    Here is a shocking stat for you, After 2010 Fedor had 1 more fight than Cain. While in this meantime Fedor was retired for a brief 3 years. Even in the twilight end of his career, a washed up Fedor is more active than the so called GOAT who was meant to replace him from his HW GOAT position.


    After 2010 Fedor had 10 fights with his 11th coming in couple of months. On the other hand Cain had 9 with his last being 2 years ago in 2016 and no one knows when he will come back or if he will ever.

    It's not easy to be GOAT.

    It's probably easier when you're allowed to use PEDs though.

    With all due respect you really think Fedor is really showing up ?

    Last time we legit saw him it was in the Tim fight.

    What we saw after wasn't the GOAT and in current times it's just a shadow.

    Tbf, if everyone is allowed it's an equal playing field.

    It's the same as no one being allowed.

    Sure, but Fedor was allowed PEDs. Cain was not.

    Am I missing something here?

    Uhm not sure if serious...

    Cain fought in the UFC. No one was allowed to use PEDs. Not only Cain.

    It's the exact same as fighting in an organisation where everone is allowed to use PEDs.

    The playing field is equal in both situations..

    Nothing better than watching people struggle to realize that Fedor is the GOAT.

    The comparison is Fedor to Cain, their success and durability.

    Fedor performed under conditions where PED use allowed.

    Cain was not.

    Fedor looked better, and was able to compete longer.

    If the NFL had steroid league and a clean league, who do you think would is more likely to perform and recover better?

    Oh, I see what you're saying.

    But one could argue that since fighters were on PEDs and their strength and power were enhanced, the damage they can inflict to the opponent's body is bigger.

    and one could argue PEDs help performance and recovery.

    Here is a little information for you, After USADA era Cain has only one fight in UFC. Before USADA came in, testing was piss poor at best. Testing by ACs are easy to get around. So if you believe that Cain wasn't on sauce kind of exemplifies your naivety.

    Because being allowed and poor testing is exact same thing.
