To be the best in the world

Posted 12-28-2009 at 08:17 AM by

What does it take to be the best in the world? Do you have to be an exciting fighter? Do you have to have a flawless record? Do you have to appeal to the fans around the world? I don't believe so. To be considered the best fighter in the world, a fighter must constantly prove that he or she is still the best fighter in the world. It is not a lifelong title.

Many fans believe that Fedor Emelianenko is the best pound for pound fighter in the world. They justify him fighting in Strikeforce by saying that he has already fought the best of the best in the past. Although this may be true, it proves nothing other than the fact that he was the best back then. To be legitimately considered the best in the world today, he must face the best fighters in the world today.

There is no doubting Fedor's amazing abilities as a fighter. But as all fighters do, Fedir will age, and he will begin to slow down. The only way to truly see where a fighter is at is to see them face the best of the best. Fedor is very possibly the best fighter in the world. It just needs to be proven time and time again.

Saying that Fedor Emelianenko is the best in the world because he has beaten top fighters in the past is like saying that the Wachington Redskins are the best team in football because they won a few superbowls in the past. The best sports teams are decided every year. They do not have title's like this. They must prove year after year that they are the top team. Fighters must do the same.

    Fedor imo is one of the best in the world and the best HW..

    I wish he'd sign with the UFC in 2010/2011 and clear the UFC HW division just to shut down his critics. I still have hopes.

    You don't think 2011 would be too late to clean that division out though?

    I think Fedor would be a bit too aged by then. I mean another full year (3-4 fights) and then the UFC? I think LEsnars skills after this year will be too great. It SOOOOOOO hard for me to say that, I still love Fedor and HATE Lesnar but I mean common, its only reality.

    I do agree that Fedor is still up there, BUT I do think that it will be hard for him to stay on top due to the fact that most top fighters are either in the UFC, or on their way to the UFC. I just think that if he doesn't fight the top HW fighters that are in the UFC, his stock will begin to drop.
