A regional level fighter could have beaten the versions "UFC champs" that Fedor fought.

Literally. Look at the dudes this guy beat? Randleman?

The guy lost to Ron Waterman in his very next fight...Randleman was never good, he won the UFC title at a time the UFC had no good HWs and was then exposed for the brutally one dimensional undersized fighter he was.

He also beat 40 year old Coleman who had already faded into irrelevancy, a fat ass Tim Sylvia who would shortly after be knocked out by an equally fat and washed up professional boxer and a regional bum in Abe Wagner.


It'd be like Anderson Silva fighting Dave Menne in some random org in the middle of nowhere and people acting like it wasn't a the majority of Fedor's career.

Maybe in your own fairy world feasting on clearly past their prime fighters is worthy of accolades, but to anyone who seriously follows combat sports, it's a joke.

Fedor was essentially the Joe Calzaghe of MMA.
