From his comments about Alistair Overeem, Bas also shed light on who he thought was the greatest MMA fighter to ever live:

"I am just saying that Big Foot has upset the world before and stopped Fedor (Freaking Fedor people!! In my book still the greatest)"

-10 years undefeated. Modern fighters fight once a year and can't go one year without losing.

-The division he fought in was arguably tougher and deeper.

-He fought and won multiple times in the same night, multiple times.

- 7 and 0 against former UFC champions.

- ***TEN MINUTE FIRST ROUNDS***

- Fought in the ring which eliminated the ability to run from your opponent.

- During his reign he was challenged and always came back to win decisively.

- He should have cut to 205, but never tried so he could prove himself the best at his natural weight.

- Didn't lift weights or strength train for years.

- He trained in a fucking snowy park.

- The most nimble, swift, and clever HW fighter of all time. He blended techniques together like a bantamweight.

- Knees to the head, kicks to the head, no elbows, and no cage. So no ability to just be stronger than his opponent and hold them down.

- Won fights decisively off his back numerous times, as well as being the most feared striker, and ground and pounder in the world. Legitimately the most well rounded fighter we had ever seen at that point in MMA.

- Fuck you you're a noob if you think different.

When Anderson was on a streak unequalled in the UFC, Fedor was getting KO'd by a guy who almost lost to Mike Kyle and a Middleweight that Anderson dispatched in 2.

Perspective.

I agree with you on most these point...BUT...



- Knees to the head, kicks to the head, no elbows, and no cage. So no ability to just be stronger than his opponent and hold them down.


This also means that since there was no elbows or no cage...the opportunity for Fedor to be held down by some just stronger wasn't there, which means he too could very well have gotten pinned and elbowed into a Bolivian if Pride had a cage and he faced a game planning wrestler.



Just playing devils advocate on that point.

Fedor had the best run of anyone in our sport, in my humble opinion , I agree with Bas. Fedor was the the baddest man on this planet , when The Pride Fighting Championships ruled the world. Oss!!

N/m. At first I thought you were referring to Werdum, and I was going to say that Werdum handled Mike Kyle, but I think you're talking about Bigfoot. I wouldn't say Bigfoot knocked him out, but a point was made and I see it.

Does it benefit you to bring up a loss from  a decade ago? I'm pretty positive that the Anderson of today would trounce both of those fighters at the same time.

Come on guys Fedor WAS NOT KO'd by Big Foot.

No doubt Fedor was beat up but a testament to his heart he was ready to come out for the 3rd...the doctor had to stop the fight!

And nobody can say for sure what would've happened if there was a 3rd round

My trashing of the Takese/Chonan argument was completely appropriate. Don't skip over the cause to answer the effect, then go on to an honest-to-goodness retard comment by bringing up a 10 year old loss.
