silva's p4p status

With anderson set to defend his mw title yet again in rio this saturday is his p4p status on the line as well?

only days out from the rematch years in the making it's not a bad time to recount his ufc success. For years silva and stpierre have remained at the two top spots in the imaginary p4p list. With so many fans drawn to either fighter does either deserve to be ranked above the other? Silva having won 13 straight ufc fights undefeated, a ufc record. gsp is currently riding a 9 fight win streak with an official ufc record of 16-2. Anderson has won 23 rounds overall with his longest streak being 15 in a row. Gsp has won 50 rounds overall with his longest streak being 30 in a row. Silva has lost 7 rounds gsp has lost 5. Gsp has fought in the ufc since '04 silva '06. Silva has 8 title defenses and gsp has 6. Both have fought in 9 title fights. Silva has won 8 bonus awards gsp 5. With a record of 13-0 in the ufc silva has 8 (t)ko's 3 subs 2 dec. Gsp ufc record is 16-2 with 5 (t)ko's 2 subs and 9 dec. 1 loss (t)ko 1 loss sub. With stats like these both are just obviously better in different ways. So what other factors should be involved and how do you measure these two p4p champs in comparison?
