Eye of The Beholder: No One is Invincible.


It seems that when somebody gets on a winning streak and has the "it factor" it becomes apparent to me that people want to build a shrine for that person. Gegard Mousasi was getting to that point. Thanks to King Mo Lawal we don't have to worry about that. Then we had Lyoto Machida with his 15 fight winning streak and we have Shogun  Rua to thank so the mma bloggers can't build a shrine for him. Last but not least we have Fedor E. He is technically undefeated but i would say since he is not beating the best mma heavyweight fighters right now he does not deserve the number 1 ranking.  I once went back and forth with a person named striker dave and he had me beat on the money angle of fedor that he should get paid the most and maybe the UFC did not want to give him that type of money or whatever they wanted from the UFC  It's not the fault of the people who do rank these fighters that he should not be number 1 anymore. We just have to look at his contempararies in pride. Cro cop and Noguiera have both been beaten badly in the octagon by Gonzaga who is around the top ten and JDS(who is top 5) and Velasquez who just destroyed  Noguiera(father time catching up with these guys). These were both men that gave Fedor E. a great fight when they were in pride. So imo you can take that info and say that Fedor E. by beating  Werdum is not proving anything to anybody. Until he fights Brock Lesnar, Shane Carwin, Cain Velasquez , JDS and even Frenk Mir he should not be the # 1 fighter in the world. I have seen many MMA magazines out and they owe the number 1 heavyweight ranking to nobody who is not fighting the best. Fedor E. was once fighting the best b/c when pride was in existence they had the top three or four heavyweights in the world (outside of Randy Couture) He no longer fights the best in the world. Nobody is INVINCIBLE.
