Actually I think there's less chance. A smaller guy that has superior wrestling can use that to take the fight to the ground where the size advantage is far less meaningful (we actually very recently saw this with Penn/Fitch). A smaller guy that only has superior striking is always going to run into problems due to inferior striking range and power. So GSP's strengths are best suited to success at a higher weight (as was the case with henderson and couture) while Silva's are not.
