Of all people, it was Brock Lesnar who made one of the most salient points about MMA a few years back.

When the discussion came about somebody beating somebody else, and how it showed one fighter was better than the other, he noted that a win doesn’t prove absolutes like that. He noted fighting was a sport of quarter-inches. The punch, knee or kick lands in the right spot, just misses the spot, or doesn’t land at all is often just one of those things.

Lesnar knew from first-hand experience. One of his biggest wins, over Shane Carwin with another ref, could have been a loss that destroyed his career as a headliner. Instead, he left the cage that night the biggest star he ever was.

Today, Alistair Overeem is an overrated bust in many people’s eyes, another in the realm of Japanese superstars built on tomato cans who got exposed in the regulated UFC environment. And it’s hard to argue that...

Reem's knees are almost mortal now that he's off the juice. Let's not forget he beat ole Brocky still on the juice. Also Steven Siler has made my douchebag list nothing against him, but for the fact he KO'D MTB!!!>:(

Also WAR CHAEL!!!! I think that's the best he's looked since the Nate fight. Man was it fun to watch! Reign is a good fit for a Wrestler.

I have always liked shogun and his style but he is definitely not in the upper part of the division anymore it's a fact.
