    Now who has lost all credibility? Have you seen the trailers for fedor v crocop. Of course not. But if you had,youd see that pride was extremely pro mirko. But fedor won. Weird huh?
    Fedor would go on to comment that he coukd tell they wanted him to lose.

    Isn’t Fedor the epitome of winking by luck? He closes his eyes and wind mills punches. Also Struve>Maldonado

    So you’re a sheep and believe fight trailers? You’re definitely a virgin.

    All of those Fedor hate threads come from the same 2 guys and I’m pretty sure they’re the same guy with two accounts

    Aside from the fact that he stopped training hard, small fighters who rely on reflexes fade faster. George Foreman types, with chins and one shot power last longer.

    lol true, but if each of those threads shed some light on it to a single person, then there are now 1000 more people who can appreciate fedor.

    Mike Tyson fell out of his prime before reaching 30.. fighters age differently when you lose that edge for x/y reasons shit happens.

    Fedor lost his edge in 2008/2009 in my opinion.

    just poll the fighters...Fedor's status as one of the GOATs is quite secure, and many would still claim he is the HW GOAT.

    the respect of his peers matters way more than what a bunch of fickle 'fans' think, who probably have not even seen half of his fights or considered how much better the Pride HW division was vs. the UFC.

    It's a factor, but you'd think beating guys up for 10 years without being on the losing end would serve as "proof" of longevity.

    Fedor was a monster and one of the most offensively versatile mixed martial artists ever. However, his style was often reckless and provided openings to get hit. As his reactions and explosiveness declined, these openings became magnified ever so slightly and he was unable to adapt.

    These types of fighters tend leave their prime earlier than others who are more patient, conservative, and defensively oriented.

    If the promotion favors or is biased towards a fighter it will show.
