    Please stop counting a victory over one fighter as the same as a victory over him 5 years later.

    Fighters skill sets, aging, athleticism etc change constantly.

    Beating Khabib in 2023 will not mean that Khabib sucked in 2017. Outboxing GSP in 2007 doesn't mean you can outbox him in 2011.

    Please sherdog, be better than this. Use nuance and context when comparing things.

    BJ Penn doesn't have the evolved skillset needed to win 2019 Street fights.

    Evolution isn't linear or predictable in any sense, however time beats everyone in the end.

    On behalf of Sherdog, I'm sorry but no...

    Divorcing career arcs and context from fights would make shitposting and trolling a lot more difficult, and we can't have that.

    None of the best wins on Khabib's record could hold a candle to the new breed of LW that will take over in 2025

    Sorry guys but the Fedor who lost to Werdum/Silva/Hendo was the same guy you idiots were calling the unbeatable GOAT.

    Some fighters do. Some fighters don't/
    Bibiano Fernandes really hasn't changed much compared to the Bibiano that fought KID and Faber.
    While the Holloway that fought Mcgregor is a completely different fighter now.
