    Turned into this:

    Which turned him from this:

    To being obsessed with religion and surrounded by useless yes men:

    Of course he started losing.

    No sane hater can argue against this points.

    Tim Sylvia fight was his last legit performance...This or that Fedor is not the same guy back in days and he wont be that guy again...No doubt something happened his TST levels it may be some depressing or something different but without the enough amount of TST you are not the same guy...

    When his every other word became God, I KNEW that he was f*cked.

    Religious fanatics piss me off.

    Fedor started to piss me off.

    And I don't like it that my favorite MMA fighter has become a f*cking puppet.

    No I didn't.

    I finally expressed the situation as clearly as it gets. So STFU.

    I see you re a huge fan but being religious is not the only reason that Fedor sinked badly no doubt there are a lot of other facts that made Fedor look bad after his legendary Pride run...Even a blind man can see Pride Fedor and after Pride Fedor are two different guys...

    I have to agree

    Fedor used to surround himself with top people for his fights.. brought in Tyrone Spong for his Cro Cop fight. Trained with high lvl bjj guys for his Nog fight

    Towards the end of his career, everything suddenly became "gods will" and training camps consisted of push ups, pull ups and some cardio

    His "TST levels" were I'd say the most steady decline, you can see he starts to lose muscle mass as far back as late 2004, maybe it gets a bit faster around 2009.

    I would agree the Sylvia fight is the last time you can look at him and not see any clear decline in form although of course it wasn't a long fight. That said I do think the biggest decline is around the time of his loses and I suspect a big issue is not just the religious posse and general lack of motivation but the fact he was no longer fighting in as hyped matchups. Sylvia and Arlovski were matches many years in the making, Barnett even moreso and the Rogers fight actually came quite quickly after that was cancelled. The following SF fights were in retrospect very legit but they weren't anywhere close to as hyped.

    His obsession with religion is the biggest reason, because it f*cked up his priorities.

    Hell, religious fasting even directly made him physically weaker.

    He stated years ago that he stopped doing proper S&C/weightraining and was only doing grappling/striking to refine his technique..
    It certainly didn't help and cumulated with his aging and religious zealotry led to the Fedor or SF...

    Also you have to consider the fact that both Michkov and Voronov commented about the fact that he wasn't training as hard as needed/used to and his mind was elswhere..
    And this is especially legit as they started talking about it prior to the AA fight ( Fedor had a mini camp because he was filming some C-level action flick in Thailand )

    You think that way I think the other...I am also a huge fan of him but nearly all the fighters talks about Jesus religion etc and they look very religious for example Vitor his nearly every word was about Jesus but he was doing very well..Feeling the God s power behing you always gives you extra power...
