That's a significant size difference. Anderson is simply a much bigger man. Not just taller, but bigger and longer. Look at the difference in where their shoulders are.

If he wants the takedown, GSP has a huge distance to cross where he's in range of the strikes. And if Anderson gets him into the clinch, GSP's face would take an even worse battering from Anderson's knees than Franklin's did.
