I agree, 205 would have been good for Fedor. Imagine if we had Fedor inside Aleks' body.

EDIT: Sorry for double posting, please merge

Another one for the ignore list.

Also its worth noting we are likely to see a decline in Reem's striking due to not being at Golden Glory anymore.
Who knows, he still has Spong in the camp. Even with decline, he's still better at striking than the majority of the division.

Oh I definitely agree. Fedor is still talented and when he was dominating was the most talented fighter out there, and deserving of the legendary status he holds to this day. The problem with Fedor is that he always relied on being more skilled than bigger opponents. Now you have guys like JDS, Cain, Overeem, and even guys like bigfoot, that have evolved their games and have brute strength or speed to go with it.

Calm down I was exaggerating. We all know Fedor is a legend but he really hasn't improved his game and is is pretty much retired.

I know, Silva got caught for it once, but he could try it again and ask a witch doctor to psychologically control Overeem.
