Fedor Friday Fanpost

Maniacs,

Whether you consider him the GOAT, a can crusher or just another HW; no one can deny the mark Fedor Emelianenko left on MMA.

From his glory days in Pride to his humbling losses in SF - I picked what I thought were some of his most significant matches.

Brett Rogers : this match signaled the end of Fedor as an elite HW, IMO. Even though Fedor finished Brett impressively, the effort it took for Fedor to dispatch a raw Rogers was a signal that the era was over.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Tim Sylvia : this match proved that Fedor still had the desire and skill set to dominate a former champion despite having fought a string of lower tier opponents previously.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Cro Cop - this match cemented Fedor's greatness as he defended his Pride crown, decided to meet the

best HW striker on his own terms - and won.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Nogueira : his 2 matches against Big Nog confirmed his status as the best HW in the world as he simply dominated an opponent that everyone feared at the time.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Werdum : this match ended the impressive streak that Fedor had accumulated.
