    People act like Fedor ducked lhw division because he had a speed advantage. But most of his HW fights he grappled with bigger men. Just telling.

    I never heard anyone say that. But you're right anyways TS, Fedor was a grappler above all, with much bigger men, he didn't prance around like Dominick scoring points on the bigger guys.

    Actually a lot of people try to use the "he ducked LHW" argument. Which is laughable at best.

    Who the hell ever said that?
    Since when is it considered "ducking" to fight at your natural weight, rather than to be a punk bitch and dehydrate yourself to have a size advantage over your opposition?

    It's not fair. Just like Jones' reach advantage over his opponents. They need to divide the weight divisions with a speed class, and a reach class for each weight.

    You got a source for HW being bigger than LHW?

    did you serious?

    alot of zuffa zombies discredited fedor saying he was only good cause he fought weak competition at hw.

    there were even morons saying cormier gonna struggle in lhw cause he wont have speed advantage no more

    lol that's funny. If anything Cormier will probably be more dominant at LHW.

    Yeah, an undersized hw ducked a lighter weight because he was fast....

    That didn't even make since typing out.

    The ONLY reason he should have went to 205 is because he could but opted for harder fights like the g he is.

    I don't recall the ducking LHW claims.



    Chuck said "I would fight Fedor....if I had too".

    That quote says alot to me.

    That's why i consider Fedor the GOAT , he was an overweight light heavyweight dominating heavyweights .... the guy was an amazing fighter in his prime from 2003 - 2006 i think where his prime years ... his peak was in 2004 imo.

    It is possible that somebody did indeed use that argument once, but I've never seen it. Anyway, it's a ridiculous thing to say and worth dismissing.
