    When exactly did he stop being in his prime then?
    Serious question bc he lost to Doom nearly 11 years ago and the fight before that was the rogers ko win that everyone loves to whore out when speaking of fedor.

    He was the second most unbeatable fighter I've seen.

    He was put in tough spots in a lot of fights, but always came back and destroyed.

    Khabib never really even met resistance.

    Nobody ever was unbeatable. He just didn't get beat during that timeframe, doesn't mean it was impossible to have happened.

    I'll never forget watching this dude get seismic tossed on his neck by a freak athlete and then making him scream in pain from a kimura 30 seconds later

    There isn't a human being in history I'd favor to beat purime Fedor in a fight

    This site and many others have done polls on who was greatest HW in mma. Fedor has always been 1st. Of course not everyone going to agree but the majority does.

    I'm a fan of all three but Fedor, Anderson and GSP in their primes wouldn't be champions in the present day. The sport has evolved and their skills aren't anything special compared to the new breed.

    theres a lot of propaganda and only the most hardcore fans frequent these sites. weve seen the docs and the highlights and the fights. he was great.

    honestly, the truth for me is that pride and the UFC are so far apart from each other. more so than we probably give it credit for, almost to the point of being kind of a different sport. different environment, different match making, different rules, different scoring, different round times. i mean vastly different when you really get into the nitty gritty of it. not to mention the training and practices changing so much in the last 20 years, its very hard to compare guys from now to guys from back then. youll be able to say the same thing in another 10-20 years about a guy like stipe and the future champ, as well.

    the exponential growth in a sport like this happens so fast. its so young. lets just appreciate what weve seen and what were seeing. i love combat!

    Did prime Fedor happen to coincidentally end at the same time he went to Strikeforce and almost got Ko’d by Brett Rodgers and took 3 straight L’s?

    i kinda agree, but the current hw division seems to be about as shallow as it's ever been... and one-dimensional punchers are top contenders. so... no.

    They were scheduled to fight after Mirko won the GP but it fell through b/c Mirko was dealing with the foot injuries and would sign with the UFC shortly after. PRIDE 33 ideally should've had the rematch as it's final show but it wasn't meant to be
