i think he knows he is not #1 because he does not finish his opponents... it probably bugs him just as much as it does the fans, but he would rather play it safe and still get the win...

Damn right he should feel insecure, he is below anderson and just above jones. If Jones gets pass rampage easily he is number 2 imo over gsp.

GSP had his chance to be p4p but he can't finish. Remember silva and him was neck and neck, silva dropped off a little after ufc 112, then silva since 117/vitor he has proved y he stands alone at number 1.

GSP is amazing no doubt but when you are so damn dominate u should be finishing guys.

I don't think it bothers him because it has nothing to do with him really. He seems level headed when it comes to talks of changing weight classes, etc. I think as long as he is the #1 WW in the world, and possibly ever, that he is happy.

are you forgetting when he was talking about moving up fighting silva,etc, and wanting to be the Michael Jordan of MMA. All that slowed down when he could not finish sheilds and then silva front kicked vitor.

After silva, i think Jon Jones or Jose Aldo will surpass GSP on the P4p list.

Ha!

The P4P best fighter doesn't get schooled for 23 straight minutes. I don't care if you finish or not.

GSP is the most dominant fighter in the UFC hands down. GSP is P4P#1 at the top all by his lonesome.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I think GSP is matt hughes 2.0, maybe the greatest welter weight of all time and he is fundamentally sound at every aspect of mixed martial arts. But Anderson Silva transcends his division and is one of the greatest FIGHTERS of all time. He has bruttaly finished some of the greatest fighters(Belfort) as well as embarassed some very good ones(Forest. In order for GSP to be considered on andy's level he would have to loosen up his game and start finishing fighters(no more george safe pierre) or if he still wants to use the same style than he should move up a weight division because there isnt anyone left at ww for him to fight at this point.

In my P4P there is no number 1 guy. Skill wise - GSP is the best guy, list of victims - draw, match quality - i can't really decide, GSP dominates everybody in all aspects but doesn't finish fights, Anderson finishes fights but struggles with wrestlers from time to time.

Yet did he lose, he may have got schooled for 23 mins but he did not lose. I did not see silva getting knock the **** out by matter serra did I? If you really want to bring up the sonnen fight in which silva one. Explain to me how gsp can be p4p best when he lost to a dude in under 4 mins?

There are legends in the sports who have made a career of taking ass whooping and coming back. Fedor,big nog ,etc. Look in reccent memory Dan Henderon was rocked almost finished but came back and won that and became relevant.

GSP:
15-2 in the ufc
5 tko wins
3 subs wins
9 decision wins

Silva:
11-0 mw
2-0 lhw
8 tko/ko wins
2 decisions
3 sub wins....there is no way you can say GSP is above this guy, he has never lost in 2 division inside the ufc simple fact y he is p4p best. Has held the belt since 06.
