    It's on Xbox Live, for those interested. Man that beating was severe. The fight got me curious. Several people have mentioned that Rua is/was a GOAT. With that said, has anyone else considered to be the "best ever" had their ass handed to them like that?

    Aside from fedor/silva. I don't want to talk about that fight :/

    Fedor Bigfoot wasn't even close to being bad.

    Fedor won round 1, lost round 2, and wanted to continue.



    Anderson Weidman is maybe up there. Chael Anderson definitely is.

    Cain JDS II absolutely was.

    Idk if it was really considered getting his ass handed to him but both times Chuck fought rampage he had a good amount of hype behind him and both those fights were one sided.

    But at a higher weight class.

    Same would happen to GSP if he moved up and took on Weidman, Silva, Sonnen, etc etc.

    Its the reason GSP is smart not to move up ... because fans just don't look at the size difference ... they just point out that you lost period.

    The weight had nothing to do with him taking repeated punches to the face

    Forgot about that fight. It could be argued that sonnen/silva was an epic ass beating as well.

    shogun fans won't like this, im a fan of shogun but not a blind insane fan. Jones beat him fair, shogun was coming of of an injury though

    On a somewhat related note. I never really paid attention to Jones post fight interview until today. But he was incredibly humble and sincere. Not sure what happened between then and now. He's a bit of a dick, currently.

    It was a brutal beatdown. Absolutely epic. Jones just beat him everywhere.

    What are you talking about?

    That was disgusting.

    He was molesting the belt and the way he smooched Joe Rogan?

    Weirdest post fight I've ever seen.
