GSP: Is he the second greatest MMA fight ever?
 
Second only to Fedor, Silva being third!

Surely he must be...

When all 3 of those mentioned fighters careers are done lets seriously discuss this .

I personally think either Gsp or silva will leapfrog fedor as the greatest.

Though most on here will shoot me down but fedors last 2years of career really has put a few dings in what seemed like iron clad legacy

GSP will probably go on to be the greatest.

He is miles in front of AS. His division has been STACKED for YEARS and he has OWNED IT for years, now.

Who is there to left to beat to really leap frog over Fedor though? I think if GSP moves up to beat Anderson Silva then that would put him close (though not likely to happen). If Anderson Silva moves up to beat Jon Jones at 205 that would be huge, but probably won't happen either.
Not sure what there is really left to do for either guy except move up in weights, but don't think it'll happen at this point.

I'm just thinking if one of these guys or maybe both continue on there winning ways upon retirement they will have a strong case to challenge fedor..

If silva were to add jones to his scalps I would have him on top..

**** no, but a win over Silva might just do.

GSP is a distant 3rd, and hasn't finished anyone in 4 years. I rate Anderson Silva over Fedor because of longevity, and because he is a Champion in two different eras. No disrespect to Fedor, but after Pride died he sat out and never fought the Best Fighters in the World, in or from the premiere organization in the World. Avoiding the Best Fighters was still not enough to stop father time from catching up, but my man Anderson Silva is a few years older and still on top. By no means disrespect as this is fact, Fedor had it, but doesn't have the longevity to back those accomplishments up.

Anderson Silva has it all, and is a more dynamic striker. Slipping punches, breaking faces from the clinch, and front kicking opponents in the face... Ending fights seemingly whenver he pleases. We've never seen him dumped on his head, quit, or be punched out by a much smaller and older man. If Fedor is passed his prime then so be it, but Anderson Silva is still Great at an advanced age. Fedor just never reached that point, he crashed and burned as Anderson Silva aged like fine wine. Almost everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I don't think Fedor has it and probably because he never evolved his game. The Game Don't Wait, and he fell into Werdum's trap. He fell in love with his hands. That, and defeat ****ed him up which probably led to him quitting against Bigfoot. Hendo just pulled off an epic switch, and would have punched my man Fedor unconscious if it weren't for the man with the dreads.

Silva is a clear #1 for me. GSP is top 3 now but may not figure out in the top 5 in a few years.

Re: GSP: Is he the second greatest MMA fight ever?
 
I have no problem with anyone ranking Fedor, Silva, or St. Pierre number 1.

Fedor didn't quit against Bigfoot it was a ref stoppage.

Terrible post

No, his resume has him ahead of Silva imo.

Fedor - GOAT
Nogueira - Stacked resume
GSP
Silva

He mentally checked out, the slow walk to his corner, quitting is quitting, as is the official result.

I stand by what I say.

Dude, from that point of view Fedor quitted that fight before even getting into the cage.


Worst version of Fedor ever...

The Fedor VS Mooson could beat Fedor VS Silva with 1 hand tied to his back !
