    Except the Cormier fight when Anderson got completely shut the fuck out off, why did Anderson only fight sub par and below fighters at LHW??

    Did Anderson know he would always get smeshed by top competition?

    I think Anderson always knew.

    Anderson was a MW. It is like asking, why isn't Khabib Nurmagomedov fighting WWs? Because he fights at LW. Really simple.

    Anderson Silva has a 16-0 winning streak in the UFC, with over 85% finishing rate. Anybody who questions his legacy is just a "flat Earther" type conspiracy bullshitist.

    In before the rioters screaming a xanaxed Griffin who was finished in his previous fight, was legit competition.
    Edit: nvm, too late

    He finished Bonnar with one knee.

    Bonnar hadn't been properly stopped ever (2 doctor stoppages before that in 13 years of fighting) and was renowned for his durability, before the middleweight stepped up and smashed him with ease (a Bonnar who was roided up to the gills btw)

    It was Forrest first fight after losing the belt.

    He also fought DC when he was champ.


    Might wanna rethink this TS.

    Griffin wasn't elite and wasn't ever impressive.

    He's been here since 2011. He has 10 times your activity and he is 100% right.

    You calling him a casual is rich :) You closeted Conor fan :D

    With Jones moving up to HW, Anderson is coming for that LHW belt.
