    Well, I created a thread about Maia being a legend in light of all the criticism that was aimed at his last fight, and I was surprised so many fans thought he wasn't, perhaps a group of new fans. But it got me thinking, who do you think are the legends of the sports?

    The terms legend is really thrown around way too easily

    No dick pill poppers or roiders deserve the term legend in my opinion

    I'm sure this isn't complete, but something like this

    OW: Royce, Sakuraba
    HW: Fedor, Crocop, Nog, Coleman
    LHW: Shogun, Randy, Chuck, Wandy
    MW: Machida, Henderson (benefit of a doubt for TRT)
    WW: GSP, Hughes
    LW: Gomi, BJ
    FW: Aldo, Conor

    Each generation has its legends...

    Some fighters get slowly forgotten... or slowly despised coz they stayed too long, then lose the legend status..

    Ken for instance...

    I'm throwing Tito on the list of names everyone else has already said.

    Tito brought an energy/douchieness to his fights that sold to high schoolers like myself. I watched before Tito then quit and Tito brought me back. God bless the gravedigger
