Silva works out more/smarter and has better genetics. Silva also has more of a desire to fight imo. I think Fedor's been phoning it in for a while.

Shit is it really that hard to work out?

The issue is the sport has evolved past Fedor. He was number 1 before Anderson was even champion.

Age isn't the issue per se, it is the length of his fight career and damage taken. But even this is not the biggest issue for Fedor, the issue is the sport has moved on in and he's in the most evolving division.

Its says that they are 2 different people who's bodies react differently to getting Old , Anderson seems to age like wine tastes bad to start with but gets better with age, well as Fedor is like a beer great for while but goes flat over time

LOL Fedor was Rings champion is 02 and Pride in 03 not much further apart.

Anderson is a great fighter and seems to be more motivated and have sharper skills now then when he was younger and more reckless.

I think Fedor has a different persona to Silva , Fedor accomplished everything and seems to have lost that spark , well as Silva has accomplished everything most fighters want yet his arrogance motivates him to become even more accomplished.

the HWs arent the most evolving division that honour goes to the lighter weight classes due their depth..And I dont want to hear anything about "well fedor has taken more damage" "or hes been fighting for so long" Since the fall of pride hes been avg 1 fight per year..That should be beneficial to his ageing body not a detriment

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Fedor didn't train BJJ because he thinks Sambo is the same thing except better. He got subbed by Werdum because he didn't respect BJJ or understand how much better Werdum was at it than Nog. Bigfoot beat him because he is huge and good at BJJ and Fedor had no answer for his top game. You see the same stuff happen with a lot of Judo players who don't understand that their sport veering away from submissions in favor of takedowns makes them vulnerable.

Anderson didn't have a ground game and worked really hard at his BJJ to become a real threat to other blackbelts off his back and continues to refine multiple striking styles.
