– greatest striker in the sport’s history (knockout power in feet/hands/elbows,accurate,versatile,creative)
– extremely experienced
– expert in a number of martial art disciplines
– great chin
– preternatural ability to avoid/dodge/defend opponent’s strikes
– light on his feet
– lightning quick striking ability
– dangerous in the clinch
– underrated ground game
carries an aura that can intimidate most opponents
– has been in deep water before & found a way to win
– extremely long reach



– can get bored in fights often – stops trying, gets passive, ends up toying with opponent
fight with Sonnen showed that he can be taken down & controlled by an aggressive wrestler
lots of mileage on his odometer
– iron chin might is on the decline
– had a very serious leg injury
– was suspended for PEDs multiple times
– elderly for a fighter
– seems hesitant to pull the trigger
– piling up the losses now



The greatest fighter in MMA history is now long in the tooth, but still putting in work in the octagon.
