Not even close. MMA was at it's peak when both Pride and UFC was at it's best.
Right now, the UFC has a collection of the most talented fighters ever, and we get to see MUCH more action inside the cage. That puts it way ahead to me.
Tito Ortiz, Chuck Lidell, Dan Henderson, Rampage Jackson, Shogun Rua etc. aren't as talented as Jon Jones.
Every heavyweight with the exception of Overeem and Fedor arent as talented as JDS.
Anderson Silva is the greatest fighter of all time.
GSP is the greatest welterweight of all time.
Ben Hendo can fk off and stop ruining my great streak above.
Jose Aldo to my knowledge is the best FW ever.
Dominic Cruz and Mighty Mouse....ehhhh....whatever.
The fact is, right now with every division, maybe except MW and the new ones, being completley stacked to the top, I dont see how right this second cant be the best time MMA has ever seen. I'm all for nostalgia, but sometimes you have to let the past go and stop complaining about what we have now. Plenty of rap fans complaining in the 90s when NWA and 2pac were around, plenty of boxers complained when Ali and Frazier were around. Looking back, they were wrong, and in like 5 years looking back, you'll realize that you were wrong.
