I understand many want to include longevity in GOAT discussions, and I respect that, but P4P is here and now, and no one has even come close to what Jones has done over the last 2.5 years.
I agree with all of that, Rampage Jackson, Rashad Evans, Lyoto Machida, Maurício Rua he walked through these guys with ease and these guys were all champions. The only reason I don't consider him the best yet is like you say longevity but even still it would be hard against it.
Not to mention GSP has a bad (yes avenged) loss in the UFC, whereas Anderson doesn't.
IMO even though Silva won against Sonnen in there last fight he needs to beat Sonnen convincingly this time.
