LEKS - Wow, why the hate on vitor? One of my favorite fighters for sure. Even though he lost I thought his fight with John jones was impressive. Jones been making top light heavyweights look like amateurs. Phone Post
I too have been confused this whole time. Phone Post

UGCTT_ Lay'n'PrayNINJA -  He had won 10 of his last 12 fights only losing a split to rampage and Fedor. Phone Post

Rampage had been 2.5 years earlier, and Fedor about 2. Come on.

And what happened after? When you look at a fighter's career, you have to look at the whole thing, not just out-of-context slices. Fact is, Lindland went down and down fast. He did not age gracefully, with slight decreases in skill/ability. He got old real quick. You could see it in the Nascimento fight, which went to decision but should have been an easy win over a middle-of-the-road, miscast welterweight.

Rankings/ratings are, by their very nature, trailing indicators of a fighter. They don't react quickly, and massively overweight current perception which often proves to have had both outsider, and historical, bias.

For his career, Lindland was a very good fighter, but not elite. When he fought Vitor, he was neither very good nor elite; he was faded.

Not impressive?!?!

Vitor once won the UFC LHW championship by karate chopping a guy's pupil in half. True story.

Basically nobody in the sport has impressive wins except Fedor as far as I'm concerned.

And to be honest I'm not sure about him because the guys he beat didn't have any impressive wins.

I have always thought that if he had beaten Chuck and Tito (both very close fights), then Vitor's career would be looked at in a totally different light. Phone Post

Even though he has 2 losses to couture his 1 win would be considered impressive to me. If I recall it was for a torn eyelid though. A lot of his losses came during the time his sister disappeared. You could tell he was off. Other than that he has really only lost to the best in each respective time frame. The guy has been fighting guys in the UFC for like 15 or 16 years. Phone Post
Yeah but there's another thread on here just now praising the guy for only losing to hall of fame calibre fighters.... Even though he hasn't beaten any.

He doesn't belong up there with those guys. He's NEVER been good enough yet everyone seems to just go along with the idea that he is one of the good old boys.

He's not. He's a middle tier fighter. Phone Post

HoF level opponents he beat?

Randy

Franklin

Wand

Seriously dude won against some very tough opponents. Don't be a fuckstick he is a UFC tournament winner and back then that shit meant something. He is a former UFC LHW Champ. So in closing you suck OP.
