D241 -  For anyone to try to discredit Anderson or Fedor, shows you are a hater, have hater tendancies, and therefor need to re-evaluate what really makes you upset in your life. Surely, going to a mma message board on a sport you more than likely claim to love, only to bash or discredit a legend, is not the best you can do.

You are trying to do that yourself. I think you're fooling yourself if you think you're not biased. Not saying you're a "hater" but i think we've reached the point where we stop trying to convince everyone else to believe what we believe in this arguement by now and let people's opinions stand on their own.

+1. lol at D241 not being biased or not ever discrediting Anderson. True colors have been shown.

Fedor would be ashamed of some of his fans behaviors, especially the last 14 hours :)


I'm ashamed as well.

 

I never have claimed to be perfect. I made a mistake and did a HORRIBLE job of trying to make a point.

Losing to Dan Henderson, there is no shame in that. People have tried to discredit Fedor by using that fight.

People will try to discredit Anderson for losing by ko to a grappler with 10 pro mma fights.

 

The point is, both Fedor and Anderson have proved how great they were PRIOR to those losses. 

 

I know I didn't sound like it the hours following Saturday night, but I really am an Anderson Silva fan and will always be one. I do hope he shows more respect to his opponents in his future fights though.

Fedor is soe obviously GIGANTIC next to perennial Middleweight contender Matt Lindland Here:


Fedor is so obviously TINY next to #2 HW of all time Nogueira here:

And next to lifetime mma and K-1 heavyweight Goodridge here:

 

 

And to former #1 heavyweight who also has numerous wins over big heavyweights, including Fedor's #3 all-time win TIm Sylvia, Randy Couture:

 

 

 

While Anderson looks so HUGE next to WELTERWEIGHT Erick Silva:

 

 

 

...are we really playing the picture game in two threads simultaneously? lol

"Fedor came in at a rubbery 230lbs. with a large spare tire around his waist"

Look at this fuckin tub of goo

 

I propose a new rule, fighters should move further up the GOAT ladder the more out of shape they are.

Wasa-B - What's worse is that for all the whining about disrespect to Fedor by guys like D and others, they are coming out and doing the exact same to Anderson now. So disappointing. Trying to act like they are above this shit, are fans with such integrity then just acting like the rest of the punkson the forum.

I'll always be a fan of both fighters.

a plague on both their houses

Ha, and people say I made this a biased poll. We all have opinions, but I made this poll to be as fair as possible. Yes I have Fedor as the Goat, but I felt the results could be close, and this justifies it.

I think it is harder to stay on top as HW personally. Fighters are so big 1 lucky punch ends your reign. Which is why the HW divisions belt moves from fighter to fighter more often.
So my pick between Fedor or Silva is Fedor Phone Post 3.0

exactly!

HW has an 80%+ finish rate. there are weight classes for a reason.

they both have basically the same kind of career and fights and opponents, its just one dominated HW (for 10 yrs) and one dominated MW (for 7 yrs).

This poll ended up just as interestingly as it started up, in my opinion.

I think it's clear to see that both of these incredible, legendary fighters will go down in the history books as all-time-greats in their respective primes. Both Fedor and Anderson have had incredible moments in their careers, in which both men have seemed to make time stand still at some point.

I consider it an honor and a privilege to say that I witnessed greatness live in watching both Silva and Fedor cement highlights in the history reel of this sport while fulfilling both their respective legacies, leaving an everlasting mark in the timeline of momentus events this sport has given to us as fans.

Both are amazing and there are times when one is definitely ahead. However I would like to point out Fedor has received all this acclaim and even consideration to be the GOAT without a powerful marketing machine. His story has been passed on by YouTube videos and word of mouth. I think that's pretty amazing I've had coworkers mispronounce his name and even ask when he's fighting in the UFC. Phone Post 3.0

Holy Shit, I can't believe no one else has ever pointed it out in this thread yet but.....

 

Anderson/Fedor Legend Comparison

Though both not American, they both spoke English as a 2nd language, and BOTH had 1980's/1990's American Action movie superstars Steven Segal and Jean Claude Van-Dam.

 

So many ways to compare these two, it's amazing

I think fedor is goat because he is a heavyweight and I think Anderson is pound for pound because the way he demolished guys in the 205 division and the way he won his fights Phone Post 3.0

I like that Libero21. 24 pages deep and some great replies, yet I don't belive anyone said what you said.

One thing you can say for sure...

At this point in time, it is either Fedor or Anderson. I say Fedor, but that is my opinion and I can totally see why people say Silva is.

However I believe Jones will be considered the goat in a few years if he continues the way he is going. As much as it pains me to say it, I think he beats 'prime' Silva and Fedor.

GSP's lack if finishes really harm his shout for goat in my opinion. Phone Post 3.0

Often times when the "GOAT" discussion comes up, it's usually about Fedor, Anderson, and GSP.

More often than that, Igor Vovchanchyn is not mentioned.

Whatever your criteria for making someone a GOAT is, you cannot ignore
#1, Igor fought heavyweights most of his career
#2, Igor fought NHB and modern mma
#3, Igor has very credible wins
#4, Igor has one of the best win streaks compared to anyone

Igor's official record is 55-10, but he's had many other combat fights no listed in his pro mma record.

Igor Vovchanchyn is 5'8 and finished his fighting career fighting at 205 pounds.

Here is Anderson at 6'3 205lbs

 Igor Vovchanchyn went on a 36 fight win streak in the heavyweight division, 37fight win streak if you count the no contest fight against Kerr as a win.

 

36 fight win streak, at 5'8, in the HEAVYWEIGHT division.
