Read my top post so you know I'm not switching sides, I also think Filho, Lindland, and Hendo are the top 3 185ers...in that order as well, but I think Silva is getting a bit more criticism than he deserves. His BJJ is top notch, he's absolutely sick with his long legs. His aprawl can't be hated on by yesterday performance either because it is a known fact that he had surgery on btoh knees 11 weeks ago and they were both very sore. So I agree with exactly what you are saying except I will still hold off on my decision towards his sprawl. I seem to recalla past fight where silva showed his sprawl was up to par but cant remember which one it was off the top of my head

I agree with jdun11. Anderson needs to work on his sprawl. I thought Anderson was gone when Lutter was GnP on him. He was damn lucky that Lutter fell for his trap and tried to take his arm for a submission. Because if he didn't, the ref would have stopped it.

No I never thought he was its all about Filho
The reason that people thought Silva is the best is because most people here are **** riders that hop from one to the other

I m prolly missing some guys, but that's how I feel.
I purposely left out Frank Shamrock - he hasnt fought enough lately.
I woulda put Busta alot higher...I think he is the most underrated fighter in MMA history, and if your gonna put Chonan, and Suloev you gotta put the best fighter evahhh in there and that is THE NYBA himself Phil Baroni!!

Agreed about the Murillo thing,but he is just winding down-thats why I put his so low. Hes gotta be over forty man...
I guess Baroni&Lawler could be in the Okays category. Kikuta, Horn are couple of other guys I forgot about. I did that list in the moment...

I never thought Silva was unstoppable in the first place, Lutter made him look like a newly born fawn in the Octagon. I think if Rich Franklin fights Silva again and goes for the take down instead of standing with him he'll take his belt back.

Besides Silva making Lutter tap out, Silva got owned the whole fight which was nice to see. If Lutter was feeling better, he would have knocked his ass out at the end of round one. He must have had close to no energy by the looks of it. Silva still got rocked though and his confidence went down the toilet.

Silva would all give Lindland, Filho, and Hendo tough fights, i'd say they'd be coin flips in terms of whod win...

Those of you who believe that Rich would win in a rematch i'd disagree with...Rich is a banger, he isnt a world class grappler/gnp'er like the top guys mentioned...in terms of their ground games, i think its a wash between Anderson and Rich (in fact, if anyone would get an advantage, i'd think its Anderson because of his sweeping ability from the guard)...on the feet, Anderson clearly has an advantage...in sum, Anderson's just a bad matchup for Rich...
