It's a tough one to call, either of them are eligible for the title of Greatest UFC Fighter of all time at this point.
Hendo, chael, vitor, okami are not lesser opponents than hardy, alvez, fitch. And Silva did go up and beat guys like forest and bonnar. And spectacularly. Even if there not top 10 ranked. Gsp didnt fight middleweights in the top 20? Gsp could have done the same.
But gsp is now p4p number 1. I had silva at 1 before and gsp at 2. Jon and aldo tied.
