    Coleman at 73 with a plastic hip and a walker would still reKk most of Sherdog. Especially the Berry.

    Machida would walk right through. Kickers gave chuck problems. Keith jardine looked like a K-1 fighter vs him.

    if Coleman and Randleman had been in a legit camp for most of their careers theyd have been something else

    I don't doubt that Machida would have handled him, especially at that particular stage. Both men had their peaks, and I believe their skill sets could make for a great showdown or a snooze fest.

    Both. Shogun was better than ever. Seemed fully healed, was able to go 5 rounds no problem against Machida, and his skills were at their best.

    Maybe, Kens muscles are good for looking at that's about it. Considering Royce that looks as old as the late Helio Gracie and was able to tko him, your argument isn't worrying me.

    Also own my own home btw which doesn't even have a basement.

    I don't think Bonnar was ever top 10, I think the highest was around 15-17.

    This is kind of silly, and I've never heard anything like it said before. MMA wasn't what we know it as today, but early rulesets were brutal and the days with no or minimal weight differentiation were are probably a lot more dangerous than what we watch today.
