Brock Lesnar got Cancer after his win over Mir and lets face it Lesnar wasnt all that.

And if you didnt know Couture and Fedor was gonna fight if not DW went and ****blocked them
Just goes to show how competitive The UFC was, this was the next generation of fighters and Fedor sat out as long as he could until this new breed caught up to him.

AS maybe the most talent MMA fighter but his division is kinda weak compared to WW.

That's why Stoo is putting GSP ahead of him, because of the competition he fought.
"p4p discussion" oh ****ing sue me Ne5, it's criminal to place GSP above Anderson Silva... The man hasn't finished an opponent in five years. Fitch, Thiago Alves and the like don't hold a candle to men like Belfort and Dan Henderson. You put that together with jumping weight, fending it in the 1st round while making it look all too easy and it's just too much for some of you to process right now.

That's quite a list of names and were all in or around the top ten when fedor beat them

Silva needs to nut up and fight jones if he wants to be goat IMO. Wanderlei silva fought Mirko ****ing cro cop under pride rules
Tapping in the 10', mounted, pounded on by a guy named Bigfoot and lying face down ass up as the ref waves it off sure is befitting isn't it? Isn't it??

Did I mention glossing that over with 3 cans? Like I say continue to ignore the big picture, continue to give Fedor the Iron Mike Treatment.

That wasn't longevity it was a helluva fun, my men Anderson Silva and Hendo are dominating at an advanced age. Anderson Silva was ripening as Fedor was rotting, and there is just no way round that.

I don't understand, I just don't understand how you can be the most talented Mixed Martial Artist ever and not be The Greatest. I'm not asking someone to explain this to me, stoo and Ne5 just give this a rest. You can try to explain, but you've proven to have some serious hangups when it comes to ranking fighters.

We can't fault the man for having one rival, we can't hold it against him for making it look all too easy. We can't hold the carrot that is JJ in front of him because the two are on a collision course. Like I said, it's a damn shame when we start placing GSP above Anderson Silva. GSP fights scared, and for that reason alone is why he should be nowhere near #2.

I said my piece, and will do my best not to post anymore in this thread anymore. If I'm quoted I'll save it for later today, but I'm just disappointed in the way some of you view Anderson Silva's success.

He just has a takedown, and uses that to disengage imho. It shows when the fights hit the ground. I would have to disagree as Anderson Silva likes to keep the fight standing and uses later movement. I wouldn't say that his lateral movement means that he doesn't engage his opponents, he stands in front of them, analyzes, and begins to pick almost everyone within the opening seconds. Anderson Silva is just much better at executing and the results of his fights prove that (TKO, KO, sub).

GSP runs the clock, smothers his opponents, and played the 1-2 game with a one eyed Koscheck.

Last time out GSP had stitches across his whole face, how one can place him above Anderson Silva is beyond me.

Except for the bit where he passes guard with ease and elbows muddfukkaz...like the Condit and BJ fights...advanced his position and those elbows were fight winners in both cases...

1/2 game eh...so JDS did the same against Carwin after hurting him early...

Exhibit B, stoo. When have we ever seen The Great Anderson Silva look up at the clock in the middle of a fight that he was winning?

Like JDS v Carwin, GSP couldn't finish the fight. Either because of a mental block or he just couldn't. But, what I do know is that he fights scared.

It's about holding it against Anderson Silva for making it look so easy.

It's about running the clock, it's about the damage GSP receives in fights, it's about the highlight of your Title Defense being you eating a flying kick. Stoo, Anderson Silva is the #ing highlight reel, Anderson silva is the mother #ing man, and it's criminal to place GSP above him. Absolutely criminal.

Silva generally looks more like this in the later rounds of fights he is dominating.

That was years ago, weak... GSP getting knocked down on a flying kick was spectacular! Like I said, Anderson Silva is the highlight reel, last time out GSP walked out looking a bloody pulp.
