Is there actually anyone left for Anderson Silva?No one can even touch Anderson Silva. There is no competition in the UFC at the 185 pound division and after UFC 82: Pride of a Champion where he dismantled Dan Henderson he stands alone as the best pound for pound fighter in the world. The UFC will have to bring in more fighters to even give Silva a test. He is so good he is bored in the fights and plays with his opponents.
