What makes him a legend in many ppls eyes though already is the inspiration he gives. Also I dont see Randy as much of a legend he can never hold a title long enuff and the division was weak when he was in his prime.
#1 Lyoto "the Dragon" Machida
#2 Junior "Cigano" Dos Santos
#3 Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
#4 Fedor "Last Emperor" Emelianenko
#5 "the Prodigy" BJ Penn
Im on another level now
