Your comparisons simply suck.
Dana White is a promoter, and a salesman, and if you don't realize that, it tells me you haven't been watching MMA for very long. What he was doing is called "sensationalism." He didn't just say that A. Silva was the greatest fighter in MMA history. That much the media says. That much I say. What he said is that the media doesn't know just how good he is. That they need to make a new list for Silva. That he's in a completely different dimension. Which is nothing but pure distilled hype.

I know it's a tired aphorism: but did you actually fall off a turnip truck?
