Sucks I never got to really watch him live. I watched the Silva and Hendo fights but ehres a difference between watching Fedor walk out in SF and watching Fedor walk out in Pride. While I like to think "I'm watching the greatest of all time walk out right now" as Anderson heads to the ring, I'm not anticipating a complete war in the cage, and more so a master class. At all times your could fear a Fedor loss, which made his then GOAT title hang in the balance so much, making the antitpation of that walk out reach boiling point.
I hear you man, good points.

In an age of MMA where most people turn down fights and have crazy game plans, Fedor came out with bad intentions to fight and win... Every time!

He'll be greatly missed, it's too bad we didn't get to see him in the UFC. Other great matchups for him back in PRIDE/Affliction/Strikeforce would have been Barnett, Overeem, Cormier.

To this day, nothing quite gets me excited like watching a PRIDE event, it was a spectacle to behold.

I hate strategy fighting. I think you can adapt to other assets of your skillset, or you can have a gameplan which would be say Bigfoot Silva not taking Struve to the ground, but to change your whole style or pick fights around that style doesnt sit with me. Guys like Fedor would fight anyone because they felt that what they did inside the ring was enough. They didnt need to change everything because it was basically a match of your skillset Vs my skillset, and Fedor was just too good.

Well the problem with Fedor was that in his last three fights what had worked for him started to betray him. He'd taken out opponents before with his fighting style. Finally fighters started adapting.
