When guys dominate well into old age it looks way more suspect than when a guy drops off when he hits 30, changes organizations and fights under new rules as an undersized guy for his weight class.
Fedor dropped off at 33 because people naturally drop off in explosiveness as they get to 30+. Look at NFL RB's when they hit 30. Look at mr anti-steroids BJ Penn. Started to drop off at 31 with his losses to Edgar.
There are a lot of fighters from PrideFC (and UFC) that you can have reason to accuse of steroids. Fedor is not one of those athletes.
i think Fedor lost motivation when he aged ,he wasn't training that hard.
For cro cop ,knee ,back ,shoulder,eye and ankle injures took a tool ,probably few more i didn't mention
Big Nog or Lil Nog couldn't get a camp without injury since forever.
Saying that i doubt Anderson Silva a middleweight could win this , Jones would pound him out ,Fedor would knock him down and pound him out , Cro cop would land few brutal leg kicks and Silva would be done ,JDS would land something big on silva and it's over...
