Fedor was not a 'wild brawler' at all IMO, his feints were superb, as was his timing.

I was an unecessary criticizer. Easy to see things that weren't there

Now I appreciate the guy and really do feel like he's the best. IMO Royce,Silva,& Fedor all have cases but Fedor's is the strongest.

BTW, forgot about the Griffin fight in my post which was better than Andrei. Just enjoying Silva while I can along with Jones and GSP if he looks close to what he was before ACL injury. Great talents to the sport.

Fedor.

LOL at people acting like Fedor doesn't have anything on his resume past Big Bog and Cro Cop 9 (as if you even need that much more )

Mark Hunt, Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman, Andre Arlovski, Tim Sylvia, Gary Goodridge, unbeaten Brett Rogers, Ricardo Arona, Heath Herring, Semmy Schilt. Those guys were bad ass dudes.

Forgot about these names. Not sleeping on the others but these are the ones that stand out more to me. Think people forgot how great Fedor was the guys was running over people.

Fedor was a Glass Jawed Fraud and is massively overrated.

Anderson is easily the GOAT.

And how ****ed in the head does someone have to be to rank GSP ahead of Anderson?

Anderson Silva. I hated the guy but there is no one like him. Actually he is clear GOAT at this point.

Explain this then, you say he is the goat but has bad loses to average fighters at the start of his career and although he has gone on an excellent run now he has hardly beaten a great range of atg fighters.

Everyone can lose but that was almost a decade ago. Right now, there is not one fighter that I think can beat Silva outside of the massive HWs. You cant stand with the guy and 80% of the fighting is on its feet and He is more than quality on the ground.

He can only beat those who are in front of him and Hes beaten them in such convincing fashion that you can pretty much deduce other outcomes (pretty much the same with Floyd although Silva has faced better competition).

His Resume is better than that of Fedor who has not fought anyone since Crocop and Nog in a decision. Dont get me wrong Fedor is great but I think Silva has surpassed him and I like Fedor more than Silva.

I could care less for Silva and Ive been posting that for years here and I love Jon Jones (not lately) but even with this I have to be very ojective, Jones would get beaten up.

There will be a time that Silva will be impossible to take down, the guy keeps getting better and I'm quite shocked because this guy came from being tripped up by Lutter with his pinky to being amused by Bonnars (who is massive) TD attemps.

gsp has a better resume than silva, 2 hall of famers at their peak in penn and hughes(avenged his losses), so wherever silva is in at lists imo gsp is higher

He's beaten better fighters than Silva has by a mile Who on Silva's resume comes close to prime Cro Cop or Nog?

And **** the UFC.

Fedor has two career defining wins that no one can nitpick. He beat Prime Nog and Crocop at the peak of their careers. Two future HoFers and ATGs.

Anderson has no career defining wins, but his title reign is very impressive, but so was Fedors. He was undefeated for nearly a decade and he was truly the undisputed HW champion.

Fedor clearly, but Anderson has more than a chance to take it. If he fights and beats Jon Jones that will surely cement his spot.
