Correct. I think AS's actual UFC winning streak before his losses will be difficult to top

  The 'active' is referring to the streak I believe. Silva's streak is 2 defeats.

'Weidman’s seven-fight UFC winning streak is the longest active one in the middleweight division.'Am I somehow misinterpreting this? How is this accurate? Doesnt Silva have more? He fought 3 fights at lhw and I guess they might not count the Luter fight cuz Travis missed weight but isn't that still more than 7?
