How many of these guys has Silva beat? Please, remind me.

Well, AS said it so it must be true. Why don't you try comparing him against his opponents in the cage at fight time. Holy smokes!!! He does look a lot bigger!!! Shocking!!!!

How bout you try and justify Hendo as a B or C level opponent? Or Franklin? Okami? Belfort?
You certainly didn't begin to state why the first post was wrong. I'll give you an aging Hendo and maybe an aging Belfort. Franklin? Okami? Please. Holding up other guys who also did well in a weak division, but couldn't cut it against the tougher competition in the other weight classes isn't going to help you.

Point of fact: AS was getting beat to a certain point in both fights. Then he got beat worse and lost.

the UFC is pretty good at paving the way for fighters they like, so who he beats obviously matters but assuming he takes the belt from chris that would be pretty impressive

Sorry to burst your bubble but a HW will never be goat. They cant jump around weightclasses.

Anyone seen Spongs recent fight? Not only would he kick with the leg he broke in half, he did so, it seemed, with even less fear than before. Like he knows hes got a metal rod and it likely wont break. Good luck to anyone fighting Anderson Silva if his is as good. Which I wouldn't doubt.

Lol. Good point, here I thought a natural LHW ruling HW division was the closest thing we'd ever have to it. And LHW Wand didn't want any anyways.

Fedor didnt last long enough into his 30's or go to the more dominate promotion. One of greatest but not goat. He needed like 3 solid good more years. He fadded fast though

You have to continue beating dat ass in your mid 30's to late 30's if you want that goat title. Especially with all the great fighters there have been. Jones is the exception hes youngest champ and has a real chance at greatness he doesnt have to go into his mid 30's for the goat title

It hurts to see how people doubt the true GOAT =(
