During Tuesday's media teleconference to promote UFC 162, middleweight champion Anderson Silva was asked to name the four greatest fighters in MMA history, pound for pound.

“In my opinion, B.J. Penn is No. 1," replied Silva. "And then Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell and then Royce Gracie.”

Do you agree with Silva's all-time great ranking?
1. BJ Penn
2. Randy Couture
3. Chuck Liddell
4. Royce Gracie

Including Silva, who many feel is the greatest fighter in the history of the sport, what are your top five? Who is your #1?

Silva fights Chris Weidman at UFC 162, live on PPV, July 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

BJ had the potential to be one of the greatest, but bouncing up and down weight classes hurts his legacy. When he focused on LW, he was amazing.

If GSP isn't in his top 4, he shouldn't look at a duper fight with him. Do the JBJ fight instead. Phone Post 3.0

Also, if your Top 5 list does not include Derek Jeter then it means jack shit.

Titles in 2 weight classes = HoF, period. - BJ, Randy
BJ also fought to a draw at 205 with a (future) champion at that weight class.

Royce submitted 4 guys in one night.
I'll say it again, slowly...I N O N E N I G H T !
No will ever (get to) do that again.

And I kinda think he just threw Chuck in that list because he's too humble to name himself.
