    If they were the same size I think GSP would beat them. Those 2 were always big for their divisions, GSP was a normal sized WW IMO.

    Maybe most people don't know shite, Serra beat him fast.. he can't be the GOAT
    Also Hughes submit him in the first round, that's like Fedor losing to Coleman by sub in their first fight

    Nah that's dumb. You can pinpoint tons of shit like that.

    Jones lost his last 2 fights and lost to Gus, also PEDs

    Silva lost to Chonan and some dude in pride who had a losing record, also PEDS.

    GSP is the most consistent IMO, and he won two belts and dominated the toughest division at the time.

    Did GSP lost to Hendriks? According to the judges GSP won. But I think we all agree Hendriks won in actuality so we have to count it as a loss, doesnt matter what the judges scored because they dont know anything about MMA

    Are you seriously comparing a flash KO loss to Matt Serra to a one-way drubbing from Daiju Takase? Really? Cool. Good analogy.

    It almost appears as if people who actually followed Silva's pre-UFC career don't think he's the GOAT because they saw him fight and lose multiple lackluster scraps against total losers. And they're right. But noobs and teens only know Anderson as a legend and god.

    Stronger opponents overall, didn't cheated, never ducked anyone but during his 30 days MW Championship reign, cherry picked opponents only when he cleared his division (Nick Diaz, and Michael Bisping later), dominant af, etc

    Jon Jones fought 10x better competition, Silva had a longer championship reign, and they both had the capability to beat the shit out of the "GOAT" I just don't get it.

    Jon Jones competition was good, but it wasn't the Death Row GSP went trough lol
    They could both kick his ass, but P4P, GSP is much more skilled then them...
    If it's just about kicking ass, then Ngannou is the GOAT

    Yes it was he fought more world champions than GSP, easily too.

    More finishes, and he's actually undefeated

    GSP didn't fought a lot of world champion, because he was at the top all this time, and before him, it was Hughes. He fought the best of the beast at WW, tho, which is a much, much more deeper division than LHW.

    GSP has also only two defeats (one before his prime) and avenged both of them.

    Less finish, but IMO, more domination in the fight, and of course, no cheating.

    If it wasn't for his cheating, I would have Jon Jones at either #1 or #2. I think he's an incredibly skilled fighter, but the cheating, IMO, disqualified him.

    That's my humble opinion.

    Didn't said anything against it.
    But the WW saw some all-time great going there at that time, and GSP humiliated most of them.

    That was the best period of LHW in history.. with the Pride fighters. And then he had to beat Black Fedor that defeated assasins

    Wrong. Most people seem to agree tgat either Jones, DJ, Aldo, Fedor, or 'other' are the GOAT. GSP has well under half of the total votes cast. Not saying he is or isn't (I voted Fedor, but GSP has a strong claim).

    For me Jones & not even close if its about who has best ability to win, undefeated for so long, fought so many good fighters, around 12 defences but looking way more beatable last few fights.
