Apology not profuse enough, don't accept TS
competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field.
Also Fedor never generated hype against anyone not named CroCop
For a commercial, but still - there was huge buzz around this fight during the Affliction days, even by fringe figures of the sport like Mark Cuban, and fans on the message boards engaged in debate about it a shitload when it looked like it might come to pass. It was a lawsuit that stopped it
If you're defining rivalry as a purely antagonistic relationship, then sure. But that's now how I'm defining it, and that's not really the definition of the word anyway
I'm not denying that the potential fight was an exciting rumor. I was hoping to see it even more than Fedor vs Barnett. Nonetheless, they never fought, so your own response of the definition of rivalry is a moot point. They never "competed for the same objective" (winning or securing a title) because they never fought, let alone even competed for the same organization.
You know what then? Fuck all of you shertards. Fuck this site and fuck MMA. I am a 40 year old virgin with a 2 inch penis I cant get hard. The only reason I come is because likes make me feel good about myself. I need a safe place. I love you sherdog but I cant take the ridicule and shame anymore.
I can't tell the point you're making
are you trying to make the point that competition in MMA is strictly from an infight perspective? Like fighter and X and Y can't be competing to make it to a title shot, or to get a super fight, or to be recognized by fans as the best in the world etc etc without actually fighting? Because if so that's silly (especially the final case, considering that was an explicitly stated motivation for some MMA fighters during the Pride UFC days), and you're boiling down what fighters may or may not compete for into one thing "winning or securing a title".
If that's the assertion you're making, that's so silly that the hypothetical in general is pretty much lost on you and discussion is pointless, the entire point is that none of these fighters never actually fought each other. So I guess in your narrow definition, no Randy/Fedor never had a rivalry, even if with the actual definition they did.
omg wtf how dare you you casual bet you don't even subscribe to ufc fightpass, wtf so sick of tuf noobs
Fuck you! RIckson by arm bar. Who is Ryoto Machida. STFU TUF noob.
where is Goran Relijec
Funny considering it was Diaz who ducked the match.
Damn that dude got buried
Dude's no Phillip Miller that's for sure
Brandon Vera will become the first HW LHW title holder. Welcome to the Machida era
Old Sherdog I miss you so
the militant mods, the camel dog raids, the e-suicides, the larger avs for plats
It wasn’t because he was afraid of Mayhem. He was doing his own thing. I think that was around the time he fought Daley and then came to UFC.
I still miss the yellows for even the slightest spoken word. I got my first and only yellow when someone posted a back n the day prime Rhonda and pick and I said "I would the corn out of her shit". The ban hammer was always funny too.
Aldo x Pettis
I'm sorry. You're too much of an idiot to continue this discussion.
No worries mate
Have a good one
I like this list. GSP/Anderson, Uncle Dana/Tito, Ronda/Cyborg, Wandy/Shogun (not rivalry, but would have been epic at Final Conflict)
are my favs. I wish these fights would have happened.
