Silva names four greatest fighters of all time


During Tuesday's media teleconference to promote UFC 162, middleweight champion Anderson Silva was asked to name the four greatest fighters in MMA history, pound for pound.

“In my opinion, B.J. Penn is No. 1," replied Silva. "And then Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell and then Royce Gracie.”

Do you agree with Silva's all-time great ranking?
1. BJ Penn
2. Randy Couture
3. Chuck Liddell
4. Royce Gracie

Including Silva, who many feel is the greatest fighter in the history of the sport, what are your top five? Who is your #1?

Silva fights Chris Weidman at UFC 162, live on PPV, July 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I'd put GSP in and take, reluctantly, BJ out. BJ gets an honourable mention along with Hughes and Royce.

Strange, considering he wanted to fight GSP and not Jones.

(1) Anderson Silva (2) BJ Penn (3) Fedor (4) Sakuraba (5) Rickson Gracie....(hard not to put GSP, Hughes, CroCop/Nog, even Aldo at this point though. But that's the list for Top 5 that I trueley believe is top 5 ever.)
