    RDA getting a lot of love itt for a guy who had 1 title defense (a rematch with Cerrone) in over 16 months as champ. Bendo getting too little despite 3 defenses and a longer reign.

    I know RDA has looked good at WW and Bendo fell off tremendously, but still.

    McFraud has no legacy. Time will bare this out.

    Actually... He may have a legacy. But, it’ll be as the biggest fraud, and WORST champion in UFC history.

    To even try to dispute this would be beyond retarded. Cue the Crotch Crickets. I think even those assholes will one day wake up and, say...

    Did I actually swing from that fuckin clown’s pubes, back in the day ? I had a touch of teh ghey. But, I’m much better now.

    Fuck that guy...

    Is Mcgregors accomplishments that shallow outside of young Holloway, aldo, Nate, and Alvarez.

    Bj’s legacy was basically just Matt Hughes, gomi, Kenny, and Diego

    Agreed. Most will start to disassociate themselves from ever even liking the guy.

    Its already started actually. Tons of people saying they don't like him anymore for never defending a belt. In a few years time they'd be too embarrassed to even admit ever liking him.

    BJ, Benson, Gil, Frankie, Eddie, Aoki, RDA, Gomi, & Pettis all have equal legacies as far as I'm concerned.
    There is no LW GOAT.
