Both guys in their prime and one of the most skilled guys ever.
Mirko Vs big Nog
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.
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.
Most epic intro movie.
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.
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
Tony is almost 37 years old
You will learn the long way I suppose. Don't worry 95% of sherdog is just as lost
Fedor wasn’t in that fight
