    I see people saying Stipe is an all time great HW off beating up guys way past their primes(Hunt, Reem, JDS etc).

    Does anyone remember how much of a badass Sergei was in his prime?

    Awesome boxing, top submission game and iron chin.

    He has wins over Reem and Werdum when they where young and dangerous. I don't see how Stipe would beat a prime Sergei.

    For those who only worship the UFC, Dana and the garbage Joe Rogaine spews, educate yourself on Sergei and you just may gain some perspective.

    Discuss.

    I wish he had came to the UFC at the same time as Nog, Crocop and Shogun.

    If a Prime Sergei arrived in the UFC tomorrow he'd be a serious contender.

    We were so lucky to have the HWs we had pre-USADA... It's never gonna be the same again.

    Sergei was definitely amazing in his prime. Now he just trades and gets rocked too damn much.


    If anyone has the time on another note. Please go to YouTube and watch Franics Ngannou's first pro mma fight. Very interesting.

    Pretty sure Sergei has already proven to have trouble with good grapplers. Stipe would GnP him to death.

    Sergei never did anything Stipe hasn't or couldn't. Stipe would of K.O'ed prime Sergei worse than Alex and Reem.

    He met with them to negotiate but it didn't work out.
    He was competing in boxing/kickboxing and probably wanted to keep doing that.

    He would have been really fun to have in there.

    His grappling was good when he was in Pride.
    He let it go after that when he was no longer concentrating on MMA. He HAD the talent and ability, at one time.

    Don't forget about pre-rape Aleks E., he would also be a good test for Stipe.

    Igor would of destroyed Stipe. Hell, Gary Goodridge would of tko him. These new breed of heavy weights sucks. Mark Hunt would take Stipe's soul.

    I see your point, but young Aleks had great punching speed and trained with Red Devil Sports team and wasn't scum back them. He just seemed to not be as focused on MMA as Fedor. But dude had the size and speed.

    Only way Stipe wins is if he takes him down but if it remains standing Sergei would more than likely KTFO Stipe

    You could say that about Stipe vs any legendary HW. Quick examples:
    Fedor (in a ring)
    Cro Cop (in a ring)
    Big Nog
    Mir (I favor Stipe by a lot here lol)
    Prime Barnett
    Prime JDS
    Pre-injuries Cain
    Hell, even roided Timmeh, who had some good TDD and was tall and long.
