    if you compare the list of athletes/mma fighters that fought both Fedor and Silva. I'll bet that the list of A.Silva is much more impressive.

    His win streak already surpassed Fedors and if you compare competition, I think Anderson Silva has fought a lot tougher of opponents. Only 4 more wins for Silva and he will have the exact same record as Fedor when he retired.

    you guys suggesting that he retires are seriously crazy and off your meds.
    But fedor is arguably smaller once you cut his gut off and shorter and fought 2 weight divisions higher. Anderson has been hiding out in the little mans division. Go up and beat Jon Jones and I will change my tune.

That's how dominant that fight was.
    Ahhh yes... nothing like utter hatred backed by a flawed conspiracy theory. Were you the guy that yelled out "Forest WTF"? Just curious??

    He has already stated that lhw belongs to his fellow blackhouse fighters Lyoto/Lil Nog meanwhile mw is open like 7/11.

    The permanent move doesn't make sense to him. Even if he did move up to lhw and dominate people would tell him to move up to HW and do the same. Anyways he is fighting past his prime so moving up right now wouldn't be smart.

    That's what I meant, my mistake. I keep forgetting who one that was

    no one is challenging his status or talent, but anderson is human and aging.
    Plus he is at the very least a Chuck Lidell like celebrity. I could imagine he is even more well known in Brazil then Chuck in his prime.

Without HRT, he probably has another 2-3 years before he is like Fedor. I would much rather see him desimate Sonnen and then retire after the biggest fight of his career, instead of beating Sonnen, and then go and loose to somebody like Munoz and fight lesser competition untill he retires. I eat him to go out on top as the greatest MMArtist in UFC history and a serious contender to GOAT.
