I agree with that, and in his time he was great. Ken just didn't see the sport moving as fast and evolving as far as it did, and he couldn't keep up. Give the man a break, he is 42 and still had better conditioni9ng than half the guys on the UFC 61 card.

Respect is due, he just doesn't know enough about different disciplines to compete or coach imo - doesn't take away anything he did before.
