You're definitely not giving Marquardt enough respect, imo.

That, too. Marquardt f'd up in the first fight. After he kills the Maia hype, we'll see a better effort.

By the way, Henderson didn't just "abandon the game plan." Henderson got smoked.

so since all of anderson's wins in the UFC are tailor made, who do you suggest he fight? he had to fight franklin for the title, lutter won the opportunity to have a title shot, franklin sort of earned a rematch, marquardt earned his shot, henderson was already champion, cote and leites were given title shots for some unknown reason. if silva is gonna compete at LHW, what's wrong with him fighting forrest? it seems like you're just mad about him destroying your boy and making him run away again. oh yeah all of fedor's fights have been tailor made for him too. he's just better than all the other HW's in the world so of course he will win. just like anderson is better than every MW in the world. of course he's going to win as long as he comes prepared to fight. i would like to see him fight mousasi at LHW though. that could be fun

Why not Mousasi at middleweight? That's where both guys should be fighting, anyway.

Didn't everyone think that Hendo was "tailor-made" to beat Silva because of his superior ground game, in conjuction with his great chin?

Way to diminish all his wins.

As to your question, he became the unstoppable force, IMO, when he got his BB in BJJ. He hasn't lost since.

He looked pretty solid at LHW to me

Yeah, he did. But don't you agree he has potential to be even better at 185 pounds?

Thank you for stating the truth that Anderson haters are allergic to.
