Anderson Silva was finally exposed. We all wondered what would happen when he fought someone who wasn't afraid of him, who was a great wrestler with good striking. And he got KTFO. He was never great like we thought. I mean, he only has one 'great' win over Hendo on a bad night. Besides that, he resume is littered with solid wins (Vitor, Rich), fights that were too close considering the competition (Chael), and embarrassments (Maia). And he has losses to Takese and Chonan for God's sake. To be the GOAT, you have to always be great. It's a rule.

Fedor, too. I mean, yeah, the guy beat Mino and CroCop. But that's it!! He spent the rest of his time getting knocked silly by Fujita, slammed by Randleman, and fighting cans. When he finally left Japan, he lost twice and then got KOed by a middleweight. To be the GOAT, you can't get old and you can never fight sub par fighters. It's a rule.

GSP. George Stall Pierre. I mean, c'mon. The guy has lost to Matt Freaking Serra. And besides that, when was the last time he finished a fight? He couldn't finish Dan Freaking Hardy or Jake Shields. To be the GOAT, you have to finish every fight. It's a rule.

Jon Jones almost got submitted by Vitor Belfort. LMAO!!! Other than a win over Machida, his wins were over guys who were either washed up (Rampage, Shogun) or overrated (Rashad). You think beating Chael Sonnen makes you the GOAT? Think about how this board will act if he loses to Gus! Never was that good!! To be the GOAT, you have to beat people in their PRIMES. It's a rule.

BJ's record is 16-9. Randy's is 19-11. Chuck has a glass jaw. Royce almost lost to Kimo. Sak lost to Wand x 3. Hendo has never had a run of dominance. Hughes wasn't evolved.

Etc., etc., etc.

Needless to say, this sport has never had a good fighter. Everyone is overrated. And they all suck.

Good satire.

It is tough to be GOAT in a sport where a single loss once you have entered your prime can be used to invalidate all past successes.

GMan99 - Good satire.

It is tough to be GOAT in a sport where a single loss once you have entered your prime can be used to invalidate all past successes.

This is my exact point.

If you thought that Anderson's career - with the moments of dominance, magic, and triumph - made him the GOAT before Weidman, you should still think that.

People cherry pick information all the time. The point here is that there is a case to be made against every fighter. There is also a case to be made for each fighter. BJ's talent and balls; Hendo's resume; Anderson's magic; Fedor's reign; GSP's dominance and competition; Jones' destruction; Royce's innovation.

We cherry pick and diminish the greats. They are all great.

It's perfectly acceptable to argue who is greater. That's part of being a sports fan. But it needs to be done in the context of recognizing they are all great.

10/10 and VTFU. Sadly, there are many on this forum who actually believe this kinda shit. This is why we can't have nice things.

Thanks.

My point about the vote ups wasn't to whine. I'm pretty happy with my reputation for sensible and occasionally knowledgeable posting. It was to make the point that others have made: this post is so obviously tongue-in-cheek that it's painful. People need to slow down and actually read stuff.
