    You're ignorance is showing, son.

    either way DW wanted Fedor if he was the best he would bragg/boast it. I f he lost he would do the same saying the best have always been in the UFC. With Fedor on board it would of been a win / win. To me the main hurdel was the UFC wasn't giving up any control M1 wanted, and M1 wasn't doing it without some control producing it.
    It's all water under the bridge what ever either side says

    Point proven..

    Fedor IS, and ALWAYS will be the Greatest Pound 4 Pound Fighter of all Time. You can't deny what he did and who he beat, all of the best in his time.
    Some of your points don;t really help your cause...

    Arvloski was a shell of his former self
    Cormier was far from an established HW at the time Fedor joined and was behind both JDS and Cain in this regard
    Overeem had built up his MMA legacy beating nobodies and many questioned his true relevance in the rankings
    Karitonov fights MMA very sporadically and his success is based on favourable match ups
    Rotgers was a softly ranked top 10 at best his biggest win was against the aforementioned Arvloski

    You also left Mir and Nog off your list for UFC fighters.. not saying they beat everyone on the Strikeforce roster but they could have beat more then a couple on the list.

    Not debating that Strikeforce heavyweight roster might have been slightly better but it was a pretty small margin in my opinion and doubtful that it would have weighed heavily in things.

    You also left Mir and Nog off your list for UFC fighters.. not saying they beat everyone on the Strikeforce roster but they would have been competitive with alot of them at the time.




    Plain and simple Fedor didn't sign with the UFC because they wouldn't co promote with M1. Everywhere Fedor went in the ast few years of his career that was part of the deal. Had nothing to do with who had the best heavyweights or whether Dana liked or hated him.

    Yes but never forget that a lot of MMA fans have a very very short memory.
    Most of them do not even remember that Tim Sylvia or Andrei Arlovksy were Top 5 fighters when they faced Fedor. They think that those 2, alongside with Mark Coleman, Mirko, Nogueira etc. were always at the low level they are now.

    They forget that indeed even Brett Rogers was a Top 10 fighter when he faced Fedor.
    For some convenient reason they do not remember that Fedor almost fought Josh barnett (Top 3 at the time and arguably Top 5 even today), and that fight did not happened because 2 days before, Barnett tested positive.

    For some convenient reason the only fights they remember of Fedor are his 3 loses, and his bouts with Zulu and Choi.

    He does not sound like a little child at all. In the video he explains the things, it is not that he simply said "That evil Dana White just hates me!". He explained that there were negotiations, they never reached any agreement, that Dana White made too much noise but in reality he did really nothing to sign him and that at the time he felt that Dana had some sort of haterade towards him and his management because of how often he was talking shit.

    If the average MMA fans have enough knowledge to know who Zulu and Choi are, then surely they would know that guys like Crocop, Nog, Arlovski, Sylvia, Coleman, Randelman, Barnett, etc, were all at the top when Fedor faced them. Makes no sense to say that MMA fans would have a short term memory of the above mentioned names as "has beens' when Fedor faced them and somehow have a excellent memory knowing 2 of the more insignificant names in MMA (Zulu, Choi) that FEdor faced.

    If that was the case, you would not have retards saying things like "Fedor is overrated, he just defeated bums like Zulu or Choi, and got destroyed when he finally started facing legit competition".

    You would not have other retards saying "Tim Sylvia? Arlovksi? LOL, they are not even Top 20 fighters. A win over them means nothing at all. Cain and JDS are real fighters, Sylvia and AA are cans"

    They just remember what they want to remember, and they think that if a fighter is irrelevant today, it means that he has been a can all his career.
    They do not realize that in 6-7 years, Cain and JDS also are going to be irrelevant, and the new generation of retards are going to say that they always sucked, however Tony Martínez (an invented name for a future HW champ) is the real deal.
