    I found an excellent highlight clip of the great Fedor Emelianenko, and thought to share it.

    This guy at his best was really like a goddamn combine harvester, mowing down the chaff in his way:

    1.23 in... damn, young Fedor was such a tank.

    In his prime, EVERYBODY across ALL combat sports Agreed that Fedor was the man, period.

    You will never see a HW that good again.

    Can you imagine if Fedor went to a real camp instead of that rinky dinky operation where he had elite/modern training equipment, sports recovery science, coaches, training partners, etc? The guy accomplished everything he did with his scumbag brother as his best training partner, although to be fair he was very good for a short period of time.

    Fedor probably would have ended up killing somebody.

    Prime Fedor was the most skilled and quickest HW we've seen to date imo.

    He was really explosive. You wouldn't think he was that explosive just by looking at him. He looked like a sleepy bear.

    Fedor was something else man. It was a real treat to watch his fights live, they were always extremely entertaining and high on drama. I remember when he came out of nowhere and smashed up Big Nog to win the Pride HW title...great memories.
