I had Silva first after the Belfort KO and GSP a very close second.
I got GSP ranked 1 now because of his dominance. Many guys here wont see why but GSP has his own dominating niche. He may not finish opponents but he totally dominates them.
Its not like Silva where guys try to exploit his wrestling and ground game. Silva loses rounds to grapplers but comes back with amazing finishes. GSP faces opponents who dont have a skill to exploit and he dominates them. Great fighters have Ko's but GSP had like a 30 round win streak against title challengers.
