Come at me Machida fans
Shogun clearly, Pride GP + UFC championship. He was also ranked #1 for a longer period of time even when he didn't have a belt
There you have it.
Shogun nuthuggers incoming.
I'm actually more of a Machida fan, but I think Shogun clearly has the better legacy.
Machida has not declined as much as Shogun though, so he still has some more time to wow.
I would say equal.
But as Shogun keeps losing and Machida keeps winning, it will be clearly Machida eventually.
Shogun has a losing UFC record of 6-8 and this greatly takes away from his legacy. And it wasn't because he was old and he still isn't old. He just was always overrated.
Close, but I gave the nod to Shogun. Not really much of a fan, and like Machida better, but for sheer legacy at the moment I would have to say Shogun. He is far out of his prime how ever. In a few years we could see Machida overtake him, as he is still fighting at the top of his weightclass.
4 Blown knees do that to yah.
Chris Weidman also has bad knees, it's not a valid excuse.
Machida is still going strong and that is also something to consider
Um yes it is, that's why it's illegal to attack the knees in the NFL or the NHL. Knee injuries ruin careers.
Yes, it is, an ACL tear is way worse than a meniscus tear.
But this isn't the nfl. Deterioration of the chin is not an excuse either.
4 blown knees is part of his legacy, whether you like it or not.
If he were successful despite those issues, you'd be citing this as an example of greatness. But since it has contributed to his downfall, you make excuses and disregard the negatives.
Your lack of objectivity is showing.
Still not an excuse.
