    Look at this picture....
    campeões ufc.jpg

    There´s something unique about it and I´m sure you can feel it too... besides the feeling of awesomeness, there´s also the feeling that we´ll never get to see this high level of champs together in the same era again.

    Each and every single one of these guys has sth truly special about them:
    5 GOATs who need no introduction.
    Cain = one of the best HW to step in the UFC.
    Edgar = the only man that proved (all the way from the start of his ufc career) that you can be champion with your natural weight fighting bigger guys and dethrone a legend in the process.

    It takes a looong time to see these kind of champions to even be born. Let alone fight in the same era. And we had this privilege. Truly dominant fighters in every aspect of the game. Just look how many times have the MW and WW belts changed hands after GSP and Silva? Crazy.

    I think these guys didn´t/don´t get all the credits they deserve. And now maybe it´s too late for that.

    And no matter how many good fighters and champions come after this, IMO this picture represents the era of the best, most talented, amazing and dominant champs we´ll ever see together.

    What do you guys say?

    Not enough T & A in this picture

    but still, we will get talent on this level someday

    Imagine in 2 years

    Ngannou, Rumble, improved Rockhold, Khabib, Holloway, healthy Cruz

    Exception made for Dominick, things have happened to all of them respectively: AKA, Cialis and constant fucking up of everything, Thai Viagra, Dana White's greed and Reebok deal, undersized at LW and Aldo at FW and Conor McGregor.

    That awkward moment when the 135lb champion is bigger than the 145 and 155lb champions

    I think Cruz is one lower-body injury away from being done, and I think two years is a really long time for a fighter to go without getting dinged up.

    I disagree about Cain being one of the best HW's he hasn't been active enough and seems to be always hurt. He's good, but I just don't get that vibe about him.

    We all learned at UFC 205 that Santa Claus is, in fact, real.
