Who exactly has Anderson beat that is on the level of Shogun, Rampage, Machida, and Rashad?

Forrest, that's it.
Vitor,Henderson,Forrest,Chael? I'm pretty sure Chael would beat rampage and Shogun, I know Henderson defeated shogun. I hate to play MMA math, but I'm pretty sure Silva would destroy Rampage,Shogun,Machida, and Evans in impressive fashion.

Andersons reaction while Dana said this:





This.

Oh okay so he did recently say that it might happen then???? Dont say it might happen if you dont want the fight.

I think he said something like "If it does happen id like it to be at a catchweight with not belts on the line" or something to that extent.

Anyway...

Its not a big deal. If he doesnt want to fight Jones he should just stop responding to the question. If someone asks it he should just say "Mmm Next Question". This new response he came up with isnt likely to stop people from asking him the same question over and over again.

call me a dreamer but i'm hoping it's part of some twisted 'strategy' to get JBJ's confidence up disproportionately. Hearing this type of sh*t does wonders for Jones' confidence: "even the Spider's scared to fight me. i AM the greatest, i will rule the hw division too motherfuc*ers" type of thing.

when the situation has been hyped to its breaking point, Anderson will accept the fight, teach the kid a lesson he'll never forget, and walk off with a few more millions in his pocket, ready to face whatever new adventure he has planned for the rest of his life.

i would love something along these lines to be how it goes down ...

Although Jones did win and deserves his spot, why you are so impressed with his victories? He is younger, hungrier, way bigger and stronger than his opponents. Nothing impressive at all in these results.

Anderson is the 38 years old guy beating up mostly younger fighters, sometimes larger than his weight class.

Your statement shows pure bias.

Who exactly has Anderson beat that is on the level of Shogun, Rampage, Machida, and Rashad?

Forrest, that's it.
Who has he beat on their level? Hendo who was younger than he was when he beat shogun to a bloody pulp until he gassed out. He destroyed shogun and would have won going away in a 3 round fight. Total destruction. There is one for starters.

Chael sonnen. Who everyone who hated said could bet anderson the 2nd time. Now that he lost he isnt as big of a deal to all his backers as he once was. A guy who is fighting jones for his title.

Vitor. A man who arguably gave jones his scariest test. A man that would beat page right now. A man that probably would give shogun a hell of a fight if not win.

There are 3. People pass john fitch off as an amazing fighter that gsp beat. But what really is the difference between him and okami? They both were top 3 for years.

Again. 205 has names. Names of yeaturyear. People still act like shogun is still boss hog. Yet he loses rouds to vera. 205 is overrated.

It is so bad that they are using leftovers from 185 to fight jones. All 3 fighters i mentioned are smaller, and would still give all the 205 elite minus jones, a run if not beat them.

Id pick chael vitor and hendo over page. I would give vitor a decent shot at shogun. Hendo already killed shogun. And these guys are smaller men.

Rashad is basically the only elite 205er that i would say is clearly better than those 185ers. And he is too scared to drop to 185 to fight anderson. So much so he will take on lil nog and basically wait for jones to move up. And jones def beat rashad easy. But didnt finish him in 5 whole rounds. Took him how many vs page? How many vs vitor?


Names are great. But just because they were pride superstars doesnt mean they are still amazing fighters.

This isnt saying jones isnt great. Not saying his run isnt amazing. But 205ers get overrated.

Anderson fights legit top 5 185ers. True vets like franklin. Okami. Vitor. Hendo. And straight made them look foolish. Like they didnt even belong. He made forrest, a man that not only hung in with page and shogun, but beat both. A man anderson made look like an amatuer. One of the silliest fights ever.

If hendo, shogun, rashad wAnted to cut off their flab and fight at 185 Anderson would make them look stupid too.

So add forrest to my list. A man that beat 2 of the guys jones did on his "special" run. A man that could do Nothing vs Anderson.

No sense trying to debate with Legion... He's nothing but a Troll band wagon fan. He Loves Machida one minute... oh wait he lost... Then he loves Chael...But then He lost... Then he loves Carlos becasue he outsmarted Diaz.. Any guess what his avater is going to be in couple weeks when GSP smashes him... I actually find it funny people get a rise out of this hillbilly.
