Naughty Gorilla - Who is your GOAT? Anderson and GSP have lost to far worse fighters than this. Fedor lost to the man himself. JBJ? let's talk a few years from now.

SuMBJJ - Shields and Misaki both beat him.

GSP or Anderson. Phone Post

I was somewhere between a 09er and an 11er. I don't remember.

No you're a 19er, get lost. 

 No - I used to post here years and years ago and left. Don't remember the email or username I used. Rejoined last year for some reason.

2019. A 19er. 

I was here before you even were, if we're to assume your join date is your only account. So cool story, bro.

RKing85 - Up there for sure, but no way the GOAT.

Top 10, but definitly not number 1.

Madrugadao - lol The delusion in here is incredible.

You usually expect the GOAT to at least be the champ in his division. The guy isn't even the best in his weight (either weight) let alone the GOAT.

The only significant belt Dan has held, he won by beating a Wanderlei that was already past his best. As soon as he had to fight someone who wasn't half dead, he got beaten (both times).

I mean, what has he actually done to deserve such a title? Someone please let me know what makes him stand out above guys like Anderson, BJ and GSP?

The guy isn't even top 10 GOAT, shit he isn't even top 5 for either of the divisions he has fought in. Picking and choosing his opponents hardly helps his cause.





what?

I'm a big fan

Hendo is not the GOAT. He's up there because his proven P4P prowess is clear; likewise, UFC fighters who cut to fight in weak divisions and/or avoided the best when they moved up or backed down from their stated goals to move up and fight the best are not the GOAT either.

Everything moves forward the GOAT is fighting today IMO, who he is will be clear in a short time. Right now it's Fedor by default.

judom - In a recent interview Hendo says:...just give me a heavyweight...

damnnn...the balls on that dude !

Do we have a fighter like Hendo these days ? He is a true fighter.

With all these champions like GSP and Silva scurred to go up a weight class and get smashed. Or Alves cutting 30 lbs to get down a weight class. WTF.

Hendo just fights and crushes fools down. Old school !

MW GSP is actually a very tough matchup for Dan. I'd pick MW GSP over MW Dan.

Good thread bump. Hendo is a legend and one of the all-time greats.

He's top 10. Might have been top 5 if he was able to get that UFC belt.

 

Hendo vs. Shogun is my favorite fight.
