I consider GSP to have the most effective standup at WW but as you said, it has a lot to do with factors other than his striking, or so it would seem. Going purely off of striking I would agree that Daley or Alves are probably the most likely candidates though I'd be curious to see what would happen if GSP chose to stand and trade with either of them rather than mixing it up with takedowns. Guess thats the beauty of GSP's style, the fight goes where he wants it.
