Default Re: When will people realize Wlad was not in his prime when he lost 3 times?

So, my question is, when will people stop bringing up losses that happened 9-14 years ago to a completely different fighter?
Wlad was in his prime for all at least 2 of his 3 losses. He was fully developed physically and had experience and a winning record over world class opposition. What you're descibing is peak, and I would agree he wasn't peak yet.
