    Clean PED record.
    Clean criminal record.
    Taking a short notice title defense like every other champ.
    Not being a grade A douchebag.

    But mostly it’s the cheating thing.

    Richard McLaren concluded that it had no performance enhancing effects. I'm just quoting facts

    Shogun Had just fucking stomped the shit out of Machida to win belt but you u that doesn't count as his prime cuz he had prior injuries and was beat by Jones handily ... dude was in his fucking mode to late 20s. Page n Vitor were past primes Vitor more so than Page. And Gis was a WIN everyone likes to say he won but facts are he was the only person to ever be in a close fight with Bones that skews perception. Sonnen yeah not much ...... Love how Bader is considered this great fighter in Bellator ...... cant have it both ways but yeah I agree not much either.

    Say it however the only person with s win resume like Bones is Fedor. Reem n Hendo got a great resume but many losses.

    Bones is Goat as Fedor had BAD loses late.

    Richard McLaren is a lawyer not a scientist or a physician so his opinion means jack shit. His claim to fame was handling cases of perjury and fraud in relation to the Russian doping scandal coverups. He has never been qualified to speak on scientific matters.

    Shogun stomped Machida but he had no knees. You seriously are a fight finder nerd who clearly doesn't know shit about Shogun's career if you think he was in his prime.

    I also never said Bader was good in Bellator. He isn't a great name on a resume. Not even close.

    Hard to say. Both well rounded. Neither was really in much trouble against opponent.

    Too late for that. Cheaters aren’t goats.
