    I can't believe Hunt is 11-10.

    Still a legend though.

    Legends fight top competition.

    That is how they become legends.

    Different standards,I guess.

    For me,fighters can't be a legend just because they fought for a long time(or fought in Pride) and have only a couple of good wins

    Even by those standards I can't see an argument being made for more than 3/4 guys tops.
