GSP = Best P4P?
 
How can GSP be the best p4p? what about Anderson Silva? cos even Dana White thinks Anderson Silva is the best p4p..
If you compare their UFC record AS is clearly better.

AS
Win: 13, Loss: 0 (8T/KOs, 3 Submissions, 2 Decisions)
Won Fight of the Night (3 times)
Won Knockout of the Night (3 times)
Won Submission of the Night (2 times)
Most consecutive title defenses (Eight)
Most successful title defenses (Eight)
Most consecutive wins in the UFC (Thirteen)
Longest UFC title reign

GSP
Win: 16, Loss: 2 (5T/KOs, 2 Submissions, 9 Decisions :sarcastic11:)
Won Fight of the Night (2 times)
Won Submission of the Night (1 time)

If GSP is that great, why can't he finish fights? why does he have to admit that he fights "Safe"?
GSP says he is the or wants to be the best p4p in the world, yet he is too scared to Anderson Silva. :confused02:

Silva vs GSP is long overdue and we'll probably never see it :( only cos GSP is too chicken to face Anderson Silva and avoiding it hardcore...

Why doesn't Anderson Silva want to go up in weight and fight JBJ? What about Anderson "playing it safe" against Maia and Leites? Both of which were horribly outclassed more so than anybody GSP has ever fought.

Anderson Silva isn't a little bigger he is a huge 185lber the guy walks around probably a good 30lbs bigger than GSP.

While GSP is good... Anderson Silva is P4P best right now...

I honestly believe Silva is the p4p king. But the argument for GSP being number 1 is that he's strong in absolutely every aspect of MMA. While Silva is clearly weak at the most important one, Wrestling. Regardless, I still think Silva is #1.

I think Anderson Silva has shown more weakness in getting his ass dominated for 20 minutes by Sonnen than GSP has. Silva has also lost the first round to both Hendo and Lutter as well as losing the last round to Maia. Silva has looked human, GSP has dominated.

Anderson Silva already fought larger fighters(two LHWs) like any other MMA/UFC legends. But GSP haven't faced any larger fighter despite the face that he always say he is the or wants to be the best p4p in the world, and he is a Big WW. Silva said he is willing to cut down to 170 to face GSP, and GSP said(iirc) he is not scared to face MW/LHW and since they'll be fighting at same weight i don't see any disadvantage for GSP. GSP fans think GSP can beat anyone anyway.. :confused02:

I don't want to add anything but this: Maia was NOT "outclassed" in the Silva fight, if Silva had been a badass and tried to actually BEAT Maia he could have ended up being submitted.


Saying Silva outclassed Maia in that fight and that's why he acted the way he did, is like saying GSP outclassed Shields on the ground so bad and that's why he didn't take him down more.

I thought Silva wasnt willing/couldnt cut down to 170?

Either way I would have to go with GSP. Regardless if you like his style or not, GSP has dominated all his fights for years.

Maia was seriously outclassed in the first 3 rounds. Silva landed what he wanted, when he wanted. Maia himself new he was outclassed so he fell to his ass anytime Silva took a step towards him. Then, about mid round 3, I think Silva gassed and that's what led to him acting like he did.

I'd give Silva the #1 spot still
GSP #2.
