Answering the questions of veteran Journalist Ariel Helwani as to who the real G.O.A.T of MMA is, Anderson Silva reiterated B.J Penn as the GOAT. Silva was on a live telephonic conversation with Ariel on his ESPN MMA show.


The Greatest of All Time (Credits:

Prior to fighting for the UFC, Penn became the first American Gold medalist of the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship. He is thought to have earned the fastest legitimate black belt of all active Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners.  In mixed martial arts, Penn has competed in the Featherweight, Lightweight, Welterweight, and Middleweight divisions. At his best, Penn was quite literally a pound-for-pound fighter, willing to challenge technique against size.  He has career wins against five former UFC champions: Matt Hughes, Sean Sherk, Matt Serra and Jens Pulver.

Silva, one of the best fighters of all time emphasizing that B.J Penn is the perfect candidate for the G.O.A.T title, definitely adds a lot of credibility to the claim that Penn is the GOAT.
