The only comparison between Fedor and Cain should be will the Cain JDS series we are going to see surpass the excitement of Fedor Nog fights.
As far as legacy.....its a little too soon.
I don't give two fucks if someone doesn't speak the same language as me, but Silva would have been marketed much better than Fedor ever was if he wasn't so stubborn. Genius generally comes with a stubborn nature though.
maybe in the books never in the hart of the true fans who statred this sport.
Does he deserve the best ever title? no
Fedor clearly accomplished more, by a mile...
But as far as head to head goes... I have Cain and JDS both ahead of Prime Fedor in my book...
Had Fedor kept evolving his game and eventually come to the UFC, it may be a different story. He certainly had the talent to make himself even better... but he let the game pass him.
Fedor grew old in the sport through the many years of war.
Something Cain and JDS have not done.
To put them next to each other is unfair. Past fighters don't necessary have to be "better" than future fighters. They came from different eras.
2005 Fedor would have stomped 2005 Cain or 2005 JDS. Does it matter? No.
Overeem would wreck him after he dispatches Bigfoot in 2 weeks...
"I leave this as a declaration of intent, so no one will get confused. 1: Si vis pacum para bellum. Latin. If you want peace, prepare for war. 2: Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. 3: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacies, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance. Punishment "
Not sure how getting rocked by a very powerful striker in your 6th fight is something to be ashamed of lol. Kongo left that fight a broken man, not Cain. Cain was the one smiling into the Camera with a bloody face at the end while Kongo was still on his hands and knees., not sure how you can hate on someone for that. By the way, Fedor's 6th fight................was Kerry Schall. haha!
Dos Santos was Cain's 9th fight. Who was Fedor's 9th fight? Ryushi Yanigasawa, whoever the hell that is lol Also, pretty sure there won't be any Zulzuhinos, Matt Lindlands, old Pedro Rizzos, or Hong Man Choi's on Cain's record when it's all said and done.
Cain is EASILY fighting better competition right now than Fedor fought for most of his career. He's got a ways to go to catch up to Fedor's legacy, but he definitely doesn't need to be 35-4 or anything like that because he will easily have fought more consistent top level competition when his career is over. Destroying Overeem will be a great continuation.
Seems like we got a lot of JDS fans on here that didn't like seeing their boy get smashed in the rematch

I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.
