White: Anderson Silva is the greatest fighter of all-time

source: mmaweekly.com
 

Anderson Silva is laying down records that won’t be broken for 50 years,” said White after the press conference. “If he really thinks he has five years left, he’s not at the tail end of his career. Five years is a very long time. Three fights a year for five years?

“The guy is 37 years old, going on 38. 37 is when a guy is done, he’s over, he’s toast, especially in the fight business. He’s just a freak of nature when it comes to fighting.”

“He’s the greatest of all time. I think he’s the greatest in any combat sport. Anderson Silva just does amazing things that nobody else can do,” exclaimed White, proclaiming him superior to even Mike Tyson’s heyday in boxing.

“Watch every fight that he has. Enjoy every moment that he’s here, because when he’s gone, you’re gonna regret it (if you don’t).

Anderson Silva is the guy you want to watch when he’s fighting.”

You asked !   LOL      Are those not counted ?  Just fights under the Zuffa banner count ??? So Jeff Monson, Pedro Rizzo, and Ishii shouldn't "count" Stephan Bonnar, Forrest Griffin, and Irvin should. Gotcha

I would never say it before, but now I can say that Anderson is definitively the best fighter ever. I scoffed and mocked Joe and Goldy when they were saying this prefight too. I won't be doing that anymore.I never saw a guy in an mma fight put himself at a disadvantage like Anderson did when he leaned on the fence, simply to prove a point and put on a show. Best ever.
