lol, just keep living in the past bud.
or jump to the next hype train
Dumb! Jones destroyed shogun to become the champ. Beat Rampage, Evans, Machida, DCx2, Vitor, Gus. Aside from Nog and Crocop. Fedors comp doesnt even compare to Jones.
Half of Jones wins are over cans.
Which is it? Was Shogun a scrub when Jones made him tap to strikes? Was Shogun a scrub when he KO'd Lyoto quick & easy and arguably should have won the decision in the first match?
Was Lyoto a scrub when Shogun beat him, but not when Lyoto outclassed Rashad and KTFO'd him?
Some of you truly sound like crystal meth addicts with permanent brain damage. Are you guys posting from a drug rehab center?
One fights bigger men. The other fights smaller men. Im more impressed by Fedor when he was on top of his game.
Jones has a more storied career and more big name victories. His feuds with Rashad and then DC were dramatic and he overcame both. Along with the comeback after drugs etc.
Fedor fought the best of his era but then stopped fighting the best and started fighting guys like Zulu. MMA is a lot tighter in this era. Everyone is a well rounded MMA fighter now, instead of being a "kickboxer or BJJ guy who can get by in MMA".
I've never felt a mystique around a fighter like the one around Fedor though. People really thought he could beat up animals and shit. They called him peak human and said he could take out Batman, and he looks like a bald librarian or a professional curler from Canada. (Kevin Martin)
The aura around Fedor was similar to the aura around Anderson, it seemed like they were both magic - but Fedor a little moreso.
Jones seems more like a guy who is just crushing people, he doesn't have a magic aura, imo anyway. He just seems like he's bigger and more skilled.
^ Good point. Dominating guys in the modern era who are more well rounded and dangerous should be given more weight than beating guys who barely got by in their older MMA era.
jones and it aint close
wanna compare then use gsp and jones
fedor shouldnt be named, fedor was a hw who lost to a mw in hendo lol gsp is a ww who would smash hendo lol
yes mma is way tougher now to string together wins than it was before especially considering who jones faced
I wont even respond to this since I am willing to bet more than half of Sherdog would be happy to disagree with you.
Meh...yeah but I only named a few, if you look at Fedors resume from fight 1 and up he fought many others that had awful records, some were just freaks with size, and some were not ever true heavyweights as we know them. Also no fighter can truly be compared to another but to the TS question I answered the best I could with what I knew.
To me, Fedor was impressive because he was a small heavyweight. Jones is undefeated, and his skills are impressive as well, but he is a giant in the division. They are impressive in totally different ways to me.....
No one brought race into this. You're the first one. lol
They're both absurd quality athletes. Fedor gets the edge for me because he took on bigger guys that were high-level and wasn't popped for roids or hide under a cage from the testing committee.
I know people will claim the whole can thing. Those people have no sense of history, and he was more active over his decade of undefeated work. Also, let's note Jones gets past-prime guys more than Fedor did. But tit-for-tat on quality and slight shade for both careers.
