The number one-ranked pound for pound fighter in the world needs absolutely no introduction.
In Silva's octagon debut in 2006, he faced off against slugger Chris "The Crippler" Leben where he introduced himself to America and the UFC by landing 100 percent of his strikes and stopped Leben within 49 seconds of round one.
The pound for pound king most recently moved up in weight and displayed his lethal striking at the light heavyweight division against former champion Forrest Griffin. In what may have been Silva's most impressive performance yet, Silva ended the fight with a first round knockout after striking Griffin to the canvas multiple times before sending him lumbering to the ground.
The Spider is the most dominant and enthralling striker to ever step foot inside of the Octagon. Silva's fights much seem like sparring sessions to him as he doesn't take hardly any damage and delivers lethal strikes at will.
Holding T(KO) wins over a list of fighters in both the middleweight and light heavyweight divisions "The Spider" has taken out: Rich Franklin(2x), Nate Marquardt, Chris Leben, and James Irvin. Just think we haven't even covered his submission victories either.
