    Fedor was definitely on the down slide around this time and Cormier was destroying the entire SF heavyweight roster one by one, including a guy who finished Fedor.

    So how do you think this match up would have gone down? I'm a big Fedor fan and I have much respect and awe for his career but even in 2010 he wasn't the same terminator he was in Pride. I'd have to go with DC by UD.

    Thoughts, my homies?

    Fedor was already in clear physical decline by then, but his experience would probably still be enough for him to win the fight.

    look how the both fought against Bigfoot...

    Bigfoot had fedor in the mount most of the fight...

    Cormier had no respect for Bigfoot's wrestling...




    I know it's MMA maths but it still need to be taken into account.

    No it doesn't. Bigfoot and Fedor fight completely different. DC/Fedor is a completely different fight to say the least.

    I think it's 50/50. Fedor either wins by tko or DC wins by boring decision.

    Fedor had mount and gave it up willingly.

    Pride Fedor would never have done that.

    Fedor had problems with weight and height advantage of Antonio Silva. I think he would fight much better against DC. He always fought bigger and bigger guys. He would outbox DC and and he could even take chances for submisson from his back. But I dont see this fight going too often on the ground. Fedor by close decision.

    Look at how they both fought Jeff Monson. Fedor dropped him multiple times and broke his leg, Cormier just kind of beat on him. Cormier would have won at that time because Fedor was in swinging like a bar room brawler mode at the time for whatever reason. Prime Fedor or Fedor in his last 3 fights I would give the edge to Fedor.

    You can see the difference gameplanning and picking his punches made even during the Henderson fight. When the Henderson match first started he came out swinging like he did against Bigfoot and didn't land much but towards the end, when they got off of the cage he stopped, slowed himself down and looked for a real combo for the first time. The very first combo he threw he dropped Henderson, then he went back to crazy mode. In his last 3 fights he fought like he did against Henderson during the time he dropped him. During those fights he trained with Peter Teijsse (Kickboxing) and Hans Kruse (Fitness Coach) in Holland.

    Interesting.

    I see Fedor having the edge on the feets, and Cormier in the wresting obviously.

    If Cormier would have taken Fedor down, I'm curious to know if he would have been able to escape the armbars.

    In before everyone says Fedor was going to win the fight in the next round.

    Fedor 2010 would've been a breeze for Cormier.

    DC vs PRIDE Fedor would be more interesting.

    Fedor - no question.

    DC has a strong tendency to fight safe against "harder" (name brand) opponents, thus the dec over Warmaster eventhough he dominated and could have finished and the stinkers over Mir and Nelson, I also expect him to dec Hendo in order to keep maximally safe from the H-bomb. That being said Fedor is one of the mentally strongest fighters ever. You just can

    Fedor would put him through the meatgrinder via cardio and speed.

    Fedor would have the big edge in Sambo though so the clinch is a wash.
