You're not going to destroy everyone every fight.
I'd say it kind of evens out for Silva. He lost some embarassing ways(Getting layed on by a 155er for 2 rounds and the flying heel hook.), but he finishes top competition frequently.
GSP always wins and his 2 loses have come by submission to Hughes and getting clipped and punished by Serra, but his fights tend to be decisions and not always exciting.
Slightly OT, but its funny that Silva probably came to the UFC because of his 2nd and 3rd loss(I don't count the DQ) as they were back to back subs in Pride.
