Anderson Silva is not the greatest, says Sonnen

Georges St. Pierre and not Anderson Silva, is the greatest fighter ever to step inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship of the UFC Octagon, according to former two division contender Chael Sonnen.

The American Gangster is known for his over the top trash talking and he has made quite a name for himself doing that and it seems that he has carried that habit well into retirement and his new career as an analyst. The Oregon native made an appearance at ESPN MMA in his role as an analyst where he discussed in detail, the careers of two of the greatest fighters in the history of Mixed Martial Arts – the former UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and the former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

The Spider was recently hauled for failing a pre-fight dope test with his B-sample also testing positive for the use of performance enhancing drugs putting his legacy as the greatest fighter in UFC history into question. Read more »

Anderson Silva wants to box Roy Jones Jr.

Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva is a legend when it comes to Mixed Martial Arts and the promotion but he has put his future in the sport in doubt once again as he reiterated his desire to get inside the boxing ring, as he lobbies for a fight against Roy Jones Jr. and this is not the first time that The Spider has threatened to quit the Octagon for a career in the ring.

In 2009, he came very close to leaving the UFC for a clash against the former World Boxing Association or the WBA Heavyweight Championship title holder. However, during that time, the fight failed to materialize and the UFC head honchos had thought that idea had been dead and buried in his mind. Anderson Silva soon signed a multi fight deal with the UFC and committed his future with the promotion. However, Silva still hasn’t given up hopes of landing the bout when he spoke to an American media outlet recently.

During that interview, the Brazilian also classed a potential match against the 44 year old boxer as a more interesting and intriguing prospect compared to a super fight against the UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, a fight that has been talked up by both Dana White, the president of the UFC and the camp of The Spider.

Silva has a record of 16 unbeaten fights in his resume in the last few years and still going very strongly and he believes once his MMA career is over, he could make the switch to the ring without much difficulty. He mentioned that everyone is focused on something and he added it is something that he would love to do. Anderson Silva mentioned when he leaves the UFC, he could box Roy Jones.
