That was Fedor in his prime. Hunt was fairly new to mma and was winning the fight. The Hunt of today would have smashed Fedor in his prime. Fedors ground game looked real sloppy.

Hunt knew Fedor was going for it but didn’t do anything to defend, psh. Just psh. Makes me wonder if it’s fixed, if hunt kinda gave up, or he just didn’t know how to defend. Any of them are possibilities.

Never realized how close Fedor was to losing that on multiple occasions…..just shows his mental toughness… to come back after being dominated most of the fight

All you puds trying to discredit fedor. He is the best not only because he didn’t lose for how many years but when he was not dominate he found a way to be tough and still win during those years. Hunt is not that much better now if at all. He was younger then with less injury’s and probably better cardio and strength. It makes a difference.

I wouldn’t say Fedor was getting “dominated” that fight. He initiated most of the contact, and he went for a lot of throws that Hunt was just a little too heavy and awkwardly big to get him all the way, resulting in Hunt with top position. Mark didn’t do much on top. Fedor gave up position going for that crazy armbar early on and getting stuck in the ropes. When Hunt had Fedor mounted and Fedor bucked him off, Hunt clearly grabbed the ropes with both hands. I think at the end Mark was too tired to do anything besides try and keep Fedor’s leg tied up and keep him in half guard. It was a good fight from two warriors that always come out to fight.

So many people have such little respect for the Pride days. It makes me sick. So much skepticism. When the UFC started it was almost embarrassing watching Royce dominate bar brawlers, street toughs and guys with absolutely no grappling training. Pride had the benefit of starting a little later, and hence the talent level was a little better. At least most guys had some kind of fighting discipline or background. Weight classes were almost non-existent at the time. Both of these guys were undersized heavyweights in general. Fedor stands at 5’11 and Hunt looks about the same. Comparing them with modern juggernaut heavyweights is a pointless discussion. The impact of a fighter varies based on what competition they had at the time. Who’s to say that if these guys were entering the MMA game now as youngsters watching the modern, advanced MMA fighters and learning modern, diverse techique that they wouldn’t be able to piece together their skillset to match what is going on now and still dominate. The skills they used then were developing to beat the people of that time. Saying they wouldn’t hold up today is retarded because the people out there now are improving on what these guys were doing years ago. The young guns today were watching these guys fight and probably thinking about how they could make it better. It’s stupid to compare then to now because it’s natural for people to study what happened and make advancements and improvements. It wasn’t fixed matchmaking. They were fighting people who were available and active THEN. Remember, ponces like Tim Silvia and Andrei Arlovski were heavyweight champions of the UFC. Do you think either of those guys would hold up to Cain Velsasquez? Of course not. Stop with your stupid comparisons and enjoy the fights.

you newbies are retarded, Fedor fought Hunt with a broken big toe

This was the fight that gave me a lot of respect for Hunt. He came close to defeating fedor with that keylock. Watching it again, it seems he either gassed or it may in fact have been fixed.

Yes, it was a broken toe and Fedor couldn’t stand and fight so he took it to the ground. You guys need to understand that this was 7 years ago almost to the day. Fedor and Hunt and all of the guys in this era were top fighters. The game has changed, training is more intense, coaches have better strategies. Everything grows. You cannot compare the NBA of 1990 to the NBA of 1980. Once the 3 pointer was developed the game forever changed. It was about shooting and not lay ups. Understand and enjoy each era for what it brought. Appreciate all warriors and athletes for entertaining us and pouring it out. Enjoy life.
