I could think of meaner words than just "bastard" when someone just ktfo your brother. He's the most humble respectful fighting in this sport.

just wondering why is it that when some posters on here point out these same gaps and say fedor's human like any other fighter, they get typical "fedor hater" or the "u never watched pride" insult thrown at them?

the GREATEST and most disrespected...

fyp

it's because too many think a differing and less spectatular opinion on a legend is insulting them personally and take it much too serious. If everybody just agreed about every fighter there would be no forum.

Probably because it's so hard to differentiate between intelligent, knowledgeable MMA enthusiasts and LESNAR IS NUMBERRR ONE UFC ROOLZ kinda people.

The biggest hole in Fedor's game IMO (and I'm a pretty big fan/enthusiast) is he never feels out opponents enough or effectively enough.

Watch the Arlovski or the Rogers fight. The first 2 minutes or so before he gets their reach and rhythm is so iffy. If he ever loses in the future before he retires, it's to a dynamic striker in the first two minutes before he catches their rhythm and distance.

Fedor, if you're reading this right now, my king, just know that I have a large yard and a hill and it gets snowy in the winter...so basically move in with me, it'll be just like training in Russia. BTW..... <3

Im the Russian and the things that Fedor said we much meaner than "bastard" (literally it was closer to "fu**ed in the mouth" and "bitch").

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

I LOVE that video. What a totally epic build up for the Crocop fight.


Also I always thought he was yelling at his brother in that video. He yells at him earlier for messin' up.


Man Aleks looks different in his fight against Crocop. His standup has improved about a 10000x since then, haha.
