    Both guys in their prime and one of the most skilled guys ever.

    Cro Cop had no chance man ... Fedor read him like a book.

    lol, no. It was a good fight, and the most anticipated in MMA history (IMO), but I've seen much more exciting fights. I think Shogun vs. Little Nog I was a better fight.

    I prefer his initial scrap with Nog but no HW fight has had as much hype as Fedor/Cro Cop. As for "best" fight ever...no not even close. Probably not even Top 25.

    Fedor literally made a name for himself taking on two of the world's greatest fighters, engaging them in their absolute strengths, and utlimately walking through them.

    It was the gold standard for HW MMA. I wouldnt say the best MMA fight EVER across all divisions though.

    That fight will always hold a special place in my heart. But.... It's definitely not the greatest fight of all time. Not even close..... Most hyped for MMA loyalists? Sure...

    Fedor spent 80% of the fight in Cro-Cop’s guard doing ground and pound. I’m a stand up guy so I wasn’t particularly impressed as far as excitement. Both are beasts but wasn’t some ‘wow’ fight.

    Absolutely.

    Also my favourite MMA fight of all time.

    Followed by Shogun vs Machida 1 and Gus vs Jones 1.

    Great, dominance performance by Fedor, but those fights were total sleep fests.

    I think both of those are overrated.

    Ninja Rua vs. Mario Sperry.

    now that’s an action packed fight

    Interesting. Back when I first started coming on this board, (08 09ish)this was hands down the best fight of all time, it would of been a redundant question.

    I would say that it was probably the most anticipated and most iconic fight ever but the fight itself wasn't the greatest , I think that Crocop did more psychical damage but Fedor controlled perfectly the fight and won.
     
  16. No and even for a prestige factor where it has been number one since it finally happened, it's about to be surpassed by tony vs khabib

  18. You will learn the long way I suppose. Don't worry 95% of sherdog is just as lost
