Anderson Silva

Want to know how much of a fanboy dork I am? I just finished watching UFC 90, the one with the disappointing match between Anderson Silva and Patrick Cote, and had to dig up this marvelous Youtube clip of Silva’s highlights:

For those not in the know, Silva is considered by many to be the best fighter in the world, an entire generation beyond anyone else in his weight class. If mixed martial arts were viewed with more respect by mainstream media, Silva would be mentioned in the same breath as Tiger Woods, Wayne Gretzky and Michael Jordan as transcendant athletic geniuses.

But of course, the further fanboy in me can’t help but ask… who’d win in a fight between Silva and Fedor Emelianenko?

Okay, back to work…
