    MMA, a combat sport with the most diverse range of tools, Jones and Anderson are the only ones who were willing to utilize all of them to make themselves some of the most unpredictable fighters.

    In boxing unpredictability comes from throwing unorthodox combinations, so the opponent wont recognize a pattern and eventually counter. Unfortunately there are only so many combinations that you can do with your hands.

    In MMA, Anderson and Jones arent afraid to utilize every tool that is allowed in the sport: flying kicks, spinning shit. elbows from anywhere, knees, crawling in the cage. shoulder strikes, the scariest thing about them is you have no idea what theyre going to throw.



    alright. now im prepared for your comments about steroids

    both are idiots who wouldve been the GOATs but tarnished their careers by using PEDs. many can argue that theyre still the GOATs but who knows what they couldnt have done without the PEDs?

    ive always just assumed that everyone is on PEDs. so I dismiss it. plus half the dudes Anderson fought were busted for PEDs. so lets even the playing field out a little bit

    Except for all those people who took steroids and never had that kind of success.

    There's that.

    They had more tools because they juiced more.

    Let's say everyone juices.

    If you get caught once, that's bad luck.

    But if you get caught 3 times, then you are juicing more than everyone else.

    Yeah, if only Hendo would have taken more juice, he would have developed a well rounded striking arsenal

    I think that it is their speed&accuracy that made them lethal.

    Debunking Fedor fans before the thread picks up:
    1. Pride encouraged steroid use.
    2. Fedor is from Ukraine and fought out of Russia, the doping capital of the world.
    3. Therefore, Fedor used steroids.

    If you are truly correct? He was still operating in an even playing field. Unlike the UFC, that discourages PED's and punishes for them.

    This is why Fedor was never stripped, and Jones / Silva are out of the GOAT discussion and can no longer fight in official MMA bouts for however many years.

    Well done dipshit, you just made the best argument for Fedor being GOAT that anyone could have made.

    I'd say it's because they both beat the hell out of a bunch of really tough guys.

    Ironically, they both used the dick pill excuse. So there’s that.
