    Frequently Asked Question:

    NHB7, why don't you rather than put five people asking yes or no, put 10 people and just say vote for the on you think is a legend?

    Answer: Because of the way Sherdog polls work. Let me provide those interested with an example. Imagine I had a poll and all it asked was Do you think either of these fighters are legends? And I listed two people. One person was Gina Carano and the other person was Matt Mitrione. Now If I just listed there names and said, "Vote for them if you think they are legends and just don't vote if you don't think they are legends" here is what might happen. 100 people might enter the thread and of those 100 people 6 people vote because 6 people believe that both Carano and Mitrione are legends. But the poll doesn't count those people who came in and said, "No, they aren't legends, so I won't vote." So what ends up happening is the final conclusion of the poll is "Out of 6 votes, 6 people agree that Gina and Matt are legends. In other words, 100% of people believe Matt and Gina are legends." When in reality, only 6% of people believe that they are legends. So the only way to get to that number is to provide those people that believe they are not a legend to also have a vote. In other words, 6 people vote they are, and 94 people vote that they are not.

    Mario: Yes, one of the first fighters to put an end to the Gracie Mystique (albeit, he did that in BJJ as opposed to MMA, but still demonstrated that one can be lethal in BJJ an not be a Gracie in MMA).

    Mauricio: No, I think during his Pride run he was well on his way to proving he was going to be a legend, and then his UFC run kind of wrecked it.

    Megumi: Yes. Carano and Rousey lost on these polls big time. If Megumi can't win legendary status, then apparently no women can just yet.

    Bustamante: No

    Oleg: Yes...I admit, this may be the first one where I'm allowing bias to take over. I was just a big fan of Oleg in the early days and I just can't get myself to vote "No."

    I went yes on Miletich, so I feel like I've got to go yes on Bustamante. A hair behind him as a trainer and near legendary as a fighter as well. You can make a similar argument for Sperry, but his fight career just doesn't do enough for me. All that said, I may be doing Sperry a disservice as a trainer.
