Yes it is

Id be FAR more impressed if Anderson subbed Butterbean or Akebono then if he beat guys like Weidman, Jacare etc.

Anderson is the best but Bones is a very close second. GSP as talented as he is just isn't the killer those two are. Phone Post 3.0

Give it a rest, Joe.

Anderson fights the likes of Bonnar (who is B-Level) and because he lets him tee-off on him, and misses, he is Neo's clone... Zzzz.

Anderson, IMO, he's got the same syndrome as Mayweather. Fight once in a blue moon and fight pointless fights and moan about stuff...

Irvin? Bonnar? Griffin? Cote? Thales (however you pronounce it)? Daft fights.

When Andy is on HE'S ON, but he makes too many excuses... "He's my friend" etc.

You shouldn't fight @ 205 if you won't fight the best there. That's why I hope GSP never takes this fight.

Fedor, for me, is the greatest.

Humble, Tried to kill you, Finished fights, Didn't complain, Fought the two greatest HW's of his time (and beat them), He just got on with it!

Bones is great, but the dude IS a HW. Look at his fucking frame. Fedor was essentially a 185'er going against the best.

GSP is a better MMA'er than Anderson. He is more well rounded.

I've never seen the hype over Anderson.

Agree with the Silva and GSP comments but Jones isn't there just yet, on his way no doubt but still some proving to do.

I wonder if Rogan will feel the same way if Weidman beats Silva. Phone Post 3.0

Anderson is the greatest. His worst losing streak is 1, Fedor lost 3 in a row. That's one year of fighting for the average pro fighter, Fedor went a calender mma year without winning, during his prime( both him and Anderson are pretty much the same age), that doesn't scream greatest to me.

Fedor was a great fighter and his career is stellar, but I cant put him and his 3 fight losing streak ahead of a guy whos record and career are just as good if not slightly better, with no losing streak at all, and call him the goat.

Nobody at any weight-class has ever "made it look easy" like Anderson has against so many opponents at two (2) weight-classes. 

Other fighters have fought over multiple weight classes (Hendo, Edgar, BJ), or as the smaller-guy in a bigger division (Fedor, Hendo, Edgar, BJ), or are so dominant in their division that many fans clamor for them to go up (Bones, BJ).

However, not a single one of those other bad-asses do what Anderson does, which is make their opponents appear to be clumsy, fumbling, slow, awkward and unskilled amateurs.  It is uncanny, mesmerizing, nigh-other-worldly and it unequivocably separates Anderson Silva from every other mixed-martial-artist on planet Earth.

Every time Anderson steps in the ring, magic can and often does happen.

Not a hater at all; I just don't think he is the goat. The majority of his fights are in an era riddled with controversy. From the yukuza being involved and fixed fights. I know he's great I just feel Anderson is way better. Phone Post
