Unarguably Top 5 pound 4 pound fighter in the world. After beating Dan Henderson via rear naked choke, many people wonder who in MMA can beat Anderson.

Its clear that he is the best MW ... i think he need to defend mw titel for 4 - 5 times more to set a record and then move UP to LHW...
The best pound for pound the last 3 years and running! Solid techniques, power, accuracy, and respect for the sport. More Power to the Spider!
Arguably the best fighter on the planet. He has all the ability and skill needed to tear through nigh anyone. But, more importantly, his respect for the sport and other fighters makes him the fighter everyone wants to be like.
It would be nice to see him hand Cung Le a loss.
dude needs to move up to LHW so he can get some more notible wins under his belt before he retires. This man is the fedor of middleweight right now lol
my favorite fighter ever been scoping him out since pride. pound for pound best fighter ever. my hero
Yeah, he definitely gets that number 1 spot no question. I see 09' being another great year for him.

i like how no one can argue about him not being the best middleweight, i want to see him fight lyoto machida those two guys are as legit as it gets.
The Spider, what can I say...He is pure class & a fighting genius, I've seen everyone of his fights since his mecca days, when he was a skinny young man!! He has not changed his style & only his ground game has improved. He started from the bottom & worked his way up to be the best P4P fighter in the history of mma!! To me he doesnt have to change divisions as he doesnt have to prove anything, most UFC fighters are a joke & he proved that against Griffin. True mma fighters have the skills in martial arts not kickboxing, boxing & wrestling!! As you see today the best fighters have the pedegree in karate, mauy thai & bjj!!! So A.S and Machida would never happen as they are brothers & they will both rule there divisions for years to come...It's not A.S fault he destroys everyone, Dana White needs to bring in true mma talent for Silva to fight & make 195lbs class!!!
I'll admit the dude is good, but now he wins so much I don't really care for watching him. I know he's gonna win so I jus change the channel til the fight passes XD
The Spider. A freak of nature born to fight. This guy is the best fighter out there no doubt about it. Unfortunatelly Fedor and hin are separeted by to much weight. That's the fight I wold like to see.
O Anderson Silva é uma máquina e o oponente é a cana, no final da luta ele tá tomando a garapa e o "bagaço" do sujeito ta estendido no chão.
anderson silva vs fedor fight of the century
ANDERSON SILVA IS THE BEST STIKER IN MMA A 1ST DEGREE BLACK BELT IN BJJ UNDER MINATAURO NOGUERA, BLACK BELT IN TAEKWON DOE AND A BLACK BELT IN JUDO. ALSO HE IS ONE OF ONLY 3 MEN TO SUBMIT DAN HENDERSON AND HE WAS BETTER ON THE GROUND THAN THALES LEITHES FIGHT EVEN THOUGH IT SUCKED IT SHOWS THAT ANDERSON SILVA IS UNBEATABLE STANDING AND A GREAT GRAPPLER ON THE GROUND. ALSO HE HAS BEEN DOING MUAH THAI SINCE HE WAS 14 AND KNOW HES 34 ALSO HES VERY ELUSIVE AND HAS A VERY GOOD CHIN AND HAS TREMENDOUS KO POWER AND GREAT SUBMISSION POWER ANDERSON SILVA NUM 1
i wanna see him fight vitor i think it would be a great fight for him
How come they dont give Anderson Silva a title fight in light heavy weight. i say let him fight shogun then give him a title shot. a chance to hold 2 titles at the same time. only 2 fighters come to mind when they say best pound for pound fighter in the world and that is ANDERSON the spider SILVA and FEDOR.
I think he should stay at 205 permenatly.Whether he does or does not beat Vitor Belfort.
The best ever, period. Pound for pound #1 all time.
"the spider" and "the dragon" are my favorite male fighters and the best male fighters in mma.
there my favorite fighters to
Fedor should be number 1 on this list. ALL his stats are 9 or better. Silva got knocked out in 1 of his 2 only boxing matches. He's also been submitted twice, lost by decision, and was disqualified for an illegal blow. Silva is a freak, but not # 1. I would put him at #3 behind GSP. I feel GSP has fought tougher opponents(Matt Hughes and BJ Penn come to mind) than Silva up to now and Silva's weight class is VERY thin. However, GSP has been knocked out as well. So, the only undefeated man(30+ fights) in MMA should have top fighter honors. Silva is the "sexy" choice. Just my 2 cents.
I beg to differ. Silva has fought whomever had the balls to challenge him. Forrest Griffin and Rich Franklin come to mind. Fedor has also lost (just recently in fact) and Silva hasn't lost since... Don't worry I'll wait. And GSP? Come on man. He is an amazing fighter, but far from beastly. He just has a ground game second to none. In a stand up, I would even put Penn ahead of GSP. It's also a fact that since his inception into the UFC, Silva has knocked out 7 of his 11 opponents, only taking it to a decision twice. Any Maia is just lucky to have caught Silva on a day that he was being criticized for knocking opponents out too fast or he wouldn't have made it out of the second round by the looks of it. But I know you're paying him his due respect but I just feel it necessary to not count him out as, if not THE, a contender for the p4p best fighter title.
Anderson Silva is back this Saturday. I can't wait for it.

Lately Silva displays have been pitfull, and as a fan i found myself wishing he was kocked out last fight, so maybe he would realise what he's doing...
But thing is he's a man, capable of loosing sight for a moment, and with every1 saying ur the best in the world, that isn't that hard to happen...but as a man he's also capable of realising what a jackass he's beeing, and give us a better fight next time...i realy hope this happens soon, and when it does, it will defenatly be a fight worth watching...
Anderson silva is the P4P best in the world! Great job keep up the great work!
Anderson silva is like a living bruce lee
I hate his personality, but his fighting ability is clearly second to none. Its hard to believe his 35, seeing as his so freakisly fast.
YOU ARE THA BEST AND THA BEAST!!!! Cara, você é incrível! Eu berrei como um louco quando c pegou a merda do braço do Sonnen! hahahaha!
Ha Thats A Joke Chael Sonnen Showed Exactly What I Had Thought Anderson Silva Is Not Invincible And He Cant Be The Best P4P If He Cant Wrestle PERIOD
if ur serious ur the joke, no fighter is invincble, and ur saying he cant wrestle at all the reason chael took him down is because sonnen is one of the best wrestlers in the ufc, he makes fighters we thought were good wrestlers look bad. anderson has decent wrestling for a guy who doesnt train it that much and he was facing a guy whos trained it his whole life of course he made him look bad. and as for the P4P if anything that proves that anderson is the best because only the best can get beat up for 4 and half rounds and still win, wow.

wow are you as dumb as you sound. because sho gun and silva are both from brazel. sho gun is the man no one will argue with that. but all i have to say if it does happen hell ya a great fight. silva will still find a way on top. if forest can put him in a rear naked choke than what can a full health no broken ribs silva do to him. i am more interesed in seeing machita and sho gun go at it again.
I want to see Anderson fight Vitor. I think it would be a great fight but I think Anderson would probably pull it out. But I think Shogun would take out Anderson!
damn this kid is like IN LOVE with Shogun Rua .. he goes off to every fighters comment page comparing them all to Shogun lol wake up call kid this is Anderson Silva's time .. not Shoguns so hop off :D
not you MMA_PRIDE .. the Cull420 dude
I know, but saying that it's Anderson Silva's time and not Shogun's is just plain stupid.

the recipe to beat silva is be a beast as wrestler with KO power and a very (unbeleveably) good sumbission game and beat him up on the ground, effectively and power fully and submit him
chael had the chance but just wanted to hit him, dumb ass
Silva is one of the best fighters ever. He is almost impossible to stop right now... Some guy happen to almost get lucky last fight.... he won the lottery even doing what he did to silva and still losing.... that's that.

anderson is the best fighter period and he has nothing to prove his record speaks for itself it dont matter if he is white, black, or whatever he is the best. I would like to see him fight more at 205 cause he has 185 easy. He has beat every 205er he faced, how bout a title shot.
UFC_Fan24 (anonymous) 2 years ago
Anderson hasn't been knocked out, nothing more to say
He never fought with a great opponent. Just remember some men from PRIDE
Best MMA fighter in the world by far he's on another level!
