He submitted Anderson back in 2003 and hasn't done anything great ever since.

What i'm drooling about is Mousasi-Anderson. The similarities are crazy.

Mousasi would get killed by silva, he does not have the speed to hang in there.

Chris Weidman style wise is the worst match up however Weidman is way too young and inexperienced, it's a shame we'll likely never see the two fight in their primes. Weidman will more than likely be the heir to the 185 throne and with his great wrestling and improving ju-jitsu this guy is gonna be a serious force and a striker's worst nightmare.

One of the best strikers in the division, never been knocked out, very elusive and holds K1 victories over Musashi and Kyotaro. I'd say he'd hang in there.

I don't think so imo, he is good but silva is on another level. Look at his last fight Jardine was able to hand in there, although i felt gegard clearly won. Silva is just on a different level he would put Gegard to sleep. Gegard needs to fight some real competition before i even consider him a top contender.

That's a valid point. That has to be the coolest resume for a fighter to have wins over Anderson Silva and MR. X hah.

Given today's talent pool, I've been thinking this myself lately... (Obviously, contingent upon Weidman continuing his development, and not going all Brandon Vera on us)

Everyone is going to keep looking for challenges to Silva. There is only 1 thing that will beat Silva and that is father time. Other than that there is nobody and i mean NOBODY in the UFC or anywhere else at 185lbs that can beat the Anderson Silva of today. Granted in a few years when he slows down someone will be lucky enough to fight him at the right time and beat him.
