The man has the talent to prove he's the best in the game there is no questions about it. Aside from Jon Jones I don't think their is anyone at ww,lhw,mw that poses a serious threat to the man. If the results are the same, why not take the easy road to make a quick buck? If I was Anderson Silva and know I can smash Rockhold and cung lee without even breaking a sweat and make millions why not? He would be a fool not to do it. This is his job he's a prize fighter.

I know its his job but that doesn't mean i wanna see the supposed GOAT take on bum fights like bonnar, cung le, rockhold right now etc. if i wanna see anderson fight i want against real competition like weidman or hendo again or jon jones or even lombard if he outgrapples okami well so theres a possibility of him not being dumb enough to trade with anderson

As for Chris Wiedman let's be real he may be the only true talent left at MW, but would anyone put their lifesaving that he will beat Anderson? Your take away the chael fights, Anderson Silva has never came close to losing, or has even been in a situation where your like o shit he's going to lose.

Any man that can KO forrest with a slap, make vitor hands look like an amateur, finish bonnar...the list goes on, but when Anderson fights he truly makes professional ufc fighters look like they belong in a Kimbo Slice youtube video.
I agree 100% with this...

I dislike Dan but partially agree with his assessment. It seems like Anderson does actively try to avoid wrestlers ... he wins in the end, but they give him a tough time, and one day he might not.

Don't agree with the Rockhold bit, but I feel Weidman is another elite wrestler that Anderson has been trying to dodge lately via his mouthpiece Soares, hoping Weidman loses and automatically solves his problem.

That's the point, all of those guys you mention are STAND UP FIGHTERS. No one is going to beat Anderson standing up, never ever, not even close. Not unless he's fighting at 50 with a walking stick.

Take away the Sonnen fights (wrestler), and you have Hendo (wrestler) who won the first round, Lutter (Grappler with good wrestling) who won the first and had him mounted, and Takase - long time ago and a can as far as overall MMA goes, but great wrestling and top control, who beat him badly.

You have to look at MMA from a style perspective ... of course Anderson can make stand up all stars look like clowns, that's the point of the thread. It's the wrestlers he doesn't look stellar against, and it's a big coincidence there are so few in such a long career.

He looked pretty good against Hendo and Chael (2nd fight) imo. Made them both look stupid. What did Hendo actually do in the first round? Exactly the same as Chael did in the first round of their second fight. Nothing.

Why should Andy be in a rush to fight Weidman now? Weidman maybe the biggest prospect at 185 at the moment, but he has ONE decent win. ONE. When a guy is 16-0 in the UFC with 10 title defenses, why should he rush to fight THAT guy?

Yes Weidman vs Silva is a fight I want to see, but does it really matter if he actually has to beat a couple top contenders first?

The same people rushing for Weidman are the same ones laughing at Hendricks for getting passed over. Shocking.

what on earth does he have to gain by waiting? he won't be able to outstrike him by waiting and his grappling is already good enough as it is, having more fights just gives anderson more tape on weidman to study and capitalize on it, and then theres the fact that silva fights 2 times a year and there is no one worthy of fighting at mw right now outside of weidman.

Why should he get to pick his fights as champ though?

Yeah like you said, he has nothing to gain by fighting Weidman, but by that logic we should get to see nothing but an endless array of Cotes and Leites level guys being fed to Anderson just because he doesn't want to lose. And that's when you get the situation we have in boxing, with these primadonnas dodging each other and having pristine records. I can see why Anderson would want that, but why would you as a fan approve of that?

Weidman doesn't have to put together any more contender wins, he is 5-0 in the UFC with two wins over top 5 MWs (Maia and Munoz), that is more than enough to warrant title shots for just about anyone else.

If it doesn't satisfy Anderson, so what? That shouldn't be his call. If he's healthy, he just needs to defend his belt and fight the most deserving guy, period. And in the MW division, that's clearly Weidman, no other MW right now has the streak this guy has.

It's bad for the sport when a champ gets to pick his fights, just look at boxing.

As far as GSP jumping Hendricks, I'm against that too. He's one of my favorite fighters, but this champs picking fights BS needs to stop if the sport of MMA is to remain a sport. Do the defending NFL champs get to pick which team they face in the finals? Do they get to say, "Nah, the Patriots suck, so what if they made the finals ... give them another few rounds. I don't feel like it round now, got nothing to gain".

The only scenario where I would agree with the champ denying a challenger is if the challenger has been recently busted for cheating/steroids, in that case the champ has every right to make the cheat work his way back instead of having to most likely fight an unrepentant roid gorilla right after his token suspension is over.
