No, I don't. The reason is because of the way he destroyed his opponents and not only never lost but never got hurt either, not a scratch on the body. But who cares about that, people were able to bring him down on the mat..So I guess that means he really isn't that amazing.
And you like to rage on Silva's opponents, I'm supposed to be impressed by GSP facing Serra (and losing), or Koscheck, or Hardy or Alves?? How are they any different than the Marquardt, Okami or Griffin?

Fedor is finished.
And I actually said Silva-GSP-Jones are the cream of the crop. I said Jones need to prove himself more, and I said I put Silva higher than GSP because of the way he beats his opponents, meaning dominance (99% of the time), hurting them from any position possible, and not suffering any type of real damage. Him jumping up weight class and dominating the same way also adds to the reasoning. Those are facts.
Your argument is that his opponents weren't really that great, that's an opinion, not a fact.
Do you see how your logic here is stupid?

Just a question, do you not think Mayweather was ducking, as well?
Silva never denied he rather faced GSP and isn't too thrilled about facing Jones. Not sure how not particularly wanting to face the dominant champion of a higher weight class takes away from his dominance.
Did GSP or Jones go up in weight classes to face other opponents?
And seeing how you like to discredit Silva a bit due to his opponents, who did Jones face that's overly impressive? Evans? Washed up Rampage or Shogun?
I'm not dogging Jones. My point is you can look at the list of opponents every great fighter has faced, you'll get some rather unimpressive names in there.

The proof is insufficient.
I explained why I think he's that good. It remains an opinion, just like yours. People can have different opinions.

Because GSP has integrated wrestling into MMA, and coupled it with BJJ ability that none of those guys have. But feel free to ignore this point, like you always have.

2.) According to Silva's own words, GSP, and BJ Penn are the greatest fighters of all time.
1) Never ignored that. Not the first time you're completely making stuff up about me, it's becoming quite a recurring theme actually.
I also don't think GSP has an amazing ground game. He's good at the transition, wrestling and grappling, and he's a very smart tactician. Actually, you can listen to him say just about the same thing.

2) He also said Coté is a great fighter, as well as every other one of his opponents.

Wow, you sure showed me.
What's sad is that you think ''jab, circle, shoot, not get submitted, stay on top for 5 rounds and not eat any shots'' is actually easy to do.
But I bet that even if Silva KOd GSP, you'd still refuse to give him as much credit.

There is no ridiculousness, it's fight, you can put Matt freaking Serra versus GSP, and guess who'll lose?
So of course GSP has a chance, I just don't think he'll win. Nothing freaking crazy about that.
For some reason, you NEVER talk about the possibility of Silva hurting GSP, nope, it's as if it's so impossible that it's not even worth bringing up. However, you love to bring up the fact the other needs to fight the PERFECT FIGHT to win, and somehow, you seem to favor him. You really don't make any sense at all, and at first I was annoyed, now I just find it humorous.
