Demetrious Is the Real G.O.A.T.

UFC legend Anderson Silva says he’s NOT the greatest MMA fighter of all time — telling TMZ Sports that honor goes to Demetrious Johnson.

In his prime, Silva had 17 consecutive wins — with 10 consecutive title defenses — leading Dana White to call him the “Tom Brady of the UFC.” The dude was a machine. 

But, that was before Johnson went on his MMA run … ripping off 13 consecutive victories over guys like Ray Borg, Henry Cejudo and Joseph Benavidez.

DJ’s the reigning flyweight champ — and last year, broke Silva’s record for most consecutive UFC title defenses.

So, when we saw Silva out in Bev Hills earlier Wednesday — we asked where he stood on the topic … and he was quick to anoint Mighty Mouse as the best to ever do it.
