I have somehow managed to miss every fight Alexander has had in the UFC, and this one will be no exception since I have a show that night, dammit!! However from what I've read and a few highlights I've seen, he seems pretty legit.
I personally believe Shogun deserves every accolade he gets, and that he is one of the true legends of the sport... however I also believe his ship has sailed, so I'm voting for and rooting for the new kid just keep some fresh contenders.
Gilbert Milendez - Anthony Pettis
Carlos Condit - Erick Silva
Anderson Silva - Mike Bisping
Lyoto Machida - Jon Jones
Alistair Overeen - Junior Dos Santos
