    Never.

    Prime Anderson Silva is the GOAT MMA striker and he KOd most of his MW record 10 title defenses in less than 2 rounds.

    Anderson also KOd his 3 LHW fights in less than 1 round.

    What’s the consensus?

    No. Lightning doesn't generally strike twice.

    The GOAT will live on in our memories though.

    You Ese!
    Since you already answered ("Never"), I'll just say yes. We will likely see someone LIKE a prime Silva.

    Second only to Demetrious Johnson 11 title defences and only 4 went to decision... and Jon Jones inside the cage is is a menace to fighters... outside the cage he is a menace to himself.

    Awe you're of the belief that only a handful of professional athletes use PEDs.

    Maybe if the general quality of the MW division drops significantly and USADA fucks off for some reason, then maybe yeah.

    Legacy, what legacy? I've been watching since roughly Ultimate Fighting 4 or 5. There was no testing for PEDs in the beginning and there are guys who have been busted, come back and were still highly respected and loved. USADA and this whole crying over eye pokes, oblique kicks, grabbing fences or shorts too much is all new school so the impact from it is yet to be determined. To say that an organization who has only been around for 4 years will affect the legacy of guys who have been around for 10 is a bit of a reach.
    Do you honestly believe that when Diaz (who is on the inside) said "everybody's doing something" and not "everybody, but me is doing something" he didn't know what he was talking about?
