    It's tough enough going into a fight being the firm "favorite" and having a long record to defend. But when you also have to carry the weight of being "the pound for pound best" things are taken to a whole new level. You are the golden star of the sport and people are looking for perfection. They want to see exactly WHY you're considered to be the "best". Jones carried that burden into the fight last night and look what happened? though he won, he did not look like the same fighter we'd seen previously.

    And just imagine that Jones had it for one fight yet Anderson and Fedor carried that load on their shoulders for SEVERAL years!!..and each time they stepped into the cage the pressure increased over and over again.

    This is what made those two so special!!..it's not just about their records!!..it's about how they performed when they stood alone infront of the lights, cameras and the eyes of an expectent audience.

    But Silva fought at middleweight and the division was weak and Fedor ducked the UFC.

    Silva tapped X 2 and got KTFO

    Fedor tapped and got KTFO



    Jones didn't tap and took his beating with an injury to go on to win the fight. He's the GOAT.

    He "was" on the same thing he's on now.

    Silva has had unimpressive performances. So has Fedor. Your thread doesn't make sense.

    He didn't look the same because Gustafsson is that good. What the hell is this about? Are you saying Gus is on the same level as the majority of Anderson's title reign? If so, go home, you're drunk.

    Yesterday we saw what makes Jones and Gustafsson great. Threads like this are retarded, there were also a bunch when Silva lost. Fedor or AS dont have anything to do with last night, they're all very special fighters who have had great careers and, in Jon and Alex's case, they have very bright futures ahead of them.

    really?
    Fedor faced questionable competition throughout his career besides ducking the UFC. He knew maybe he'd get banged up there

    I know what ur thinking bro, I like fedor a lot, definitely one of the greatest ever, but saying anderson shouldnt even be in the same sentence as fedor is pushing. Gotta hespect the legends of the sport not only ur boy

    And of course, the instant Jones loses no matter how many years from now all his accomplishments will be instantly erased.
