Believe me, I Love Fedor. These last 3 loses have broken my heart.
While I do consider him one of the greatest of all time, I just don't know if he's really considered the GOAT.
From 2002-2006 he definitely was. But that was only 4 years.
Look what Anderson Silva has done in the last 5 years.
Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.
Favorite Fighter: JIM MILLER.
Scariest Dude on the Planet: TYRONE SPONG.
Other Favorites: Chris Lytle, Martin Kampmann, Joe Lauzon, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor, Paul Daley, Ross Pearson, Donald Cerrone, Renan Barao, Glover Texiera, & Alistair Overeem.

Should he be remembered as one of the all time greats? Yes. Will he go down as the Greatest of all time, IMO no. His record is amazing and going undefeated for ten years is a great accomplishment, but didn't Wanderlay win something like 22 fights in a row? What about Anderson Silva and his string of wins against comparable opponents or the fact that GSP has basically cleaned out his division? How about the things Hoyce gracie did? All of these things have shaped MMA history but none of them could make anyone of those fighters the GOAT. That title clearly belongs to Brock Lesnar...
and that was a joke
Compare to the skill level and well roundedness of the best HWs today, Fedor's record only looks good on paper. That's why he's on a 3 fight losing streak. He's the same fighter, but other fighters skillsets have caught up to him and some surpassed.
Overated is not too strong of a word for him right now.
hey.. whoa whoa... no need to call fedor a chink.But a chink was in the armor of Fedor after that fight.
Come check out my video game stream!
Fedor was the "GOAT" back in his prime. Now he is being replaced by others (re: Anderson Silva).
hes not the GOAT. He is 3rd in my book. Behind Anderson and GSP. Iv seen a lot rank him there. Whats wrong with that? Even being in the discussion shows what he has done and accomplished.
