    Frequently Asked Question:

    NHB7, why don't you rather than put five people asking yes or no, put 10 people and just say vote for the on you think is a legend?

    Answer: Because of the way Sherdog polls work. Let me provide those interested with an example. Imagine I had a poll and all it asked was Do you think either of these fighters are legends? And I listed two people. One person was Gina Carano and the other person was Matt Mitrione. Now If I just listed there names and said, "Vote for them if you think they are legends and just don't vote if you don't think they are legends" here is what might happen. 100 people might enter the thread and of those 100 people 6 people vote because 6 people believe that both Carano and Mitrione are legends. But the poll doesn't count those people who came in and said, "No, they aren't legends, so I won't vote." So what ends up happening is the final conclusion of the poll is "Out of 6 votes, 6 people agree that Gina and Matt are legends. In other words, 100% of people believe Matt and Gina are legends." When in reality, only 6% of people believe that they are legends. So the only way to get to that number is to provide those people that believe they are not a legend to also have a vote. In other words, 6 people vote they are, and 94 people vote that they are not.

    I don't see him as a legend in terms of being a fighter, but I guess he's a legend in MMA based on the fact he helped give us the UFC by being one of the founders.

    Founding father. BJJ legend, the start of PRIDE FC and the most famous MMA/BJJ documentary of all time. Definitely a legend.

    Armbar by hickson! Dude is a legend even if some of those wins were street fights! Sometimes legends are simply that, legends!

    After all these polls I agreed with most answered but I thought it was weird that Genki Sudo was called a legend when Funaki and Yoshida were not.
