Anderson is a proven juice monster though.
Let's do another GOAT poll and see if we can topple GSP from the number 1 spot.
Been awhile. We should do a new poll so gsp can win that one too.
I can only see GSP as winning again. Usman and Khabib steal votes from Fedor Silva and Jones.
"Can only be a hw champ."...wtf? Here's someone who fought against all weights before weight classes were a thing...Royce Gracie. He's done as much as any of these guys ever did and more than some of them... people tend to overlook champions from the past unfortunately. Another champion that could be possibly considered is Dan the beast Severn. ....
I love how every stat you claim is "in UFC history"? Newsflash, half of those stats weren't even tracked when the ufc originated 25+ years ago. That meaning any fighters back then stats weren't taken into account therefore none of these are legitimately "in ufc history" sorry to burst your bubble....
Mods, there is a typo in the poll !
It's Tim Sylvia not Tim Silva. And that shit must be broke because he is not 1st
Usman doesnt steal nothing from nobody in the p4p GOAT convo.
GSP would win a sherdog poll again of course, but not like sherbros are such a great sample lol
10-I guess Dan Henderson or Dominick Cruz idk.
Lolz at having mighty mouse above gsp and Fedor. And I'm a MM fan.
You prefer a sample of casuals?
He prefers anything that favors his favorite fighter. He argues on here all day, but nobody's opinion here matters
Sherdog heavies is a great sample.
Claro que sí, par de julianes
Its an mma community where many people have been watching a decade or more. I don't think its that bad. In terms of people having mma knowledge. Yes, a lot of people here have other issues.
it's called subjectivity bro
Listen, it's UNDENIABLE that there is a massive crown of GSP fanboys in these boards and particularly from Canada. Poepl who doesnt really know that much about this game, even if they spent the last decade posting on here, because their motivation is to hype up their idol rather than the sport itself.
This is an evidence, if you want to pretend that is none of that, that this is a truly unbiased, leveled sample, fool yourself if you wish
Oh it is? I've been on here since 2007. Back then way more people favored Anderson or Fedor in those discussions. Gsp was a notch down going head to head with Penn. Both in fights for legacy. Then came the Brock fans, Cain and jds fans. Jones fans. For awhile when he was undefeated Machida gained a large following. And many, many other fighters.
Its changed often through the years, and guys dropped down the ranks when they started losing while their peers were still winning. Or as the perception of divisions changed. For years on here I've argued with Anderson fans, but I never dismissed the entire site as being illogical Anderson fanboys. I'd at least listen to their arguments. Even if I found them flawed and always thought gsp was better.
But its really just objectively false to say gsp has always dominated here, or that its some cabal of Canadian gsp fanboys. Gsp gained fans and support as his accomplishments grew. And if tthere's one thing I've learned on here, it's that sherdog is pretty diverse with people from all over the world.
That goes without saying. But there's a reason the vast majority of fans don't think a guy fighting in a newer weight class that is still developing, is the best ever. Its like saying a wmma fighter is the best ever. And I'm a big MM fan so I'm not trying to downplay him. He's the best flyweight ever for sure.
And there is isn't a MASSIVE crown of Silva fanboys? Not a MASSIVE crown of Fedor fanboys? Stop playing the victim card just because you get called out on your bullshit constantly by GSP fans.
