When Discussing Legends...
...Why do people forget to include Jose Pele Landi-Jons?
Pele's one of those guys who has beaten his share of great fighters, and he was one of the first guys to use the Chute Box, muay thai style in an MMA setting. Not only that, but he knew how to grapple, which made him one of the first complete fighters.
Even in losing, he had some really good fights against Newton and Matsui. He was always game, and I liked that about him. He fought way past his expiration date, but that doesn't diminish his legendary status, at all.
So yeah, Pele needs more love. Dude's an MMA legend.
