Coldcall, Ask Randy Couture and Andrei Arlovski if Ricco was a mediocre fighter in his hey day?

Randy got better with age we all know that as far as Arlovski goes..you guys got a point there but all in all the division was never loaded with competition Randy and Arlovski certainly are but they are also top tier guys at this point or at least cosidered and Ricco aint...thats my point plus those wins against Randy and Arlovski dont make him dominant

Fedor's demolition of Silvia was the most impressive, but then again expected that.

Which insinuated that Ricco was never good. By your standards only Anderson, BJ, GSP, Fedor, and Nog are good fighters.

Ricco used to be really good, he made Big Nog tap at ADCC one year. I am going with Mir's only because he broke Sylvia's arm if he didn't I would definately go with Fedor.

Edit: Here is the link to where Ricco makes Big Nog tap http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyvWTlTKwys

Isn't it 'little' Nog though ?

Im more impressed with Fedor's win here, like some already said his win was a given -> so i see it not as lucky win or coincidence, Fedor actually planned this thing and executed perfectly, he could've easily won by stoppage here.

I'm going to go with Fedor, too. Here's why:

1. Mir's was impressive... he did what he does, take some punishment, then submit. Actually breaking the arm was a bonus. Props for having the wherewithal to pul out the slick sub while being beaten on... but still, he was getting beaten on.

2. Arlovski's... I think that Tim was gun-shy about subs. He even said so in the interview afterwards. Solid win, still.

3. Fedor... the dude just dominated Arlovski. Didn't even give him a chance. No "surviving damage" to get a sub, no gunshy Tim, he just came out and kicked Tim's trash, plain and simple. The kind of domination Tim would probably only expect from an ugly chick in leather boots with chains and whips.

Defecato, ergo sum.


Leading the Thiago Silva bandwagon
