You have a very different recollection than I do. Before Silva fought Sonnen I remember the general conensus being that he would easily destroy GSP. It was only after Sonnen took him down and kept him there for 4 1/2 rounds that people started saying maybe GSP could do that as well. Even after that it was never a significant majority picking GSP, it was still more like 50-50.
