No but they threw the term around like a hot potato when they were hyping up fighters that can't even take a punch....or throw one tbh.

Are we talking about guys like Kimbo Slice and Matt Serra perhaps?

Right, Brock Lesnar couldn't take a punch but he sure could give one. But remember there was a time he was the UFC Heavyweight Champion. Then again there are fighters who I think never should of had a belt.

Brock just didn't like getting hit. He could take a hit and in the same time he couldn't. Shame really.

Too bad Fedor called it quits, he still had a lot to offer imo.

When it comes to my favorite fighters, Fedor was never really in that category for me.
However I always did fully recognise his accomplishment and top p4p status, when he was in his prime.
I was never a big fan but will remember Fedor as one of the greatest legendary servants to MMA!!

When you're afraid of getting hit, you're not in the mix for being "the baddest man on the planet".

There have been quite a few men like that who have been UFC champion. Unfortunately this is match making and fighters aren't always objectively picked. Brock wasn't the first and he may not be the last.

I wonder what people would have said about Lesnar if he'd have went on to fight Henderson, Rizzo, Munson and Ishii after losing to Cain.

I don't dislike Fedor but his fans with their, "he can do no wrong, he's the Goat and if you disagree you're a troll" mentality really chaps my ass. The dude had an impressive run and since he always looked out of shape he has this huge following of unathletic wannabes that live vicariously though his pudgy posterior.

The guy had a good run from 04-09 I guess but it's littered with cans. He literally has about 6-8 good wins and lost three in a row to fighters that were supposedly levels below him. He fought guys in his prime that even the most hardcore fan would not recognize.

If he was so great he would have done what other fighters do, come to the UFC and fight the best.

Yes, Emelianenko has also some cans on his record, but still, who has a winning streak like him and 6-8 good wins in it¿ With 8 good wins he has as many good wins as Lesnar has fights. How many good wins have Velasquez or Dos Santos¿ The Monson, Ishii and Rizzo fight don't count. At that time nobody really could consider him to be the best after losing three in a row. So those were tune up fights at best to maybe climb up the ladder again which he has fallen down with his losses. And it's not only about winning, but also about attitude. Emelianenko was in trouble a couple of times, but always fought back. Lesnar on the other hand crumbled, once he got hit. So you may debate about how good Emelianenko really was. Lesnar on the other hand may be a top choice for "the biggest bully on the planet", but he certainly is not in the mix for being "the baddest man on the planet".
