    Anderson Silva is my favorite fighter ever but i know a flying japanese pro wrestler humiliating the gracies is the best thing that ever happened to MMA

    Man, time flies, I remember these like yesterday. Great fights/finishes that bore great pictures as well.

    I remember Andrei's vlogs leading upto Fedor fight, and after the fight. I don't think he was a same fighter for a while after that. Soul crushing loss if there ever was one. Unfortunate that Arlovski forgot he was fighting Fedor, not Ben Rothewell, for a second..

    I know lots of people don't give credit for beating Tim/Arlovski, but they didn't get out of UFC because they were bad. They were more like Werdum's case. They were top 5 opponents, but people forget that.

    to this day I wonder what could've happened if Barnett didn't piss hot and literally shut the organization down for good...essentially...

    Anyhow I digress...interesting thread idea for sure btw!

    Nothing beats Saku over Royce in my opinion.

    Fedor is just too sexy,its as impossible to be sexier than him,than it is to beat him in his prime.

    Wow this might be closer than I thought. I thought Royce/Saku was going to be a runaway winner, but I guess not.

    Barnett was the biggest threat for Fedor at that time.

    "Iconic", well, that's probably like the most famous, known, or significant.

    I've been on this site for like 15 years, and out of the four candidates posted I can say with some confidence that Fedor - Arlovski is the most iconic.

    Anderson's? Nah, that's out. It's simply not a great photo.

    The Sakuraba one is visuably pleasing, interesting in the way Saku takes height.. And old school to add.

    Rory - Lawler is just bleed in its essence.

    It's between Fedor- Arlovski and Rory-Lawler to me.

    Fedor wins.

    Fedor walks away from Arlovski after knocking him out.

    Fedor always looks so awesome in photographs, what a beautiful human being he is
