Default Re: GSP: Is he the second greatest MMA fight ever?

Silva's style lends itself to more highlight-reel knockouts. The fighting style he's had from the start is more flashy - GSP is more of a grinder.

But GSP hasn't really had to "work his ass off" in his fights. I mean, the guy has barely lost a round for half a decade. He could certainly finish more, but it's not like GSP is turning in Benson-Edgar type decision victories. He pitches shutouts.
