Brian Stann knows a thing or two about fighting. After leaving behind a career as a top-flight middleweight in the UFC, “The Greatest Living American” (as his broadcast partner Jon Anik refers to him) has gone on to become one of the most well-respected analysts and commentators in MMA. And being an analyst and long-time fan of the sport, Stann recently weighed in on the hot-button question arising out of UFC on FOX 24: is Demetrious Johnson the greatest fighter ever?

“I definitely thought he was the best pound-for-pound currently and as I watched him prepare for this fight, the question really started to arise to me over whether he’s the best ever,” Stann told the Anik and Florian podcast recently. “And in terms of technique and capabilities, I think there’s no question. The thing that people tend to question [with regard to Johnson] is the strength of schedule. Anderson Silva, brilliant striker who’s got some submission capabilities, he has nowhere near the wrestling credentials or ground and pound that Demetrious Johnson has.”

Hes definitely one of the best to ever doit unfortunately his weight class doesn't offer the flashy names other guys have on their resumes.

Dj isnt the best ever......but hes the best flyweight ever.If he moves up and collects more names maybe but imo hes not.

I agree. Unlike Anderson silva. Dj hasnt moved up a weight class and fought. Silva best Irvin Bonner and ex champ Griffin.

Untill dj moves up and takes some fights. I cant say he is the best ever. Even when he breaks the record.
But he has been the most dominant champ by far. But he needs to step up a weight class and test himself

Rj is my favorite fighter since 125 division started and now he is best p4p fighter. People say division is weak but it's best fighters in the world that would destroy any average joe person. Regardless of size. Come from a flyweight mma fighter myself
