He'd be beating everyone and wearing Nike instead of trash ass venum/reebok
No MW OR LHW survives 5 rounds with him.
Smash everyone. Is normal.
Jack is his only tough fight IMO.
Fights with Izzy and Till would be boring staring contests I think Andy would edge altho Izzy might get a scorecard with leg kicks.
He wrecks most the rest. Whittaker might have a shot but his darts are still ripe for counters and he isn't good enough a grappling threat.
Marvin, Costa, Cannonier, Hall etc. get rekt. Hall was barely edging out grandpa Andy as is and he already beat Brunson altho disputed
Weidman is shot. MW is shit.
lots and lots of damage is what I foresee
He would still rule the mw division with an iron fist
Prime Silva is champ
Anderson was very good at finding ways to win regardles of style of play or opponent, so I wouldn't overlook him against anyone. He would be a favorite against most of them anyway.
I think the top guys today are generally better defensively than the guys Anderson fought. They have better head movement and understanding of striking.
Offensively Anderson is still superior to 99%. He'd have a lot of fun fights with all the strikers today.
Adesanya still outpoints him. I don't care if you think Anderson has more tools offensively. His tactics would not work in this matchup IMO. That's mainly because Anderson birthed him. That would be a super fun fight too.
He would crush them all while everybody says his opponents aren’t challenging enough.
Wouldn't be able to compete in today's division
it's all hypothetical but I think people need to realise how much MMA has evolved and how much better fightera have become both with the skill level and athletic abilities
I think with these types of questions, people often tend to be bias due to nostalgia.
Silva would probs do well anyway
Matrix them all
Ignoring the obvious usada problem he’d do well. Probably only losing to Adesanya in a boring decision.
Silva would’ve struggled more during prime middle weight when strike force guys cams in 2014-2018
Prime Anderson wouldn’t pass USADA.
Except perhaps Jon Jones
77% think he'd be champion.
GSP would destroy him
He'd be #2 at the very max. He beats Whittaker but loses to Izzy.
Separate names with a comma.
