Anderson in his prime was far and away the best MW fighter ever... Maybe best fighter ever.

    IMHO, from his UFC debut in 2006 till Jones beatdown of Shogun in 2011... Silva was P4P num 1.

    Simply amazing fighter, super skilled and vicious finisher.

    Shame he had to use Peds to gain some edge :(

    U guys may post Anderson's gifs and images on here plz.

    dude was literally in the matrix. And it's all thanks to Seagal. Who is the founder and inventor of mixed martial arts.

    Silva's legacy will always be that if an ATG and one of the most exciting fighters we've ever seen.

    Striking yes, other ares he was considerably lacking to say he was P4P best

    Plus primarily fighting guys stylistically suited to him (brawlers, 1D bjj guys, jack of all trades but not elite types) helped 'the matrix' narrative also

    Very skilled though, but overall he had holes that other elite fighters with the right styles would have / could have exploited

    You have a good point. And if we were talking standup only... Silva would beat everyone at lhw too.

    I'll tell you a secret. All the guys he beat, except for Nick Diaz, were most likely on stuff too. So imo it doesn't tarnish Anderson's legacy one bit. Just my opinion.

    MW Great but he always fought guys who were suited for his style, then again it wasn't his fault, that's what the MW division was at that time. Once age and new more deadlier contenders appeared those holes were more predominant.
