As per the title. Great nickname but what does it means.

Because no one will ever rule the HW division like that again, ever.

Why is Wanderlei Silva nicknamed The Axe Murderer when he ... nevermind.

Because he is the fuking last emperor. duh.

wasn't it because he was the final RINGS heavyweight champion,
therefore the "Last Emperor" of the fed?

Herring In A Fur Coat - Fedor hates that nickname for what it's worth...
Really??It ain't that surprising,I don't think I've seen him do more than raise his hand after knocking someone the fuck out!! Phone Post

He hates the nickname, he's said it a bunch of times, but not enough to put a stop to those awesome knockoff Affliction "Last Emperor" shirts.

Bobby Lupo - He hates the nickname, he's said it a bunch of times, but not enough to put a stop to those awesome knockoff Affliction "Last Emperor" shirts.

ruling cro-cop and nog ISN'T the hw division...
 

Japan and specifically Pride gave him that name. I don't know the reasons. Him being being Russian could have something to do with it. The name was used after becoming the Pride champ.

 i thought affliction came up with it for their events

He ruled the pride hw division wif empirical fisticuffs. Phone Post

It was at the time.

I suppose you'd have rather had Fedor in the UFC dominating Cabbage, Tank Abbot, Wes Sims, Frank Mir, Tim Sylvia, Gan Mcgee...

Get real...

UFC had ZERO HW division while Fedor was dominating PRIDE and Affliction.

That's why Tim Sylvia and Arlovski fought 3 times, because the UFC HW division was STACKED for the first decade of the 2000's.

"It was at the time. UFC had ZERO HW division while Fedor was dominating PRIDE and Affliction. "

I think what he meant is that if, say, JDS were to beat nobody but Werdum and Cain out of all the "great heavies" in the division, no one would say he "ruled the division". You have to beat all or a comfortable majority of the best guys, not just two of them -- even if those two are considered the next best.

Oh no wait, now that I checked back I can see you're right.

The UFC HW division was a murderers row...

Just look at these top 10 HW's Arlovski beat in order to get a title shot- Cabbage, Matyushenko (a LHW), and... IAN FREEMAN...

Oh man... then we look at who the Champion had to beat in order to defend that belt against Arlovski...

A win over Gan Mcgee where he juiced, a loss to Frank Mir, and a win over Wes Sims!

DAMN!

You're right though, Herring, Schilt, Coleman, Randleman, Big Nog, Cro Cop wouldn't stand a chance against Cabbage, Wes Sims, Gan Mcgee, and Ian Freeman...

Wait... how many of them were top 10 heavies who would give legitimacy to Fedors career?

Hilarious how people criticize Fedors opponents when the alternative in the UFC was laughable at best.

Even Dana White is ashamed of the Arlovski/Sylvia trilogy...
