I think the fights he has won make them more meaningfull because mostof the time he was a big underdog, he was said to be too old to compete at a the highest levels of MMA, and on the occasions where people tought he had no chance against the younger/stronger ooponent he came out on top, so it is alot of hype, guaranteed if randy was on his 20's when he did this, he wouldnt have even half the hype thats around him right now, but you also cant just say he is only popular because of this and that and not his fighting skills, you cant deny he has is the only person to hold titles multiple times in two different weight classes, and even though he didnt defend the titles as much as other champs, its still a pretty big accomplishment....................i have never considered randy to be the best in the world, but i recognize that he is amongst the best to compete in this sport.
I totally agree. I also have never considered Randy to be the best but have always admired the way he carries himself.
Their is very little chance that other competitors still underestimate him.
If he can take Tim to a decisive decision and stop Gonzaga he would still be considered a top HW.
If he was 20 years younger granted their wouldn't be as much hype but i'd safely say he would be considered a top 5 HW.
He will always be remembered as one of the greats because as juanez13 says he held the LHW & HW titles multiple times as well as being a great spokes man for the sport.
