Fedor is the greatest of all time

  

stickapple - Yeah cuz beating Nog, Crocop and a bunch of old skool/japanese/freakshow/gatekeeper/can/MW/LHW/cans totoally proves your the best.

At this point the only thing separating Fedor and Frank Mir is that Mir actually stopped Nog and Crocop and took on harder competition throughout his career without ducking fights.


trololololol.

 I cannot see how he did not break his neck.  The fact that he survived it, forget that he won, just that he survived it is amazing.  

Just cause Gretsky isn't the best hockey player today, doesn't mean he's not the GOAT. Phone Post

PRIDE wasn't the best while Fedor was champ? And then after PRIDE he destroyed everyone he "ducked" while he was in PRIDE. Now he gets caught in a triangle early in the 1st to a world class BJJ BB and he's all a myth? You have one sad life buddy. Go outside, it's actually not that scary Phone Post

Lol your like talking to a child, hope you find some purpose in life. Phone Post

lol @ insulting somebody because you don't have an argument and then calling that person childish.

Another victim of irony.

Who is your GOAT

I've already said Anderson, Hughes, and GSP are all more qualified... largely because they never handpicked their opponents and took a vacation halfway through their careers and dominated regardless.


 Keep in mind this thread is about the greatest heavyweight of all time.  There isn't a chance in the world that any of those mentioned are more qualified that Cain Valesquez, let alone Fedor. 

Stickapple - Let me start off by saying that I completely agree with the OP, although some points are hard to admit since I'm a huge Fedor fan.  He may not be #1 right now, but you cannot deny what he has accomplished.



I think the reason people are upset with you is you come off as someone just attacking a fighter for no reason other than disagreeing with the OP's OPINION.  You don't have to agree with him, or even like Fedor, but there is no reason to bash fighters.  You could've just said "I disagree.  Personally, I think _____ is the GOAT".



Personally, I hate using terms like P4P/Goat.  I just replace them with "my favorite fighter"....makes it hard for people to argue with you or even insult you (without coming off as a POS).



Sorry for the mini FRAT...just wanted my first post to count :)

Fuckin' triple 10ers! ;) Phone Post

At the moment, Fedor is the greatest of all time. With that being said, GSP and Anderson Silva are hot on his trails for that title and when it's all said and done they both have a chance to claim that title. What is frustrating is that Fedor had (has) a chance to cement his legacy as the best if he would face the tip heavyweights out there today. It seems like he has no intentions of doing that and therefore his placement at the top of the mma landscape is very much compromised and he will eventually fall, sooner than later. Phone Post

As far as greatest heavyweight of all time, Fedor is but we have such a great crop of heavyweights right now that if someone distances themselves from the pack, they may well be considered the greatest a few years from now. Phone Post

 Lots of good points, thanks for the comments.

Imagine that... calling a guy who is not even the champ, and actively ducking fights in his own tier 2 league the GOAT?

What a slap in the face to MMA.

Anderson, Georges and Hughes are far more qualified for GOAT status.

GOAT's don't handpick their fights and stop facing the best halfway through their prime. Sorry.

I happen to think he will be known, and rightfully so, as the best fighter of all time. However that doesn't mean that he is top right now. That goes to either Overeem or Brock in my opinion.

Perspective.
