Totally disagree with this. Olympic wrestler 20 years ago or not, weight-cutting gets harder with age, no doubt about it. Part of being a human being.

...Ajax cmon don't be ridiculous...

We are not arguing in what fight Silva had the mostly difficulty, we are arguing who is Anderson best win....Hendo is Silva best win.

What has Sonnen done to deserve that ? Hasn't beaten anybody, got given his last fight decision to get this fight...

The guy lost by submission 8 times....

Sonnen is NOT Silva best win...

So did Lee Murray. So did Chonan. So did Takase. So did Azerado. Sonnen is a tin can. Face it you bought into his mouth and hype and now see Silva's two fights with him as proof of his legitimacy. I mean this is a guy who couldn't even beat Gono. And who has a TKO loss to Terry Martin. Laughable.

Preach reverend. Problem with these noobs they don't know anything outside of the UFC and buy into the UFC marketing and hype. Chonan OWNED Silva with the GREATEST sub of all times. Likewise Takase did the same in his guard. **** even Lee Murray gave Silva hell for 3 rounds. Silva really came into his own in the UFC. But all this talk about him being the GOAT solely because he's undefeated in the UFC is F'in ridiculous.

10 post noob laying a beat down on the Trolls.
And if he moved up to 205 he'd get completely raped by Jones. Id pay good money to see that.

Silva

He's beaten and finished too many top level fighters not to be ranked #1

Anybody who voted for Fedor is badly mistaken here !!!!!!!

Of course it's ridiculus, yet he's the only guy to go this long undefeated, Silva was still improving at the age Fedor was "shot"
