I'm starting to wonder if some people actually understand what is being done when those guys fight.
I don't see how anybody would give the advantage to GSP. It really makes no sense at all.
You're also being dishonest. Silva wasn't just fighting Coté, he also was going up against guys like Henderson, Franklin, and making jumps to fight guys like Irvin and Griffin.
And Matt Serra is not a name that is impressive, GSP losing to him was embarrassing. BJ Penn in his first fight also messed up GSP, many thought BJ should have won that fight.
Not to take anything away from GSP, he owned every opponent after that fight.
But Silva would be a clear favorite if that fight were to happen.
