Silva is amazing and I have him at #2 all time (Behind Georges) but you can't argue that there were other fighters who had much harder resumes like Shogun, GSP and Penn
Yeah, I'd say this^^ and the ridiculous nature of the extreme Silva fans, who essentially think/say that Weidmans two wins were "flukes", when Weidman controlled every aspect of each fight until the end. Silva is one of the greatest, top 3, definitely the greatest MW of all time. His hardcore fan base is delusional, and that tends to make people rag on things a bit here and there.
