    Both have their draw backs, but I think the Ring works best. It looks better too.

    I always told people that Josh was going to be the first guy to defeat Fedor. His size, grappling, and cardio were the perfect recipe for a win.

    #HUMBLE GOAT !!! Fought in the ring during his prime. Beating Legends in their Prime. Never looked the same in Strikeforce and Bellator... Just want to see him go out with a win after a storied career.

    Lol Fabio won that fight and honestly ended Fedor. They could have and should have stopped the fight atleast 3 times, but no they had to cheat and now Fedor is a zombie with no chin and no future fighting

    His last fight with Mitrione was pretty funny actually. Double knockdown with youth, size on Mitrione's side allowing him to recover quicker to get the TKO.

    what are you talking about, he is russian, and we just found out that virtually every single russian who thought about competing in olympic sports was a drug cheat for the last 40 years.

    Im sorry did Fedor win that fight, oh wait they never faught. This thread is about Fedor being unbeatable in a ring which means not so unbeatable in a cage or very beatable in cage which seems to have taken place once he left pride. And no I will not stop posting

    Instead of admitting your error, you reply with more crap.

    pathetic

    That, pretty much, summed that fight up. Didn't find it "funny" though. Was hoping for one last trick from Fedor.

    No cheating was done and considering how he finished the last 2 rounds, dont see how it should have been stopped.

    Also, he was 38, in his 2nd fight back after a 3 year retirement. His days of being the best HW currently are done. That doesn't negate anything he has done though.

    Yes there was cheating not only in the scoring but also in the appeals process, the whole thing is documented.

    And cool you don’t think it should have been stopped but it likely took years off the guys lifespan

    Why does Fedor continue fighting? Is it because he still has the fire to compete, or did that large entourage drain him of his funds in God's name?

    Professional athletes rarely realize when their skill level has deteriorated.

    That applies to several other guys who fought 20+ times in a ring, and then had to fight in a cage.

    Guys like Dom Cruz would lose half their weapons in a ring.
    On the other hand, a guy like Jeremy Stephens would be far better in a ring.

    I actually feel bad for people that call Fedor this and that..

    Know this, nothing you can say will diminish anything he did or achieved. If you missed it, you missed something amazing.

    WAR FEDOR. ALWAYS!!

    In a game of subtleties, the cage and ring are quite different when it comes to spacing.

    I can see why Cro Cop was so effective in the ring: the ability to corner his opponent.

    Meanwhile, the cage is perfect for fighters like Lyoto who can constantly circle away and reset when necessary.

    That being said, there could be a lot of factors that affected Fedor’s decline. Regardless of cage, caliber of opponents, PED testing, etc., the man undeniably got old. Happens to all of us.
