    PS: Hendo doesn't have top 5 wins in 3 divisions. He, Frankie, Pettis, and Vitor are the only ones who come close, but nobody else makes the cut. Spider Bless.

    Anderson is such a legend. You’d have to be a real nerd to not appreciate his highlight reel and accomplishments.

    Henderson beat Big Nog. Big Nog started his career 28-3 with his only losses to Fedor (x2) and Hendo. He was top 5.

    He also KTFO Fedor, who even on a two fight losing streak would still be ranked top 5, if rankings like we have today existed back then.

    In conclusion, Hendo is a bad ass

    Cool Stat TS!
    I bet Frankie Edgar comes close

    Edit- I think he qualifies:

    LW: multiple
    FW: Mendez
    BW: Munhoz (ranked #5 when they fought)

    Forrest just lost his belt in his previous fight. So he would have had a #1 next to his name in todays mma

    There are a couple others. None the less, very impressive.

    You could even say he has top 2 wins in three different weight classes.

    Sakurai was P4P #1 at the time, I believe.

    But have you seen the gif of Silva demolishing him? There is no way Forrest can be top 5 after you have watched that gif 100 times. /s

    Frankie did it much better.

    Lightweight champ despite being heavily undersized.

    Beat multiple top contenders in FW.

    And beat Munhoz in BW.

    He beat Nog in Nog's 7th pro fight. He was not ranked yet, let alone top 5. Fedor fell off the rankings and was not top 5 when he beat him either.

    No disrespect to Hendo at all. He actually has wins in 4 weightclasses, just not top 5 wins in 3 or more.
