    I never actually thought about this before. Has Anderson ever dropped someone and not finished them? That's part of the reason he was never considered 'out' of a fight. One moment and it's over. It was very hard for anyone to be perfect for five rounds.

    Unless Anderson slips on a banana peel he should beat Bisping rather easily. Anderson could be 50 years old and still beat Spitsbing

    Anderson has vicious GNP, the GNP on Marquardt was nasty.

    I wonder what it'll look like without steroids.

    The only example I can think of is Okami being saved by the bell at the end of the first round.

    The 'steroids' he was busted for were basically cutting agents. In terms of performance, if he's making weight he will look exactly the same… And by exactly the same I mean he will look like a slower, weaker, forty year old fighter… He has never looked worse in the UFC than he did against Diaz, including both losses to Chris. It's called age.

    Franklin was saved by the bell in the rematch too.

    Right you are. Those situations seem to be the only exceptions though. He's patient in picking his shots and his precision is outstanding. (Some might say his precision... is very precise).

    Your technique isn't given or taken away by PED's tho. Its not like he stuck a needle in his ass & learned the intricacies of GNP

    Power and speed are, which is why he took PEDs. PEDs make a big difference, that's why so many athletes take them. Ask Mark McGuire and Barry Bonds, who mysteriously became 10x bigger, faster, stronger, better when they hit age 35.

    PEDs help you recover faster, meaning you can have better technique.

    PED's make a big difference for sure, but Anderson is still capable of putting on a matrix like performance here. This shit is ingrained in his DNA. He didn't forgot how to gnp/jab/throw kicks just bc he's clean

    True, but Anderson already has the technique. Its already ingrained in him. He can do it in his sleep. The guy that said he won't gnp like that bc he's clean now is simply uneducated on the subject.

    closer than you think
    You made me do the same and I'm dying laughing. All I can see is his serious face while he says it.
