The game hasn't just passed Fedor by. Fedor has not adapted his style to fit his age. Fedor has always had technical shortcomings. Fedor had previously found a way to use his athletic gifts to overcome those shortcomings.
Im a massive Overeem nuthugger but he is a perfect example of the evolving fighter of today..
He went from a world class but by no means the best light heavyweight and with constant improving of not just skillset but strength and conditioning and strategies has turned into my eyes MMA premier striker and top 5 p4p fighter..
Where Fedor has stayed fedor..Same training methods, same routine and exactly same fighting style/gameplan...
