    Out of all the fighters who has been discussed as the best of all time, Fedor, GSP, Silva, it seems as though to me that there are lot of anti-fans for Anderson Silva than for the other two. Jones does have a lot of anti-fans, but he's still new to the discussion. There was a poll in Brazil that was held online for whom fans thought was the best of all time, and Fedor came on top of that poll by overwhelming majority of votes.

    For me, not to be disrespectful, but there's something very fake about Anderson Silva, that wasn't really found in GSP and Fedor. He really tries to be all caring and respectful at times, but if you actually see lots of his previous fights before UFC, he isn't all that respectful, and lot of cage antics does not really reflect what he tries to show himself to be. So, if you actually look at the public reaction to their huge losses, I think there were lot of people who were bit happy about the fact that he lost when Anderson did than when there were for GSP and Fedor.

    After 7 years of hearing how great Anderson Silva is best of all time, I still really don't see it. I mean, he was losing to Chonan when he got flying-heelhooked like a something out of a movie, contrary to what some people think happened. And when that happened, unlike what many people thinks, he was more experience in MMA than MOST top mma fighters in UFC and most UFC champions.

    His fanbase being the most obnoxious, vile, and childish of all active and retired fighters has something to do with it.

    Jesus are they pathetic. Sad individuals who would likely offer their girlfriend to Silva and raise his bastard child just so they can have "Anderson Jr." around the house.

    The fact that everyone still discredits him over a loss 7 years ago is one reason why people hated him. They can't think of anything else.

    Heroes lose then rise again and win. Speaking of movies don't you watch them? Rocky ring a bell? Any old school martial arts movie?

    He wears pink shirts. He talks in a high pitched voice and no one dared to come after his "weak division" to win UFC gold until this year? Haters were happy. Truth is Anderson Silva is a pink shirt wearing high pitched voice unassuming dorky nerd that was whooping everyone. Hate away. He finally lost and man you'd think Christ Weidman was giving out rapture passes for koing him.

    His fans just gloss over these fights but Silva earned a lot of ill will for those performances.

    In bed with your bitch, watching game of thrones,
    There aren't as many as his fangirls and apologists lead you to believe.
    On here, if you criticize anything he's done or think anyone is better than him, especially the kid that just took him down, clowned him and KO'd him, you're a "hater'

    Anderson Silva:

    Top striker. Very good jiu jitsu. Annoying antics and mind games.

    The Demian Maia, Thales Lates, Forrest Griffin, Patrick Cote, and Weidman fights all showed Silva's over-reliance on the latter to try to keep the fight where he wanted it. He even resorted to outright cheating in the Sonnen II fight with blatant short grabbing.

    Not a lot to love.

    So you'd rather watch a hump fest from Maia or Thales. Cote tried to be Anderson and messed up his knee. Forrest was an ex LHW champ. If I have a gun in a knife fight why not use a gun? Sonnen had karma on his side theres only so much you can crap on a mans life before it gets personal. Sonnen used his mom in a scam and cheated in MMA. Karma.

    Weidman beat him why aren't you happy?

    Anderson's fans changed Sherdog. Just isnt the same as years ago :(

    No matter what I say when it comes to Silva I end up in a flame war. Sucks

    I think more people probably hate his fans more than Silva himself.

    It's a natural backlash to the corporate hype machine.

    Anderson's greatness is getting shoved down the fans' throats by Zuffa's marketing and a lot of us like to think for ourselves.

    Fedor ONLY has the hardcore fans behind him. When he wins votes here and in Brazil, it's real.

    Silvas fans turned on him when he lost.

    That tells you all you need to know about that lot.

    "He took a dive". "Hes a clown"

    Eww. Find a different sport.

    And the WNers of course.

    Just saying, im not one of them, but dont act like it isnt true. :icon_lol:
