So what you're saying, if they are all washed up and all, is that the Heavyweight division has ZERO actual fighters in it, correct?
Or do you mean that only fighters in the UFC are not washed up...

I agree Fedor would probably win this fight via sub.....but I sure would like to see Fedor in the UFC so he could fight some more exciting fights. I can't help but feel that most ( not all ) of the best fighters who are in their prime are in the UFC.
When I watch other organizations' fights...I can't help but YAWN! Many do looked washed up or one dimensional.
Someone send White an e-mail! Let him know we want Fedor in the UFC ! LOL!
Truthfully...I don't see why Fedor couldn't sign something like a 5 fight deal something like what Vitor just did. Yes, Yes, I know all the explanations but I still don't get it. He's run out of opponents! I don't personally like Barnett as a fighter. Plus I think Barnet is scared of him & uses "he's my friend" too much.

honestly i think Fedor has not been active enough. Neither has silva. They have not been fighting the compettion they should be. GSP has been fighting some real challengers though and will continue to. In my opinion he should be ranked #1 in the world real soon if things continue down the same path.

i really wish you guys would quit riding the damn fedor train. hes not unbeatable. put him against some real competition and see what happens. yes aa was real competition and if he would have stuck to the game plan he would have won imo. fedor is not god. he didnt armbar satan to sleep and he doesnt eat pigeons and **** angels. come on guys hes human. not t3. jesus christ get off the mans wang plz. when he gets real competition in the form of couture gonzaga or any of the effin heavyweights the ufc has then yes he can truely say he right hooked jesus into his death bed.

God? Arguably. Best fighter? for sure. Noone has beaten as many people on their peak as Fedor did and kept unbeatten for this long. So I don't even see who could have been brought to comparisson as who'd be the best fighter in the world.

In terms of 'being on Fedor's wang', I am definitely not riding his jock. Before he beat AA you said: "He needs to defeat a Top 5 HW!". Now that he dispatched AA you say: "AA totally may have won, had he stuck to a game-plan which appeared to be working in the first round!"
When you look at your arguments, they are not that strong.

I agree Mullett. I think Anderson is stuck with little to no competition at 185, as there is no one there who stands a chance IMO. To me he is the best, but he doesnt have the opportunity for big fights like GSP does.

In regard to active fighters, there are few fighters whose relative competition is as strong: GSP has beaten "the greatest WW" twice in convincing fashion [Hughes]; a fighter perennially considered in the P4P top five twice, with the last being a complete domination [Penn]; has avenged both of his losses in dominating wins, and; has always fought the upper echelon of his division when given the chance.
To me, the fact that he has beaten BJ Penn twice is a resounding endorsement. (The last bout being an absolute destruction.) If BJ beat Georges twice, the fanboys would have his golden shrine already prepared as the GOAT - a bit of a double standard there.

I think the double standard as you perceive it is due to natural weight difference. I think they are fan boys for both who are completely out of touch.
I think if Anderson would move to 205 permanently and dominate then he is #1.
Regarding Fedor, he needs to be more active, that is his only draw back. He has beaten everyone who "matters" outside of barnett, and that will happen soon enough.

I just think he needs more fights, cause it's hard keeping your belt against tuff competition, but I feel like it's near damn impossible never making a costly mistake after 30 some fights and never getting caught like Fedor has done.
04-16-2009, 11:30 AM
IMO, the P4P is like this:
1. Fedor (he has not lost a fight; if you dispute this, then you have never seen the vid or know the rule of that org.)
2. GSP (his loss to Serra, although flukey, keeps me from putting him at #1)
3. Andy (division is too thin)

The Serra fight is most certainly flukey, however, he got caught and lost. I gotta agree with Rodja here, that does hold him back, as that never happens to fedor....amazingly
