Anderson ' The Spider ' Silva is the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. He reminds us of why we love this sport and of its great predecessors like Bruce Lee and Ali. He's a ninja like athlete with a winner's mentality that has carried his freak genetic gifts to their potential. It has been a pleasure to see him rise to the top and stay there firmly, giving us memorable highlight reel knockouts and slick submissions, as well as a plethora of swift strikes to head and body alike. There are many ways to describe Anderson Silva , as he has shown off many skills and attributes that we as fans pay attention to. He's first and foremost the best. Disagree all you want but he makes professional fighters look like random in shape guys off the street. He hit his prime in the UFC and has made all of his opponents pay for stepping in the cage with him. Anderson is so incredible he's made an entire division look weak by himself. The most impressive thing about almost all of his fights is he has an innate ability to make any type of fighter fall into his rhythm or fight his fight.
