I was hoping the interviewer would ask about the old chute box days and sparring&training with anderson..Silva was always in his corner at the pride fights.

I like how he say's Lyoto was his toughest opponent ever, and credits Fedor as # 1 p4p. Shogun's a great champ cant wait to see more fights from him, it is kinda unfortunate that there's no stomping and soccer kicks allowed in UFC.

Most UFC champions say Fedor is the best, so it's really nothing new.

It's a joke I know! Redicilous how many pros pick Fedor, just because he is such a Legend.

But I guess, that the benift from being a Legend^^

I will drop him from my 25 p4p if he doesn't accept a fight with Overeem!

I'm sure Fedor is worried about my threat here ;D

I'm sure a lot of the pros pick Fedor not only because of his career, and his legendary status, but because of what a laid back nice guy he is. Anderson Silva, BJ Penn, and even the all might GSP have an arrogance about them whether they would admit it or not.

Not to discount any of Fedor's accomplishments, but I'm sure a lot of his status is derived from the fact that he is a likable guy.

Thats a good point Brian!

He get's a lot of Love from his fellow fighters and deserves it too. His personality is really p4p number 1 material.

But from a legit standpoint, Fedor should not even be in the top 5 anymore. I put guys like Fitch, Machida ahead of him.. cause even when they lose, they lose against the best!

I don't think he chooses the right one here SJ

see Lyoto didn't even needed surgery. Rua needed two knee surgerys!

I think he should change^^
