    Do you think Fedor's last sad performance was due to what factors:
    1. Age?
    2.New testing?
    3.Fighting a guy who has better striking ?
    4. The sport had passed him up?
    5. Was never that good in reality?

    I think Fedors main weakness is his strongest asset: his offense. It opens him up to counters easily. If Fedor played it safe he could easily decision most heavyweights in the UFC. He's reckless and he pays the price. But props to him. The man got balls and deserves GOAT status

    he wasn't always reckless. he systematically took Cro Cop down using very tight defense and great timing.

    I disagree with 5, also 2 probably isn't accurate either..

    The other 3 apply

    older, weaker grappler turned into a striker. Its like if Khabib learned how to KO people standing

    Maybe he just got caught?

    Maldonado is a tough bastard, remember him sparking Glover out of nowhere after Maldonado had been smacked around badly?

    Their is no evidence to support any of the options given nor is their any way possible to get evidence so why start a rumor thread ?
    Just like Royce Gracie he was a lol legend when he knew something nobody else did but the first real MMA fight where he took on Matt
    Hughes in an MMA fight where his opponent also knew Jitsu he got the brake shoes beat off his ass. Renzo did better than him but Matt
    embarrassed both of them. I am still looking for this amazing BBJ from big NOG against equal opponents but still no sign of it. It just goes to
    show you their is no G.O.A.T only a greatest at that time.

    Everything except for #5.

    How can anyone say he was never any good when he was the undisputed #1 heavyweight on the planet for almost a decade?

    Your first instinct (#1) is the correct answer.

    He is past his prime, and his reflexes, cardio and chin aren't what they used to be.

    With that said he still showed amazing heart in that fight. You can argue it should have been stopped (I personally agreed with the ref not stopping it because he was still actively trying to defend) but even though he is now shot as a fighter he still did everything in his power to keep fighting.

    His skills are gone but he still has the heart of a champion.
