    I think you are forgetting how good and effective Chael was during his Middleweight run in the UFC. He has become somewhat of a novelty fighter and a joke recently. But he was a relentless wrestler back then and would've put Adesanya on his ass and kept him there.

    that stretch where chael was on TRT and steroids, no doubt. he was a beast between 2009 - 2012. he was a good fighter before, but with PEDs, he was something else.

    are you slow?

    I just asked him how striker vs striker (anderson vs izzy) match up gave him any insight to a grappler vs striker match up

    Better wrestler? You have no idea what you're talking about.

    Exactly. If his wrestling was as good or better than Sonne's, he could've just repeated Chael's first 3 rounds against Anderson and won a non-controversial decision. And Brunson fought a much older, much worse version of Anderson after he had a really bad leg injury.

    And you do? What part of chael wrestling is better? Is it because he's a fighter from the past and you can't accept the fact that the new generation is simply better?

    Yeah, I seriously doubt he could pull off a triangle in the 5th round after being taken down the entire fight. That's what separates legends from gatekeepers.

    No, unlike your mere assertion, I explained it in the above post. Brunson couldn't even decisively beat an old version of Silva who was about 30% of the fighter than Chael faced.

    That only prove silva tdd has improved over the years, and he did if you watch the Brunson fight. "prime" silva was getting takedown down by fighters like Travis lutter, rich franklin, and leites

    So when you're over 40 and suffer a gruesome leg break your TDD improves? What medical school taught you that?

    That's my point. And Anderson is phenomenal at neutralizing attacks from the bottom. Israel doesn't have, or hasn't shown, that part of the game.

    The leg break was before the nick diaz fight you fucking idiot. And fighters tdd and skills can be improved when they're getting older, like silva. Only their reflexes, speed and power decrease
