All of Fedor opponents have been destroyed in more impressive fashion by UFC HW's. Babalu, Mirko, Nog, Coleman, Randelmann, you name them. Common opponents show Fedor would suffer the same fate as the rest of the Pride HW's. Fedor was king of a time when HW's weren't that strong and frankly weren't true HW's. I would take 5 UFC HW's against Fedor. He's ducking competition. He should retire or take on the best league. Frankly, I think he should retire. Even if he loses in the UFC, the excuses of age will abound.
Lol man, Guys like Nog is still relevant in the UFC. I don't think you get it..
Fedor fought these guys at a different time, during their PRIME. Most guys in the UFC fight a few times then they are out.. Fighters usually get worse after time, however not all, cro cop is one of those that got worse.
You can't take away Brocks win against Mir (who is a great fighter), just cus he keeps fighting 5-10 years more and ends up looking like a can.. Fighting the best when they are at their best proves that you are the best..
And Fedor has done that, and still is.. You say fighters today are so much stronger, bs, how come Pride guys like Hendo still knock the sh* out of most UFC guys? Fedor btw recently fought a guy as big as Brock called Brett Rogers, with probably a comparable strenght.. And won.
Brett is probably a top 3 HW. Most likley he would shake the UFC HW division badly, just as Fedor could..
