Anderson obliterated Maia? He made a fool of himself in that fight. He was gassed in the later rounds and decided to act like an idiot.
After casually beating him stupid for three rounds and getting disgusted when he refused to engage.
Hendo won round one against Anderson, sure Anderson got the sub in the second but its not like he brutilized Hendo before that.
Did you see round two? He mulched Hendo in round two. Stuffed him, rocked him, and finished him. How many others have managed that?
That front kick against Belfort was a good kick, but lets get real, how many times in a lifetime does one fighter win with that kick? I think a e-match would be much more competitive.
It was a good kick but the most impressive part was Anderson dodging a full speed Belfort combo at close range like he was god damned Neo. Their is absolutely no indication the rematch would be different. In fact Belfort's history says otherwise. He breaks mentally when he can't blitz his opponent and he knows he can't blitz Anderson.
But lets not discredit these guys wins, they are both fighting the top guys in the division.
Anderson has had parts of his title run where he has not faced the best comp. He faces Cote and Leites back to back. You beat who the UFC put in front of you and if you can do that then great.
You spend an most of your post discrediting some of Anderson's best wins and then you say this. This is exactly the same as spending a post talking about how women are less intelligent than men, giving examples, and then saying "But let's not be sexist". It doesn't actually hide the fact that that is exactly what you are doing.
Anderson doesn't choose his opponents. He fights whoever is put in front of him. Chael does the same. Discrediting either person's victories is stupid and undermines everything fans of either man actually respect. So please stop doing it.
Back on topic - Chael would die in a kickboxing or boxing match with Anderson but you can't expect him to say it. Just like Anderson would lose a wrestling match with him. The biggest question is who gives a rat's ass? Are they going to have a boxing match? No. It's more of the same pointless attempt at hype from Chael.
