    For everything Anderson Silva did in his prime, gotta be him.

    JDS beat Crocop standing up and made him quit. Also give Cain his 1st loss.

    JDS was too limited as a striker to be considered the best. And im a JDS fanboy.

    Silva performed artwork WHILE KOing people. He had flash along with substance.

    Fedor blitzed so many people it’s him. Yes not technically beautiful striking but he got the job done.

    I can't think of anyone in MMA who made me think, "Holy shit!" with his striking as many times as Anderson Silva.

    Poll question should be: who is the best after Anderson Silva?

    8-Weapons Grand Slam

    I name this to describe completing left-hand (T)KO, right-hand (T)KO, left-foot (T)KO, right-foot (T)KO, left-knee (T)KO, right-knee (T)KO, left-elbow (T)KO, and right-elbow(T)KO.

    Who is/was the closest to completing this feat?

    About fifteen years ago, I told my best friend "You won't believe who is the best MMA fighter out there. It's this Russian, Teddy Ruxpin-built dude."

    Fedor's lack of beautiful style WAS his beautiful style.

    This. Prime Silva was miles ahead of any current or past striker. I’d probably give 2nd to prime Jones, tough one though

    If you are going to add names just because they are overall greats, like Jones, then why not add GSP too?

    Cain dropped prime JDS numerous times. Replace JDS with Cain
