He still beat them. If he had lost, you would have an arguement here.
Very dishonest. This is not just "someone".
Who do you suggest Nog fight if he wins the next two?
If he loses either one then he will no longer be the #2 HW in the world. Would it be ok then?
Who should have been a head of him? Why?
Well, I guess you can just look at the numbers that make up a guys record, or you watch the fights and look a little deeper. Randy has had nothing but top competition since his 2nd fight in the UFC. Three of his losses where early in his career by submission. The other losses where to top HWs and the top LHW. Oh yeah, one by cut. The myth came from
Stopping Vitor when Vitor seemed unstoppable
Beating Maurice Smith when he seemed unstoppable
Beating Randleman, who at time was said to be a stronger and faster version of Randy.
Beating Pedro Rizzo twice after the UFC signed Rizzo to the largest contract at that time, thinking he was the future of the UFC. Even now $175k per fight is a big contract.
Beating Chuck when Chuck was knocking everyone out.
Beating Tito in his prime. Again, supposed to be younger and stronger version of Randy.
What if you didn't know what their records were? What if you had just watched their last couple of fights? Nog .vs Herring, Silvia. Randy .vs Silvia, Gonzaga, Lesnar. Do they really seem that unevenly matched? How?
