When will Anderson silva and gsp fight?

As of now, Never. A super-fight between Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre has been making rounds for the past couple of years. Silva is the current Middleweight Champ and GSP is the Welterweight Champ. So, in order for a fight to happen, both of them have to agree upon a weight to fight in and hence the fight could take a long time before it actually happens.

If both fighters could fight at the same weight Who would win a match between Anderson Silva versus Georges St Pierre?

Silva hands down, silva is far the superior fights pound for pound. Depends on what fight, if it's standing then it would go to Anderson Silva, because of his amazinfg knees and mauy thai clinch, but on the ground it would go to GSP, because of his outstanding wrestling. *** GSP would beat Silva if Silva dropped down to 170lbs to fight GSP. Silva would win if GSP went up to 185lbs to fight Silva.

Did gsp beat Anderson silva?

No. There has never been a match between GSP and Anderson Silva. So, the outcome of the match is out of question. Also, such a match may not happen at all because they both fight in two different weight categories. GSP is the Welterweight champion in UFC whereas Silva is the Middleweight champ. If a fight has to happen between GSP and Silva, both of these champions have to agree on a weight to fight at which hasn't happened so far. If such a fight happens in future, it would be extremely hard to predict who would win because they are both the top fighters in their respective weight categories.

Is Anderson silva ever going to fight gsp?

This fight is not likely to happen since they are now two weight categories apart. GSP is the champion at 170 and has never expressed interest to moving up in weight. Silva was the champion at 185 and has now moved up to fight in the 205 lb category. Thus, as it stands now, GSP would have to move up by two weight categories or alternatively fight at some catch weight - a very unlikely event.
