    Yesterday just showed how great Fedor was . A lot of people were expecting the big, muscular guy to knock out a "smaller" man, bit instead the big guy was dominated, but not knocked out or submitted .

    Now go back to pride days , where hw fighters were juiced to the grills, weighting at least 250 pounds. Yeah, some of those fighters were not that well rounded (just like ngannou). Then you have Fedor, this chubby , small HW who weights 225 to 230 pounds completely destroying, knocking out and submitting guys way heavier and bigger.

    Pride Fedor would have raped Francis ngannou, and this is coming from a huge Stipe fan

    People cry when the opponent misses 2 pounds, and yet Fedor was taking down opponents several inches taller and 30 to 40 pounds heavier , without making excuses.

    Fedor is

    Why?

    Seriously, I'm not even a Fedor "hater", but what the fuck does Stipe vs. NGannou would show about him?

    it is impressive. Also, Fedor was a cardio machine.

    Fedor against much more decorated striker then Ngannou ever was. Just to make shitstorm in this thread even bigger.

    PRIDE was pure example of not having any limitations on what can fighters take to enhance their performance. It's suck a bs to remember fighters like Fedor and compare them with today's fighters.

    Fedor is the heavyweight GOAT without a doubt - it'll take much more than three title defenses to change that! :cool:

    I'm confused what Stipe vs Ngannou has to do with Fedor.

    Fedor is the best HW ever because he was beating guys like Nog, Cro Cop, AA etc... Not because he was beating big HWs like Zulu. Almost all the best HWs ever are 220-240LBs

    People love to become nostalgic as soon as they see similarities.

    Stipe showed wonderful performance, that's it. Fedor once fought in testing free environment, as soon as it was shut down - it was all over.

    What is that theory that all arguments on the internet come back to the nazis? Well, Fedor is the equivalent of that when you talk about MMA apparently. You can never have a discussion without it somehow coming back to "Yeah, but compared to Fedor...".

    Come on...You can't be serious comparing bigger guys (like Zuluzinho) with Ngannou.
    Fedor was really amazing in his prime, but he didn't fought anyone like Ngannou.
    Zuluzinho was pure body fat;
    Semmy Shilt was only a striker with zero takedown defense and zero ground game and a very slow guy. Very easy to take down;
    Brett Rogers was the closest to Ngannou, but way smaller...And he almost destroyed Fedor in 20 seconds on the ground...Ngannou is taller and much stronger and have a better chin.

    And you have to remember when a fighter much stronger and taller (Bob Sapp) appeared, Fedor declined to fight against him!

    Prime Fedor was surely a better fighter...But you can't be sure if he could destroy Ngannou. Miocic has KO power, and he hit Ngannou's chin but that monster stayed on his feet...And his few punches destroyed Miocic's face.
    Of course Fedor could win, but not that easy...And Ngannou can knock out anyone in this planet.

    Sylvia was really the only fighter Ngannou's size that Fedor finished that was really impressive. I am more impressed with Fedor finishing actual good smaller HWs

    The Achilles heel would be lack of supplements. Without that pure russian shit - it's all over.

    This thread is about Fedor finishing bigger guys. What the fuck does this picture have to do with that?
