    Looking at this thread it's like Anderson Silva never existed.

    He was mythical in his prime days. He was so dominating, so exciting to watch, that most of his fights look fixed.

    BY FAR my favorite fighter of all time. I'd get chills when he walked to the octagon.

    Just because he was good doesn't make him a favorite. *Stockton slap

    I liked him when Wand was fighting him.
    Outside of that, I was more of a Gracie guy than a Sakuraba guy.

    Given his size, Sakuraba might have the most impressive list of opponents faced in MMA history

    Despite being only about 180 lbs, he frequently squared off against heavyweights


    He has fought:

    Kimo
    Carlos Newton
    Vitor Belfort
    Guy Mezger
    Igor Vovchanchyn
    Wanderlei Silva
    Rampage Jackson
    Cro Cop
    Randleman
    Little Nog
    Ricardo Arona
    Ken Shamrock

    Anderson
    BJ
    McGregor
    Jones
    GSP
    Wonderboy
    Rockhold
    TJ

    Pretty much in that order. Not at all happy about McGregor's BS with Mayweather, if/when it happens, I'll knock him down a few pegs.
