Belfort and Hendo are nowhere near in their prime. Its actually funny because Dan is better now then he was a few years ago.
20 pounds to 15 pounds... dont know how you came to that conclusion... Anderson has fought at below MW many times before coming to the UFC... He fought at 167 and at 175 right before he came to the UFC.
He also says he could make a catchweight for the purposed super fight. Not sure if Jones would be able to do a catchweight. Anderson would have 1.5 inches of reach on GSP, while Jones would have 7 inches on Anderson...
Not sure about Hendo and Vitor being past their primes... Physically sure they are, but your physical prime doesnt always mean that is when you are at your best, especially in a sport as diverse as MMA, where new skills are aquired all the time...
And im not sure if Dan is better than he was when he fought Anderson... The most impressive thing I have seen lately is his chin... Gets dropped by Fedor, recovers and lands a huge uppercut on top.... Gets hit with a right by Feijao, moves forward and lands a bomb. Takes a ton of damage from shogun later in the fight and survives...
He has always had an excellent chin and huge power.... If anything his wrestling has been less impressive as time has gone on... His standup may be better, buts its hard to say.
