Whats with all the Thiago Silva hate? He is 4-0 in the UFC, he did it against less than stellar competition but thats how everyone starts out. Now he is stepping up his competition and hes overrated? Maybe I dont see it but it seems to me most people believe he is going to be demolished by Machida, its not like he is that hyped up. And if Thiago Silva is so overrated then why is a win over him good enough to put Machida in for the title? If Silva really isnt that good then he shouldnt be a quality enough win for Machida to get a title shot. I mean if you ask the casual fan, I bet this is the first time most of them are ever hearing of Thiago Silva. Maybe im just blind to it but I just dont see him as overrated.

WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you know what "overrated" means??

Bit of a ridiculous thread as anyone that goes out there has my full respect to be honest and all this overrated/underrated stuff is insignificant.

But i will say Brandon Vera gets right on my nerves,i have never seen him look good(against someone worthwhile),supposed top class muay thai,where??i havn't seen it.Just bores me.

Jeez, where to start. I'm in no mood to narrow all down to 3 like the rest of you, so I'll go by division.

HW.

Lesnar - 4 fights
Mir - Dead career > green Lesnar > Punch drunk Nog > Green Lesnar
Velasquez - Sure, good fighter, but he sure as hell doesn't look to menacing.

LHW.

Keith Jarine - One of the most inconsistent and IMO lame fighters I've ever seen. How does he keep getting ME's? He's not even appealing. Sorry.

"" ""
"" ""

MW.

Jake Rosholt -- F*cking terrible striker. Wrestling isn't the end all be all of MMA.

Kendal Grove -- Well, this was before he fell off the face of the earth, now I guess no one even remembers him.

For the sake of conversation, I'll say Bisping, but he's making worth of his talk. I just don't think he should be fighting Hendo.

WW.

Jake Shields -- Terrible striker, weak wrestler. Would no doubt get torn up by most WWs.

BJ Penn -- He beats Matt Hughes 5 years ago and he thinks he can just come up anytime he wishes and get a title shot.

I'm going with 2 as there are some fine fighters at WW.

LW.

Clay Guida -- Great fighter to watch, and extremely frustrating to fight. But that's sort of where it ends here. It appears he just doesn't know how to finish a fight. But don't get me wrong, he's a great fighter to watch.

I don't know, I'd like to say wrestling is pretty overrated and overused at LW as it seems like thats all you need, but that'd just be wrong, so I'll keep it to myself.


Man, I sound like such a flamer, but I love it. I guess this is why trolls do it

Funny I actually think Keith ardine is underated but that is just me

my top 3
1.)Fedor

2.) Cro Cop: not so much now but I always thought he had a fighting style that if yu watched his footage and actually came up with a game plan you could beat him every time

3.) is a tie between gsp and bj penn. with these guys they have the potential to live up to the hype and ratings peope give them but I dont believe they have cought up to their hype yet. I think they both can live up to it but do I think they are now..not so much

Now I am a fan of everyone of these fighters I just think they dont live up to their hype
