    Sherdog without troll threads would be like pornography without nudity.

    He is a Bellator fighter. He should be discussed with Bellator fighters in the Bellator forum.

    Why don't threads about Fedor's threads go to wasteland Franc?

    So now you are going to tell people what they mean by former pride? I sort of take it as any topic concerning pride related content. But maybe I am missing something.

    You don't get to re-define it like that.

    Fedor is former Pride so he is fair game.

    Yes he is, he was also a pride fighter. Sometimes things get complicated. The rules still apply. If people were discussing the specifics of a Bellator fight with an ex ufc fighter then maybe there would be a complaint. The moment you focus on the individual in a general way, that may complicate the situation.

    If I started a thread saying," Bellator fighters Fedor VS Frank Mir", then then you have a complaint. If I said" Fedor vs Frank Mir", how does it play out today and how do you feel that would differ when they were champions in Pride and the UFC. See the difference?

    The ufc still owns rights to content for a portion of both of their careers. I am not sure how many people need to say this to you in different ways until you get it.

    How can I be trolling while having a legitimate argument at the same time? LOL

    I don't revere Fedor as a God because I didn't have the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of a fight week while Fedor was fighting. Is normal. Not trolling.

    Fedor's 2-4 record inside the cage was not with PRIDE, so I am not talking about PRIDE. I don't care about PRIDE. Why should I, when the UFC is the best version of MMA to date.

    Fedor is a pioneer. The guy went undefeated for a very long time (inside the ring, very important difference). I have never been dismissive of this achievement. I am just not convinced he is the GOAT, especially when MMA at its highest level is fought inside a cage, and not a ring.

    The guy lost to Matt Mittrione, in my opinion, a GOAT talent will NOT lose to a guy like Matt Mitrione. He lost to a guy 2 years younger than him, who only started fighting in his late 20's. That is GOAT disqualification for me.

    If you want to call Fedor GOAT of ring MMA, I will have no strong counter argument against it. But if you are going to compare with GSP, Jones, SIlva, Mighty Johnson, it makes sense to me to call him GOAT, when he hasn't been good inside a cage.

    I am not interested in getting into a debate with you about things that have zero to do with what the topic was. I don't care what you think of Fedor, Santa, or Ronald Mcdonald.

    I said you are taking what seems like a legitimate argument and using that to disguise your troll bullshit. You felt according to the rules that the threads were not allowed based on the fact this is a ufc forum. That is easy to understand your point of view based on your knowledge of the rules, hence the legit argument, not to be confused with a factual statement of course. You sprinkled in a bunch of unflattering comments in hopes of stirring shit, we will call that the trolling part.

    You were then quickly schooled by a poster who has a far better grasp of how the rules work and from that you should respond with a thank you for clearing that up. Of course you did not because your true intention was to cause shit.

    So if you were a fan of his and thought he was great, would you be here bitching because he is on this forum and fights for Bellator? I have a feeling we all know the motivating factor behind you taking the time to create this thread and it had little to do with upholding the rules. If you have not guessed by now, there are a lot of intelligent posters on here and you have been called out right from the get go, nobody is buying your story.

    Lets try and focus here and get to the point that is on the table. The guy can be talked about on this forum.

    He is a Bellator Fighter. Truth.

    Why did the moderators create a Mayweather vs McGregor subforum when McGregor is a UFC fighter? Because they didn't want a bunch of MayMac threads overrunning the forum.

    This is how I feel about Fedor, he is currently a Bellator fighter, there is a forum already suited for discussion about Fedor. What are most of the Fedor discussions? Is he better than this or that UFC fighter. He never fought in the UFC, and he fights for Bellator, discuss him over there.

    Just send him to the Bellator subforum. If he was retired, I would understand him being discussed here, but he is a Bellattor fighter, and there is a subforum for Bellator fighters. LOL

    If the facts are not flattering to you, then I can't help it. They are what they are. Cheers. LOL

    The reason why it may be accepted was already presented to you. If the reality is hard for you to accept then sorry about your sad feelings.
    Good luck with your crusade. I have a feeling it may be a waste of energy.

    Anyway, you said cheers. I take that to mean that you feel we are done and I agree. Take care.
