Pride usually proceeds the fall
He's also been deemed the "Greatest Mixed Martial Artist of All Time" by the UFC and his worshipers, and yet, all time is infinite, so it's a nonsequitor to suggest that, and plus, he was "gifted" a lot of tomato cans (Luter, Cote, Thales Leites, Forrest, Bonner, Okami, Irvin, Leben) for at least half of his fights in the UFC. Then, he fights a fairly 1-dimensional Chael twice, and a washed up for the most part Hendo.
Yet, we're told he has "cleaned out the division" and is undeniably the "Greatest MMArtist of all Time".
He wasn't "gifted" anyone. That was the best talent that the UFC had that were middleweights. It is not his fault that he was that much better than all of them. At least he tried going up in weight some also. And Hendo washed up....he went to KO Fedor a couple of years later. Oh wait, but he was washed up too, right?
As for the minute meditation...Ever watch boxing? Fighters will leave their opponents in the ring for 5-10 minutes just because. What he did was not a big deal, IMO.
