    Anderson the greatest of all time? By beating Franklin, Hendo and Nate Marquardt? We'll see, not even close at this point. Needs to finish guys like Leites, Maia and Cote*. Also a few bad losses earlier in his career don't help.

    Or more correctly Fedor. Randy Couture is up there in my opinion though, especially considering he broke into the sport at the age of 35.

    keith hackney(the giant killer) he was exciting to watch. especially the fight where he broke his hand punching the back of the big sumo guys neck. Then after the fight says those shots woulda killed a normal person.

    Don Frye because IMO the least technical fighter of all time but was a Man who could give a beating and take a beating.

    The Spider is a maybe but to early to tell and forget Brock. I do like Lyoto Machida and Chael Sonnen and they have alot of potential to be greats.
    one of the worsts lists ive seen.




    Fedor takes it easy. I am not much of a gracie fan. A lot of guys they fought, the sport was so new these guys look like they drank the night before. Still amazing what they did.

    Technically, it was the first tooth to be kicked into a ufc audience.

    Also the first tooth embedded in another fighter's foot, which had to remain to keep it from bleeding and led to a subsequent infection for the ear-biting Gerard Gordeau.

    The more you know.

    Fedor...hands down. Prove me wrong.

    Silva has a looong ways to go. Not a ton of top-level wins, and some bad losses.

    I'd love to see Lesnar fight someone in their prime. Fedor would rape him.

    Now I love Sakuraba...but comon! He beat up a few Gracies, and he's a god? IMO: the Silva fights derailed his career.

    I'm going to enjoy watching GSP smother Kos. The only thing GSP needs to work on against Koscheck is his HTD (Hollywood Theatrics Defense).

    GSP should spend some of his training camp in Beverly Hills so he can hit up some local improv classes, maybe check out the Laugh Factory so he can polish that HTD, Kosheck's HT is solid, seriously. Rumor has it Koscheck once got a cop to believe a paraplegic kicked him, nay, an illegal kick.... serious HT.

    GSP is definitely my favorite... but going as far as to say who is the best is almost like saying who is the best guitarist of all time. :\

This seriously bumps up Wandy and Hendo . Never the biggest guys but NEVER backed down to anyone , sometimes to their own shagrin . And they kept it classy as champs , gave 100% everytime , Wandy gave us the greatest staredowns of all time , basically there was just never any bullsh!t surrounding these guys or their performances . This same arguement does not help people like Andy "I like to dance" Silva .
    Bottom line , Fedor makes the best all around case for the greatest ever . A case which is unfortunately getting weaker the more he and his douchebag management decide to continue fighting outside the UFC . - Only my humble opinion , I'd like to avoid the sh!tstorm that comes with taking ANYthing away from Fedor based on his more recent opponents .

    You are a funny guy ! Vitor will knok AS's head off and then Andy can dedicate himself fulltime to dethroning the little 14 year old asian girl who rules the Dance Dance Revolution roost at my local arcade .

    I wouldnt call him a god, but certainly a legand and one of the best submission wrestlers ever. Beating the Gracies at their own game is very impressive. Up to that point, nobody had neutralized Gracie Jiu-Jitsu as well, let alone 4 times.

    He also is a natural middle-welterweight who (allegedly) was pressured by Pride mgmt. to take fights at 205 -sometimes with disastrous results- to get higher profile matches.

    And what he did during the Pride Grand Prix 2000 was amazing; he fights Royce for an hour-and-a-half, wins, then fights Igor Vovchanchyn for 15 minutes at a 50lb weight disadvantage. Thats a warrior.

    Show me any piece of logic that says it's not Fedor. He's only lost one fight on an illegal elbow, early in his career. He's run through all kinds of champions and legends.. Goodrich, Coleman, Nogueira, Herring, Kro Cop, Arlovski, Sylvia, Fujita, etc. I just hope he gets in one or two more big time fights before he gets too old so people stop doubting it. He's gotta fight Lesnar... that fight is as likely to happen as Merriweather / Pacquioa

    Also I'm surprised nobody mentioned Wanderlei Silva. Back in his pride days I think he was the best pound for pound fighter of all time. I would love to see Wanderlei in his prime verse Anderson Silva now... that would be an interesting match up.

    Pound for pound might be (as much as I hate him) Anderson Silva right now.. the guy's a prick but he's got so much talent its ridiculous. Too bad he's wasting it by fighting not to lose and showboating
