    I've seen a lot of people call Fedor nothing but a can crusher, unless you're a total n00b, you'll know these facts and why Fedor is considered the undispited GREATEST OF ALL TIME.

    http://forums.sherdog.com/forums/f2/fighters-quotes-about-fedor-1054990/

    Notable wins:

    Former UFC HW Champions:
    -Mark Coleman
    -Kevin Randleman
    -Tim Sylvia
    -Andrei Arlovski
    -Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

    Former K1 Champions:
    -Mark Hunt
    -Mirko Crocop
    -Semmy Schilt

    Former Olympians:
    -Matt Lindland
    -Naoya Ogawa


    There's nobody else in this game that has defeated as many champions of various disciplines as Fedor. Even the top p4p fighters list Fedor as their #1 (Cain, Aldo, Barao, etc.)
    There's really no argument unless you're a hater.

    Fighting former champs means nothing, fighting top ranked opponents means much more.

    GSP and Anderson trump Fedor with ranked wins, which is the most important stat.

    All of those guys listed were ranked at the time in the top 10, with the exception of Lindland and Ogawa.

    Yes.... Fedor, IMHO, is one of the GOAT. I really think he would beat JBJ at 205 IF
    he was in the UFC.....and IF he could make the weight. Awaiting SH*^ storm.

    Rankings aren't subjective at all...

    BTW watch their fights...Anderson is the biggest can crusher of the three and GSP had the stiffest competition

    Fedor had a combo of cans and contenders but one thing stands out for him...during his run he absolutely dominated them all

    Oh jeez here we go again.

    fedor is a great fighter but far from the best.

    He has only won once in a cage.

    When Zuffa bought SF, Fedor ducked and made excuses.

    Fedor is GOAT of Pride but thats about it. Silly huggers.

    That's definitely disputed.

    He's not on GSP's level, and even Anderson might be ahead of him.

    More meaningless stuff...

    Both Anderson and GSP had far tougher strength of schedules than Fedor did. If Fedor fought as many top fighters on a consistent basis he would have probably lost in his prime.

    The fact that he fought some guys who weighed much heavier than him is impressive enough while Jon Jons has the luxury of fighting smaller guys all the time is not. GSP can't finish a fight. Only Anderson has a legitimate claim to the #1 GOAT fighter title other than Fedor but the fact that he got beat by cans in his near prime kind of brings him down a notch.

    Cain, JDS, Werdum, Aldo, and Barao think otherwise...

    Tougher?
    Flying to Japan and fighting guys 20 pounds heavier than you on a regular? Kicks and knees to downed opponents? 10 minute first rounds?
    Yeah, ok..
