Ali is unique.

Silva is unique also.

I believe, when people will look back at Silva's career, 20 years from now, they will talk about him pretty much the same like they're talking about Ali right now.

The thing that separates these two however is: Ali had HUGE rivals when he was fighting: Frazier, Foreman or Norton.

The trilogy with Frazier is EPIC. And their 3rd fight - *The Thrilla in Manilla* - is (probably) the most famous boxing match in the history of the sport.

This is what Silva is missing honestly - a rivalry with a tough competitor!

SIlva will no doubt go down as one of the best MMA fighters of all time - at the time he retires he migh be considered the best tbh - and it will take some serious performances from the current MMA fighters to surpass Anderson Silva.

However i still consider Ali much bigger.

though who knows, andersons career isnt over, maybe sonnen could be that guy...or even better...JBJ

Well if anyone is to surpass Silva in the foreseable future it should be GSP. Back when Silva was as old as GSP is now, he had just been submitted by flying heelhook/leglock/kneebar whatever it was. So GSP has time to build an ubelievable legacy

These days though, nobody can touch Silva

I think this was called the 'phantom punch'. Liston was known to be in with the mod and paid off, so I guess that makes Silvas even more impressive!

3 minute mark. Same technique, but looked accidentally on purpose there.

There both falshly inside there respected ring. However outside the ring ali was probably one of the most colorful characters ever. Ali with a mic in front of him was gold. Silva has yet to talk down to an opponent. Silva will go down as the goat.
