Some of these posts are so bad that I think some of these wankers are being paid. Some of these posts sound a lot like "He didn't fight the best in the best org."

What comical here is I'm putting AS higher than you are here in this regard and yes we've argued about this prior.Dude this is a forum, show the fuckin gif's that show"AS getting hit with a huge punch (no hand punches- the fighters weight must be behind the punch) in which the fighter delivering the punch did NOT have his arm fully extended when contact occurred. BTW yes AS is so good a lot of the time he can even move his head partially out of the way as well (often arching his back too) aiding in the lessening of the blow.

Every example that is given you find some comical reason to excuse or discount it. 'His arm was fully extended'...'he was off balance a little'...'it was a full moon' etc etc etc. We get it. You don't think Anderson has ever been hit flush before....LOL.

Did I not say that (The reason no one ever lands full flush on Anderson is BECAUSE of his defense)? Because that was my fuckin point ("IMO AS is the greatest defensive striker ever (by light years).As far as the rest show the punch (GIF), Hendo's arm fully extended the punch glancing (as AS moved his head away even partially).

So Anderson is amazing at rolling with punches, so that somehow negates that Hendo connected with a super solid punch??? Your "challenge" is comical. The reason no one ever lands full flush on Anderson is BECAUSE of his defense.

i just rewatched a bunch of times, the funny thing is that the sound was out of sync with footage in the tape I was watching LOL. It took me a while to figure out WTF you were even talking about (or Joe). Anyway yea, Hendo broke a clinch with a knee before throwing that right. In point of fact BTW that knee was a pretty good one. Hendo did throw a right, his arm was fully extended AND it was a glancing blow to boot (in fact AS as always LOL even moved his head partially out of the way). Right after is when AS throws a left and clowns Hendo with 2 knees which really ended the fight (the rest was a matter of course).TTT for the GIF (again). The challenge stands.Anyway as far as the thread goes AS's overall striking defense must be taken into consideration (just as his striking must too of course). It a far stronger point over a lot of what the Zuffa trolls are bringing. It is what it is.The gif requested above should help illustrate the point.As will these:http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/jj589/hartsook1/a7d558b3.gifhttp://tkohub.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/silva-griffin.gif

Yes, Hendo clocks Andy when Andy started pouring it on and Dan was i think hurt but still dangerous as always. Moments before he goes down, Andy is fighting in the pocket and seems to eat the right hand. Suprised you missed this, Hendo Thiaguy. I think Andy ate it on purpose though or had it measured to some degree. Whenever he starts doing his hand riddum thing or gets in the groove and attacks, it seems he sees everything and knows exactly where everything is Matrix style and i think this was a great example.
