As a huge Ali fan I find it an insult that you compare Fedor to him

Ali was arguably the best ever in a sport that's been around for hundreds of years and took on everyone

Fedor is only arguably the best HW of his era, which is the weakest division in MMA in a sport that's only been around for 20 years

Nobody can be compared to Ali for any reason.

He transcended sports. Easily the most famous athlete alive. Maybe Michael Jordan has surpassed him recently, but the time of Ali's retirement, he was a hero from the suburbs of the Midwest to the slums of Botswana.

My next door neighbor doesn't even know who Fedor is.

Anderson is for sure a legend no way will I say anything less, but for me? The Mohammed Ali of MMA is Fedor :$

Different opinions, isn't bad at all



sometimes we say gr8 rather than "GREAT" not a TYPO though
It's not an opinion. Fedor and Ali have almost zero in common.

While, you're correct that Ali is very famous he was never a universal hero, especially when he was an active fighter. Just as many hated him as loved him.

I agree, Ali was one of the most known faces in all of sports history, there would be places in Africa that dont even know MMA exist and know all of Ali's quotes.

And like posted above he changed a entire sport thats had over millions of fighters in, and he is THEE face of all Legendary sports figures.

Fedor is only known by Russians, Japs, and MMA Fans. Not even some of my family knows 1 thing about Fedor.

Pretty much i cant find one person that doesn't know Ali and i prob cant find 1 person around me at work that even heard of Fedor lol

I can find people who don't know a damn thing about Ali or who he is...hell, I'd suspect the young generations of now won't know a damn thing about Ali especially with boxing's decline in popularity.

And sorry MachidaKarate, your family member isn't a good representation of the rest of the world. :P

I could care less about Ali or Fedor TBH. In a few weeks I'll never think twice about this strikeforce event but hey...it's a fresh and interesting topic right now.

Yeah i thought my family did represent the whole world DAMN....

LOL wow dude i was just making a point not saying that its prof because some of my family doesn't know like seriously....

And i dont know what planet u live on, or where u come from, but if i asked ANYONE if they knew who Ali was, they would laugh at me... SO please dont talk out of your ass like as if no one knows about Ali....

And your COMPLETELY missing THE WHOLE POINT, and thats that Ali has done a MILLION TIMES more in the sports world then Fedor, and is the face of all Legendary Athletes TO THIS DAY.

But yeah someone that can care less about 2 amazing fighers in Fedor AND Ali, i would expect a stupid reply like this...

And i think your the one that doesn't know shit about Ali and so you think no one else does ether...

Where u live again? Were u home schooled?

Hes my favorite can crusher as well and I feel your pain TS.

Nah, its always a sad day when a legend of the sport (or for that matter one of your favorite fighters) starts losing and not looking their self in fights. Chuck, Nog, Arlovski, Sobral to name a few for me.

These things happen to all fighters though and I think Fedor has had an awesome career and will be remembered at one of the greatest by all.

(FTR though I actually believe Anderson Silva to be the Muhammed Ali of MMA if such a comparison could be made)

Cassius Clay or Muhammad Ali as he is known today also invented rap (probably)..rappers should thank him for that...
Did Ali invent Rap?


Sorry to see Fedor go like this but he had a great career and years have taken their toll..

Maybe he will come back as a coach manager or something.. good luck to him what ever he chooses to do..
