I've heard he's a great fighter, but when I did a google image search he looks like he doesn't even work out.

Your joking right?, assuming your not all i can say is looks arent everything man, he is technically really very good, good chin,great ground game, great takedowns, great standup, great gas tank, very fast, very strong, just a great all-round fighter and as of now he can be considered the best in the world, it'll take someone good or a cut to beat him.

Yeah he doesn't look physically threatening at all imo, until you know who he is. When I first joined this site, I had no idea who he was and was in the same position as you. My best advice would be to look up some highlight videos of his on Youtube.

Fedor's weight training is exclusively plyometrics: chin - ups, push - ups, box jumps, etc.

He trains for explosiveness, not pure strength or appearance.

As Nate Deezy said go to youtube or dailymotion. If you are going to be a fan of this sport, you must be acquainted with the greatest of all time.

You guys need to take it easy on this guy. He is posting in Noob section and asked a very objective question because it appears he really just wanted to know the answer. I feel like we are the MMA Nazis with a god complex sometimes on people who don't have common knowledge. I repped him just because I know someone negged him.

I dont think he is in the red for making this thread.... half of his posts have been begging for rep


I have no problem with threads like these and I would have given him a serious answer but a couple people before me already did

No other fighter is even remotely close to Fedor's run of victories against the best in the world. The question now is just how far is Fedor going to take it? It's seems unbelievable that he just keeps winning.

I looked at this thread right when it was made and the guy had neg rep, so i dont think it was because of this.
Probably from his first 3 posts which are all asking for rep.

He is like Barry Bonds of home runs.

He was like the early yankees when they were untstoppable

Hes the scary man you dream about, when you shoot him he only gets more pissed.

I mean he out struck Mirko when they fought. He is just magic

Severn
07-20-2007, 11:04 PM
I like Bonds to so :angry4:

Anyway Fedor is the best. Reasons have been stated by many above but what I find humerous is how with each interview with Fedor and others who train Fedor his kilometer runs get longer and longer. First it was nine kilometers a day then 12. lol

He's already becoming the stuff of legend but his training regiment will be just as legendary. By the end he'll have ran 20 kilometers a day while single handedly keeping Russia safe from the evil terrorist organization known as Cobra.

he's supposedly the best at hw, but i think he lacks the heart. he definitely is too mechanical when he fights, he's missing style but he does always find a way to win. he prepares enough for that to happen

WTF?
No heart?, you've seen him come back from being slammed on his head/nearly ko'd, cut, nearly sub'd only to win shortly after right?

No style?, you've seen him slam Herring to the ground, gnp Kohsaka, sub coleman with the same armbar twice, escape every sub attempt by Minatauro, blast Goodridge and Cro Cop with strikes when its supposedly their element right?, cause it sound like you need to do some research on Fedor.

I acknowledge that Fedor is the best in the world, but how many of you would say he's your favorite fighter?
I always tune in to watch him, but there's quite a few other guys I'd rather watch than Fedor. CroCop, Rampage, or Georges St.Pierre for example though they don't win every fight and even get KO'ed every now and then.

I often tell people who know nothing about MMA about the "Baddest Man on the Planet". For effect I let them watch the Zulu fight and his fight against Big Nog for the title......then they agree.

He's the one guy that has taken on all comers and either put them away or won a decision that wasn't a surprise. He's the most dominate champion in all of sports hand down.

And yes, he's one of my favorite fighters, I don't just like watching him, he's one of my favorites.

fedor is the baddest hw on the planet fighting right now.

I somewhat disagree. Fedor is the baddest motherfucker walking the planet right now. Not just the baddest HW, not just the baddest P4P, he's the 1 guy on this planet who is unquestionably not going to get his ass kicked by anyone on the face of this earth. He is the closest thing to supernatural you are ever going to see and he's by far the greatest champion ever of any sport at this point. Are there any other champs who have defended a title as much as he has? 13 times I think. I don't know of any champion in any sport that can say they haven't lost a contest in at least 5-7 years. I'm speaking off the cuff so I could be off a little bit but I know I'm pretty damn close.

He's the closest thing to supernatural we've ever seen. He would be the equivalent of Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, and Ozzie Smith rolled into 1 baseball player. Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, Dion Sanders, and 3 linebackers rolled into 1 football player.

This is a good question to ask because Fedor does not have the huge, super muscular/cut look you'd expect when hearing about such a dangerous fighter.

However, his skills are off the hook..he can take a hit(watch the Randleman/Fedor fight where Fedor gets dropped on his head and shrugs it off like mild dandruff).

Most importantly (to me anyway) he has the mental edge. He knows he is the best, he believes he is death with gloves and that gives him the edge IMHO.

yes i agree, its stupid how people are giving this guy shit for this thread. fedor doesnt look muscular or cut, or even like the steriotypical tuff guy or fighter, but his skills are excellent. he brings well rounded to another level, he isnt just good at everything he is excellent at everything. add to that he is very humble and likes eggs and pancakes.

ya i know that was crazy, fedor is basically the closest thing to a perfect fighter in every way. he knows when to be calm and not just swing wildly, he know when he needs to put on the pressure and be agressive. an honest question for somebody starting out in mma though.

Here is what real fighters think of Fedor. I'll take their word for it.

Fedor is the best pfp fighter in the world
-Randy Couture, UFC HW Champion

Fedor is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world aside from bj Penn, those 2 are the best fighters in the world.
-Rampage Jackson, #1 contender for UFC LHW title.

It's FEDOR dude!
-Eric Pele

He is the BEST
-Mark Coleman, former UFC HW Champion and Pride GP Champion

the best in the world, no doubt
-Phil Baroni

Look, I’ve fought many people from around the world, so I’ve seen many strong fighters. But like him, never
-Renato Sobral

Fedor is on top now, it's hard to beat him now
-Pedro Rizzo

NOBODY wants to fight fedor
-Wanderlei Silva, former Pride MW Champion and GP winner

Our great champion, he is the BEST in the world.
-Josh Barnett, former UFC HW Champion and adcc Champion

Fedor has no equals in Sambo or MMA
-Aleksander Mikhailin, 3-time World Judo Champion and Fedor's former training partner

Fedor would be absolutely great in k1
-Ernesto Hoost, 4-time k1 World Champion

Fedor has no weakness! I have seen so many fights, and even the best fighters in the world have a flaw in their game but I have yet to find one in Fedor Emelianenko.
– Bas Rutten, former king of Pancrese and UFC HW Champion FSN

probably the best ever lived….he’s a living legend right now and I don’t think there’s a man on this planet who can beat him; the man is unreal. Pound for pound the best in the world
–Diego Sanchez, hooterandgreenway radio show

Fedor is my favorite
-BJ Penn, former UFC Welterweight Champion and bjj world Champion, NWFS 7/9/06

Fedor is the most incredible fighter you'll ever see
-Frank Trigg

fedor is pound-for-pound best in the world
-Shamada (Pride referee)

Fedor is a machine
-Don Frye

The best fighter to climb into ANY areana is Emelianenko fedor. He is in his own league and you can't compare nobody.
-Kevin randleman, former UFC HW Champion

Fedor is just too dominant, too good at punching people in the face. The way he punches people man he's trying to kill people, with both hands. He's in a whole different class by himself.
-Brandon Vera

He is the best and undefeated... His striking game and his ground game is the best, so that's why he is the best... He is the sh*t
-Mark Hunt, k1 World Champion

-"He’s the total package; looks can be deceiving. He’s incredibly strong, his hips are amazing, probably his best asset. Hard to hold down, hard to do anything with the guy………shit he’s just the best, that’s why he’s the best. He gets in position to throw the big bombs, he throws just as hard on the ground as he does on the feet. That’s why he’s the world Champion.” – Mark Coleman

-"He’s the fastest I’ve ever seen. Much faster than Mirko. And he’s got a great reaction. Technically he may not have such a big advantage, but physically he is the fastest heavy guy in MMA history. He tries a punch, misses it, then immediately shoots again, Cro Cop for example didn’t even see them coming. He must practise that a lot, because it’s not easy to improvise that kind of thing. He is really with a good combination of styles, he can go from one art to the other, that’s what makes him different." – Antonio Rodorigo Nogueira

-"He has a fast eye, good for counter-attacking. And in every fight he shows up with something new under his sleeve. Against Filipovic he used a great clinch-strike combo: he’d go for the uchi-mata, quickly following with a powerful hook." - Pedro Rizzo
