Anderson Silva has been hurt because of a lack legitimately threatening challengers
why hasnt this affected gsp? why didnt boxing fans care when tyson was going through this same dominance? why do mma fans have such a hard time marveling at anderson's virtuosity?[/QUOTE] and his horrendous fights with Leites and Maia.[/QUOTE]How can these fights be still be used as a crutch to hate him after his performances against sonnen, okami, belfort or forrest..
Anderson is absolutley loved but because of his dominance he needs a stronger dance partner to make people believe he can lose.
how many times have we seen wrestlers take him down.With analysts playing up the narrative that he has weak TDD.Yet hes still undefeated in the ufc.Any other fighter and that would be enough but once AS disposes of a wrestler after the fact suddenly they were never good enough
Never hurt Matt Hughes fan base? When was Hughes so beloved? The guy was never really popular and drew poor numbers in his day.
neither has rich franklin really but a large part of the ufc core audience acted like these fighters shit didnt stink
Henderson may not draw PPV's but nobody under WW besides BJ Penn ever has.
true but u cant say edgar received the same amount of vitriol bendo did after his controversial title victory
To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
