I am new to MMA and have just recently heard of Fedor. A guy at school gave me a DVD with about 8 of his fights on it.
I have been thinking of starting to train in some kind of Martial Art, but at this point Im just a fan thats why I have questions?
Do you people think Fedor wins because of having a lot of Martial Arts techniques and training or just because he is naturally a tough guy? His fights seem to me to be won with brutality. He throws basic punches and likes to take people down and just reign down blows. Its almost like he goes in there to destroy with no fight plan and no fancy moves. He survived a suplex by Ken Randleman that would have killed or crippled most people. He seemed unphased and went almost immediatley into an armlock. It was one of the most amazing things Ive ever seen. He beat Minotauro with a barrage after barrage while in the guard. Why is he the only fighter that can strike so effectively in the guard?
I guess what Im trying to ask is, can someone train to be a Fedor? Or do you have to be born Fedor? I would like to take up Martial Arts next year when I graduate highschool and move out on my own, and was just curious if I could train and become as tough as Fedor?
