    I say Anderson, but i can definitely see the argument for Jones as i think Rashad, Machida, Rampage and Vitor are great title defenses.

    I used to think that, then I realized that anderson has already ventured out of his weight class and faced just as many champs as jones.

    Jones accomplishments in such a short period of time is impressive though

    Definitely Anderson right now. Probably Jones in a few years though, especially if he moves up to HW and dominates there as well.

    Anderson. This can't be serious yet. Jones only has like 5 good wins and when you factor in all Andersons records and how he wins it's not worth discussing yet.

    Silva is slightly ahead for now, but I see Jones advancing in due time.

    This poll is an insult to Anderson Silva's career.

    Asking the question shows just how incredibly dumb some people are.

    I think it is a discussion, Seeing as the Maia, Leites and Cote fights were underwhelming to say the least for Anderson.

    Jones destroying Rua, Rampage, Machida, Evans and Vitor is one of the greatest runs ever imo.

    I voted for Anderson. But i can definitely see an argument for Jones who should arguably be 12-0 UFC.

    Going by overall title defenses and spectacular finishes, Yes Silva, that's why i voted for him.

    But name 4 better wins for Anderson than

    Rua, Rampage, Machida, Evans

    I think Silvas best win is Hendo, he would stack up with them. Maybe Franklin and Vitor as well, but other than that?

    I don't see how people can't see the argument for Jones.

    Anderson Silva.

    10 title defenses! 15-0 in the UFC!

    For the people voting Jones, just a question. Does you voting Jones means you think Jones is overall GOAT?

    Silva for the time being. Ask this question in ten years and the answer will probably be different. Actaully probably less than ten years and the answer will be different since it won't take that long to surpass Andersons accomplishments

    Well Anderson is 16-0 in the UFC and before that he had victories over number 1 p4p fighter Sakurai, former UFC champion Carlos Newton, Jeremy Horn. He has top 5 wins in 3 weight classes.

    Silva at this point.

    Comparing a 15 year career to a ~5 year career especially with the 2:1 fight discrepancy skews things.

    This is a bit premature imo.

    Could be different in 2 years. If Jones were to defend against Sonnen, Gus and maybe Machida or Evans again. It would be a hard one to call.
