Simply put does watching DHK's performance vs Silva, having strong top control and an above average chin legitimize people like Condit and Maia who have put him away? Silva has 9 subs, he clearly has a ground game. Watching Condit sweep DHK the way he did before putting him away. It seems there is a lot of hate on DHK for his 'boring" fights but he seems legit to me. Do wins like Rick Story over Hendricks legitimize Story after watching Hendricks knock people out? Of course fighters improve but regardless.
