Is Fedor a cautious fighter?

If you look closely at all his fights, Fedor knows what fight style he should be risking and what style he should not risk. Afterall, Fedor would lose if he took all fighters the same way. IMO, this is one of the main reasons Fedor has been virtually undefeated.

My Profile Picture shows Fedor with the UFC Championship Belt slung over his shoulder. I had to travel to the future to get this photo.

He also seems to fight on his opponents level(s). He stood with Cro Cop and went to the ground with Nogueira. These were choices he took on his own, especially playing the guard game with Nog. He seems to want to challenge himself in there, and to see him just briskly demolish his opponents is still amazing to watch.

Fedor challanges himself in training. Going into the guard with Nog was a safe zone. I particularly like to reference the Coleman fights. Fedor stalled the ground game as much as he could. This was not something he chose to challenge himself with but he knew that a good submission hold would get him the win.

Considering his insane grip strength, Nogueira's guard is never a safe zone.

Well if your going in a fight with Chuck liddell and your a Grappler your going to try to take it down because hes a Striker your betetr on the ground.. now if your Fighting Tito your going to wana stand because hes a Ground guy and you have a betetr chance at Stand up Fedor knows what the people are and hes so well rounded that it dont matter where he is stand up or ground hes going to find the right way to finish the fight.. thats what he does..

Not once was Fedor threatened by Nog's ground game. If I could sum up three words for these fights it would be "Brazilian Punching Bag"

Fedor's never been threatened by anyone except a big, Japanese wrestler with cement in his head. Of course, this doesn't disguise the fact that going into Nogueira's guard willfully was (Still is, actually) considered ballsy.
