Anderson Silva is the current UFC Middlweight Champion and is widely considered one of the top pound for pound fighters in the world.

Silva cut his teeth bouncing around Brazil and Japan while earning the reputation as a deadly striker. Since entering the UFC in 2006 Silva has become one of MMA biggest stars. He was impressive right the start, demolishing Leben, Franklin, Lutter, Marquardt, Franklin again, and Dan Henderson (all respected opponents,)

Anderson Silva's striking is unmatched. He has very long limbs and his style is somewhat unorthodox. His balance, timing and accuracy are flawless, which seemingly allows him to throw dangerous strikes at all times. Most experts think the way to beat Silva is to dominate him on the ground, but Lutter and Marquardt were beaten quickly while attempting this strategy.
