I'm blaming you for, rarely directly responding to my arguments, never answering my pertinent questions, and all the while omitting facts about Anderson and exaggerating facts about Fedor. All irrational fanboy bullcrap, and sadly most Fedor fans are like this so it's hard to actually enjoy him anymore. You're on the verge of rivaling Kusok
And to further my point...you reference Anderson Silva's UFC debut as if that is the only person worth mentioning that he has beaten in the UFC, completely disregarding the fact that despite Leben's inferiority in the rankings, Anderson Silva had a 100% accuracy in the fight, was the first to KO Leben, and did it all in 39 seconds. Yeah, he sucks. Meanwhile in Pride, Fedor punches out Wagner Martins (
), submits a dinosaur he had already beaten, and submits a kickboxer that outgrappled him for the majority of the fight...forgive me for not being overly impressed with your messiah.
Well you are not saying anything for me to discuss. You think Fedor fought only cans and Silva is an uber god. You pick out certain things in his career and compare it to certain parts of Silva's, yeah that is fair.
Like I said. Compare who Fedor fought with who Silva fought and there is no comparison. Fedor beat the best in the business at the time, Silva beat the best in the weakest division imaginable.
The reason I brought up Leben is because that is who he fought when he ducked Pride/Cage Rage.
I was simply using the exact same logic as you two. He brought up Leites, Cote, and Maia, so I brought up Goodridge and Wagner Martins. Yet you're only going to call me out? You say this "You think Fedor fought only cans and Silva is an uber god" yet I was just copying what you guys were doing to show you how stupid it was, and guess what, you've resulted to insulting me? So I guess I can call that a mission accomplished a job well done eh? The MW division was actually very competitive before Anderson came around, much like the WW before GSP came along. If Anderson wasn't in there, the rankings would be crazy, just because Anderson is so much better than his comp, doesn't make the comp bad. I know Fedor didn't look that graceful in his victories, but that doesn't suddenly mean Mark Hunt is a grappling god just because he wrestle-raped Fedor for a good amount of time.
And how did he duck Cage Rage? By becoming their champ and then going to the UFC to beat the champ? Are you serious? Cage Rage was when he really came into his own and started becoming the Anderson we know today, and took all comers, yet he ducked that organization? And you're still going to go on with this Pride ducking bullcrap? He was 3-2 in Pride as opposed to Fedor's 1-3 in SF and Anderson beat Sakurai, a much better fight than Chonan or Takase. On top of that he blasted Newton's face off of his skin with a beautifully timed flying knee. Who exactly was he ducking? His coach Wanderlei? You're not making sense.
At least Anderson has fought in all major organizations save for SF. Where has Fedor fought? Pride and the retarded cousin of the UFC, SF, and he went 1-3 there. Your case isn't looking strong buddy. All you've done is resort to restating your opinion and then subtly calling me stupid because you disagree with my opinion, which tells me you've got nothing, just a bunch of bold statements with no evidence to back them up.
