Lol. SO 21% is a third?
Good way to try to justify it when Silva never fought guys like Sonnen or Weidman. There is nothing to suggest those fights would have gone differently if they happened earlier in his career. GSP definitely lost a stepped after his surgery, but was still dominant as he had zero weaknesses. Silva did. Barao apparently does too. That does not detract from how incredibly amazing they both were/are.
Other polls were as low as 12% for Weidman.
I'm a huge Anderson fan and I was embarrassed by those kind off posts (mainly regarding the first lose). Don't let the loud minority affect your view on the rest of the fan base. It happens with every fighter.
Yes, none of them were elite LHW fighters and all played to his strength. You think Barao can't beat a 10-20 FW?
The same way everyone leaves out MacDonald, Pickett, and Wineland saying he didn't fight anyone other than "washed up Faber"
Once again, this thread is not about Anderson losing, I am sorry you failing to comprehend that. It is about (once again, as posted by more than 2 posters) 75% of this forum getting that fight wrong. When they all believed he was the greatest of all time and the P4P king, but then pretening like it never happened and attacking Dana and trashing Barao for being over rated.
I'm not sure why you're so bitter, or why you keep calling me fat. Please either stick to the topic, or leave the thread.
I guess you missed the Sarcasm.
Depends on whether you qualify unbeaten as avenging your only 2 losses in brutal fashion. GSP probably comes the closest to unbeaten.
Seriously this is Sherdog. Sarcasm detectors don't work here because the stuff you know is sarcasm turns out to be actually meant.
^ lol true.
And when you make a thread saying "See everyone is wrong from time to time, and even the best lose"
You get called a fat Silva hater, who is stupid for not having the correct % of people who voted for Silva in your thread title.. I dont run into many girls that fight at strawweight, and eat twinkies but there seem to be a lot of angry people on here today.
All I was trying to say is "Look, everyone is wrong once in a while, funny how that happens isn't it?"
Silva fought Weidman after he fought Sonnen and Weidman is practically better at every aspect of the fight game than Sonnen is and he's also younger, so it's safe to say that people acting like Silva wasn't capable of losing to Weidman were overrating him.
And if memory serves me correctly Lutter beat Silva for about 8 mins of their fight before losing by sub, and this was prior to Sonnen...this was the fight that people used to first discredit Silva and showcase a weakness in his game.
GSP wasn't dominant against Hendricks.
I remember once of the big knocks against Weidman was his lack of fights. He looked great against Munoz, but had a rough fight (for good reason with taking the fight like a week before or whatever) and only having what...8 or 9 pro fights? A lot of people seemed to think it was too much too soon.
Check my posts my friends, I agree with you. I still think Barao is one of the p4p best. TJ just had his number.
The worst version of GSP we see beat the current champ. I call that being a dominant fighter. I could say more about my suspicions about Hendricks but not the point of this thread.
Silva had a weakness. He had this weakness his whole career. HE never fought anyone who could explot it. Nothing says Weidman would have lost 5 years earlier. We can never know, but there is no fight that we can look to and show it.
I think Weidman beats the best Silva, even though Silva is better overall. Weidman just has his number, styles make fights.
Yeah, that wasn't really directed at you, just the trend of the thread. I think P4P rankings are dumb. "If 135 Barao was the same size as 185 Anderson and the winner fought Cain at 240, but they were all magically the same size and fighting the same opponents which they never would who would win?"
No matter how saturday night turned out Barao is clearly one of the best in the world. Dude got cracked early and never recovered...thats life, shit happens when you step into a cage and fight another world class athlete.
TJ had the perfect game plan, keep moving, keep him guessing, and land a huge bomb when you get the chance.
And youre not going to even understand that I'm shitting on your reading comprehension.
Weidman didn't really beat silva convincingly. Silva managed to lose beat himself both times.
Sherdog is overrun with weidman fans who support their own. Natural enough i guess.
