NOBODY... I think Anderson beats Vitor, then Marquardt, then a 205er and then loses to RJJ in boxing so it doesn count i this discussion.

Favs
HW-Brock Lesnar
LHW-Forrest Griffin, Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans & Gegard Mousasi
MW-Chael Sonnen
WW-All hail GSP
LW-Frankie Edgar
FW-Kenny Florian & Mark Hominick
BW-Don't really have one but I love their fights

I am surprised at how many are picking Shogun. Anderson would beat him dominantly. Shogun had a speed advantage against Machida but Anderson is faster then both of them.

Anderson's advantage is a long reach (leg and arm) and excellent muay thai knees and elbows. What fight did Anderson show a huge hand or leg speed advantage?

Machida has faster hands and reflexes than Silva.

I would say the only people to give him a run for his money would be:

GSP
Shogun
Hendo
Machida
Rampage
Vitor
MOusasi

I agree that Tito may be under rated but his stand up is still mediocre. If Chuck pummels Tito then Silva is going to have an even easier time. Silva's TDD isn't great but he is quick enough to stay standing enough to light Tito up like a Christmas tree.

Shogun could but he needs to fight a near perfect fight and this is coming from a Shogun fan.

This is true, he is only going to get better. He hasnt even grown into his frame yet.

well i thought he looked faster than forrest,irving,lindland, and cote. the first three might not be the best examples but i always thought he was one of the faster guys in the ufc.
