Give some respect to Fedor

Its apparent Dana White made a great job of making vast majority of the fans go from worshiping him like a god to saying hes overrated and nothing special. At the same time its Dana's job to promote his product while diminishing others, but theres alot of bs going on.

First consider he fought all the best talent available outside of the UFC. He fought Cro Cop and Nogueira in their prime (and they are better then Werdum, Bigfoot and Hendo). He also fought Arlovski, Rogers (who KO'd Arlovski even faster then Fedor) and Tim Sylvia coming off losing his title. He never fought a current ufc champion because he was never in the ufc... He was also supposed to fight Barnett before he pulled out who was considered his biggest threat. Point is he never ducked ANYONE. He was also willing to fight Overeem after Werdum, and was interested in a fight with Brock Lesnar (the ufc champion at the time).

Now I agree that he made the biggest mistake of his life for not signing with the ufc while still in his prime, but his 3 losses in a row came as a result of being out of prime and bad coaching/gameplan. As I mentioned before Big Nog and Cro Cop in their prime were better then Werdum, Bigfoot and Henderson because Nog beat both Werdum and Henderson and Werdum beat Bigfoot.

So the idea is that prime fedor was the best fighter in the world of his time (before Cain, JDS, Brock and Carwin even had their first ufc fight). If you give respect to Royce Gracie give respect to Fedor

No one credible is saying that he was never good. He was at one time the best in the world but that was several years ago. He hasn't been the best in years. His fans would not believe that and several still refuse by trying to make arguments for how good Werdum is, how much bigger Bigfoot is, forgetting about Hendo, and talking about how he could be a big force in Light Heavyweight.

It just isn't true anymore. If you are a fan of Fedor wish for his retirement. He doesn't have it anymore and he's not going to get it back.

The Fedor of the PRIDE era beats almost everyone.

The Fedor of Now beats almost no one.

That's not a knock against his legacy. His legacy is great riiiight up until 2006 when he started fighting cans. Him fighting cans on top of his recent losses and even looking bad against the likes of Brett Rogers shows that he's nowhere near top form anymore. And that has NOTHING to with Dana White.

It was an attempt at humor and Fedor is 34. Plenty of guys still doing well at that age. Not too mention after Werdum beat him he was tko'd in his next two fights.

He would have got much less flack if he'd have came to fight the best in the UFC, but instead he.....well we all know what happened. Unfortunate

Anyone who watches mma and does not respect fedor is not a real mma fan. Fedor legacy is like in any other sport he was great and was the best in his time. You can't take that away from him.

Its like when silval loses and people shits on him then. Fedor is the greatest from 00-06...silva 06-present...when silva loses a new cat will take the reign.

786 posts, you should know Fedor isn't in the UFC and this doesn't belong here.
