Anderson Silva is the GOAT and has been for some years now, after building a resume that not even two disastrous losses to Chris Weidman could undercut last year. With current stars like Jon Jones and Jose Aldo still building their cases and legends like Royce Gracie, Matt Hughes and Fedor Emelianenko fading further into the past all the time, Silva’s claim to the throne appears safe. Or does it? With The Sp read news >>
