    By the what?

    If you don't consider a sherdog poll valid (mostly because you think GSP shouldn't be winning, you sure as hell would consider it valid if Silva was winning and you would bloat about it). Then surely the latest poll conducted among MMA fighters should be better right?

    https://theathletic.com/1856943/2020/06/05/fighters-vote-mma-goat-pound-for-pound-best/

    But no, it won't be valid in your mind.... for the sole fact that your favourite fighter isn't winning.

    Your mind
    Everyone that doesn’t have at least 1400 votes should be eliminated.

    The fact is wh often found ourselves discussing in GSP vs Silva related threads. And you can see me discussing with plenty of guys with "Location: Canada"...yet I dont see you discussing with Brazilian people. I just dont see you. And I see you around a lot. But I dont see you.

    Yet the sherdog poll is reliable.....LOL. Keep pretending kiddo.

    I just posted a poll conducted among mma fighters in 2020. You don't even read posts you just reply some random bullshit.

    You lose, again.

    That poll means just as much as me searching for another and paste it here. Remind that Silva was ahead og GSP in p4p standings by most pundits during theuir championship runs so I can bring ton of links.
    In the link you bring, they dont say the name of the guy they are asking to ¡¡!! Its absurd. And some of them even admit to not following the sport back in the day LOL. Its so absurd but that the W you can take I guess to I enjoy it kiddo.

    Go on and find another poll conducted among pro fighters and post it here. Ill wait. And of coruse they dont ask for the name of the fighters, its an anonymous poll.

    And if you were following mma back then the difference between Silva and GSP was extremely close and it wasn't widely in favor of Silva like you keep claiming like the mma newb that you are.


    Don't bother replying until you post a fighter poll, kid.

    I don't know how Aldo is up for discussion . A pound for pound greatest doesn't get slept by a once punch knockout in the first 20 seconds of a fight .

    To each is own. I enjoyed his fights except for the ones where he clearly is alpha male but doesn't get the finish.

    Boxing take more skill???

    No they are very skilled boxers in this one area of fighting.

    MMA in it's totality actually requires more skills.

    Goat is a stupid and hard to quantify but I believe you can nominate goats in their perpsective weight classes.

    For sure Fedor in his prime was just a freaking destroyer.

    Gsp for welterweight. And no it's not Usman yet.

    Middle weight is easy. Anderson Silva.

    LIghtweigth. Khabib.

    I will stop there.

    I see it like this : Both Silva and GSP moved up in weight but atleast
    Georges got a belt. Silva never fought the LHW champion.

    GSP beat a MW champion who didnt even make it to a tittle shot during Silva's championship run in the same division, despite 3 tittle eliminators in the weightclass.

    Silva didnt move up once but twice. He firstly became WW champion beating Sakurai in Shooto, who went to challenge Hughes for the UFC WW tittle right after.
    Silva also fought at WW the same year he became UFC MW champion finishing Franklin.

    So before GSP beat one-eyed Bisping, your "view" was that Silva > GSP?
