    GSP retired with the most wins in UFC history, the most wins in UFC title fights, a better win % than both Andy & Fedor, almost as many top 5 wins as both of them combined & avenged all losses.......

    Not in my book, though he was indeed great. He was clearly the GOAT WW.

    Probably number 3.

    1. Silva
    2. Fedor
    3. GSP

    But honestly, IMO, he and Fedor could be interchangeable in my book.

    For his strategic dominance during his prime: yes
    For his inability to finish Dan freaking Hardy: No

    Mehh, losing in his Prime really hurts him. Fedor GOAT but GSP got close, maybe if he didn't lose to Serra but since he lost to Hughes and Serra that bumped him down imo. Still had a tough schedule.

    He might be the GOAT. But he's definitely not the most entertaining to watch

    The thing that prevents GSP from being the GOAT is his inability to finish so many opponents.

    gsp surpassed silva imo.

    also was more well rounded.

    although i think gsp is much less physically talented than both silva and fedor.
