You dont win the WW Belt and keep it for this long by doing front flips over opponents. Also he isint a fighter because apparently he also doesent throw any punches or tries to break someone's arm off, and if we thought we see it, its a hallucination. GSP is THE #2 P4P MMA Fighter on the Planet, you could make a case he is #1, but he is ranked no lower than #2. Aldo, Jon Jones, Cain, etc are not above him. They shouldnt be, at this stage. Silva and GSP are way ahead of Aldo and then the rest of the pack.

They havent fought enough, they havent defended enough and they need more wins against quality opponents, especially in weaker divisions. They need to force people from LW or BW to move to FW to fight Aldo because their is not enough real tests for Aldo. HW turned into a 3 man race. And LHW is no longer the powerhouse it once was just after the PRIDE acquisition. GSP and Silva may not have much new challengers as of late, but the divisions still are pretty deep with plenty of Top Contenders and quality fighters.

Like I said before, finishing shouldnt give you this many extra points, winning should ultimately be more important. Im sure that GSP does think about finishing to silence critics, but what good does that do if he ends up taking a drastic risk, makes a big mistake, and loses? Im not saying he should not take risks, why shouldnt he? But he shouldnt just abandon his gameplan just to make people happy and just start winging overhand punches like he did against Shields. The Janitor just destroyed Brilz in 20 seconds, should he be Top#10 P4P now? Cmon, somewhere the line has to be drawn.
GSP isn't a "Fighter" he said it himself.

GSP is a slight #1 - Toxic nailed it in his posts, IMO. Silva has looked weaker more often, plain & simple. People are simply blinded by his flash.

Haters gonna hate, fanboys gonna covet. Personally, I have both fighters in my top 5 fave of all time, so whatever.

Whether you like GSP or not he is probably the P4P best fighter simply because there is no hole in his game, no one else can control and manipulate a fight like he can, he doesn't finish enough fights but the truth he doesn't need to, he can control the fight and win that way.

I always thought GSP was too nice, every interview or video i saw of him he just seemed overly nice but after UFC 111 when he did not break Hardys arm i am convinced that he is just a really nice guy, like to the bone nice. It's remarkable that somebody who fights for a living can be as nice as GSP is, he's a credit to Canada and the human race even if he was an Englishman i think i would name my son Georges - that's how nice GSP is.

If Dana white and pretty much every creditable mma reporter gives anderson siva the number one spot y is this even a debate. Silva is more skilled than gsp period, gsp is great but silva is on a next level.

Not sure why anyone would have Jones as the p4p best, lets see if he can defend his title a few times first.

You cant rank fighters p4p on what they might do, its what they have already done, GSP and Silva can be the only candidates with everyone else is someplace behind.

This bs about anderson massively outweighing gsp is just not true, is dana whites videos blog AS said he was 197 (bearing in mind his fight is August 27th and the blog was pre UFC129), whereas multiple reports have GSP as weighing 194 before fights. Ok AS has a larger frame with longer limbs - but I guarantee you GSP is much stronger than AS and can outlift him at pretty much any excercise.
Now the crap about it being unfair is outta the way - IMO Anderson beats GSP and is therefore undisputed pound for pound king.

Anderson is my personal P4P no1 but you are blind if you cant see that the general opposition GSP has faced over the last 3 years has been higher.

Whilst Anderson was fighting Cote, Leben, Maia, Lutter and Leites GSP was fighting a prime Hughes, BJ, Thiago Alves, Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck.

ATM GSP's win resume is 2nd to no-one, if Anderson continues to add names like Belfort, Okami etc to his resume which he is perfectly capable of overtaking GSP though.

I'm not sure how P4P works, but even if GSP fought Anderson Silva at 185 it would not really be a fair fight, nor a true representation of P4P in my eyes, even though i would expect GSP to win.
