    Has any other fighter destroyed prime versions of 4 former world champions (one former world champion twice) in less than 2 rounds more impressively than Anderson Silva did?

    Thoughts?

    The Hendo win is amazing imo. I,know some people around here claim Hendo did his best @ 205 but that's bullshit. He was just as good at Middleweight

    Ok what about the others he mentioned. Or are you going to pretend you didn't see the whole list.

    Reading comprehension isn't your forte.

    Tried that with another fighter who on paper was a bad match up for him. Wonder how that turned out....

    Who was on TRT at the time *ahem*

    Forgot to include Chael TS, though he was a champ of a smaller promotion.

    Prime thing is a little iffy. I agree that Anderson beat those guys in their prime.

    GSP beat Penn x2, Hughes x2, Condit, Shields and Diaz. More Prime champs but not as savage
    Jones beat Machida, Rashad, Belfort, and Cormier x2. Same amount of prime champs but not as savage. (Machida win was Savage as f*** though)
    Fedor beat Minotauro x2, Crocop, Randleman, Arlovski and Sylvia. More prime champs and just as savage if not more.

    Fedor > Anderson

    Andy is tied with Jones as GOAT as far as I'm concerned. The current champ is the guy who wasnt good enough for a titleshot during his reign... he also didn't lose til his late 30s and he literally gave away the KO on a silver platter. Even the rematch was flukey, but people hate silva and will always discredit him. Dude still has the defenses, moved up in weight multiple times, and finished people in extremely decisive matter. Jones, GSP .etc are mostly decision kings.... Silva destroyed people

    I'm a big Weidman fan and jumped for joy after this but don't try and discredit Silva's wins. The TS is not talking about Silva vs Weidman, he's talking about Silva's impressive wins on his resume. Cut it out, kid.

    Fedor did as well.


    Fedor and Anderson are the two greatest MMA fighters of all time

    I think people have a short term memory or how good Anderson was.

    Henderson gassed in second round, same reason Jake Shields laid on him for 4 rounds landing pitter patter ground and pound. 185 weight cut was really bad for him at that time. First round Henderson was better than Anderson, that's where the myth that Silva was a slow starter came from.

    Vitor wasn't the TRT Vitor that destroyed Rockhold, Bisping and Henderson, even though he started TRT at that time. TRT Vitor abused the hell out of TRT and only fought in Brazil.

    Jones beat Machida and Belfort in their prime?

    Lol.

    Machida was an injury replacement with zero relevant wins in the previous 2 years, his only recent victory being over a 376yo decrepit Randy.

    Belfort hadn't even been in the cage with a LHW opponent for HALF A FUCKING DECADE when they fed him to the divisional GOAT. It was an utter joke of a 205 title shot, just like Chael was, just like Gus off a R1 KO loss was.
