Thread: Fedor: If I was in my prime, I'd want to fight Cain

  1. Default

    ^^Fedor's handspeed, power and awkward angles on his punches would have been a nightmare for Lesnar. He didn't show any real ability in his career to keep his composure while getting hit and Fedor would have exposed that brutally for mine.

    Fedor's ability to land ferocious power shots while travelling backwards would have also given Lesnar fits. Lesnar's bumrush across the would have simply charged him onto Fedor's Russian hooks and got him TKO'd.

    He was very sloppy in Strikeforce. He looked good in his last few fights though after training with Hoost. He really tightened things up again

    In a cage under unified rules, I think Cain would win 7/10 times. In a ring under Pride rules, I believe Fedor wins 9/10 times.

    Fedor is and was sacred, not scared.

    Very hard to predict the results of a prime Fedor vs a prime Cain. It would absolutely be a war. I think if Fedor kept some distance he'd land a knockout. Cain would likely take a decision by controlling the ground game.

    Fedor vs Brock isn't worth mentioning. Only someone looking to goad people in to a flame war would suggest Brock stood a chance. Brock did nothing in his career to show me he could hang with the greatest MMA HW fighter I've personally ever had the pleasure of watching fight.

    I have never understood why people would want to see Brock fight a guy like Fedor. Look Cain in as raw as he was during his fight with Brock showed us that anyone who has well rounded skills could beat him. Hell Carwin beat the hell out of Brock and I just do not think if Carwin could like Brock up like that he would have stood a chance against a person with the precision of Fedor. Then with the fact that Mir subbed Brock does anyone question Fedor's submission ability??? If Brock could not take down and control the fighter he loses.

    Now with all that being said, I believe Cain v Fedor would have been an MMA wet dream. If we had prime Fedor vs Cain of the past 2 to 3 fights that would have been a great fight to watch. Though Fedor has knockout power I do not believe Fedor would be knocking Cain out. I think in that fight we would see great transitions and two guys who would push each other into a brawl at points then switch to a grappling battle. I would love to see that.


    Those who do not appreciate life, do not deserve life.

    I can't help it if you never watched Fedor and only believe the Dana White spin but to suggest Fedor was scared or ducking anything is just plain stupid.

    At there peaks Cain vs Fedor would be epic. It really could go either way. I would give the advantage to Cain because of his work rate but Fedor could end it with 1 shot.

    Post like yours above bring these forums down a level and I do not think I've ever read anything from you that is noteworthy or intelligent.

    Oh well Ron White was right you can't fix stupid so I don't even know why I bothered to reply
    So much to dispute my opinion yet you couldn't name one lol. Run along now child, I'm not gonna bother with a moron who actually started getting personal on these forums with BK.


    As for what someone else already pointed out, yes Fedor looked pretty bad in his whole Strikeforce run (Even Rogers did some damage to him before the ko). They chose not to sign and it was better for his image in a way. Imagine how he would have looked in the ufc given that he went 1-3 in StrikeForce.

    In his prime he was better but was he good enough to have won a ufc title? We don't know, so stop bitching and crying because I don't agree with you.
