    That's not fair, he's had some big fights, including major KO's against Ben Rothwell and Roy Nelson, and I think he initially won his title belt with the UFC by knocking out the previous holder I think, it was awhile ago.

    IMO he has concentrated so much on his boxing that he has forgotten other aspects of MMA, such as kicking, takedowns, wrestling, and submissions. He has become so 1 dimensional that he is very predictable. This guy has a Black belt in Sambo and is a Purple or Brown belt in BJJ…why doesn't he try taking someone down? MMA is not boxing but he it seems like he is mainly working on his boxing.

    Andrei had a decent run back then. He for certain deserves more respect than people are giving him. He doesn't look the same these days, but he aged and we have a new breed of heavyweights coming into the mix. Much respect to him, even though he's probably not gonna win anymore.

    I think he's got a chin problem but he is still better than most heavyweights out there so there's no reason to retire.
