    I wonder who the Russian mafia had money on in the fedor- werdum fight? I bet the odds were juicey.

    Frankly I don't think its very likely he will beat Cain. Anything is possible in a fight but Cain is not Travis Browne.

    If Werdum simply shot in after throwing combos instead of falling on his back to guard, he would've won the scorecard. I'm an Overeem fan and it still drive me crazy to believe he didn't do that and instead chose to fall back. He was winning the exchanges. Overeem covers up on the initial combo, waiting for a chance to counterstrike but the drop to guard always negated it. By doing a takedown attempt, it would've been seen as Werdum winning the exchanges and also racking up so offensive wrestling as well. Edgar did this to Penn in their first fight.

    Because he was old or because he isnt #2 HW of all time?

    Beat after their primes. No where near GOAT. And he has no chance against Cain.

    Really why is that?

    Fedor's laurels don't let you sleep at night? Hard to dream of Aldo and Anderson when they never were or would be the GOAT...

    Fedor 16 wins by submission. Werdum 9 wins by submission. When Fedor and Nog were in their prime, Werdum lost to Nog and was far too below par to fight the REAL GOAT.

    So genuinely...are you stupid or are you stupid?

    Yeah, lets just always say "X made Y submit to him" instead of "X submitted Y".

    Makes perfect sense.

    The win over cain would mean way more, only because cain is in the peak of his career it was very clear fedor and nog were not the same as they once were when he beat both of them.. nog more so then fedor

    This this this.

    Sometimes I think people didn't really watch that fight or they were so high on the Reem hype that didn't notice what was really happening.
    Werdum was winning most of the exchanges but he was determined to go get the fight to the ground. He could've won that fight rather easily IMO.

    On topic, I do think Werdum could be the HW GOAT if he beats Cain. He has an impressive record and its amazing how much he is still improving.

    Cain, JDS, Overeem etc. have all accomplished more in MMA.
    Being there from the start doesn't mean you're the greatest.

    Also, who cares about ''greatness''. I only care about who's best.
