Honestly


Jon Jones is the current best.


Anderson is the all time goat, but i think Jon jones will surpass.

GSP is clear third.

Fedor 4th.

Tilla - 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.


Fedor faked a hand injury many times when Cro Cop was really fucking dangerous and they were about set a date for their match.

Fedor beat many freak shows and IMO his only great wins are:

1. Prime Nog 3 times
2. Prime Cro Cop
3. A 2004 juiced up the grill coming of a miracle KO of Cro Cop Kevin Randleman
4. A 5 fight winning streak Arlovski

which are 6 fights out of 40!

Faked a hand injury? Just shut the fuck up. You have nothing to show that Fedor did fake any hand injury. It's a fact that he broke his hands real bad against TK and his left hand was badly injured going into the Cro Cop fight (there is video footage of Bas telling Cro Cop about it shortly before their fight).

Stop being a slanderous cocksucker and show some respect.

Listen kiddo...pretty suspicious seeing Fedor with a wrapped up hand saying his hand will be ok but just after Mirko demolishes someone he backs out of the fight.

The fight was being talked about in 2003. It took them 2 fucking years to make the fight when both were winning?

Fedor watched the Alex and Magomedov fight real fucking close hoping CC would lose...

He's an unbelievable fighter. I don't believe in GOATS because of how young the Sport is, but he's definitely one of the greats. He's a Legendary, HOF, Pioneer. Weidman better be ready.

"he definitely is. Anyone who is huge NBA fan will know Jordan was overrated and given tons of advantages. They changed the rules of the game for him and refs were always on his side."

While I respect he rest of your points, this one is laughable... Phone Post 3.0

Let's hear your rebuttal. You probably don't know shit about the NBA and Michael Jordan. If my argument is so laughable it should be easy for you to debate. Only an idiot says something like, "this one is laughable" without backing it up. Put up or shut up.
I probably don't know shit, other than watching pretty much every Bulls game from 1986 on til he retired. It's just funny to hear people say Jordan was overrated. Overrated how? And by whom? And changing the rules? If Jordan played in today's game where you can't even hand check he would average 50 per game.

I don't need to prove to you why it's laughable, any TRUE NBA fan would agree that it's laughable, saying Anderson Silva is like Jordan in the backhanded way you described. I would think a more apt comparison to Anderson from a different sport would be the oft mentioned Roy Jones Jr... But hey I don't know shit about Michael Jordan or the NBA! Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, Nog who was known UNIVERSALLY as THE BEST HW on the planet, and he had the most dangerous guard.

Fedor was SUPERMAN punching his way in and out of that shit like nothing AND he was using Nog's face as a speedball...

Like beating PRIME NOG THREE TIMES means nothing! HAHAHAH.

CC was the most dangerous HW on the planet when Fedor beat him.

The universal best two HW's on the planet and Fedor beat them.

Unlike Cain who gets starched in 70 seconds and then takes 25 minutes and 8'000 punches to beat the same guy a year later..

Miracle? Kevin timed that hook beautifully.

You forget that when Fedor was beating the likes of these two, Andy was getting subbed by Japanese cans.

He watched the Alex and Magomedov fights real close and wanted them to win because they were his teammates.

And as for the other stuff, the fight happened when Cro Cop was at his peak, had rounded out his game with Werdum and was as ready to take on Fedor as he ever would've been. Fedor dominated every aspect of the fight all the same.

Fedor will go down as the Heavy Weight GOAT, no doubt about it.

But the things that Anderson has done in the past few years, and the amount of time he has been dominant in the UFC is unparalled. I love  fedor as much as anyone but you cannot deny Anderson of the P4P GOAT title.

and Anderson's Great wins are:

2. Belfort

thats 6 fights out of 33

an no, if your not gonna count Sylvia, Coleman, Herring, Schilt, Fujita, Hunt or even Rogers who was top 10 at the time then Anderson doesnt get Sakurai, Nate, Horn, & Griffin.

nowdays I would agree. All stars are given benefits. In Jordan's day he was untouchable. He was above all others. No other stars were getting the calls Jordan was. And about changing the rules. Look it up. Its a fact.

And who said Jordan was overrated? Is this a serious question? A lot of people. You clearly aren't well informed on this subject.

"If Michael Jordan was here right now, I would say to him: When you are so great that the league tries to change the rules in attempt to stop you, then you can claim you are the best ever. Every rule change I have seen during your career has been meant to enhance your game"

- Wilt Chamberlain

"Without question, no hesitation, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the best player I ever played against. Not just the best center, he was the best player, period. He was better than Magic, better than Larry, better than Michael."

- Bill Halton

"His (Jordan's) incredible athletic ability, charisma and leadership on the court helped to make basketball popular around the world - no question about that. But in terms of greatness MJ has to take a backseat to The Stilt."

- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

"Michael Jordan was a great player, but he won after Chicago got Pippen, Grant, and those other players to go along with him, because for a while they couldn't beat Detroit...The Media has now anointed Michael Jordan the greatest of all time? No, I don't think he is."

- Oscar Robertson


I could give many more examples. Is my argument so laughable now? You are so uninformed/misinformed. Go do some reading.

Larry Byrd was better than Jordan. Go check the stats of every game Byrd played against Jordan. It's obvious who the better player was.
Ok sure guy, I'll post all the quotes from hundreds of former players, coaches, and owners that say Jordan is the greatest.. Your argument is ridiculous. Larry "Byrd" is better then Michael Jordan in your book? Another laughable statement, and a statement that tells me I know longer need to argue this stupid point with you. Phone Post 3.0

Bofbro - Lets ask the Brazilian fans who they think the GOAT is.
Oh already been done, landslide for Fedor methinks.

Fedor has beat more UFC belt holders than anyone else, but he gets shit on because he's never fought in the UFC.

He gets shit on because he never fought anyone HOLDING the ufc belt. Phone Post

And Usain Bolt never won in the Special Olympics.

Larry "Byrd" is better then Michael Jordan in your book? Another laughable statement, and a statement that tells me I know longer need to argue this stupid point with you. Phone Post 3.0

You haven't even debated me. All you have done is pose a few questions. You act like you know everything and that and try to mock me, but you haven't refuted anything I have said or offered any counter points/ argument. Like I said earlier put up or shut up.

No mockery here my friend... Bring your talents south to the OG

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.


Fedor faked a hand injury many times when Cro Cop was really fucking dangerous and they were about set a date for their match.

Fedor beat many freak shows and IMO his only great wins are:

1. Prime Nog 3 times
2. Prime Cro Cop
3. A 2004 juiced up the grill coming of a miracle KO of Cro Cop Kevin Randleman
4. A 5 fight winning streak Arlovski

which are 6 fights out of 40!

and Anderson's Great wins are:

1. Henderson
2. Belfort
3. Franklin x2
4. Sonnen x2

thats 6 fights out of 33

an no, if your not gonna count Sylvia, Coleman, Herring, Schilt, Fujita, Hunt or even Rogers who was top 10 at the time then Anderson doesnt get Sakurai, Nate, Horn, & Griffin.


How you could NOT count sakurai as a top win for Anderson is baffling.

#1 ww in the world at the time and most people's #1-2 p4p in the world as well. Phone Post

Also if you're going to argue Rogers because he was top 10 then compare both of their total top 10 wins. I think Silva is at 17 to fedor's 12 or something like that. Phone Post
