Wow, Fedor is a household name now to all these bandwagon jumping MMA posers.
Yes, he's a great fighter, Yes, he has a lot of wins.
However how many of those people are legit heavtweights???? how many are past there prime???? WHEN HAS FEDOR FOUGHT A TOP 5 HEAVYWEIGHT????
IF you legitamtly thought he looked good in that last fight with AA you are delusional. His hands wer down he didnt connect or throw that many punches.
True a win is a win.......but his next opponent is a bigger joke.
The Fedor of Pride was unstopable the Fedor of Affliction is not the same guy. He might as well be Kimbo Slice with all the "cans" he's fighting.

He's beat two of the Top 5 on that list...Barnett is ranked #2, so I guess JB is not that much of joke...Not to mention FE's beaten the #7 and #9 on the list too...Kinda fucks up your argument a little...
I never said he looked like the most impressive fighter I've ever seen in the 3 minutes we watched before he KO'd AA. So, you're also judging him based on only 3 minutes of fight, which doesn't say a whole lot. So, it's kinda like saying Fedor was losing before he won and therefore Fedor isn't that good! No shit, he's human? He can make mistakes? No... By that logic we could also point out that he was also losing to CroCop, Hong Man Choi, and Randleman, before he WON. It makes not sense to try and detract from his victory. He's a class act and a great ambassador for the sport.
The point is that Fedor finds a way to win regardless of how the fight is going, that's what's impressive. AA is a great fighter, but got KO'd..end of story.
And comparing Fedor to Kimbo says much about your MMA acumen. That's some funny shit right there...
At the end of the night this is all that really matters:
