Default Re: Strikeforce-Fedor "The Last Emperor" Emelianenko Vs Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva

It might be the beginning of an end (or simply the end) for Fedor, but his legacy will live forever. Guy is in his thirties, with the way MMA has evolved over the years; it's kind of hard for fighters in their 30's to continually win these days. Younger, stronger, more athletic, well-rounded guys take the torch from them rather quickly; are we going to dismiss Matt Hughes or Chuck Lidell because of their latest struggles? No of course not, and Fedor did something greater then either of them (stay undefeated for an entire decade).

The guy is a legend, and Dana White is a total douche bag. If he wasn't so nice, I totally see Fedor punching the guy out if he ever saw him on the street.

Fedoor has never been CLOSe to that dominatting in his fights. Yoou guys need to chill with the Fedor exaggerations. Tyson has eassily been more domiinating fight for fight.

Tyson was less dominating than George Foreman. If you want to talk about a bone crushing boxer, use George as an example.

Dude started his career 40-0 with 37 KOs until Ali lucksacked a win against him by leaning the legally punchable half of his body out of the ring for half the fight. That blows Tyson's record away. And he did it against good fighters like Peralta, Frazier, Norton, etc. Not just crap. Foreman was also a stronger puncher than Tyson. Check out some youtube vids of him wrecking everyone.

Not the fat Foreman either, I mean the young one. Foreman came back as a fat old man and was still knocking everyone out, but the young Foreman is the one you want to see.

Foreman's total fight record: 76-5, 68 KOs. Was knocked out only once (the Ali fight). And 3 of his 5 losses were decision losses as an old fat guy (he was between 42 and 48 for three of those losses)

Fedor is now past his prime. He just needs to retire at the end of the year.
