Why is the word legend overused and misused in MMA? I been hearing Chris Leben being called a legend and artom lobov being called a legend and other MMA fighters that are not great. How can you be a legend with so many loses? They need to stop it. I think the reason why they call them legends is because they don't have any real legends. Tell me of a current MMA fighter with 30 wins and 0 loses and has been champion. Fedor is a bum now. He should retire. Randy Couture is a bum. He has many loses it's embarrassing. Chuck Liddell is a bum. He has so many loses and his last fight against Tito Ortiz was embarrassing to MMA. They try so hard to create their MMA version of Floyd Mayweather and it never happens. Anderson Silva was great, now he is a bum. He should retire. Dana needs to pay these guys more.

In MMA it is harder for guys to duck tough opposition, in the way that say Mayweather ducked Pacquieo until they were both in their upper 30s. Or the way that Joshua and Wilder have yet to fight. The closest current fighter in MMA to the example that you have requested is Khabib Nurmagomedov the 27-0 current Lightweight Champion of the UFC. Why have a fighter pad their record against weaker opposition?

I do agree that MMA fighters deserve to be paid better.

You don’t need to be undefeated to be a legend, and in the UFC there’s no cans like in boxing. Chuck Liddell was dominant in his time, and most of his losses came when he was past his prime. A. It ridiculous to call these great champions bums simply because they’re past their physical peaks.

then Khabib is proving himself that it's possible to be undefeated in MMA. I want to see him reach at least 30 fights undefeated. GSP could have been undefeated since he won all of his few rematches for the few fights he lost. I think it's better when fighters start building their record so maybe after 20 fights they should then compete for the belt. Boxers fight more. The reason why you have fighters like Chris Weidman and Ronda Rousey who became champions with only a few fights is because they fought the best with only a few wins and won but since they were inexperienced they eventually lost. You can't always just fight the best, you have to build your record first, work your way up, that's why boxers are great at what they do, they mastered what they do, but Dana is about making fast money so he puts fighters who aren't ready to fight in championship fights too early in their career.
