    Bas 100% great ambassador for the sport, never any controversy a true martial artist against a steroid cheat who's arrogant and disrespectful to his opponents, weidmans ko of him is still my favourite Mma moment

    In his prime years, nobody beats Anderson. The guy had literal spider sense for like 5 years.

    Looking like a win towards Bas Rutten. I'll leave it open until the end of the day here in case anyone missed the thread on Friday.

    Bas liver targeting when he is in his prime is really accurate, AS can no defend.
    AS in the other hand has a good counter style, but as middle weight vs heavy weight , i choose heavy weight.

    Bas already won. Posting the next match up today. But just an fyi, the purpose is not necessarily to focus on weijght class, since then the heavyweights would automatically win. More who is the 'better' fighter, however you wouild define better.

    Bas rutten wins over in his prime Anderson?

    We'll have to assume someone threw a banana peel in the ring and Silva slipped and knocked himself out.

    Anderson seems to be a lot more agile and loose, where Bas is more of a one hit, one kill type fighter. Anderson is like a F-22, whereas Bas is more like a M1 Abrams.
