    It’s easy and funny to bash on good ol’ Uncle Chael but he is one the most underrated fighters of all time.

    He should have been WEC MW Champion when he beat MW champ Paulo Filho (even though he missed weight).

    He has wins over prime Mardqaurdt, prime Okami, prime Ping, Shogun, Wand, and Rampage.

    Prime Sonnen would have been UFC MW champ if Anderson didn’t exist. Now he’s about to fight the other GOAT Fedor.

    He was a better fighter than most gave him credit for, but he folded like an accordion whenever he got hurt.

    Nah he's rated about right. Remember he's also a steroid cheat. And that mares past accomplishments.

    Ever? Nah. But he is really underrated. Dude was one of the best aggressive wrestlers ever.

    Give him great sub defense and he’s probably one of the GOATS

    He owes way more credit to steroids, and way more punishment for using steroids than he received.
    He was one of the most prodigious cheats in MMA history
    PS. hes also a convicted felon, so theres that

    The Okami fight defined him for me. He had a great run. Sadly will be defined by choking in the first Silva fight.

    Fedor may detach his head.
