    Question A.Silva for the legacy

    I've said this once and again, Silva is the master of the art.
    Everyone in the devision dominated. 36yrs old.

    Should Anderson Silva move up and face LHW title to be considered the legacy?

    Well let's look at it by laying out possible matchups...

    Middleweight...
    Vitor Belfort - Who Anderson decisively finished in a single round
    Rich Franklin - ""
    Chael Sonnen
    Mark Munoz
    Hector Lombard - The Cancrusher
    Tim Boetsch - Anderson will easily outstrike this guy worse then he did to Forrest Griffin
    Chris Weidman
    Alan Belcher - Belcher is indeed extremely well-rounded and would be a great matchup for next year

    Light Heavyweight...
    Dan Henderson - Would still be interested in a rematch between him and Silva, as he laid out the blueprint for Chael Sonnen to follow
    Shogun - Obvious reasons. Legendary matchup.
    Rampage - Would be a new highlight reel for Silva
    Jon Jones
    Rashad Evans
    Gustaffsson


    I truly think that if Henderson wins the LHW title that Anderson Silva would move up to fight Hendo. That's a big IF though.

    Wow. A well thought out post to a sloppy, probably drunken thread. Props.

    i'm pretty sure A. silva has said multiple times that he has no interest in moving up to LHW and challenge for the title. i'm assuming he will fight another 2 or 3 fights an then retire.

    Yeah horible first post lol, but I'll bite.

    Without a move to LHW Silva would still have his Legacy. The guy is technically unbeaten since 2004....yeah 2004, 8 almost 9 years ago.

    A 15 fight win streak in the UFC is unheard of, not Matt Hughes/Liddell/GSP/Couture/Bj etc etc have done that. 4Ko, 3Fight, and 2 Sub "of the night" awards, 9 total. Isnt the record 10?

    Add in the other records the man has like Most title defenses and its easy to figure out were currently watching the GOAT in his prime.

    Its awsome to watch a fighter in their prime destroy the competition, it doesnt happen too often, especially on the level of Silva. Just sit back and enjoy.

    He has also said multiple times that he isn't the best fighter. He thinks BJ Penn is the best fighter on the planet so what does he have to prove?

    Both Fedor and Silva fought in divisions where they were most comfortable and both dominated their respective weight classes. Yet only one of the two has a fan requirement to compete outside his weightclass (yet again) to be considered the GOAT (as if there was a such thing anyways).

    Some of yall are funny, others are so transparent its sickening.
    Favortism much?

    Playing devil's advocate to your post, I will provide you some reasons why:

    MW has historically been pretty weak
    Anderson is (perceived to be) huge for the division and Fedor is "small" for his
    Fedor HAS fought outside of his weight class
    PRIDE HW was perceived to be stacked when he dominated it

    Also, from the "fans' perspective":

    Fedor never disrespected his opponents in the press or public
    Fedor never shoulder checked anyone
    Fedor has never danced in the ring/cage
    Fedor has never been DQ'ed for illegal strikes

    Now, I'm not sure I agree with all of that but they are facts.
