Anderson Silva, one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, has been inducted into the UFC's Hall of Fame.
His induction was aired on the Pay-Per-View broadcast of UFC 286, cementing one of the greatest UFC legacies of all time in the history books. Silva reigned as the Middleweight champion from 2006 to 2013 and holds the record for the longest UFC title reign, win streak, and most consecutive title defenses.
Silvia's legacy is worth its weight in gold as one of the true pioneers of modern MMA and the UFC. His legendary reign consists of wins over Chael Sonnen, Victor Belford, Demian Maia, and more.
His anyone, anywhere, anytime attitude showed in his many outing at 205 lbs, even taking a fight against Danial Cormier on less than a week's notice at UFC 200.
Following his UFC departure in 2020, Silva chased a career in boxing where he's seen great success. He defeated the like of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. And Tito Ortiz. His last match took place against Jake Paul in 2022.
Silva's 16 wins in a row is a record that stands to this day. The next closest person is tonight's main event, Kamaru Usman, who put together 15 wins before being defeated by the other half of UFC 286, Leon Edwards.
Anderson Silva's Hall of Fame induction has been a long time coming, and he's finally gotten the honor he deserves. Who else should be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year alongside himself, Jose Aldo, and Jens Pulver?
