Ok, I am pretty tired of the revisionism related to the Vitor vs Rumble fight. The standard attitude here in Sherdog these days is to treat Rumble as a borderline can, and to state that it was a foregone conclusion that he was going to lose that fight because he missed weight by so much. (ironically, some of the people who say that go on and say that Rumble would have won if not for the standups). Some facts: - Rumble fought at pretty much even odds against Vitor in Brazil. That's pretty much the same odds that Bisping (arguably the #1 contender in the weight class) is fighting Vitor also in Brazil. - Those odds barely changed AFTER the weight in debacle - Most of the people here in Sherdog were actually pissed off and calling Rumble a cheat because he would have the unfair advantage (15lb on Vitor). Only a small minority brought up the possibility of that being bad for him. For evidence of this point just look at this thread: http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f2/vitor-205-6-rumble-211-weight-1966793/showthread.php?t=1966793 Simple question: which other MW fighters (other than AS of course) would have fought at even odds with Belfort in Brazil? Certainly not Munoz or Boetsch.
