Difference is, the ones you've mentioned, Anderson beat all his opponents you've listed.

Lyoto on the other hand got destroyed by Jones, and lost to Rampage and Davis, so that list is pointless.

Anderson is a better striker than Lyoto. This place works based on your last fight. Silva had a long streak, while Lyoto lost a few fights. Now Lyoto's streak is longer than Silva's.

Lyoto always fights the same. He doesn't look for KO's, but does his game and it comes if it comes. If you don't attack him, he could easily low/middle kick you for 15 minutes, while missing the few headkicks he throws. Or he lands that headkick and it's over. Same approach.

My fav technique of his is the standing foot sweep off a left straight. He's really good at such a hard move.

Machida always beats any version of Anderson, he's just that much better.

You forgot to mention the part where he was middleweight champ aswell.

I'd say he's getting and has gotten the right amount of attention both in light heavy weight and now in middle weight. Also I think people got very interested in his move to middleweight period. KO'ing Munoz in the first round with a blocked head kick was icing on the cake. And now interest is at an all time high with his fight for the title against Weidman . So basically I disagree with the first portion of your post but agree with everything else Lyoto is a beast I enjoy seeing him knee wrestlers in the gut as they flail about.
