Thanks coreymb: "Yeah, Fedor fighting at natural weight is damn impressive."
I wholeheartedly agree.
And how does Fedor go to another weight class to dominate it to improve his P4P rankings? He CANT because at HW, so he is heavier than them all. I mean, other fighters in 205 walk around heavier than him, but if he won everyone would said it was expected so big deal. (Rampage Jackson was 250lbs at UFC114) (Anderson Silva has been known to walk around at 230lbs).
Fedor is the best:
Fedor is only 6" and fights at 235lbs. Brock Lesnar walks around at 300lbs or something
Fedor has short little arms, yet knocks taller guys out in his weight class. (Anderson and BJ Penn have freakishly long arms to give then advantage)
Fedor has fought top 10 ranked guys in his last 3 fights. Neither can be said of Brock Lesnar or Shane Carwin.
Fedor is a WRESTLER, yet won by knockout in said 3 fights with wins in the first round. (Tim was technically submitted, but still he was on another planet during the submission)
Fedor has never lost.
Fedor has never lost stupidly. (Anderson Silva vs Ryo Chonan, GSP vs Serra, and all other examples where the ranked fighter was supposed to win)
Fedor fought the past top fighters in their respective peaks (Cro-cop, Big Nog, Herring, Hunt, Coleman, Fujita, Semmy, Randleman, Arona, etc.)
Fedor is the most respectful "nice guy" top ranked fighter in the sport currently. (IE: Good representative for the sport)
Fedor is well rounded.
Fedor is well rounded in a division that RARELY has well rounded guys. Sure in 135, 155 there are guys that can win with submissions and standing (Jose Aldo, Urijah Faber).
Fedor is well rounded in a time when most top ranked fighters are not.
Does BJ Penn have Fedor's consistency, wrestling, striking, and submission ability? No. Does Anderson? No. GSP, does anyone see GSP submitting/standing with anyone? Heck NO. So not only does no Heavyweight compare, but nobody in any other weight class comes close to his skillset.
Now why is Fedor not deserving of #1 PFP, #1 Heavyweight?
