The greatest thing about Anderson Silva winning on Saturday night was that we can now get rid of this annoying “Fedor P4P” argument. It’s now a lock: Anderson Silva is the best pound for pound fighter in the world, no debate. He hasn’t just beaten everyone he’s faced, he’s destroyed them. He’s literally embarassed them. Rich Franklin ended up needing a new face both times they fought. Dan Henderson left the Octagon on Saturday with a look in his eyes that you normally reserve for dudes coming back from Iraq. Anderson Silva is the fucking best. Period. Tampax. Heavy flow styles.
At this point there’s really no one left for Silva to face. Or correction: there’s no one left for Silva to face that has any kind of serious chance of beating him. I’ve wracked my brain trying to think of anyone at 185 with any kind of chance. Lindland? He’s like a smelly Hendo. Okami? He’ll get his soon enough. The only guys who might be able to beat Anderson are BJ Penn and GSP, but even these guys would most likely lose on account of the size difference.
No, for real. Anderson Silva is simply the best.
