Fedor Emelianenko

Hands down the greatest Heavyweight Mixed Martial Artist of all time. Fedor went undefeated for 10 years before being defeated by Fabricio Werdum by submission in the first round. Fedor at one point was the most dominant, respected, and feared fighter in the world. Injuries and old age just seem to keep effecting him though. In Strikeforce, he received his first loss and went to go on 3 fight losing streak. He would lose to the likes of Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva, and Former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan Henderson. Fedor would be released from Strikeforce due to these loses. This was a shocker to MMA fans because Fedor was so dominant that fans believed he would never be defeated but in MMA it's always bound to happen. In Fedor's prime, he had a style like no other in the sport due to his Sambo fighting style due to his military background and he would bulldose through opponents. His style was pin point and when he threw his punches he put all of his weight on it. This man could put a grizzley to sleep with a falcon punch I swear I'm telling you people. Not to mention his grappling was superior to all that he even tossed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts around and even submitted some as well. Watch his first fight with Big Nog and you'll see exactly what I mean. Not to mention he can take a punch just as much as he can give one. This man has survived wars in and out of the sport. His body has took such a toll it's crazy and he still continues to fight. Fedor survived encounters with Mirko Cro Cop, Andrei Arlovski, and even an career ending suplex that he just wiped off and submitted Kevin Randleman. Fedor was a beast and unstoppable but old age and injuries caught up with him. Fedor without a doubt deserves the title "Greatest of All Time" in Mixed Martial Arts Sport but he still continues to fight and give lackluster performances and takes brutal beatings. The Fedor of old is just no more and he is only tarnishing his own legacy because of it. Fedor is great but I would just like to see him hang it up before he gets seriously hurt. His fight against Matt Mitrione was not a surprise to me because of his with Macdonald in Russia. But I know if Fedor was in his prime he would of went through those guys easy. With now a compelling record of 34-5 as a professional, do you want to see Fedor continue fighting?
