Yeah, that's what I'm feeling.

I feel like Anderson is a King now in Brasil and the dude is in his late 30s and might just be chilling now...he'll probably be retired soon....someone will retire him if he's not smart enough to quit before then.

JDS is more entertaining than Anderson Silva.

Fedor
Penn
Liddell
Couture
Wanderlei
Cro Cop

Just off the top of my head. I had far more enjoyment watching the above mentioned fighters than I have Anderson, and most if not all of the above I consider legends and more important to the sport than Anderson.

If you are talking "time spent as champion" then yes, Anderson is way up there, but time spent as champion doesn't mean he's more entertaining than other fighters.

Couture, really?
Is the holding against the fence that entertaining?

Naaa. He's good fun to watch, but up to now none of his fights have come anywhere near Silva vs Leben/Franklin x 2 for sheer dynamic deconstruction. Watching Hendo gasping for air like a fish. Marquart getting a beatdown. The humiliation of Forrest and Okami. The the Abu Dhabi meltdown. Subbing Chael with 2 minutes to go. Knocking Vitor Belfort the feck out with his toes. You never know what the feck is about to happen. That's entertainment.

Come on now. Its been a glorious adventure so far. None of the other names mentioned have anywhere near the same variety of awesome moments. If you think they do... list them.

Couture beating Tim was far more adrenaline pumping and exciting than any fight Anderson has ever had when it happened. Him beating Liddell and Tito were also far more important and far more exciting and entertaining than any fight Anderson ever had at the time. You said name one, I named 6 off the top of my head.

However, just for argument sake, take him off the list. You still have multiple people that entertained far more than Anderson has as a whole.

Not a big fan of Anderson on a personal level, but he is the MMA GOAT, a living legend and I will be sad to see him hang them up, even though I hope he drops the strap to Sonnen.
