Who do you think holds the title of the best Middleweight champion in UFC history?

If anyone can come up with a good reason why it isn't Anderson Silva, i'd like to hear it. Personally, I don't think anyone else is even close.

I'm not exactly sure how anyone could go against Silva as the clear winner of the most dominant Middleweight champion. Aside from Silva, Rich Franklin has the most consecutive title defenses, which are two. Silva has managed to rack up eight, most in dominant fashion, against higher level competition.

I think Rich is a very very distant second.

There is nothing hard or debatable about this one Anderson takes the cake easily.

yeah, I know you got these threads made for the other weight divisions, but you probably could have just skipped this one.

Rich Fanklin is the second best one, and Silva Took the title from him, and then defended it against him, making Franklin get plastic surgery twice to fix a nose which got broken twice.


It would be hilarious for one of the MANY Silva haters to come in here and try to argue for a pick other than Silva here. I need a good laugh

Obvious answer is Silva. The better question would be who is the second best Middleweight Champ?

I think this will entice more thought provoking discourse.

I like aquafresh or Colgate,

Silva is the greatest UFC champ of all time, I am not his biggest fan and disliked some of his antics, but I'm not blinded by my dislike, love or hate him he is easily No 1 MW champ and like I said No 1 UFC champ IMO.
