retarded comment imo. being the greatest mma fighter qualifies you as being the best fighter. boxing, sambo, etc is one dimensional. a real fight is bringing everything you've got to beat the other person. that's why it's called mma... not to see what the best is at one style, but to see who can put it all together and be the best complete fighter.
i'm sick and tired of people saying an mma fighter would lose to a boxer in boxing. of course they will, cause mma doesn't specialize in that one art. part of the reason why mma is starting to appeal to the main stream public is because mma is more relevent in a real fight where anything goes. whereas in boxing where you have to keep it standing, in a real fight such as mma you can bring it to the ground if you feel you are losing on the feet.
when in comes to a "real" fight... have fedor fight a sambo guy and yes he may lose on the ground, but he would beat the opposition in the stand up before the fight even gets to the floor. have him fight a boxer in a "real" fight and he would simply beat him on the ground. in the end when his opponent lay motionless on the ground, fedor would be the victor, warranting him as the better fighter correct?
so again... retarded comment. don't take away from fedor being the best fighter in the world.
