Now moving onto the hands-down greatest UFC fighter of all-time, Anderson "The Spider" Silva. He is on a 13-fight win streak, and holds the records for longest UFC win streak, and most title defenses.
He has a black belt in Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Taekwondo, and is even a yellow rope in Capoeira. Not to mention his prowess as a Muay Thai fighter, which while unranked, is probably on the level of black belt as well.
Even though it is most likely that no one will defeat him, we must give a review of the options he has to fight.
He is currently scheduled to fight Yushin Okami in a rematch of Silva's Rumble on the Rock Disqualification loss. I believe that Okami has the wrestling ability to get Silva down and the submission defense not to pull a Sonnen and get put in a triangle.
While he probably isn't the very best fighter Anderson has faced, I believe he presents the biggest challenge of current options.
Other than Okami, Silva has seemingly defeated every fighter near the top of the division, and with Marquardt moving down to 170, there goes another quality option. For now, we can only look forward to the future, with a fighter such as Chris Weidman.
Weidman has the overall game to be a contender right now, and over time will only get better, seeing as he is only 27 years of age.
His ground game is incredible with a strong wrestling base to complement his purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu, while his standup is very crisp as well. In his last fight at UFC 131, he submitted Jesse Bongfeldt via a Guillotine that looked like it might just live up to its name.
I am also a huge fan of Brian Stann, and I believe he actually has the best chance at unseating Anderson Silva as the top dog at 185.
He is SO powerful for the division that I think he might be arguably the strongest fighter there. Not to mention he is incredibly skilled as a fighter in general.
I look forward to his development and waiting to see how much long Silva decides to fight before he finally retires.
