To be honest, it seems the both of you are using fights from the NHB era to justify your own points. The whole MMA game, from rule sets to quality of fighters has since changed dramatically, so I really don't think using these examples holds much water.

That being said. Franklin is Vitors biggest win.
Just because rules change doesn't take away the wins. Overall fighters have gotten better, but Vitor still had good wins back then and they can't be taken away just because things changed. I mean rules changed a lot since Pride, but we don't discredit the things that happened there.
