    is he a top 30 fighter all time?

    30-9

    Has some good names on his resume

    Only turned down fights when he had the belt but usually was one of the most reliable guys in the roster

    I would be willing to forgive the victor loss because of chemicals

    Probably one of the few true clean fighters

    Did a lot for the sport by bringing in euro fans and helped UFC expand into England and Europe

    Easily the Goat broadcaster. Still working to make the ufc/mma better, always a great entertainer, fought his ass off drug free with little athleticism, pisses people off but is able to expertly walk the line, cared about/called out max when he was in bad shape and took a liking to my kid and sent him shout out saying see you in the octagon.

    As far as all time fighter rank? Ehhhh a biased top 20 me thinks. Number 1 MW for sure.

    He's good but not great. Tough, resilent, and usually not an easy fight for anyone but I don't consider his skills to be truly elite.

    Probably #4 or #5 all-time MW

    Respect the way he kept improving and honing his craft even though pure talent-wise he wasn't on the level of the top guys.. he did it with hard work and toughness

    Dude is legit but when you look at his career it seems like he lost to the top guys whenever he fought them

    Rockhold is an exception

    Great example of a person who put in the hard work to overcome his lack of talent in certain areas of his game. Tons of heart and never gave up his dream. Always keeps it real when it comes to trash talk as well. Sure it's antagonizing but it's also genuine.

    Bisping doesn’t belong anywhere near that group of fighters. But Vitor and Ronda should be in there.

    That deserves respect.

    he got one of the best resumes in history and the belt was the icing on his cake. he go into the hof and is great on tv. I hope espn doesn't mess up the fox crews when the switch happenes.

    I don't rate him very highly.
    He doesn't have many top wins.
