    Hendo moving up to beat Vandy back in the day was pretty dope. And HE's the "OG champ champ" not Conor.o_O

    TJ is laughably overrated tbh, but still creds to cejudo, TJ is lucky the ref stopped it before he fully caved his skull in

    if the MM fight wasnt a split decision, not a robbery but could have gone either way, against a guy that finished him previously it would be the best back to back fights ever in my eyes

    He didn't beat either divisional goat, for fuck's sake. That DJ fight was not scored properly, and Cruz still has a better legacy than TJ at BW.

    If he beats TJ at 135 too then it'll be the greatest MMA accomplishment.

    perhaps cruz beating faber then dj, or tj then faber

    i guess gsp's win over penn, then hughes could make a strong argument
