Sure, but you can't take quality out of the equation.
Prime Fedor is the greatest fighter ever imo.
Cormier isn't a HW GOAT candidate imo (yet), but I like him a lot and his resume is outstanding. No disrespect.
His aura wasn't real. His aura wouldn't have protected DC from smashing him. His aura didn't protect Hendo and Bigfoot from smashing him
Yea and he was the first to beat Fedor hence profit, covert bragging I see what you did there and plenty will run with it cause Fedor has his hardcores.
Fedor is still the most sensational fighter I've ever witnessed. Has as many sub wins as tko/ko wins. The most complete fighter I've ever seen in my lifetime. This isn't really much of a debate for me.
And most importantly, he was a kill or be killed type
of fighter. The only MMA fighter to pull off the same aura as a Tyson fight. No other combat athletes do that to me.
You can apply that bs to any fighter that's ever lost.
Most UFC fighters were on steroids too.
Style wise, I think prime CroCop is a nightmare for Cormier.
But DC was champ post USADA
Sucks that we never got Fedor vs Barnett
I don't understand what you're trying to say. DC never tested positive and neither did Fedor. If anything Fedor faced stiffer competition because everyone he fought was juiced up.
Haha .. werdum beat fedor lost to stipe. What a shock he says fedors the best and stipe will win.
DC would beat werdum all day every day
You know who the real knowledgable mma fans on SD are when you see the comments in types of threads like this. Fedor is the goat. Not just hw goat but the absolute mma goat. It might be subjective but at the same time if you have that many people and fighters saying it, then it must mean something. Gsp who is second, doesn't get the same amount of votes for goat as Fedor in the real world.
Look .. its all speculation but dont think cro cop beats DC ...
Cormier is 40 and still the best HW on earth. Fedor was getting finished by MWs when he was what, 34?
They’re not comparable. DC>Fedor
Fedor may be regarded higher than DC, but I don't think he would be if DC wasn't so close with Cain. His resume and accomplishments outweigh DC's but I don't think that would be the case if DC stayed at hw. Fedor's legacy got lucky that Cain and DC are friends, and more importantly, that DC is loyal to his friends.
Then why doesn't he throw his own name in the mix like a lot of guys do? He certainly has a top 5 all time resume. I think he honestly thinks that and him saying the 10 years no loss thing, I would assume he was right up close while Fedor was on his streak. Just my opinion.
DC is more accomplished and would beat Fedor in Prime vs Prime.
