    Machida vs Thiago Silva

    Perhaps it isn't underrated to the people who remember but I think people forget about this performance...Lyoto completely destroyed Thiago, it was no match.....One of the biggest mismatches in history IMO.

    http://ufcstats.com/fight-details/41b9240c854b0956

    Thiago landed 2 punches....just 2 compared to Machida's 24 lol....Not to mention, that Machida was clearly ragdolling him until he KO'd him on the very last minute of the first round.


    It was fucking amazing.

    Diego Sanchez and Joe Stevenson <45>
    Both those clowns were the kid with mustard and shit all over there face when they were little, guaranteed.

    Just little scrubs. Never were a legit threat to any title. And if they would be, that tells you everything you need to know about the bs hype.

    Michael Chiesa lol

    BJ Penn <45> The most over hyped career of all time. Geeez lol

    Good fighter though. He’s kinda the Holly Holm of MMA. Props to B-Chay.

    I think people rate him incorrectly. He's one of the all time greats, I don't think anyone can argue with that. He was one who transcended between the old and the new era, and was dangerous to anyone that he fought at LHW or HW. He blended greco wrestling with boxing as well as anyone and basically laid out an archetype that others would try to follow.

    He was at the top of the heap for a while, but it was a very competitive era at HW and LHW when he fought. Think about all of the great fighters that were around at that time and many of them at their primes. Maurice Smith, Kevin Randleman, Pedro Rizzo, Chuck Liddell, Vitor Belfort, Tito Ortiz, Tim Sylvia, Andrei Arlovski, Alistair Overeem, Rampage Jackson, Wanderlei Silva, Shogun Rua, Brock Lesnar, Fedor, etc etc etc. He didn't fight all of those people, but he fought most of them. The rest of them were people that were in his weight class who he was being compared against during his career. Is he the greatest of all those guys? No, but I think you can make an argument that he was better than most of them looking at overall career, regardless of his less than impressive overall record.

    All the fights in MMA history, and you pick Aldo/Edgar 2? That fight wasn’t even close to a beatdown, let alone one of the biggest of all-time.

    To me, the definition of a beatdown is a sustained, one-sided beating where the loser appeared utterly helpless from bell to bell. Not these first-round TKOs after a knockdown and some follow-up GnP — or competitive five-round striking battles — as some have suggested.

    I’ve seen many proper examples listed, and here are the ones that come to mind for me:

    Tito/Ken 1
    Wand/Rampage 1
    Rampage/Chuck 1
    Wand/Fujita
    Franklin/Louiseau
    GSP/Fitch
    GSP/Penn 2
    Lesnar/Mir 2
    Cain/JDS 2 and 3
    Jones/Hamill
    Jones/Shogun
    Glover/Maldonado
    Barboza/Hooker
    Frankie/Yair

    Did you miss the rest of my examples? Not to mention the question was in regards to lesser celebrated beatdowns.

    Regardless though, Aldo/ Edgar 2 was absolutely a one sided beatdown. Frankie had no answer for Aldo's piviots and Boxing and was completely shut down in his attempts to make it a grappling match. He couldn't generate any offence and was thoroughly out classed.

    I don’t think so, but the Vitor-Fedor talks concerned me as a Fedor fan.

    He was severely overrated as a hw.

    But at his best, he was a great LHW. Surpassed by Shogun, Jones, and Cormier for sure. But could beat anyone else at 205 under the right conditions.

    Joe Lauzon versus Gabe Ruediger was laughably one sided.
    Most of Nurmagomedov's fights have been largely uncompetitive.
    Most of St. Pierre's title defenses. People shit on him for not being a finisher, but he handed out some extended beatings to some pretty damned good fighters.

    And he did it with a broken hand. Loiseau wasn’t the same after that beating

    Good call on Nog/Handy

    It won FOTN and ppl over the years pretend it was some competitive war and even put it among the GOAT HW fights when it doesn't belong anywhere near the convo

    Nog beat the piss out of him

    Dalby vs Till round 3. Props TIll, surviving that 5-minute onslaught was the most impressive thing you've ever done.

    Rich even had broken bones in his hand and foot. After round one where he broke his hand, gurgels comment was, don't worry it will go numb in a minute.

    Good shout. To think Maldonado went on to fight @ HW after this is kinda ridiculous. He has no business being in the ring with someone like Stipe Miocic
