He proved that MMA was not a sport so much as it is overall an art. Though later in his career he let his management get their way in terms of money. Regardless he will always be remembered as a legend.

Not much else to say that has already been said.

I remember first watching RINGS and seeing this beast with no emotion, calculated and relentless.

Fast forward to PRIDE, it was a fans dream to watch someone like the 'Last Emperor' compete with such explosive power, skill and determination.

He always brought it, never putting on a boring fight. He is a pioneer, legend and generally humble human which brought an art form into MMA.

Here's to one of my fav fighters, you'll not only go down as one of, if not the best HW of all time... BUT potentially one of the GOAT fighters to grace our sport.

He still looked pretty spectacular in his Affliction fight I think. Though he started to show how human he was against Arlovski. It went down hill when he once again looked human against Brett Rogers.

Yeah the Rogers fight was a rollercoaster ride for me. That knockout had me hopping up and down which rarely happens, that to me shows how special he was.

Well it's good that he finally called it a career before it ran it's course. The man has nothing left to prove. He's beat the best in the world and he is set for life.

I'll always have wished fedor fought overeem instead of werdum, and lost, then retired.

The way Fedor fought and the way he always went for the kill, sets him apart from almost everybody. That and his very impressive record.

I hate the ufc sentence "baddest man on the planet". But if there ever was one, Fedor got that title.

Fedor is not only a legend. He is THE LEGEND OF MMA.

I'm not sure he's exactly the Legend of MMA, that is very arguable. However, he is definately a legend to be sure up there. And I agree that the UFC did not copyright the term "Baddest Man on the Planet".
