    67 matches professional mma matches at HW.
    14 professional kickboxing matches.

    Name one person who could have been in the ring against the same guys, same number of times, accross so many years and be alive to tell the story.

    Fedor has 46 matches and has been fighting shit competition for years in comparison. He would hardly be able to put two words together with the amount of CTE if he fought the same guys.

    He’s remarkably clear headed for a guy who has a time-share in the shadow realm.

    Igor Vovchanchyn dwarfs those numbers and competed for over a decade less.

    The two even fought, but Reem won with a quick guillotine. Kind of a let-down for what people expected to be a barn-burner.

    You coulda just said one of the toughest guys in mma ever. Saying one of the toughest humans ever out of the 110 billion people just sounds stupid.

    He's one of the most stubborn motherfuckers in the world. He just keeps going at it. A lot o mental fortitude in that guy.

    Igor doesn’t get the respect that he’s due, the guys was a HW KO machine, he was insanely undersized, as a 5 and a half foot spark plug.

    If you're going to count Alistair's kickboxing bouts, why not count Fedor's combat Sambo bouts?
    Fedor has had plenty of those, against top notch competition too.

    No need to trash Fedor to elevate Overeem... who, need I remind you people, has tapped to strikes, so he can't really be all that tough now, can he? <{hughesimpress}>
    THE SHAAAAAME
