    “If you think about it, when Joanna came out and fought Carla [Esparza] and beat Carla, that’s the same Joanna that fought Rose. She hasn’t advanced. She’s the same fighter. She hasn’t gotten better. Only thing is she’s gotten in better shape. She’s like Fedor. Fedor came out and killed everybody and no one could handle him for years and years and then eventually everyone caught up and figured him out, because Fedor didn’t get any better. He stayed exactly where he was, and eventually everyone figured him out. Joanna hasn’t gotten better, she’s gotten more in shape. That’s it.”

    Fuck's sake.

    Why does everyone that speaks about Fedor's career have to pick one end of the spectrum or the other. He either stayed in his prime and lost because people got better, or his prime ended when Pride folded.

    When one Fedor closes, another Fedor opens

    And then there's guys like Pat Barry who weren't very good and never got better.

    I didn't read the article, but you would think he would say something along the lines of how talented his girlfriend Rose has gotten, instead of saying it's because Joanna hasn't gotten better.

    This is wrong. And bad. There should be a new, stronger word for this. Like badwrong, or badong. Yes, this is badong.

    it's true if you willing to accept the fact.fedor is not some magical entity that cannot be beaten,as a young sport like mma is getting older and evolving, better fighters will rise. but obviously sherdog fedorlist wont agree with anyone even a profession fighter like pat barry.JJ fight almost the same in the rematch, he didnt evolve or improve his game like rose.
    but this apply to every ufc or mma fighter, the sport is constantly evolving because its very young

    What? And yeah Joanna did do a hell of a lot differently in the rematch and has changed as champ she just hasn't needed to show radical improvement. Her striking style as a whole has changed to being way less Muay Thai and much more Dutch Kickboxing for a start.

    I don't see the comparison, Fedor got old, thats all. If he was still in his athletic prime he wouldn't be losing to some of the guys he's lost to lately.

    This doesn't even make sense lol. If anything, his skills decreased, everyone didn't catch up. Fedor used to be very well rounded, later he turned into a head hunter. The HWs today are way worse than the HWs in the ufc and Pride back in 2003 and around that time period. The #2 HW in the ufc just said he doesn't even know how to do a takedown lol. Heck, several of the guys still around in the top 10 are guys from back in that time period. They are still on top 15 years later. Shows how garbage the HW division in the ufc is right now. What other weight class still has guys hanging around from 15 years ago at the top?

    the only things that change is that she has gotten stronger and faster. JJ didnt even change her gameplan , she is still try to distance fight rose instead of in fighting her
