I like Fedor he’s a humble man but you have to admit that Dana saved himself alot of money and now we all know where Fedor stands! Jerry Millen is a bitch and I hope Dana kicks his ass and I loved Dana’s smiley face tweet last night! M-1 is M-Done Log in to Reply thxer February 13, 2011 Every great fighter loses their fire eventually. Time for the former P4P king to hang ’em up. Very sad day. Log in to Reply yo February 13, 2011 He is still the best fighter of all time we will never again see a fighter with the kind of skill and heart that fedor has. He will be missed to bad he couldn’t go out on a big show. Log in to Reply joehero February 13, 2011 The Dragon blows my nuts. Youre an idoit! When did you start watching mma? 1-2 years ago? Do some research. Fedor defeated everyone that mattered during his era. Renato Sobral, Semmy Schilt, Heath Herring,Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (3 times),Gary Goodridge, Mark Coleman (twice), Kevin Randleman,Mirko Filipovic. All in the prime of Pride. I bet you have the same opinion of Chuck Liddell. Feel free to not to ever post a comment again. Log in to Reply ^^^^ February 14, 2011 I love Fedor, but he’s no longer the best fighter in the world. He just gives up too much size, power, height and reach to be competing with the HWs. He’s also not the best at any skill, but over the past 10 years, he has found a way to win every single time with some really close calls. I’ve also Been hearing a lot of Anderson Silva > Fedor because of his last 2 loses, but how can you even compare the 2? Silva is bigger, taller, longer reach than most of his opponents at MW. Heck, even Silva would be bigger than Fedor in a match. Anyways, how can anyone not be a fan of this man, who has never said a single bad thing about his opponents, never said he was the best, always humble and had heart to fight guys who were bigger than him. Last night, if the doctors didn’t stop it, he would of went on to fight. Thanks for everything Fedor! Log in to Reply mohamtagcad February 14, 2011 now you know why he didn’t move to ufc…. to get all the glory for his fans who believes in him!!! Log in to Reply Corey February 14, 2011 Ahh, the heavyweight division, the only division where the fighters are no where near the same size. 4 inches of height and 50lbs of weight… like putting BJ penn against Ruo Shogun. That said, Silva still displayed an excellent skill set and was very methodical. He won this hands down, but fedor isn’t big enough to hang in the heavyweight division. The main reason he did so well 10 years ago, was because the heavyweight division wasn’t incredibly talented then, and the pride day heavyweights weren’t 280lbs. This was another freak show fight IMO, but unlike fedor’s previous carnival acts, the cards were really stacked against him here. If he couldn’t beat this guy, I seriously doubt he would have had a chance in hell against overeem. Sad sad day. Log in to Reply mbg February 14, 2011 It all got to him. Too many people wanting to be around him, too many opinions and suggestions and idea’s for Fedor to stay simple and focused. Looks like Fedor didn’t even train for this tourney.. did anyone watch this bout and not have their jaw open the whole time?! No one has ever seen Fedor get his ass handed to him this way, just shock and awe.. Log in to Reply kenjoe February 14, 2011 hahahahaha. its the end of the empire. fedor beats a lot of *****s in the strikeforce now his fighting tougher opponents better than the *****s he beats. hahahaha…. Log in to Reply Toan February 14, 2011 fedor gives up at least 20 lbs to almost everyone he fights, you think it is easy? @the dragon, please watch more than 1 mma fight before you start talking? Fedor didn’t duck anybody and fought the best, but everyone gets old or one day meets their match. Fighting at 2 weight classes above where he could cut to is gonna be hard. Log in to Reply dailey February 14, 2011 As soon as Silva took him down, less than 5 seconds into the 2nd round, you just kind of knew it was going to be a long round for Fedor but the beating he took was unreal. The first round could go either way, the 2nd round 10-8 to Silva. Fedor loses if it went to the 3rd round. Its too bad he was in self imposed exile for so long between Pride and Strikeforce, I think we missed out on some great fights. You can see exactly who he was, even at the end of the 2nd round and not being able to see, he was still working to see if he could sneak a submission from nowhere, but it was too little too late and Silva wouldn’t have tapped to an ankle lock with that little time left in the round. Log in to Reply judomaster February 14, 2011 Fedor isn’t the best anymore at this time. But he is still under top 5 in SF. Better are Owereem, Silva and maybe Khafritonov and Barnett. I think that Fedor is still better than werdum. Werdum just got lucky. He got hes ass kicked before the sub. fedor could also still compete in ufc. There are just velasquez and JDS definitely better. Others are on the same level.

He is incredible! I am sorry for his loss, and to MMA’s loss. In my mind he will retire as GOAT. Log in to Reply steroids4sonnen February 14, 2011 I really wanted to see Fedor mix it up with guys like OveRoids and Lesnar and Gonzaga and Couture and wow so many damn others…But hey, at least Fedor doesn’t want to treat his fans like Crocop (joke-op)or the Ice Man treats his…if you’re merely garbage of your former self then you’re garbage, time to walk away and buy a rocking chair watching old clips of your past victories with a smile on your face. Log in to Reply kaution187 February 14, 2011 needs to go down to 205…the guys are not just huge but athletic as hell moving like featherweights. Log in to Reply yourmomsucks February 14, 2011 A doctor’s stoppage is a loss. Fedor got his ass kicked. I’m a fan, but the Fedor era is over. He’s been in too many wars. He also does not have any good training partners to push his game to evolve. Sad to see, but all of those Pride era greats like Nog, Cro Cop, Belfort, etc are done. By the way, “PitfighterZ”, Arlovski has not done anything in the sport. He lost to Tim Sylvia – that says it all! Log in to Reply wEz February 14, 2011 Even though I favored Fedor by a 60-40 margin, I knew the odds were way off in this fight. People flamed me on this site for saying Silva (and others) had a decent chance based on his size, strength, technique/ability. In today’s constantly evolving mma, you can’t be as inactive as he’s been and think your going to be on that top level. You add Fedor’s age and weight disparity and there is no way he should have been a 6-1 favorite against an underrated fighter like Silva. Log in to Reply Stan February 14, 2011 Fedor 134 lbs, silva 184 on fight night if i remember corect. Fedor should trye out LH, I think its more suted for his body type and height. With that said, the thing i always loved about Fedor, is to se a small guy beat up a big guy. Log in to Reply Donster February 14, 2011 its a loss fedorvssilva lmao Log in to Reply jpkrunch February 14, 2011 whiteshadow, you can respect Fedor’s many accomplishments all you want but that statement about the UFC is nonsense. What do you have against Junior and Cain? No way tubby old Fedor takes out these rising stars. Log in to Reply Freaklegion February 14, 2011 And ya, they do need to rethink the weight classes past heavyweight. Guys keep getting bigger and bigger. Log in to Reply TsaGoii February 14, 2011 Undeated in 28 consecutives fights. From 2001 to 2009. One of the most successful winning streak in the sports. Thank you Fedor, and all hail the new comers. He did fought lot of guys that were quite heavier than him. Props to Big Foot. Log in to Reply Beast w/ 8 Limbs February 14, 2011 There have always been big heavies. Fighters like Tim Sylvia, Semmy Schilt, Bob Sapp, and Hong Man Choi, but as of late these monsters are developing monster skills. We’re seeing more and more legit HEAVYweights with tens of thousands of hours of jiu jitsu, or wrestling under their belts, and good hands. With all these assets, added to their huge size, a small heavyweight like Fedor has fewer chances nowadays. All I’m saying is that maybe Fedor shouldn’t retire yet, but first try going down to 205 and taking on Feijao, or Henderson, or even Lawal, or Mousasi. Hell, they don’t have a half bad LHW division. He’ll have to start training better, and extending himself more to the top fighters for training. I just wouldn’t want him to go the way of Tito Ortiz, or Royce Gracie, among others, who were left behind, skill wise, in their own sport. Log in to Reply ETK February 14, 2011 I was amazed at how Fedor rolled to escape the full mount, then rolled again to escape the rear choke, a few times, that was smooth. I was surprised at how Fedor swung wild and missed so much, and how Silva mounted him so promptly. I’ve seen many fights permitted to continue with worse damage than that. Fedor is highly rated in many categories; skills, precision, experience, athleticism, power, stamina, endurance, chin, composure, striking, wrestling, grappling, rankings, decorations. Maybe Fedor, of all people, should have been permitted to continue, if he wished to do so, ref should have gave him the choice, at least a little longer.

Log in to Reply PUBLIC7ENEMY February 14, 2011 hes not the man he used to. hes not that smart anymore. hes not that all around anymore. all hes doing is STRIKE. not like in d past. takedowns, wrestle, jiu jitsu, sambo. u cant win all d time in strikes. O man i dont want to say ITS D END. u still can do something fedor MAKE IT HAPPEN!!! but first u have to lose that belly. Log in to Reply Jbs77 February 14, 2011 The sport has moved past Fedor, he is the MMA equivalent to Cecil Fielder at the end of his career (including the belly). Log in to Reply Mulch February 14, 2011 Fedor has truly earned a top spot in MMA. He has done great things for this sport. And he is more than a champ. He is a legend. Log in to Reply Sans February 14, 2011 What this fight showed me wasn’t that Fedor is over, but rather that he can no longer beat a fairly skilled and durable opponent who dwarfs him. I hate the 60 pound range for the heavyweight class. Fedor is a bit pudgy at 230, and there’s simply no way he can beat someone so much larger. All other weight classes jump between 7 and 10% over the class below, but the heavyweight class jumps nearly 30%. Maybe Fedor could get down to 205, but that would be a stretch. They need a 230 pound class. Then we could see if Fedor is really washed up. Log in to Reply RuttenJump February 14, 2011 come on his sttriking is ugly but powerfull.Still Its far from any ufc champ’s stannd-up skills.If he was athletic we would be fit enough to be in 185.Thiago Alves weighs 206 pounds and he fights 170.Fedor is good but his God persona and communist mafia management just killed his career imo he stopped fighting good guys after Pride.And nobody wanted to tellhim to learn new skills in his training crew so eventually when you are good but you dont evolve(specially in MMA)people catch up to your skill level.I hope he doesnt retire .Imagine him with better and crisper boxing he would destroy everyone he has amazing grappling skills and he could be 205 minimum in athletic form.Nobody gives him props for fighting a guy 60 pounds heavier than him and doing a great fight.FEDOR WITH A REAL TRAINING CAMP AND COACHES IN 205= FUTUR UFC CHAMP. Log in to Reply mmaboxingfan2 February 15, 2011 @zayzay13 he never got his ass kicked. He got outweighed by 45+lbs. Im not making excuses for fedor. But bas rutten said it the best. Heavyweight should be 205-230 super heavyweight 230-265 too big of a leap from 205-265….Also alistair overeem takes this tournament easily easily easily. Log in to Reply acidhead February 15, 2011 Its also possible that the new overlying story here over shadowed by Fedors retirement ambitions is the emergence of a rising mma star in antonio silva. He is a great fighter who processes a stand up and ground game but most of all he can take a punch and suck it up. Just look at his past fights.. he can eat a punch like nobody else @ HW. Log in to Reply bobbo February 15, 2011 I see Silva winning it all. Seriously with that big ass head he can take a punch. My guess he wins it all. His takedowns and BJJ is just too good. He’s like a bigger, stronger, younger, better striking version of big Nog. Log in to Reply Bowb February 15, 2011 fedor got man handled big time. no wonder his management team didnt let him come to the UFC. can you imagine how fast brock lesnar or cain valasquez would have put him on his back, and their ground and pound is much harder too. fedors got balls and a kockout punch but its not very useful when your on your back. he should add some td def to his list of characteristics. Log in to Reply nagear February 15, 2011 @zayay13 “He got his ass kicked bye bye in the mma world.” So unless the guy maintains a PERFECT record against prime fighters that outweigh him by 50-60 lbs he’s a nobody, done, finished, get the F*CK out of MMA – in your book (of SH*T)? Stupid, ignorant and in-bread are an understatement to your intellect. You are nothing more than a peanut in my turd. Log in to Reply wow February 15, 2011 Sad day, really its a sad day, **** the haters, and **** the fake lovers, a true legend he really is and always will be. He had a great first round. Unlucky the size killed him, hope he doesnt hang them up bigfoots one ugly prick Log in to Reply Jack February 15, 2011 All this hating Zuffa zombies. Look guys if Silva was in UFC he will be worshiped by dana,as if he was greatest thing in the world. Big foot Silva most likely beat anyone in the ufc. Silva have biggest hands I ever seen,and you get hit with that it’s over. I truly doubt Lesnar,Cain or Carwin can handle bigfoot. Log in to Reply tact February 15, 2011 This fight is a window into the style of Fedor, his looping punching style would lend itself to being annihilated by the like of Cain Velasquez, that mount was solid, granted he was outweighed by 50 pounds. Log in to Reply kenmolina February 15, 2011 too bad he didn’t take the UFC pay day for fear of being embarrassed by the best. now he’s being embarrassed by ufc hopefuls. as far as silva- i like strike force, and love a good match, but people who are going crazy over this kid because he beat up that washed up bum like fedor need to wake up. he got SMOKED by ufc cast away werdum, and he had to take clowns like arlovski and ricco rodriguez (lol, really??) to decisions. i like werdum to take the title. no sweat. Log in to Reply RuttenJump February 16, 2011 Cain could beat Silva fairly easily.Silva got dropped last fight with a punh by a nobody and Cain has GREAT wrestling and 100x better stand-up.Still Bigfoot could win too if he manages to get it on the ground but still Cain would have a big edge Log in to Reply wow February 16, 2011 jack, you taking the piss.. bigfoot would be destroyed.. Cain and Dos Santos would chew him up.. Fedor won the 1st round, he got outsized in the second, and if you swell you swell. i agree with the decision, Fedor is still in MO.. no the best HW in the world, but the one i like to watch the most, the one with the most alure, he is special. Log in to Reply kid candle February 16, 2011 Anyone calling Fedor a fraud and a hack and whatever else doesn’t know jack about martial arts and fighting and shows their ignorance and low intellect. You really make yourself look very stupid saying stuff like that but I guess it’s easy to post anonymous crap on the internet while having accomplished nothing at all yourself, especially what Fedor has accomplished, which no one else has. All the best fighters in the world are saying Fedor is awesome so who the hell are you all to be running your mouths? Log in to Reply hubcitytx February 17, 2011 Fedor is still the man, he was def oversized. Would like to see him at light heavyweight division though, that would be sick! Log in to Reply 95%MMA FANS R ****S February 17, 2011 Fedor is a great fighter,one of the best but that doesnt mean its a fluk when another man tries and gets you to tap,or if you get beat by a bigger man,knowing the rules before the fight. Log in to Reply swamp donkey February 19, 2011 I can’t believe people are saying Fedor is crap!!! This guy was at the top for a long time and fought and beat countless champion caliber fighters! Whoever says he is crap doesn’t know crap about MMA this guy is a legend! I would like to see him at 205 and see what he can do against those guys, but if he retires…thank Fedor for so many awesome fights, you were amazing to watch. Log in to Reply RuttenJump February 21, 2011 anyone saying doctor stoppage isnt a loss never fought in their life.Fedor knew he was beaten.Some dummies will say Koscheck had the same thing but he could continue.But the fact is Koscheck was so injured he couldnt get on a plane because there was too many blood in his broken orbital,therefor it made MMA look bad to the athletic commsion and they told the UFC about not stopping the fight.So i think SF didnt want a slap on the fingers so they told their doctors to do their job and stop a fight when the guy is too badly injured.In any other sport a guy with this injury would miss a week or 2 even in Soccer or baseball.So imagine your job is fighting and your are losing with a broken face.I would be happy(not on the moment) to not need surgery because his face was severly damaged.
