I’m a casual UFC fan. I don’t watch all the UFC events, but I will catch an occasional one. Leading up to UFC 148, I couldn’t help but to tune in after hearing the trash talk between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. It was great, much like the fight that the two put on last night. Once again, Anderson Silva came away with the victory.
Anderson Silva is undefeated since entering the UFC and has defended his UFC middleweight title a record ten straight times. Silva has held his title since October 14th, 2006. He’s rolled through his opponents and without a question is the most dominant fighter in his own sport.
The question though, when it comes to dominance like that of Silva’s, is whether or not he’s the most dominant athlete in all of sports?
