Its not the same. Fedor has already fought and beaten the best...I mean ur actin like he has to prove himself against young upstarts...I'd say its the other way around. U act like he has to prove himself against brock who has what 5 pro f!ghts and a legit lose on his record? And please stop actin like andrei and slyvia could no longer hack it so the ufc cut them..that is not what happened. s**t I remember before both f!ghts several ppl including dana sayin fedor would lose to each of them..I'm not sayin they are elite comp at this point but both were on win streaks prior to facin fedor. U wanna jus throw away his old f!ghts like they are meaningless. Why? Because they weren't in america? Maybe ur justa new mma fan. Fedor=the greatest mma f!ghter ever. He does not need to beat a dude with 5 pro f!ghts to further justify that.

So let me get this straight you claim he's already beaten the best? So what the f**k he f!ghtin for??
who has he fought lately?? When I see that 7 of the top heavyweights in the world are in the UFC and he aint f!ghting none of em I'm not buying into the hype as the best f!ghter in the world AS OF NOW I aint askin if he the best ever thats a whole different debate when u aint fought a top tier opponent since a Nogeira or cro cop in their prime its easy to say u shouldnt be mentioned with the likes of a Silva, GSP, and etc as of right now cuz those guys are f!ghting better competition and in deeper divisions
thats like Jordan playin in every b ball league except the NBA and he destroying everyone in these smaller leagues but the NBA but callin himself the best to ever play the game
those dudes WERE the best, he from a era where the heavyweights arent as advanced as the ones today and he's in good health, the only excuse I can give him is that he's an older f!ghter and he came in 1999 but so did a lot of other f!ghters and they went on to f!ght in the UFC and test they luck some prospered some didnt
My point is we know he did what he did in Pride thats great and all but we in THE PRESENT and he's still f!ghting so those wins are meaningless now, if your not willing to f!ght the best then why f!ght at all I guess to pump up his record so it looks good, not taking anything away from the guy talent wise but never f!ghtin in the UFC is a huge blow to his legacy, I truly believe that his management knows that dude risk more losses in the UFC than Strikeforce and they wanna make him seem untouchable to make money off of him, if he doesnt live up to the hype in UFC his stock drops, he's playing it safe where he can pick who he wants to f!ght versus Dana tellin him who he gotta f!ght, thats why he's pulling this retirement bulls**t now
I guess Fedor
