Fedor last oponets have gone down the toilet lately. That is not his fault that Timbo lost to a 47 year old boxer, or AA can't beat former sideshows. Or that the Grim didn't even bother to show up to fight Roidman!

Fedor is a legend, and was and might still be the best HW. I like Strikeforce but would love to see him go to the UFC and see how he would do against the likes of Lesnar, Carwin, Dos Santos, and Cain! I still think Fedor is better than those guys, but it would be nice to see it! lol

......and we'll never know. Too bad Fedor doesn't care enough to try.

He was a legend in Pride! But for a lot of people whether it is right or wrong... You got to do it in the UFC!

I don't even get how it is possible that Fedor could make more $$$$ with M1 Global? I think he can make more $$$ with sponsership alone if he were a UFC fighter!

I think the guy is also quite the patriot. I remember reading something on his website once a couple years ago about "doing the right thing for the mother land" or sumthin like that. You'd think a true commie would get in the U.S. and take as much money as he could from our dumbasses, whether it's from ticket sales, sponsorships, roles in porn, whatever. Who knows.

He has never fought anyone like Brock Lesnar, he has that to prove. He has never beaten a third generation heavyweight (non-can), he has that to prove.

There goes your "point".

He beat the **** out of dreadful fighters for years and somehow that turned him into this invincible machine.

Granted I think he's certainly shown the skillset to be considered the best HW in the world, you have to be incredibly naive or a hardcore Fedor dickrider to say his resume puts him in a position where "it could be a long time or we may never again have a fighter like him."

If what you say is so true, prove it against legit competition. Not ****ing Brett Rogers or Hong Man Choi or Matt Lindland or Mark Hunt or Zuluzinho or Tsuyoshi Kohsaka or Naoya Ogawa or Yuji Nagata or Gary Goodridge or Kazuyuki Fujita or Egidjius Valavicius or Heath Herring or Semmy Schilt or Chris Haseman or Lee Hasdell or Ryushi Yanagisawa or Bobby Hoffman or Babalu circa 2001 or Kerry Schall or Mihail Apostolov or Hiroya Takada or Levon Lagvilava or Martin Lazarov.

He's got 32 wins and all but probably 6 are against absolute **** fighters. He's done nothing to leave a legacy other than beat up a bunch of guys that almost anyone in the HW top 10 right now would've beaten up.

The only part of your statement that's true is that it probably will be a long time before someone fights a ****ing phone book full of ****ty fighters and is declared combat Jesus in the process.

The guy is a great fighter and certainly the greatest HW in history to this point, but he's seriously, seriously lacking quality wins that will mean anything in three years let alone by Christmas.

Gangster'd.

The question you can answer to continue with your argument is who at heavyweight is showing signs of being the next Fedor?

you're a moron. Fedor hasn't done **** in his career. i don't know WTF you're smoking buddy.
