[QUOTE=Davisty69;694364]Silva's last real loss was a little less than 4 years ago. He is a much better fighter since then, having earned his Black Belt in BJJ. Also, since getting the Black Belt, he has not been beaten. (yes, i'm discounting the loss to Okami because he didn't get beaten, he simply made a mistake in rules).
If you want to talk about domination, don't forget Serra vs. GSP 1, and that happened only a year and half ago.[/QUOTE]
This is a good point but that is why I am so impressed with GSP the amount of growth in 1.5 years is absolutely astonishing. If you look at the Hughes fight for the title and then the loss to Serra and then look at the fights following that it is absolutely insane how much GSP has improved. He made Hughes look absolutely terrible, like a can, in their rubber match follows it up by annihilating Serra in which it doesnt look like he even got touched in the fight and gave a 5 round spanking to Fitch who looked like he got hit by a car after the fight and GSP didnt even look like he was in a fight.
I would still put Silva ahead of GSP P4P, but Silva would have almost no chance against Fedor strictly due to their size and power difference which doesnt mean I think Fedor is number 1 P4P but an argument could be made for him.
One thing to remember is Silva is 31, GSP is 6 years younger and the progression GSP has made if it continues could mean GSP is the greatest fighter ever when his career is over.
