Okay, I'll go ahead and admit it. I'm extremely biased towards Anderson Silva, and Blackhouse as whole. I passionately root against Machida, Nogueiras, Silva, Aldo, etc. as often as possible.
I'm also not a fan of Hughes, Penn, Sherk, Dana, or Coleman, yet I put them on my list.
1) Longest unbeaten streak in the UFC (2006-Present day)
2) Most title defences in the UFC (8)
3) Highest Striking accuracy (76%)
4) Was in the main event fight of the UFC's record sell out at the Bell Center in Montreal. The attendance was 21,451. Not even UFC 100 beat that.
Well thats 4 and I could prob dig a little deeper and find more, so there's that. Now please stop making uneducated statements about A.Silva doing less then Tito.
To be fair, Montreal has a huge MMA market, and Chuck Liddell was on the card, and arguably still one of the most popular draws for the UFC at the time.
Yeah, Anderson has set striking records, title defense records and whatnot.
THAT'S NOT THE ******* POINT
I'm not talking about UFC striking records, title defenses, undefeated streaks, and whatnot. Yes, those are all very good things, but at the end of the day does that justify the promotion and image of the UFC? That's why I listed guys like Randy, Tito, Chuck, etc. They had an impact on the growth and promotion of the sport. Anderson has had little to none compared to Randy, Dana and company.
You're better off just putting your favorite fighters on the list than coming here trying to justify your bias for certain fighters.
So just go ahead and pick the fighters that mean a lot to you personally. No need to try and base it on specific accomplishments because as it stands, half of your list is kinda
I've already addressed the second and third parts of your paragraph in my earlier comments, and I don't feel like repeating myself.
My favorite fighters are in my signature. I didn't list Rich, Josh, Jan, Phil Davis, or Cro Cop. Randy is one of my favorite fighters, but he's revered by the MMA community, and that's why I put him on the list.
So this part of your arguement itself is ridiculous and poorly constructed.
