I wouldn't say thats true. Anderson had a string of fights that were HEAVILY criticized, right up to when Sonnen dominated him for 4 and a half rounds and Silva slipped in the triangle. Anderson chooses when he does and doesn't perform. Which is a sign of both how much more advanced he is than his competition(outside of Sonnen) and his lack of desire to finish fights(not recently) and simply retain his title.
I'd honestly go with GSP in the match up. As Sonnen has proven, Silva doesn't match up well with wrestlers.
