    The hype on him was for his excitement/personality. No one was saying hed run through every WW and win the title.

    And for a long time before he got his due Jorge was one of the most UNDERRATED fighters in MMA history

    it absolutely floored me when i saw her overextending, chin up in the air, reaching for the taller holly holm who had boxing pedigree.
    that was a serious, serious error, and an amateur one quite frankly.

    Stop it. Even some guys in here thought he would beat Usman lmfao. His personality might be the most exciting factor about him but a lot of people thought he's a real contender at 170 which is just ridiculous.

    This is very easy to answer.

    Extremely easy.

    And for those in the know, it's someone who wins every fantasy fight by arm bar.

    You know, this is something I've often considered, but when you actually look at the raw timeline of events

    He did lose to Quinton in Pride, but Quinton immediately lost to Wanderlei. Bear in mind Wanderlei had lost to Belfort and Ortiz, both in comprehensive losses, both of whom Liddell dominated. Plus Chuck also beat Reem and Randy.

    When he knocked Couture out, I think he was the best LHW in the world, but it isn't definitive and actually there's a very strong argument Pride always had the best champions before the merger.

    Putting her faith in a charlatan like Edmund Tarvedyan didn't help her career and the fact that she had the success she did is credit to her pretty much dominating without the need for her embarrassing striking which any decent coach should have corrected and improved on,her loyalty obv cost her in the end.
