Re: MMA vets: Please educate my friend on Fedor's accomplishments
Odd, you'd think going undefeated for 10 years would be good enough (the loss early in his career wasn't legit). He beat prime Nog twice (Nog had a 19-1-1 record for their 1st fight and a 24-2-1 record for their 2nd fight, not including their no contest), prime Cro Cop (16-2-2 at the time), and a number of former UFC champs. He beat a variety of skilled opponents. He beat high level strikers (Schilt, Cro Cop), high level wrestlers (Coleman x2, Randleman) high level BJJ guys (Nog x2, Arona, though I'm not so sure he beat Arona), and guys who had a good height/weight advantage over him (Sylvia, HMC) all the while being a small HW (around 230 pounds). Oh yeah, there's also that little thing where not only did he go undefeated for 10 years but he also never lost a round in that time span.
You'd find a better answer asking one of his nuthuggers on Sherdog, though.
