Anderson Silva has had his share of ups and downs throughout his UFC career. However, at one point in time, Anderson Silva was regarded as the greatest fighter of all time. Brad Reifler recalls that he defended his middleweight championship more times than any other fighter in the world, and MMA fans still idolize him for the incredible feats that he accomplished during his UFC run. Unfortunately, Anderson Silva recently tested positive for steroids in his last MMA fight against Nick Diaz, and UFC fans have since labeled Silva as a cheater.
Anderson Silva is claiming that he did not knowingly take any performance enhancing drugs, but some people believe that Silva took some type of steroid in order to help heal his broken leg. Nonetheless, Anderson Silva is still suspended from the UFC, and his return to the octagon is still questionable. BJPenn.com recently published a video that features 10 of Anderson Silva’s greatest knockout victories.
The BJPenn.com video shows how dominant Silva truly was in his prime, and he’s had some notable victims over the course of his career. For example, Rich Franklin, Vitor Belfort, and Forrest Griffin have all been knocked out by Anderson Silva in the first round of their fights. Unfortunately, the end of Anderson Silva’s career may overshadow his legendary championship run.
