    Think? Cormier would beat him senseless and it wouldn't even be close.

    God knows, I am not a DC fan but he is a beast at LHW and HW. Great chin, great cardio, insane wrestling, tons of power.

    Fedor would be on his back eating shots all night long.

    Frigging Babalu went to a decision with Fedor, no chance DC's chin would fail in this one

    Do you people even read what the hell you post? Obviously not.

    Fedor bigger, stronger, and faster than DC my ass. This has to be the funniest full of shit post ever on sherdog.

    Fedor small ass is definitely not bigger than DC. Fedor was 220 - 230 pounds at most. DC weighed close to 250 at HW.

    I'm not sure what in the world makes you think Fedor is stronger than DC, please tell me what brings you to that conclusion? Anyone with a brain knows DC is stronger than Fedor without question and would have a strength advantage easily. DC flipped Josh Barnett over his head with a broken hand, Fedor could never do anything like that.

    The speed advantage would probably go to Fedor BARELY, not by much at all. That seems like the only part you thought clearly about before posting.

    He also used Bigfoot-fight-Fedor as indicator of prime Fedor's performance :D

    Sometimes is like they don't even try lol

    Even if Fedor lost that fight I'd still view him as the superior figher because of his diversity and will to finish opponents. Just the more sensational fighter. Like the Red Devil Fedor vs dick pill Jones. If it's in a ring with pride rules Fedor submits him. Prime Fedor in the octogon idk.

    He was definitley one of the most agressive forward moving fighters in MMA. Thats one of the reasons why people love watching him. Look at what he did to Sylvia.

    But the downfall of past prime fighters isn’t just due to their age but to the evolution of the sport and their failure to keep up with it. That’s why I usually favor modern fighters over “golden age” fighters in these fantasy match ups. The modern training camps, coaching, striking technique, strength and conditioning, quality of athletes, and level of competition these fighters face (which makes them better) is just leagues above the 2004 mma world.

    I’m a big Fedor fan, and I think it would be a great fight, but if have to favor DC.

    A. Sambo is practiced almost exclusively in Russia, and this was before grappling was anywhere near as widespread and practiced as it is now.

    B. Name the top flight grapplers Fedor beat off his back. Cuz that's where Cormier would put him. Repeatedly.... I'll wait.

    So you think prime Fedor would get treated like a 43 year old trtless He do?

    That doesnt sound right to me.

    Has anyone got a list of the 5 or 10 shortest opponents Fedor faced? Like Bigfoot/Werdum/Mitrione & Hendo were on opposite ends of the spectrum.

    A lot of morons in this thread.

    DC is one of my most favorite fighters in the sport but the amount of UFC geeks in here writing off a prime Fedor as some bum make me fucking sick.

    DC has a great talent but anyone who watched his fights with Mir and Anderson will tell you that a prime Fedor would give him all he could handle.

    The mir and anderson fights arent a knock against dc to me. Those were easy fights. Hardly broke a sweat.

    Fedor's hand speed is a hair quicker. Slight edge for the Russian.

    Fedor wins 3 of 5, DC wins 2 of 5.
