Not that many needed convincing, but Anderson Silva is the best fighter in the world.
There was a little bit of doubt in the minds of some due to Silva’s performance against Chael Sonnen at UFC 117, but on Saturday at UFC 148, Silva removed all doubt.
Silva stopped Sonnen at 1:55 into the second round with a barrage of strikes that Sonnen couldn’t respond to, as he defended his UFC Middleweight Championship for the 10th time.
Sonnen won the first round, as he took Silva down quickly and held him down for five minutes, but Silva showed great takedown defense in the second and used his pinpoint accuracy with his striking to end the fight.

It seems UFC president Dana White gets asked the same questions after every Anderson Silva (Pictured) or Jon Jones victory – ‘You always claim to give fans the fights they want, will Jones face Silva now?’ or ‘Silva has already cleaned out the middleweight division, when will he challenge Jones for his light heavyweight title?’

Jim Ross is back with another blog, here are some highlights.
Rumors of Chael Sonnen to WWE: “I see Sonnen, the admitted pro wrestling fan, sticking with UFC. I believe that Chael is a star, an attraction and UFC isn’t overloaded with marketable star power at the moment. No company that hangs their hats on PPV revenue is over loaded with star power as these special athletes/performers...
