If GSP-Anderson Silva Happens, Rashad Evans Knows Who He Is Picking

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans was asked his prediction for a potential super-fight between Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva.

Evans, ever the analyst, broke down his prediction while appearing on The MMA Hour.

I definitely think he’s got a shot against Anderson. One thing about Anderson is this right here: Anderson’s a great fighter, I mean, the one thing with Anderson is he has a problem defending the takedown. On the ground sometimes he allows people to advance position way too much.

Evans pointed to the two previous Silva-Chael Sonnen bouts, as Sonnen was able to take “The Spider” down and grind on him.

Evans continued, saying, “You get a guy like Georges St-Pierre in a position like that, Anderson may not make it another round. Does Georges have enough razzle-dazzle in order to get in and take the shot? I say yes. I think so, I think Georges beats Anderson; I really do.”

The super-fight between UFC champions has yet to be agreed upon, but UFC president Dana White has guaranteed he can get it signed.
