MMA has evolved so much, I believe that anyone before 1993 would be too one dimensional to beat Fedor. With the amazing, all around fighters we have today, he is still walking through them.

Karelin might be able to beat him with brute strength, but i highly doubt it. Tyson might get a shot in and go from there.

The guys with the best chance, in chronological order:



William Miller (Australian bareknuckle champion and Greco-Roman top contender)

James J. Jeffries (World heavyweight champion, enough Greco skills to wrestle Roeber).

Frank Gotch/George Hackenschmidt/Joe Stecher (World wrestling champions)

Masahiko Kimura (Greatest Judoka of all time)

Jon Bluming (Top Kyokushinka and Judoka simultaneously)

I would not necessarily favor any of those men over Fedor, but they're the best I can think of. Strange, though...there has to be SOMEBODY, since humans have been fighting each other hand to hand for hundreds of years.

How about BJ Penn vs Mitsuyo Maeda?

Sensible response. But it is unlikely that we only found that answer in 1993-2007. Fighters have been mixing styles for quite some time...

i agree. Fedor makes wrestlers who atleast have some sub defense training tap no problem karelin would get subbed shortly after the take down unless he knocks him out on the slam. tyson no takedown defense, he would get taken down and then fedor does what he wants.

People with a game shot, but still heavy underdogs

Rolls Gracie, James Jefferies, maybe Anton Geesink

Its so difficult because some of these styles have evolved so much in the last 15 years and some have even been invented completley.

If it is an MMA fight i honestly don't see who could beat him. Which is crazy.............when you think about it....that he is the toughest and greatest fighter, the world has ever seen.
