We seen in the 2nd fight that with Sonnen that Silva has pretty good take down defense as well. The problem lies that he is usually comfortable off his back. He learned from the 1st fight that being on your back against an outstanding wrestler like Sonnen was not in his best interest. Sonnen got him down in the first, but after that he was stuffed. To me, Sonnen is a better wrestler than GSP.
Th only other guy I'd put in Silva's league is Fedor, but that was the Fedor of a few years, not the current one. His reign has ended. So right now, It's all Silva.
