UFC 129: Dethroning a Champion, 3 Fighters That Could Take out Anderson Silva

I’d like to start off by presenting some stats that I think will help introduce who and what this article is all about.


35 years old, 28-4, 16 wins coming by way of KO/TKO, and currently on a 14-fight win streak.

29 years old, 21-2, 13 wins coming by way of either KO/TKO or submission, and currently on an eight-fight win streak.

33 years old, 25-11-1, 11-4 since 2006, and has had win streaks of 5+ three different times (5, 5, and 6).

23 years old, 13-1, 11 wins coming by way of KO/TKO or submission, 7-1 in the UFC and his only loss came by way of disqualification.

Three of these four fighters are champions and one is a former No. 1 contender. If you’re a hardcore fan like me you can probably figure out on your own who is who. In case you can’t, don’t worry. I’ll elaborate in a moment.

Between now and the end of Anderson Silva’s UFC career, whenever that may be, it’s a mystery if he will ever lose again.

Whether he faces defeat inside the Octagon or not, I believe that there are a handful of fighters in a few divisions who have the ability, skill set, and real potential of actually getting the job done. 

I decided to choose a fighter from each division that could theoretically fight him starting with Welterweight (170 lbs.) and work up to Light Heavyweight (205 lbs.)
