Is Anderson Silva the greatest of all time? Look at his career:

-- He is 32-4, and hasn't experienced a loss in the UFC. His last loss came via a disqualification for an illegal kick in 2006.

-- He holds the UFC record for most consecutive title defenses. With the win over Sonnen, he is up to 10.

-- 25 of his wins are by stoppage, with 19 knockouts and seven submissions.

-- With wins over Forrest Griffin and James Irvin, Silva was successful at light heavyweight as well as middleweight.
