By a large margin, Fedor defeats Anderson in a poll about who's the best MMA fighter of all time.

The question about who's the best of all time in MMA always cause fiery discussions among the fans. Normally there's balance between those who point Anderson as being the greatest ever and those who prefer Fedor over him. However, that's not what was seen in this PVT(the greatest brazilian MMA forum) poll. People voted in the poll which stayed whole august on pvt homepage, and chose the russian as the greatest of all time, with 73% of the votes. "Spider" stuck way behind, with only 12% of the votes. In third came Minotauro with 7%.

It's relevant to note that it was allowed only one vote per ip, and the poll was a PVT absolute record.

Check below the complete results.


Fedor Emelianenko: 73%
Anderson Silva: 12%
Rodrigo Minotauro: 7%
Dan Henderson: 7%
Randy Couture: 1%

I don't agree.

Silva is no 1.

The only people who can afford internet connection and are interested in MMA in Brazil are Russians.

That's my theory.

The GOAT crown, as of now, is anyone's guess. Though any of these five have a case more than anybody else at the moment:

Fedor Emelianenko
Dan Henderson
Jon Jones
Anderson Silva
George St.Pierre

Personally out of this five I say Anderson's the most deserving simply because he's an undefeated champion, holds all the most notable records in the premier organization, dominated his weightclass so much that people thinks it's weak and the way he beats his opponents and make it seem too easy.

The Brazilian MMA community has long regarded Fedor as the GOAT. There were some amazing articles in Tatame and elsewhere about how incredible they thought he was. Minotauro was a hero and after Fedor convincingly vanquished him twice, there was no choice but to have grudging respect.

Brazilians don't dig Ando due to him being black and his voice.
Before someone says Pele, that does not negate that BR's can be very racist. Phone Post

 Agreed.

They dont have our American 16 year old TUF kids to skew results.

For them to overwhelmingly resist the urge towards national Pride and vote for the stoic Russian shows they get it.

Silva is the GOAT.

If Fedor hadnt lost those three in a row and retired before that or won those three fights and left he might be the GOAT, but right now Silva is the undisputed GOAT.

 lol, yeah, I understand now why a previous poster insinuated that "The Immortal" is one of the banned trolls(auzzie/shaq attack/doctor mma) on a previous thread.

How many total votes in the poll op?
