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.
