And Carwin would beat Fedor? Mir would beat Fedor? How the hell would either of them do that?

If I hear one more time that Mir is a world class, top 10 BJJ guy in the world I will scream. Mir would get destroyed in the stand up, his weak TDD would be exploited, and he'd be either tapped out or submitted.

Carwin would... be a can. He's really impressive and I see him winning by TKO against Lesnar in the 2nd-3rd round. But Lesnar has no head movement, a weak chin, and no KO power in his hands. And Carwin would get outclassed against Fedor, he's simply too green right now. Let him beat Lesnar, defend the belt a few times, really show if his TDD defense has improved in the Lesnar fight, and we'll talk.


And Fedor's punches aren't "looping." His hit percentage speaks for itself (100% landed flush in the Sylvia for the example). Read his book, understand his striking, watch his fights, then say his striking is anything but technical. This is a man who's been outstriking the best strikers for years.

And before anyone starts this UFC has the best HW division joke... who in the UFC HW division has great technical striking? Arlovski used to, you could sort of pretend like Kongo does, a few of them have KO power... but who has the head movement, power in both hands, exceptionally fast jabs and uppercuts like the Russian does? And amazing striking from the clinch? Not to mention he's got strong, quick headkicks and leg kicks. Stylistically nobody matches up well with him, and that's why he's the best.

His footwork isn't perfect like Lyoto's, definitely true. In his book he doesn't even address footwork besides stance and switchsteps. Who knows why this is, maybe he needs to take some ballet or something. But you can see in that video, his angles are amazing and his speed is unbelievable, offensively and defensively.

He's the one man who's nuts are big enough for us all to swing from.

Mousasi would destroy Mir on the ground. Fedor would destroy Mousasi. I hate MMA math, I'm just sayin'.
Whats Fedor's book called?

Fedor has good footwork - though at the same time it's very rare for him to be cautious. He also has very good head movement s many slo-mo's of him verse AA has proven.

Fedor vs. Aleks sparring. Watch Fedor's head movement and footwork. He moves like a LW.
I'm telling you guys, Fedor has seriously underrated boxing skills.

In the Arlovski fight you could see the same type of work he was putting in - and AA is no slouch in the punching game, neither is A Emelianenko. His methodology of boxing - which is not orthodox Western but instead uniquely Russian - may not look as pretty as Sugar Ray Robinson, but Fedor's very effective with it.


What cay you say? He's a machine.

One of the three books on my coffee table right now.

If I only I were home enough to actually show it off.

It doesn't hurt that bad. Just imagine, Kimbo Slice was doing it for years... Oh wait...

Fedor's head movement actually looks a bit careless in this vid. At 27-30 secs in he's just askin for a big knee, but then again, I guess that's what Arlovski thought before he got KO'd.

I think his style now is to be less cautious to push the pace. In Pride you'd get yellow carded if you were boring, and Fedor has always been aggressive. But now that he's so feared by so many fighters, I think he lets his guard down so people get confident and make the fight more interesting. eg.: arlovski.

Yeah. And who the f**k am I to question Fedor anyway! I must be punished...

Edit: Hahaha I got red for this!

...Fedor's headmovement is a little similiar to Anderson's how he avades, goes up & under. He looked great sparring with his brother. Nice straights to the body and that lunging jab at the end he tried on Arlovski but missed. He throws his whole body into that jab. Poor Alexander was getting lit up...Big brother was taking it to little brother...
