unless my facts are off i think silva is on his way to going 8-0 in the ufc if he beats cote (pretty sure he will) which will tie him up with fitch and gracie
dana white has said that if he gets through cote he could return to lhw which is teeming with talent
here's hoping that he gets his 8th and 9th in a row (he deserves the accolade with the competition he's beaten)
Yes, you're right. I looked at this a while ago
myself, and Fight Matrix
has some interesting stats.
Not only is Silva sitting on a 7-fight win streak, tying him with Liddell, Couture, Miletich, and Franklin for 3rd place all-time
, he's also got 3 title defenses, which puts him 6th all-time
. And he's the only one on both those lists whose streaks are active (Thiago Alves has 6 consecutive wins, but of course has no title to defend).
