LAS VEGAS - With a stack of accolades that has piled up over the past six years, it's easy to make a case for Anderson Silva as one of the greatest fighters of all time. But when the UFC's middleweight titleholder steps into the cage Saturday against Chael Sonnen at UFC 148, there might be more than a belt on the line. Many contend that the 37-year-old Brazilian already tops the all-time greats list. A victory against Sonnen could seal the deal and put him ahead of the likes of Fedor E read news >>

"I always talk about a fight that most people don't bring up, it's when I fought Travis Lutter in Montreal. Basically in the fight I had all the answers I needed (to win) but it was just failed execution at every point. I ended up in the worst possible scenario that I could have been in.

I found a way out of the situation and read news >>

Anderson Silva, the greatest fighter in MMA history, has been reduced to an “easy payday” for Chris Weidman, with all due respect, of course. The skepticism has apparently worn thin on the reigning UFC middleweight champ, who soundly defeated Silva in back-to-back bouts in 2013. In most cases, an undefeated record, two wins over Silva and a successful title defense against Lyoto Machida would have been more than enough to convince the masses. But for Weidman, the road as champion has been a brok read news >>

Anderson Silva once stood atop the UFC's middleweight mountain, dominating opponent after opponent in mesmerizing and devastating fashion. But in stepped a confident Chris Weidman to put an end to Silva's reign as champion by stopping him in back-to-back contests in 2013. Ten months after his latest loss to the current middleweight champion, Silva doesn't think he's the most complete fighter the middleweight division has to offer.

Anderson Silva is arguably the greatest MMA fighter who has ever lived. Chael Sonnen revolutionized the process of hyping a UFC fight, creating and boasting an entirely fearless character.
