    I think DC wins, he is 100% taking Fedor down and his sub defense is elite. Jon Jones would also beat prime Fedor, but it would be more violent

    where? In Pride or the UFC.

    Fedor gets wrecked in a cage.

    DC keeps impressing me, but I really don't see it.
    DC could obviously do some damage on the feet, but Fedor was competitive on the feet vs Mirko, so I have a hard time seing DC beat him there. On the ground it would obviously be all Fedor.

    I think Fedor would be too fast for DC. He was able to take a lot of damage back in the day too.

    Fedor got out scrambled by a much older Henderson and went face down ass up.

    Cormier is an Olympic caliber wrestler.

    There's no talk of prime Mayweather, an old past his physical prime Mayweather beat Canelo. It's like if Fedor beat Miocic right now.

    DC is an absolute beast, so no disrespect to him when I say that I'd take a prime Fedor to beat him in a very exciting matchup.

    Prime fedor zulus cormier. Prime fedor was much lighter on his feet and would zip in and drop dc ala zulu, goodridge, sylvia, nogueira etc etc

    Dc has never fought anyone as fast as prime fedor. The closest thing is gustafson

    I think by the rogers fight, fedor was already passed it. He still dropped rogers, but it wasnt via a hyper quick maul like in the past. It was via a flat footed bomb. Still a bomb nonetheless

    This is always hard to understand for the younger fans. Soon people will say that Jones was never that good, when he loses after years fighting. But by watching his fights, you will see the things he did.

    Since you seem very concerned with prime... Fedor had a very long prime compared to most HWs. He went through 2 "generations" and 7 years as the no 1 ranked HW in the world.. 10 years and 30 fights undefeated, while playing full contact sambo every month at the same time.

    I really don't see a prime Vitor struggle with an old Marquardt, or A prime Anderson struggle with a ww in Nick, but they did after fighting for a long time. I know it is hard to see, but it happens to everyone. You will see it happens to Cormier too.

    I think you can agree that only by watching the way Fedor fought, moved and his transitions, that he would be a top guy even today. Cormier is a world class wrestler, just like Hendo, and just like Fedor is a multiple world champion, and one of the best Sambo HWs ever.

    Black Fedor would serve prime Fedor.

    in a better timeline we could find out for sure. That would be an awesome fight. I think Fedor has a slight hand speed advantage

    The two GOATS could night fight each other, would cause a rip through the time space continuum.

    Is that because you don't feel Cormier can take people down in the middle of the cage and needs the fence?

    It’s certainly a possibility. I would favor Fedor but Imo DC has the best chance of beating him than anybody else
