    Luke Rockhold, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Daniel Cormier, Cain Velasquez, and even Jon Fitch...

    All world champion calibre in their respective divisions.

    It's really hard to dissociate AKA from the injuries though.

    It's like saying "barring all the times in which he fucked things up, Jon Jones is the best fighter in the world". That might be true, but you cannot really separate one thing from the other.

    True, but it's kind of pointless when the entire team of elite fighters never actually fight, due to patellas turned into nutella.

    Khabib isn't an AKA guy, he just trained there...and still didn't learn how to strike.

    Just shows you Cain and DC should be middleweights. The fact they carry so much weight makes their knees get as damaged as they are. Cain looks barely bigger than Khabib.

    And yet he still weighs 90 lbs more during competition (so 70 lbs more outside of competition, likely).

    What did you learn?

    That Cain and DC are fat and need to be in a more appropriate weight class.

    AKA constantly injuring fighters seem to be a knock against the idea it "produces the best fighters", because, in order for a fighter to be in the conversation of "the best", the fighter has to fight.
