    I'm a huge Erick Silva fan, enjoyed every single fight he ever fought but you're arguing against reality.

    He had 6.5 years in the UFC, 15 fights, went 7-8 and only won back to back fights, one time... and now he's 33, which is topping out for 170.

    Much respect for him, but if he comes back, it's as a card filler/gatekeeper because hardcores know he puts up a good scrap and he's game. Not as any kind of realistic contender.

    I see what you did there!

    As a Khabib fan, I still find that freaking hilarious

    strictly as a fighter

    It blows me away that Jeremy Stephens, with all his highest highs, cant string together a streak big enough to get a title shot

    the guys highs are fucking heights that some fighters couldn't dream of reaching

    but his lows are always about him getting grappledicked by other fights in the most boring fights imaginable

    Mousasi, no doubt about it!

    Cro Cop was weak in UFC.

    Are we recognizing Khabibs title fight? What about Fergs interim?

    UFC 225 did under 150k PPVs and guys like Romero and Colby are paid 300k, i am sure Mousasi would have settled for that and "sold" ateast as many PPVs

    Are we only talking about fighters who were at the UFC at some point I'd say CroCop, Jacare and Mousasi.

    Not counting interim belts Ferguson and Mark Hunt.
