This, Murray's incident with Tito and his incarceration has made him a larger than life character and his mma abilities have become grossly exaggerated.
Grossly exaggerated like some mythical figure.. no he was a solid top level MW MMA fighter. Above Bisping's level. And still would be IMO.
He made quick work of a better, younger Jorge Rivera. He was better back then compared to Bisping of today.
If Murray wasn't a crook, he would have continued evolving and he'd still be better than Bisping.
