    Totally accurate. I enjoyed the read. I also enjoyed the Fedor bit.

    Emelianenko = P4P GOAT
    A. Silva = P4P runner up

    fedor gets destroyed by Bigfoot and choked out by werdum and retires, after fighting somewhere in russia = P4P Goat!
    And A.Silva Moving up divisions on short notice, finishing all of his fights since UFC 112 = P4P runner up!

    BigFoot is all of that...he's the fighter who relies on his size more then any other fighter since Brock Lesnar

    His two best traits are due to his size...punching power is cuz of his mass...good top game is cuz of his mass

    In terms of skill he is way behind many of the HWs..its his size and luck that gets him by

    And I don't know whats more shocking...silva having a title shot or bleachers report making a good article

    His big, strong and slow. With an okay chin. People tend to overlook him because he looks a bit slow. And that's where they fall, by underestimating him. Not with Cain though. Cain is going to rip him a new one....Again.

    It was a pretty brutal assessment, but fairly accurate (and I like Bigfoot). Still, you can't argue with results. The dude has flaws but he's managed to get some pretty nice wins. It doesn't matter if its luck or skill, a finish is a finish.

    Also, an author loses credibility by still clinging the Fedor myth. Fedor's an MMA legend for sure, but the "#1 P4P" nonsense needs to be put to rest. He was great in his day, but the game passed him by.

    Fedor never cut weight to fight smaller men.

    At this point, IMO Fedor is still the P4P Goat. Anderson would easily surpass him by fighting for the LHW belt though.

    fedor was entertaining and a great fighter, but imo he isnt the goat or p4p1 you cant be p4p1 and goat spending half your career fighting cans in the shallowest division in mma in weak organizations.

    he last credible win was agaisnt mark coleman in 2006

    his last credible fight was agaisnt a MW (dan henderson) in 2011 which he lost, if anything that proves henderson has more claim to the p4p crown

    Ridiculous! He fought Hendo and lost haha, man as a Fedor fan i wouldn't mention too! What's worse than cutting weight to fight smaller man? Fight smaller men and lose at your natural weight! You just failed, Sir!

    I'm not saying that I'm absolutely right or that it's not debatable. I was merely stating my opinion.

    As someone said earlier, it isn't exactly fair to judge a fighter by the low points or the end of their career. By the same logic Anderson would have to be discounted for losing to WW's early in his career, which would be ridiculous.
  • zaksamezaksame Posts: 4,340Free
    Well it is very accurate except one problem ,it is flawed lol.
    It sounds like he is comparing Silva's flaws to much quicker divisions.This is the HW division where you can be slow as molasses and still everything is relevant.
    He also described BjPenn with that analogy,difference is Penn doesn't come out plodding with a leg kick,just a jab with never a follow up.There are lots of plodding fighters,especially at HW,Hunt ,Mir actually might as well name the whole division,only on rare occasion does someone like Cain come out aggressive and fast.I would say like 1 fight for every 30 at HW are just slow plodding fights,so BigFoot fits right in.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    still talking about FEDOR? lol
    The fact you're still hating one of the most dominating fighter in the MMA era its the proof of his greatness.

    If you know something about SPORTS there is a few man that simple define an era, a few examples,DORKS!

    1. Doctor Erving
    2. M. Jordan
    3. B. borg
    4. P. Sampras
    5. R. Marciano
    6. M. Ali
    7. Pele
    8. Maradona
    9. Messi

    if you dont know at least 7 of this 9 GOATS, please STFU!!!

    Bigfoot its someone in MMA because he passed over the GOAT.

    Most rational people agree that the Pride HW division was stronger than the UFC's during Fedor's prime.

    By comparing Lombard's streak to Emelianenko's you have insulted your own intelligence.

    yea i know its a bad comparison, but had lombard avoided the ufc and kept fighting there would be idiots on here claiming him as a possible P4P top fighter.

    fedor wasnt past his prime when he fought in strikeforce, he just spent a long time fighting 1 dimensional fighters and freak shows, he wasnt ready to fight the new breed of well rounded HWs, before even his pride wins were agaisnt 1 dimensional guys like coleman even if they were the best mma had to offer at that time fedor had a big advantage in being well rounded, it allowed him to find ways to win. But when the competition started to catch up fedor was no where to be seen until it was to late

    Nah.

    As someone said earlier the game changed and it passed Fedor by. As the author in the article said Fedor forget he had anything but his right hand in his last couple of fights.

    Fedor deserves his accolades for his era- who knows in years to come we may have a champion that surpasses Silva and people will argue that Silva didn't deserve his P4P status. It's the nature of sport

    Why the hate for one of the best fighters to ever walk this planet? Fedor always came to fight. He didn't hold on for dear life or throw spinning ****. He beat multiple UFC HW champions and he did it with ease.
