    Time stamped


    I agree with this Just Bleed legend. His reasoning is spot on. Great interview and a humble champion

    I dont think a guy with double digit losses can be GOAT.
    Anyways Silva destroyed his legacy by testing twice positive for PEDs and he will go down in history as one of the biggest cheaters if not the biggest in MMA alongside Jon Jones.

    Maybe the greatest at the time not of all time. No such thing for a sport that’s only a few decades old.

    Fedor has the widest excellent skillset ever in mma. Anderson doesn't have an offensive guard. I think that makes the difference.

    Gotta go with Jon Jones. But I agree with Robbie that when Anderson was prime, the things he did were unlike anything else.

    Gsp had a streak of 8/10 decisions in a row at the end.

    One of those was Penn quitting after round 4.

    Robbie is one of my favorite fighters and although I don’t agree with his opinion, that’s an interesting thing I didn’t know.

    Fedor, one reason is that he could NEVER be put in a bad position that he didn't have an answer for or couldn't get out of.

    Shame a guy that seemed to have unlimited talent & physical tools resorted to PEDs & cruising in fights.
