To this day I still think Anderson has yet to prove himself against top opposition and will continue to think so. Ali had Liston, Ali had Foreman, and Anderson had Chael Sonnen and Stephan Bonnar.

Seriously, when is this man going to have a career defining fight? Even Fedor had Nogueira and Crocop in their primes. He's not being declared the GOAT, he's being marketed to be the GOAT. There's a huge difference.
Ya'll must have forgot
Franklin x 2
Hendo for christs sake
Yeah he hasn't had the best opposition at times but who at MW has he avoided?

I'm not trying to deny Anderson's greatness, he is the most talented fighter I've ever seen by far. His ring IQ is unreal. You can not discredit the man's talent he is a true bad ass.

All I'm saying is how can you call him the greatest of all time when you look at the competition the man has faced? Where is his career defining fight that all other all time greats have? I love Rich Franklin, but he is in no way a career defining win. Not to mention Dan Henderson was coming off a loss. The Klitschko brothers never avoided anyone and dominated their division for the past decade. Are they the top 2 greatest of all time now?

Spider's career defining moment is his career. All of it. He just beats everybody. Can't see much wrong with that.

As you said above >>>

"He is the most talented fighter we've seen by far. His ring IQ is unreal, and you cannot discredit the man's talent he is a true bad ass".

End of story

I understand your sentiments but a few points

1. You can only beat whos in front of you
2. Who at middleweight has he ducked. Apart from Weidman (a relative novice) who else is there really who you think would even pose much of a challenge to a silva?
3. Whatever you think of his opposition he clowns them. He makes them look amateur and please don't try to diminish the Hendo win.

Only fighter I see beating Silva in this time is Jones. Whether that fight happens or not does not detract from Silva's greatness. He's proven as a legend, Jones is not at least not yet. Look forward to seeing what the future holds for these very talented fighters and I also hope Bonnar well.

I don't foresee a JJ fight, but it would be massive. I think Silva-GSP is more likely to happen now than ever, though, given GSP's injuries over the past few years. I would not disregard the win, though, and think it would be a great victory-- especially if Silva could do it at WW or a decent CW.

Only problem is, GSP may lose or look bad in his comeback before meeting Silva. Hopefully that doesn't happen, or he will likely get no credit for the win.

I call bullshit on this. I looked around the absolute best odds were 1/12 and that was hours before the fight.

For you to make one grand you would have had to lay down 12,000 minimum.

1) Most people don't have 12,000
2) If you laid 12,000 on this fight you would have to be really silly - or rich.
