Big nog is one of the best BJJ guys so being in his guard would be alittle scary to any fighter

Ballsy is lowering your guard hand to a kicker. If you look at the Fedor/Crocop fight, the strategies are flawless. From the bell he counter pressures Crocop who's kicks require distance and closes in. He takes an aggressive approach to offset Crocops stalker style. Normally Fedor conserves energy for best use but in Crocop's case it was pressure all the way.

Fedor is a cautious fighter for one simple reason. He has been caught. He understands that when fighting a guy 220+ you run the risk on every shot you take of getting KTFO, and thus he proceeds as needed to neutralize that danger in whatever method he deems necessary. In the case of Cro Cop the best defense was an in your face offense, and in most other cases the best defense is to proceed normally. In the case of Nog, the best defense is to get on top and ground n pound from a crouch position, which is Fedor's biggest strength. Being a well versed submission fighter, doing this was not a huge risk when you consider how deadly he is on top.

You know Fedor and now you are at one with the Universe. Welcome to the Fedorite brotherhood :-)

Yeah do you understand at that point in time Nogs guard was probably considered the most dangerous place to be in all mma? Of course sitting in Nogs guard for 2 whole fights is ballsy. Theres just no other way to put it. What hes done to Nog has been simply amazing. Thats why hes god.

Fedor is uasually cautious... for about the first 15 seconds where he analyzes his target and moves in for the kill

I actually have a properly translated interview, When Fedor was asked about how he negotiates his moves he said that everything is at the moment. What he meant by that was that he doesn't analyze on the basis of prospective outcomes. He either responds to openings as they present themselves or he prods for them to appear. He's like a bear. He instinctually bats you around with his paws, testing your weaknesses or strenghts before going in for the kill.

I think he's always calm. Like he will go in there and bang and when he realizes that these guys may KO him he calmly takes them down and calmly submits them.

I think he is more an intelligent fighter than a cautious one.
I hated when people were saying stuff like he was giving people chances, like against Mark Hunt, playing with them..or something. ''Yeah, I'll let him put me in an americana or two, what have I got to lose?''
