No, never took any offense, I was expecting someone to call me out on that one.
Silva is heralded as the best pond for pound in the world but I think that GSP has more than Silva.
GSP fights smarter and can do everything very well from stand up to wrestling to juijitsu.
Silva can hit and knock you out from any angle and has a decend scramble and is pretty good on his back.
I just like GSP more but both are undoubtedly great fighters.
