Fedor is the GOAT... FACT: Silva got a title shot after his first fight in the UFC, which was against Leban. That would never happen these days. Unless your name is Brock Lesnar. or.. lol if you wanted to change weightclasses.... lol or.... nevermind, I guess it does happen these days, all the time actually..

Either way, Anderson is great dont get me wrong, but I dont think hes Fedor GOAT yet, Fedor fought more top guys through out his career, Hell GSP's Record looks better. Its just my opinion. No one has to like it.

your right about that, and without a doubt he will be in the hall of fame, and will set the standard high. Just wish everyone didn't think he was invincible. Someone will get him sooner or later, and he will fall, just like Fedor did.

Listen I'm one of the biggest AS fans and I know he's not invincible. No man is. Anderson Silva has losses on his record, two of them finishes. I'm not going to sit here though and tell you he isn't the greatest mma fighter of all time.

The thing is, Anderson has been given multiple opponents to test his strongest weakness, wrestling, and has overcome these tests immensely. Even when faced with extreme adversity, he overcomes it.

There is good argument that Fedor is the greatest mma fighter of all time. That's fine, but in my eyes its Anderson. We could sit here and talk semantics, or you can just let the thread continue it's origin. Phone Post

Posted this in a thread I made the other day, figured it belongs here:

As some of you may know, Anderson isn't always my favourite fighter outside the cage.

But holy fuck is he amazing to watch.

 

 

Whenever I'm feeling cynical, I think that this fight was staged and that Forrest and Anderson spent hours practicing this.  It's like Anderson knew exactly what Forrest was gonna throw before he threw it.

Full speed.  Mind blown.

Just toying with the former LHW champ (in his first fight since losing the title)

Still have never seen someone brutalize Rich Franklin like this

So few people talk about this performance.  Nate was a scary guy back then and a very capable grappler, and the switch Anderson hit on him was a beauty.

So selective and accurate with his GnP

While he might not be "Michael Jordan-esque" in his grappling ability, Lutter is a black belt and a legit BJJ practitioner 

I genuinely think he's bored in there sometimes.

Not kidding.

Doing shit out of movies because that's the only way he can entertain himself

And my favourite AS gif ever.  After being dominated by Chael for 4 and a half rounds (including being wobbled), many (including me) thought that Anderson was exiting his prime.  And then he decides to front kick Vitor in the face, becoming the only man ever to clean KO Vitor.

Greatest of all time

I pray to the Gods of the present and the past that Anderson does sign a 10 fight deal.

Saw him fight Forrest live in Philly. Watching the Matrix in real life had to be one of best experiences I've ever had. Phone Post
