Not only does he talk smack then get fed often and hard, he's the only fighter I've ever seen lose with no grace! When he fought Sakuraba he whined to the refs and left, same with the Tito fight. Others may have done it, but have only seen him do it! Sometimes I think he believes he's still working for Vinny Mac.

A classless has been/never really was who needs to call it a career and after seeing him "coach", forget about that as a career as well.

His legendary status is the result of UFC needing a "idol" to promote the sport. Nothing more, nothing less! Ken my boy, look at the clock 14:59 and counting!

I don't know who said that Tito Ortiz is the UFC's Muhammed Ali, but they obviosly didn't watch Liddell/Ortiz. I never saw Ali get dominated like that.

I agree with you on saying that Ken Shamrock is beginning to resemble Tyson as far as the numbers go, but not outside the ring.

I also think that Tyson was a much better boxer than Ken ever was as a mixed martial artist. But that's just my opinion.

uhhh, Gracie only lost in UFC ONCE!!! that's why he can still be called the greatest. Shammy sucks...... well just 'cuz he does. He's lost almost as much as he's won, that's no hall of famer, he just gets props for fighting for peanuts back in the day.

Let's Bang!

I'd say Hughes is the most dominating fighter in UFC. When you look who's he's beaten name wise and how most of the guys lost its pretty impressive i think.

But the only reason i wouldn relate Hughs and Ali is because Hughes is very humble while ali talked alot of smack.

Edit: Ya but graice also hasn't beat any big names in a while. I'd like to see Gracie vs like GSP, Rich Franklin, or other big name fighters in the UFC. I'd have to say Kimo and Ken Sham are good fighters but there not to the status of GSP and fighters no days. Also beating guys like Kieth Hackney isn't the most impressive thing i've seen, i still think gracie is another example of someone getting worse strickly because of the fact he isn't learning much Mui Thai or Boxing, he's sticking to little kicks and submissions, which works up to a certain degree.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
