Heros of the Golden Age dropping like Flies!
Strange time in MMA! All the hero's of MMA are starting to look bad!
Big Nog gets TKO'ed by Frank Mir
Chuck Liddell gets KO'ed by Rampage and Rashad. Then he drops a decision to Keith Jardine.
Shogun is submitted by Forrest
Wanderlei gets Ko'ed three times in the past two years and then drops a decision to Chuck Liddell.
Cro Cop gets Ko'ed by Gonzaga, drops a decision to Cheick Kongo, was getting dominated by Overeem.
Matt Hughes gets destroyed by GSP twice and then loses to Thiago Alves.
Gomi puts on two lackluster fights then gets submitted by Kitaoka in under a minute.
Evan Tanner gets KO'ed by Yushin Okami and loses a boring decision against an overrated Kendall Grove.
Tim Sylvia but on lackluster performances against AA, Vera, Monson, gets dominated by Randy Couture, gets submitted by Big Nog, and gets destroyed by Fedor in just 36 seconds.
Tito Ortiz unfortunately became more of a glorified business man. Did slightly better against guys like Rashad, Forrest, and Machida then other fighters but never really looked the same since his chrushing defeat at the hands of Randy Couture.
Now my question is do you feel depressed or excited that all this is happening? Personally, I kind of like it. Yeah it sucks seeing are favorites going down but its exciting seeing new up and comers coming into there own against Elite level fighters. Showing that this sport is evolving.
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
