There's not much UFC President Dana White will concede when talking about former Pride heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko.

I really didn't enjoy hearing Dana trash Fedor and Overeem when his best HW was Randy.

$20 says if Fedor signs with Bellator DW will say Fedor is a farce not fitting to fight on TUF.

So Dana admits he's one of the greatest HW's but not one of the greatest.

Dana's not honest like most praise him to be. He's a promoter who comes across in an honest way.

'One of the' huh? I wonder who he is thinking was better...

As for this nugget: “Is he one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time? You’re out of your minds”, Dana is out of his mind. You don't be the best at your weight class ever and not be one of the best of all time.

Right. Sort of like how Michael Jordan WAS the Michael Jordan of basketball.

What gets me if Fedor is not the greatest HW of all time than who is?

Nog
Mir
Timmy
AA
JDS
Cain
Brock
Coleman
Couture
Barnett
Carwin

The list is not that vast.
