GSP surpasses Silva, breaking multiple records with win Saturday
Win, lose or draw, if St-Pierre can keep the fight going longer than just 39 seconds, he will break current record holder BJ Penn for the most time in the octagon–currently at 5 hours, 3 minutes, 51 seconds. The title of most victories in UFC history is currently tied between Matt Hughes, Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Anderson Silva and GSP with 19. Will St-Pierre break the tie with 20 wins, being the most victorious figter ever in UFC history? The most prestigious IMO is title defenses. Currently tied between St-Pierre and Silva at 12, GSP has a chance to surpass the current GOAT with a possible 13th title defense.
