Anderson can’t wrestle at all though
They are not their best win though.... well most are but no Arona on Shoguns list?
Not TRTor on Silva’s?
Vítor is still better than Newton.
Had the chance twice and lost it twice. First by getting outwrestled by roided Sonnen, which is expectable, then being outboxed by Yushin Okami, which wasn't that much expected
Love both guys, arguably love Shogun even more.
That said, to throw the Overeem wins in there like Alistair at Light Heavyweight was some beast, is a little disingenuous. Chuck Liddell was also shot at that stage, tough to count that as highly as a prime Rich Franklin by brutal stoppage, TWICE.
Also, Chael Sonnen is better than Carlos Newton and Sakurai was tiny compared to Anderson. Marquardt was a solid win, and the Belfort KO was one of the best KO's of all-time.
Anderson at one point was 33-4 (1 loss being a DQ which is meh), really it was more like 33-3.
Anderson also didn't end up fighting Paul Craig and Gian Villante. Anderson's prime went WAY past Shogun's. Anderson has the better legacy and it is not close.
Lay off the dope.
Right. Liddell was only the favorite because of how shitty Shogun looked against Coleman and Griffen.
True but Shogun smashed Forrest into outer space during their rematch.
Just stop. Brandon Vera gave Shogun all he could handle.
We'll see how the win ages but I think Shogun's beating/W over Cory Anderson is bordering on a top 5. He made the guy mentally quit, become completely scared and turn into a panic wrestling, wall and staller.
Stop what? What does Vera have to do with Anderson/Shogun in terms of wrestling?
Because wrestling is irrelevant when comparing Anderson and Shogun.
No it isn’t.
It’s as if you have never seen Shogun fight before.
He still has a loss against Griffin though. Silva doesn't.
He was weaving his web and when he got a Opening he pulled a mortal Kombat finisher on him.
he was getting chased around? Lol that’s what spider wants in all his fights muppet
Anderson was more consistent with his winstreak obviously, but gotta go with Shogun here
Lol fucking delusional, neither were throwing anything, Vitor took him down, chased and flustered Anderson, then Anderson threw a front kick and it finished.
Still the only decent striker Anderson ever fought in his prime.
