Just like online poker sites, Sherdog's .com and .net entities operate in different space-time dimensions.

See what I mean? Overrated Frankie gets the light but not Fedor? Sherdog you need to grow the fuck up, seriously and hope off Dana's dick...lemme guess this is where I get banned for being upfront about my opinion.

I thought it was a good list, but I couldn't believe he wasn't on there. Fighting guys like Zuluzinho and Hong Man Choi? Those are true giants. Thing also was, Fedor has always had a little extra weight on that belly of his. If he was fit and trim he could get to 205. He was robbed of not being on that list. And I'm not even a fan!

Fedor not a giant killer? LOL.

From now on, Sherdog is only a forum for me, nothing more.

fedor should be on the list given the other names on the list.

but as to who qualifies as a "giant" on fedor's resume....

his fight night weight was pretty close or greater than most of his good wins. the true giants he beat weren't great (mma) fighters. but he beat enough to make the list comparably speaking. although royce did so at a time where it was surprising. fedor was a huge favorite against most of the "giants" he faced.

Well, one of henderson's big mentioned wins was against Fedor, of whom he was close to in weight during fight night and that could be said for just about everyone on the list, that their best win's were closer to their own weight.

I fail to see how it's part of the criteria.

fedor had 16 lbs on hendo, which again is more than most of fedor's top wins.

how could weight not be part of the criteria in assessing beating "giants"?

again, i think fedor belongs on the list, but i think the "giant" killer status is a bit overstated. most of the giants were very beatable (and were beaten by other smaller fighters).
