Also, you think Spider has to fight a guy 13 years younger than him, and a weight class above, to prove he is the best. Obviously that is ridiculous hate for no reason. Just accept his skillset, enjoy that you watch the greatest live, and stfu.
ive said these words on here before. i agree. it always makes me think about why ppl like/dislike fighters
i actually made a topic about it on here about 5 years ago
when ppl go hunting for reasons to dislike anderson it makes me think they are just grandstanding, wanting to be different
whats funny is when i became an anderson/mma fan years ago i thought i was different because mma wasnt as big then
edit: sorry messed up the quote, responding to clydebank
