    His skills deteriorated drastically at the end of his last run. All he wanted to do was end the fight quicks using his gifted speed and power at heavyweight.

    He has lost the discipline to train his skills and age also caught up to it. Since his last fight, his age has only increased, and his skills has not been practiced as much. What makes people think he won't get absolutely embarassed by any top 20 UFC heavyweight if he came back.

    Add on to that, his aura is gone. No fighter is scared of Fedor anymore, what he looks like is a huge stepping stone that will propel them into the number one contender spot. That's all he is.

    So what you're saying is that he's basically a Paul Buentello type fighter. Yeah GTFO of here.

    You should have watched his last 3 fights where he did the opposite of what you said.

    The fact you said he would get embarrassed by any top 20 Hw if he came back show s you have no sense what you're talking about and shouldn't have an opinion on this.

    Hey, who knows.

    Werdum is 38 and on top of the world. Anything is possible and Fedor is legit as fuck.

    His skill set is on par with the top fighters in UFC, even still.

    Judging by recent photos, his strength is still probably there.

    His conditioning was always good, and being that it's one of the last things to go in most athletes, I'd be surprised if showed up minus a gas tank.

    His fight IQ was always exceptional, save his "head-hunter" phase from about the time of the Sylvia fight to his loss to Hendo. And fight IQ never goes away.

    There are aspects of his game that are questions marks as to where he could stand in the current HW division, though, being speed/reflexes, ringust, and the possibility that his chin is gone. Only taking a tune-up fight or two would clarify these things to fans.

    Fedor almost finished Dan Henderson who was juiced, and landed harder bombs on Big Foot that snapped his head back several times and was also juiced to the gills, besides Werdum who beat him that hasn't used PEDs?
