Never disliked, but the whole GOAT talk was cringeworthy for a guy who had horrible TDD.

You can't be the GOAT if you have a massive hole in your game. Which is why I picked the chris and wasn't shocked that the chris beat Anderson twice, but how he beat him.

edit: i want to add that i think the chris is a little delusional saying he was the better fighter, the chris had some advantages over Anderson, but i really believe in a 5 round fight w/o the freak endings, Anderson would show he has the better stand up.

But you can go ahead and cling to whatever you can to make yourself feel better.....
So what you're saying is, you have no proof that the fight was never pursued thus Anderson couldn't turn it down. Thank you. That's all that needs to be said.

Saying a fighter "almost won" or had a "near win" is akin to saying someone "almost" or "nearly defused a bomb"

tel me everything.
he cried after his losses in pride, he tried to kill one of the best coaches in MMA cause he is too emotional, he show boats, he runs away from fighters that dont play into his hand, he kissed chris weidman, annoying fan base.

Always supporting: Genki, Saku, Fedor, Machida, Aldo, khabib, Weidman, Bigg Rigg.

He's never been a favourite of mine but I'd tune in for most of his fights and have always respected his craft and what he's done for MMA.

Us brazilians are emotional people... Not defending it. It's just how it is.
He didn't really try to kill Cordeiro. He thought about it, went near the gym taking a gun, but gave up. Not the same thing. Make no mistake, neither Cordeiro nor Anderson or any other Chute Boxe fighter/coach was a really nice person back in the day...

Fuck Jorgensen's corner and that ref

Both legends.
Whenever Pride Shogun fought someone with better striking(Dibate, Overeem x2, Lil Nog) he took them down and beat them up, same would happen to Anderson with both at their best.
