Nice photoshop. I don't know who I would pick here. Lesnar has a glass jaw but would outweight him by 60 lbs on fight night.

I always thought Fedor was over-rated. The heavyweights in pride did not impress....so he beat Nog and Crocop. Look what they did when they came to the UFC.

Also, though drug testing is a farce at least they have some of it here. In Japan there is nothing. Take Shogun, for example. Look at some of his old pride videos on youtube. What he did to Rampage should have gotten him arrested. The guy had a nonstop motor.

Then, look at him now. Yeah, yeah, I know about the knees but this is night and day. Wandy is not the same. Silva has thrived since he left Pride, which makes me believe he was probably clean there. Hendo the same.

Not a fight Id get excited about, Fedor is past it and I never thought Brock was anything special, the upcoming JdS vs Overeem should be much better.

Not sure what you mean here, Ruas done fine in the ufc (except his loss to Forrest on his debut) whereas Wand as much I enjoy his fights has been poor and Im not sure Id use Henderson as an example of a clean fighter.

Lesnar is not the same after his second stint in the hospitall. Man has some serious health problem.


How can you think hes not special though

Did about 10 different sports before mma then moves in and becomes one of the top guys immediately.

Rua has not been the same. As I say, look at the old pride fights. Now he looks like he is in slow motion. I will drop this right here for your pleasure.

Shogun beat an overhyped Machida, an over the hill Liddell and Coleman, but finally got brutalized by JJ. The Hendo fight was good, but Hendo is 40 and Rua I think is still 29 and he lost. That should not have been close because Shogun should theoretically still be in his prime.

Good catch on Hendo. I forgot about his "testosterone replacement therapy". lol.

Very few fighters have been the same since moving from Pride to Ufc, despite the similarties there are differences between them and people fought more freely in pride. Like I said, I like he's done alright compared to others.

Not sure what his ten sports are but I give him credit for attempting to play football and think he did well in mma but I just don't think he was going to remain at the top table for too long.

Well, well. What a shock.

Anybody that has even remotely followed this guy's transformation from skinny light heavyweight to now knows WTF was going on.

Let me tell you a little secret......

95 % of all the UFC fighters use/juice/use TRT. Mir grew almost the same in less time but because nobody made a JPEG to show you, you don't know.

So stating someone uses after he got caught is easy...
