He should be humble...His career was padded...He got the decision against Arona which in my eyes he lost...Heat herring went ten minutes and reversed the pudgy russian...He lost his last two fights...Brett Rogers broke his nose after changing the tires on my car...Yeah he should be humble...
I mean the guy did have a video called the Baddest man on the Planet...Personally I think Cain, Brock, Jon Jones and Carwin beat him pretty easily...
He chose Strikeforce over the UFC...He could have made the move he didnt want Brock laying on top of him...I think hes not so happy now that UFC bought Strikeforce and they allow elbows now which will help a wrestler work him over now....He wants Dan Henderson...Seriously? He isn't the greatest of all time...hes the most overrated of all time...Hes humble cause he knows if he faced top competition all those years he woulda lost...He never finished any top level guys...
So with all that said at least Fedor and I agree I never believed he was the best either...
Your post shows how long youve been an MMA fan...not long at all...
Padded record? first of all if you did your homework at all you'd look at the rankings of those opponents you considers "cans" though they are obviously not ranked now they were ranked very highly ranked and regarded back then.
Babalu was in his prime
Kerry Schall was a decent HW
Semmy Schilt is the Goat of K-1
Herring was in his prime when they fought
Nog was in his prime for all 3 fights
Coleman was a top 10 when they fought the first time
Randleman was top 10 when they fought
Fujita was a decent HW
Cro Cop was seemingly unstoppable and people were making RIP Fedor threads on sherdog back then
Couture turned down the Fedor fight in bodog and thats why Lindland stepped in (yes this really happened, go look it up)
Sylvia was top 10 when they fought
Arlovski was ranked #2 when they fought
Rogers was top 10 when they fought regardless of if he ever deserved it
Bigfoot and Werdum are easily top 5-7
How can anyone sit there and trash the greatest heavyweight in mma history, what exactly has brock done to get this undeserved sense of accomplishment, had he not been famous he wouldnt have even gotten a bulls*it title shot at 2-1 (1-1 ufc) in the first place. Had he actually attempted to earn it he would not have probably gotten it, had he fought Cain or JDS or Werdum before an undeserved title shot who knows how people like you (casual fans) would view him. Probably not as highly thats for sure. ffs people still think brock is the best heavyweight and he got merc'd twice in a row, he's lucky carwin gasses so easily.
Carwin beats Fedor? Carwin gasses in under 2 minutes and hasnt fought anyone like Fedor or Bigfoot or Werdum, someone with a decent chin that will test his untested jiu jitsu defense, oh wait brock tapped him out, yeah he's a complete mixed martial artist huh? no cardio and no jitz defense. carwin is not top 10 anymore and neither will brock after a few fights.
Brock? the one time Brocks jiu jitsu was tested he failed miserably, and if they stood for too long fedor would knock him unconscious. if Brock tried to keep Fedor in full guard or half guard he risks being swept with armbars and leglocks.
He didnt choose strikeforce, why do uneducated people still not realize that Fedor was STILL UNDER CONTRACT,, dana is a clown for making you believe such lies, he knew that fedor was under contract and the way to save face was to say "hey, youre scared" why wouldnt he? why would he talk up the greatest heavyweight if he wasnt in his org? i bet you if fedor turned things around and won dana and bandwagon jumpers like you would change your tune. you cant just breach your contract with a different org just because a bunch of whiny fans want you to fight somewhere else.
