t very big. He is very defined, but not large in mass. I think he is going to have to put on a substantial amount of muscle weight, to be at Alves’ level. Alves walks around at 200+lbs. GSP is about 180-85lbs. Its going to be a great fight though, and my money is on GSP.

Osu!

I don't think that a big mass increase would be to his benefit. He moves very, very well, and is faster than most in his division precisely because he doesn't bob up and down on his weight.

Osu!

good observation:

I was taught to glide, keep head level so not to telegraph

He was refering to his weight cut not his fighting style he actually has decent head movement and its harder to hit a moving target then a level 1 that glides

Fedor : I don't hate GSP. I think it would be a challenge for him since I don't really see anyone challenging him right now in the UFC now. Hey, K-1 is working for Overeem.

If GSP ever did do a match weight fight against Anderson Silva my money would be on Silva.

...and it would be well placed money. And fortunately for fight fans, it is a fight that Silva would have to take seriously.

OSU!
