    "Legend", sure I guess, totally subjective and you can be an MMA legend regardless of your talent. In any real sport he would be "Hall of very good", but not a hall of famer.

    This alone qualifies him for that status :). But there's more, IMO.

    I think rashad aged badley latley.
    But the young cocky rashad Evans twisting his nipples and grabbing his own crouch. Dancing around like a monkey, crouching down, talking shit, shooting take downs and knocking people out. How is he not a legend.

    He was great in promos as well, had amazing buildups with rampage and Jon Jones.

    Yeah

    I always thought he was one of the weaker 205’ers of that golden era though

    he also spent half his life injured

    Jon Jones vs. Cormier or Jon Jones vs. Reyes I guess

    if you consider Jon undefeated

    but I agree

    Has some respectable wins to his name. Is a former champ but i wont consider him legendary. Koed Chuck after he had been finished by Rampage and his title riegn was meh as he lost his title in his first defense.
