| | Is Dan Henderson a top ten MMA fighter of all time?!?
Just a general question....
I know his legacy is still being written, but you hear so much about "GOAT" talk already. The common names I hear being in the top ten are
all getting a few mentions but not yet being placed in the top ten yet. Is it the opinion of anyone here on this site that, given all his accomplishments thus far, Dan Henderson has earned a spot in the top ten of all time?
GSP is the man! He kicked Matt Hughes's ass, then told him to keep his head up! LMAO!!!
REPPIN SHEER UNADULTERATED IGNORANCE!!!

Im probably going to catch shit for this,but...
I wouldnt put Chuck or Royce in the top 10 of all time,same with BJ,and here is why. Royce did so well,because he was protected,the UFC did their best to keep other JJ guys out of the tournaments(thats why Big John is a ref and not a fighter),he looked good because of how bad everyone else was. As for Chuck,I would of put him in their, if not for what hes done to his legacy lately, he kept putting himself in fights he had no buisness being in. How Wany didnt KO him I will never know,but hes been KO'd so many times, I feel he has tarnished his legacy,even Randy said if he ever lost like that he would hang it up,one of the reasons he wants to retire soon,if not right now. As for BJ, he has done so much,but he could of done so much more, did he rule over a division,no, did he beat the best competition put in front of him,no.
Just trying to out my fan boy love aside. Would I put these guys in the top 10 most influencial fighters of all time,without a doubt,but skill wise I'm not sure, maybe BJ,but Royce has no other still then bjj,and Chuck lacks the mental discipline to know when to stop.
EDIT: And as for Hendo, he has done alot.But once he entered the UFC he couldnt do much,and it took going to SF to win another belt,against lesser competition. And even then he was gifted the LHW belt after Jake schooled him for five rounds. But, he held two PRIDE belts at the same time,so,Top 10 he is.

No, I don't think so - he's obviously a great fighter, but he lacks defences of his titles and has too many losses against the top competition he's faced to make him top 10.
