Props to Chael for taking the loss the right way.
I don't like Bones, but I'd say both he and JDS have got a jump on Anderson already, in terms of how many solidly-ranked fighters they've already beaten in a short career. With Anderson's unequaled string of defenses, he still has got a lot of fluff on his resume, and if JDS or Bones can continue to perform at the level they're at--while still coming into their relative primes as a fighters, the sky is the limit.
They might not get 10 defenses, but I can see them beating more solidly ranked opponents in their careers.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
