That being said, there’s a lot of talk about Fedor retiring after his last two fights which he lost by a Triangle to Verdum and a TKO by Antonio Silva. Lately I’ve been trolling some threads where basically everyone has been discrediting Fedor and dismissing him as washed up and over rated. I’m not sure where these people get off calling the greatest heavyweight in MMA history “over rated” but its kind of a knock on ignorant American fans that probably didn’t even follow Pride at any point or see any of his fights. Its easy to erroneously state he fought no name guys in Pride, but statistically, a lot of these kids running their mouths didn’t even watch Pride back then as they were still being weened off WWF and suckling the teet of TUF and UFC by Chuck Liddell and Ortiz vs Shamrock rematches.
A lot of arguments I read present valid points on both sides, but the Fedor haters are forgetting one thing: Fedor is already a fucking legend. If you call a legend “washed up” that’s fine, it describes the state of their career. Michael Jordan was essentially washed up after his days in Chicago. But calling a LEGEND overrated just discredits your entire fucking opinion, your claim of having a penis, and forfeits any future argument you might ever make for the rest of your life.
I’m not saying Fedor is gonna win or make a prediction or even whether or not he should retire. I’m definitely pulling for Darth Fedor BUT, if he does lose and does retire, Henderson would be a worthy opponent to end a fight career on. And either way this should be an epic battle, although almost 50% of Hendo fights end up in a decision.
Would love to hear comments on this for either side, we haven’t had a good old MMA debate here in awhile. Just keep it factual and intelligent or I will shit on you. Hard. I leave you with a great highlight video. The last third of it looks more like shark attack footage to me.
