Anyway AS already faced two LHWs, how many LHW does he have to fight? And how many MW has GSP faced? (thats why AS is true no1 p4p, n GSP is Safe Pierre)

Weight different between AS and GSP isn't that great, more like 10-20lbs, doh. AS is ~210, maybe up to 220 but GSP is almost 200. And think about this, AS can cut down to 170, GSP can't cut down to 155, JBJ can't cut down 185..

AS is no1 p4p, and GSP is no2 p4p so its only logical.

SO why is it ok for Anderson to be satisfied fighting at MW but not ok for GSP at WW?
he already proved his legacy beating two lhw guys (outclassing) them
one of them is the former lhw champ

silva still rooting for machida to become champ again.
as for gsp he needs to prove himself just like what anderson did..and just like what manny pacquiao did..to prove their dominance on the sport

Exactly , GSP isnt weak in any area he is decent in all.

Anderson is badly weak in the wrestling aspect.


The whole P4P is retreaded because you cant have proof of it but the way i see it is , GSP has dominated everyone for a while now and they were all the #1 contender , Anderson has dominated most of them but then had his ass handed to him so therefore GSP is the best because he hasnt looked like LOSING ONCE RECENTLY.


All the people who use the argument that finishing fights makes you the best blah blah are full of it, if you think finishing Sonnen the way the fight turned out makes you better than dominating a guy who has a 15 fight win streak in every round then you're delusional.

When Chael gets his rematch then Anderson wont even be champ, so this debate can end.

When was the last time GSP got dominated by anyone? Good luck finding that.

GSP is head and shoulders above every WW on the planet, Anderson is barely above Sonnen.

GSP is number 1, the best fighter in history.

I was reading this whole thread thinking that Anderrson Silva was DOMINATED by Chael Sonnen for 4 and a half rounds and people seem to forget that. GSP han't even shown weakness since his loss to Serra.

He just made Jake Shields look like a nobody after Shieldswent 6 years and 15 fights undefeated. Give Chael a rematch and Silva will be dethroned.

Nope. He will forever be number #2 until Anderson loses.

GSP and Silva are both amazing fighters. The two best P4P fighters by a wide margin. However, that being said, I give Silva the nod for #1 simply because he tries to finish fighters. He fights smart (not going to the ground with Maia/Leites) and trys to frustrate grapplers into standing with him, and if they do, he finishes them. If they don't he embarasses them.

The main reason GSP isn't my #1, he lacks either the killer instinct, or the willingness to use it.

Edit: GSP fanboyism is hilarious.

Yeah, 4 years ago. Since that he has faced only top level competition and made them look like little boy's, that includes stopping Serra with knees.

Yes but why do GSP fans act like that fight never happened? It doesn't matter if it was a fluke or not, he fought Serra in 07 and lost by KO.

Andy's last legitimate loss was in 04. He got DQ'd in 06 but has demolished everyone since then. His worst performances are on par with a typical GSP fight. In other words:

Andy vs Leites = GSP vs Shields

But GSP gets praised for going out their putting on these crappy fights while Silva gets pooped on

Its seems to me that Silva is so damn good at what he does that occasionally when he performs like GSP he gets criticized.
