    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.

    Anyone saying that Anderson Silva and Fedor are not legends are either A) hating, B) Only started watching MMA earlier this year C) Goofing off D) Are of the belief that no - one is worthy of the title legend in MMA yet.

    There's always that someone who just like to be the different one. How in hell aren't Silva and Fedor not legends?

    People are gonna say yes to Bas, but I disagree in that his career isn't storied enough. Guy only fought for 5 years, and most of it in an organization that was known for worked fights.

    Dude, you should leave the poll open for a longer period.

    I couldn't vote in some of them because I didn't know they had been created already. The most recent thread probably wasn't on the first page so I've missed it.


    Anyway, I think it was a great idea to do this. Good job!

    Honestly, I'm not sure what is going on with them. I put close after 30 days for all of them, and then I'll come on here like a day later and find that they are closed. Sorry that you didn't get to vote, I wanted to see like 400 - 500 votes on all of these!!
