Holy crap, I just have to say is there still a doubt in anyone's mind that this guy is the most dangerous man on the planet? :shock:

that was pretty shockig... part of me thought there could be a big tim syliva upset but that part of me was a complete moron.

i was impressed that he slipped that choke in so early... be itnerested to hear what sylvia has to say.

yeah i was disappointed about how fast it was over, you cant really appreciate fedors skill and brutality when its over that fast.

But what can you do, when the hits land spot on and guy is fucked, you take it :D

And that is what makes Fedor the greatest fighter to ever live. His speed, timing, ability to transition from one realm of the fight to the next and the speed with which his brain runs through the millions of calculations that take place during a fight puts him among the greats of all time.

of course now they're hyping the couture/fedor showdown which seems inevitable.

you can never count out randy, but i have to think age & power are on fedor's side, and probably overall skill. but would be a big payday for them anyhow.

Randy would have to try and lay and pray Fedor. That's his only chance of winning I think. Fedor is fast and powerful and his judo/sambo and submission skills are better than Randy's wrestling and ground and pound.

i do not understand how people think Couture is in the same league as Fedor. Randy has lost 2 of his last 5 fights that included getting KO'd twice by Liddell. he is only 16-8 overall and people want to call him the best of all time? obviously he is a good fighter, but you should have to win more than 2 fights to be considered the best in the game.
Are you doing enough to be the best?

I think Randy would be in way over his head against Fedor. The fight would go as follows:

Flurry of punches
Body lock
Judo throw
Ground and pound
Arm Bar

Win.

The former UFC heavyweight champion summed up the evening: “I don’t think Fedor is human. He is by far the best fighter in the world.”

C'mon guys, it's a win over Tim Sylvia. Hardly cements your greatness regardless of how quickly it happens.

Fedor still has plenty to prove in my opinion. Not as the best heavyweight at the moment as I think that's clear. But to call him the greatest (or even P4P #1) his level of opposition must be better. Hong-man Choi, middleweight Linland and Mark Coleman just don't cut it.

I thought Andys win over Irvine was more impressive.
Syliva = big lumbering oaf (fe fi fo fum springs to mind)
Irvine = Dangerous dynamic striker
And Anderson made him look awful, bulk him up a bit (he says he walks at 215) and I think he'd tear Fedor a new one

What? Silva caught a kick and punched him. That's like beginner martial arts tactics. It was text book, day one stuff.

Catching a kick to me hardly seems like a sign of a world class fighter. I'm not disputing Silva's skill or contention as top in the world, but comparing Silva > Irvine to Fedor > Sylvia is a bit off, IMO.
