    Those are better than Hughes? GSP knocked Hughes out twice in one fight. Hughes was top 3 p4p and goat WW. Silva's wins over Hendo (coming off a loss and 2-2 in his last 4 fights) and NON TRT Vitor pales in comparison to that. GSP beat WW Shields who embarassed Hendo (Silva's best win). Thats what you need to know when comparing their strenght of opposition. Every single mma media in the world said WW had the stronger competition. Somehow Silva's retarded fanbois are trying to revisit history by twisting facts over the years and believing their own bullshit.

    I have GSP as the overall Goat but your Silva Assessment is way off and you are undervaluing his wins.

    Hendo was the uncrowned champ in most ppls minds going into that fight.

    cherry picking a small snippet of his career does not paint an accurate picture of who he is.

    he was 22-6 going into that fight being the Pride WW (185) GP champ and MW (205)champ and his recent loss was for the UFC LHW title.

    He went on to beat, Franklin, Palhares and Bisping staight after that fight all top 10 mw fighters of the time.


    The version of Belfort Silva beat was absolutely the TRTor version.

    Yes I have GSP as number 1 but Silva’s reign was as legit as anyone to date.

    Fact : Hendo was 2-2 coming into the Silva fight, and he did lose to Misaki. Yes he beat Wand soon after the axe murder got murdered by CC. Wand was washed up by then. HE shouldnt have taken fights against HW Hunt and CC. It killed his prime. Hendo still lost to Misaki. FACT.

    Fact : Vitor was OFF TRT for his fight against Silva. That's a FACT. So no, that was absolutely NOT the TRT version. Not only did he claim he wasnt on TRT for that fight (horse' mouth) but you can clearly see from his physique that he wasn't.

    Cherry picking “facts” are not contextual facts.

    2-2 in his last 4 is true i didn't dispute that but he was also 22-6.

    i present facts in their entirety you cherry pick with the intention of presenting an unobjective point of view.

    that’s called being bias and disingenuous.

    Belfort stopped taking TRR in 2014

    he and Silva fought in 2011.

    so no your “facts” on that one are false.

    Look it up, Vitor clearly said he wasnt on TRT against Silva. Probly afraid he would get caught for his UFC comeback. Hendo was known as Decision Dan when he fought Silva. FACT.

    Are You are honestly Trying to sight a fighters “word” as proof that they were not on the gear?

    man if that was the case 99% of drug cheats would be innocent... bc they said so.

    come on bro, you can’t base your argument on Belfort “word”.

    that’s crazy brother.

    i appreciate the info this thread provides but Vitor was busted for roids in 2006 against Henderson funny enough.

    He may not have been on any “sanctioned“ (as told in that thread)for that fight but we have to be a bit naive to think he was clean.

    belfort is a career drug user and it’s no coincidence his career took a dive after 2014 when he stopped using.

    That’s when his physic really changed.
    His body vs Henderson 2013 vs Weidman 2015.

    if your defintion if TRTor is strictly linked to trt replacement therapy it’s abit misplaced bc there is no real measurable differenc between doing it legally or not In terms of outcome.

    he is getting assistance either way.

    Actually if you compare his TRT physique to his physique against Silva it was clear he wasn't on TRT.

    Yea I don’t know bro you might not be remembering it correct

    here is photos of his body 2009, 2012, 2017

    bare in mind they fought in 2011.

    his 2017 body is the one that is clearly off the juice and yes his 2013 body is the most jacked but his 2009 body is far better then his 2017 body.

    hard to get a good photo of his weigh in for ufc 126

    Who else did you want him go after? He was the damn champion. Besides, if you look at John Danaher's podcast with Joe Rogan he said they'd been planning his comeback for 2 years whilst Luke Rockhold was the champion

    It depends if you care about PEDs.

    The Spider forever. Yes, I know objectively that he declined and had PED issues late in his career, but no other fighter ever amazed me the way he did in his prime. Fedor was close, but no other fighter ever looked as dangerous and exciting as Anderson did.
