    Aside from Google calling him Spider Man, this is the widely considered GOAT and at 45 years young, has given everything he possibly could to this sport.


    He’s coming back to fight a murderer like Hall. For what? Fame? Money? No. He just loves it.


    Man is a fucking legend of legends.

    They remember. They also remember he popped twice.

    Definitely an all time great, but the “greatest” is up for debate.

    I’m critical of Silva at times, but that KO loss near the end of his career isn’t indicative of very much.

    I use the that guy is my hero commentary but when I think of Anderson Silva.

    if anyone reading was a fan from 07? To like 2014? You remember the tear Anderson Silva was on. You knew that guy was gonna do something amazing every fight, and for a long time he did just that.

    sucked a lot when he started losing.

    Anderson Silva is one of my all time favorite fighters....coming back to fight at age 45 is ridiculous and he is very close to getting into BJ Penn territory as he is 1-6 with one no contest in his last 8 fights. So he just loves to fight...no fame no money...so what does that have to do with us? RETIRE ALREADY....FEDOR...RETIRE....PENN...RETIRE.....you think they stopped LOVING IT?....so go to a bar and get drunk and fight, fight your tits off it you like fighting so much. Dana White should be ashamed of himself giving him a headline fight, milking him...SMH...yeah right, out of respect? When does respect end? Never? Then I guess we're gonna see a UFC 475 with a 65 year old fighting Fedor at 66 and BJ on the undercard having lost 41 fights in a row and we'll do it out of respect because we give fighters fights out of respect........RETIRE ALREADY

    Silva is the GOAT. No one else went up a weight class DURING THEIR TITLE RUN and had 3 literal highlight real KO's. (one against a former lhw champ and another against a guy Jones couldn't finish) That holds a lot of weight in my opinion. Plus his 10 title defenses and never being stripped or vacating.

    Hall wins. Anderson shouldn’t be in a cage at his age.
