    The other two elite guys of his generation were Aldo and Benson, and they handled him twice pretty easily. Yeah, he beat past prime Bj Penn several times, and Gray Maynard, but that's all

    Bendo is the king of split decisions he didn’t deserve the nod in

    Frankie should have gotten the nod in the rematch against Bendo.


    Frankie became champion in a division where he was the smallest guy in the division. Who else can say that other than BJ Penn? In MMA, that is completely unheard of for a guy to fight arguably two weight classes above his natural weight class. Frankie can definitely fight at 135. Weight cutting has become such a big part of this sport, yet Frankie has been fighting the best fighters in weight classes where he’s one of if not the smallest guys in the division for his entire career and has reached the pinnacle doing so.

    Frankie IS one of the GOAT’s.


    Put respect on his name.

    Former LW champ with 3 title defenses, also top 5 across two of the deepest divisions for a decade, but overrated.

    Trolls don't even try anymore.

    Ok he got Ko by Ortega (not dominated at all) and all of the sudden he is overrated ? I will just tell you to get out and not wasting time trying to explain to your little brain how good this guy is.

    I haven't watched his fights against Bendo for a while, but remember that Bendo was never in any real danger

    Do you follow MMA?

    Possibly the worst thread on this site, what an idiotic thing to say.

    You can bet your house on such a thread being spawn after any legendary fighter losing one.
