  • Fedor Emelianenko is the greatest pound for pound fighter in MMA history

     Comparing their results against Henderson removes all doubt as to which fighter is better.In 2008, Silva submitted a 37-year old Dan Henderson by rear naked choke in the second round - quite a feat considering that Henderson was a two-time Olympian in Greco-Roman wrestling.
