Pele was THE MAN is his prime. Without him there would be no such thing as Anderson Silva, Shogun or Wanderlei.

Pay your respects

Pele is my favorite Chute Boxe fighter of all time...

Anderson is better with his hands than Pele was and a tad more crafty but there have been stories about Pele beating the piss out of Anderson in Muay Thai fights. Granted that was before Anderson was Anderson.

If it was under Vale Tudo rules, I'd go with Pele all the way. Very few could **** with Pele under Vale Tudo rules.

Yeah Pele was a beast. I always wondered why he never made it big though. His MT was sick and he is a BJJ Black belt but it seems like getting taken down was doom for him. He has quite a few submission losses.

Still, dude was sick

Anderson vs Pele?

I remember Pele saying in an interview that the two of them are 1 to 1 in Muay Thai. There was a huge controversy about it since Chute Boxe was saying that he regularly destroyed Anderson, yet Pele himself states that he's only managed to beat him once.

Pele destroyed everybody in Chute Box though. Wanderlei said that he was the meanest guy he ever trained with.

Thanks for this thread. Pele was the first mixed martial artist I ever knew and he introduced me to the sport back in 2002 or maybe earlier I don't remember exactly. It was that Sherdog highlight of his that I downloaded by accident. Unfortunately I lost interest in this sport and didn't hear about it again untill 2006. I really missed out on Pride and early UFC etc.
