GSP or Silva

Obviously we are splitting hairs here and no one can take anything away from Fedor. But the fact is he is a heavy weight and any P4P discussion has to address that heavyweights do not have the same skill sets as the smaller weight classes. Fedor has hand speed and aggression like no one else in his class and that's what makes him so dominant. GSP and Silva go out and prove their superiority against men with similar physical tools and beat them with superior technique. You can't say that happens in the heavyweight division with all the gassing and hail mary punching that goes on there.
An aside to GSP's greatness; Jon Fitch is a world class fighter a worthy champ any other year, and GSP is going to school him.

Uh since you want to bring it up, BJ controlled alot of that fight, GSP may have squeeked out a victorty but since this is still a P4P disscussion I suggest you start comparing sizes since GSP is huge for WW and BJ is a pretty comfortable LW. So if they are pretty much dead even the nod has to go to the smaller guy.
