Hope you don't mind but I've also posted this video in the Are you prepared thread, as I think it fits perfectly into the argument going on there at the moment!

This is almost fap material.










Is there any question who the best is?

McCall, Faber, Aldo, Nate, Nick, Lyoto, TBD, Hunt

Imo, definitely a question who's the best. He's done amazing incredible things. He does have a weakness though. I don't think anyone will come along with his reflexes and accuracy for a VERY long time. But I think the "best" are the guys like Jones and Gsp... Who are great in every area.

Anderson is amazing. I'm not taking that away from him. I just don't think you can call a guy "the best" who had a record set for the most strikes landed against.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Chael itself calls them "touches", why do peoples insist in calling those strikes?

Touches or not, either way it was compete domination. Not a lucky Haymaker or anything like that. But a glaring weakness which was exploited.

Fight metric counted them as strikes. So be it.

GSP and Jones are a long way behind Silva. They are yet to defeat adversity like Anderson has.
