    I like that DC started at 30. He was mature and knew he had a time limit which pushed him the thrive for greatness and made him a even better "go getter". I'm thankful I was able to watch DC compete. The man is a role model. He's everything you look for in a competitor.

    I thought everyone was on the gear? Just like anything in life it’s all about who you know. I’ve heard of people with Olympic connections that don’t get caught. There is such a thing as a state funded PED. So at the end of the day everyone is looking for that edge.

    I liked him until he started talking all the time, then he just comes off as annoying to me.

    DC said he doesn't even see the point of fighting Jones again because even if he wins, he still lost the rivalry because he would be down 1-2. He clearly legit see's Jones as having beat him twice. Hell he even said he can't be GOAT because he never beat Jones. Fuck off with that too humble to say otherwise bullshit. DC will go at Jones for anything. We have seen it countless times. Dick not working jokes, calling him a junkie etc... But you think he is too humble to say Jones doesn't have a legit win over him?

    You know what is really unfortunate. DC has almost no real fans. The guy is a legit great, but his "fans" never even talk about him unless its to take a jab at Jones. DC deserves better. He deserves actual fans and not Jones haters pretending to be DC fans

    Its sad that DCs fake fans can't even talk about DC without taking a shot at Jones. DC has almost no real fans, and posts like this show it.

    And like it or not, fighters, the media and most fans do think of Jones as the better fighter

    Must be from the Silva fight and the Jones No contest. Doesnt make sense because A.Silva was a non title fight and the No contest he retained the belt but didnt defend.

    Anyways, since he lost the first fight to Jones he has only had eight fights.

    Anthony Johnson-won the vacated belt-1
    Alexander Gustafsson- defended-2
    A.Silva-non title fight- 3?
    Anthony Johnson-defended -4
    Jon Jones- No contest- 5
    Volkan - defended-6
    Stipe - HW belt- 7
    Lewis- defended -8

    LMAO at him getting belts for Silva and a No contest though.

    Belt and medal are not the same, you never say "defending Olympic champion" but for a fighter with a belt he is supposed to "defend" it. But that's just me being old fashioned and liking the fact that a fighter would wear a belt that the previous champions had before him and it will continue to be passed.

    DC can't stop talking about his belts now that jones is back. he is still upset.

    this isn't hate or anything, just what it looks like to me. it would actually be nice if DC could beat jones at HW so he can retire in peace.

    No, he was the tournament champion but never fought Reem for the actual title.

    DC is a deserving champ. He will definitely go down as one of the all time greats.

    ... but jones still beat him twice. convincingly.

    Symbolically it's same, it just trophy.
    When you cut off head of your oponnent, it's your trophy, not guy who will beat you later. It's primal things took into sport.
    Same with belts. Belt is your trophy, if you "killed" your oponnent, even if someone will beat you, it's not transfered.
    Whole "defending belt" narration is just thing to sell more tickets and ppv, it's nonsense for something like fighting between people.
    Fact that belts are promotional tools isn't some secret science.
    So DC rightfully showing his belts, because it's his trophies for defeating challanging oponnents and he should be proud because of this (as fighter).

    It’s not an angle. Jones was huge and this was the T-bol fight. His back/lats looked monstrous. I wasn’t shocked at all when he popped.

    I am post number 98. Can anybody count?

    1,2,3,4,5,6,7...

    Where did the number 8 come from, and why is everybody treating it as a fact?

    1 post shows that DC has no real fans? lol ok are you sure thats not a hurt bum talking? If we've learned anything from the DC vs Jones fights its that Jones was too afraid to fight the older smaller fighter without extra help.

    What have we learned since?? That DC is tested more then anyone, hasn't failed a test and moved up and fought the HW champ which jones was too afraid to do. But considering jones is too afraid to fight clean its no surprise he was too afraid to move up to HW

    Quite the opposite. I'm a huge DC fan.

    I mention Jones because that's the #1 argument against DC being the greatest of all time. You clearly do not have a University degree. Any time you state your case, you should always address counter-arguments. The biggest counter-argument to DC being the GOAT is, as I said, Jon Jones.
