who made their division look worse?
i would say silva, he toyed with half of them like they were nothing.
hell, you could argue that silva made LHW look even more worse then jones.
his wins over irvin, forest and bonnar are probably one of the more embarrassing lopsided fights ive ever seen.
Jones does have very dominant wins, but he didnt make guys look worse then what silva did to his opponents.

Fight guys ranked as low as you can find them and highlight them and guys like you two will say 'zomg look at how he embarrassed them'.
Lombard was highlighting all the top MW's outside the UFC for years. Some got fooled into thinking he was the 2nd best MW and elite right behind Anderson because 'zomg the highlight finishes'.
To go as long as Anderson did undefeated is extremely difficult weak division or not Anderson fought a group of very experienced guys and made them look silly. fuck the haters.
is it only 'hate' that makes one recognize that Hector Lombard was considered high level elite and the #2 MW for a long time because guys get fooled by dominance and high light finishes and ignore the strength of the competition?
I mean Hector also fought everyone available to him outside the UFC. He won something like 24 fights in a row often by highlight finish before coming to the UFC. I think Anderson was at 16 straight UFC wins when he lost to Weidman.
If you do not think putting an Elite like Anderson in a division where his opponents are mostly all levels below what you see in other divisions matters and it is only hate to point it out then I think you are very gullible.
