Then he'd point out that the slam wasn't what KO'd him, it was the inadvertent head butt at the end of it, and show you the teeth marks to prove it.
c-mon riverhead....rampage was OUT? Please look at the fight again! The triangle was loose. When arona finaly got it tighter rampage slamed him. Now this is a span of ten seconds. NO way rampage was out. Sure his head hit him with the slam....but nonetheless...it was one for the ages!

People are riding the GSP bandwagon now, but if he gets stopped by Kos, his achievements will look pretty miniscule when compared to what Wanderlei+Anderson Silva, Chuck Liddell, and Fedor have done in their prime.
Miniscule. SO Wandy's run was great but there was no drug testing in pride back then..Wandy had veins on top of veins and zits the size of golf balls on him..let's not mention his aggresiveness. He was roiding in my eyes. A silva has face many decent fighters and many many cans. Liddell....did Fantastic agaisnt wrestlers...He was NEVER good at fighting strikers...and it reared it's ugly head when he had to. Fedor has accomplished the most out of all of them. But you can't ignore the fact that his record has the most cans EVER!
I'm canadian so my opinion here will probably be overlooked. GSP is fighting the new breed of fighters and winning. The Wandy of old kept fighting the same guys over and over. Same with Fedor...Nog three times...Lindland?..and I don't want to get into the travelling circuss guys he has fought. A Silva doesn't give rematched and that is a weakness! (Rich franklin..the only one..Kinda like Liddell fighting tito over and over and over)
What I'm trying to say is that when Fedor ws fighting the only good heavywights were Nog and Mirco. A Silva's division is WEAK..Wandy was roiding and beating up smaller fighters. GSP Is fighter guys with amazing training camps..conditioning...the new breed. To dominate the new breed of fighters is something amazing.
My P4P/GOAT list of entries: these are not in any particular order but After each of these guys fight again it will be clearer.
Fedor (dependant of next fight)
A silva-WEAKEST division ever. please Cote...Leites...Maia..leben..lutter..james irvin?...the list is pathetic fro a man considered the best!
Aldo-needs a fight at 155 to gage him
Edgar (Dependant of next fight)
Cain V-(dependant of next fight)
HW- Mir, Brock, Fedor, Cain
LHW-Shogun, Tito, Mousasi. Rampage
MW-Hendo, Sonnen, Mayhem M
WW-GSP, C Condit>Nick diaz, Fitch wonderboy?
LW-Penn, Edgar, Cerrone, pettis
Fighters I LOATH 1-BISPING
