Plus, Dan has had alot of close decisions go his way. Some people sometimes mention that they thought he won the Rampage fight, which I'm fine with as it was very close. But what about his fights with Carlos Newton, Ninja, Murillo Bustamante, Shogun, and Kaz Misaki? He is extremely lucky to have all of those fights go down as victories.
ok, so normally i stay out of any discussion that has Fedor in it..AND i'm going to get flamed big time for this but i can take it and it has to be said; Hendo lost to Shields, Rampage and Silva. the common denominator in all 3 fights is there was a TITLE AT STAKE. HE lost the unification bout to quinton, a MW SF Title fight and a MW UFC title fight against arguably one of the greeatest MMA practitioners of an era. FEdor lost a nothing fight to Wurdum, a beatdown of epic proportions against bigfoot (who has been dismantled twice since) and knocked out for the first time in his career by hendo. Make no mistake, I'm not saying Hendo is the GOAT. But to insinuate Fedor did it cause it was the twilight of his career is bullshit. Fedor is 35 and is for all intensive purposes done. Hendo is 40 and has a shot at another title. This is no knock on either guy, but the facts are facts so if you dont like the guy fine, but dont say "he's no Fedor".
