    What?????

  2. bigjake says:

    Seeing Fedor on anyone’s top 5 list is hilarious

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      That’s probably because you’ve been following MMA for about 5 minutes. If Fedor isn’t in your top 5 you basically admit to knowing f$ck all about the sport. F*cking newbie

  3. Sugar says:

    Silva, by definition alone there can only be 1. Fedor was alright but didn’t really fight any worth while names. Jones doesn’t fight people his own size, plus he’s still at the beginning of his career. Liddell, while a pioneer, amassed quite a few losses. If Liddell is GOAT, same could be said for Wanderlei or Cro Cop.

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      You can’t hate on Jones because of his genetics, all these fighters cut massive amounts of weight it’s just the sport. For me Jones is certainly in the top 5 of all time, just look at who he’s beat and how he’s beat them.

    • Kyle says:

      Are you kidding me? Fedor is 7-0 against UFC Champions. He’s beaten the likes of Cro Cop, Big Nog, Coleman, Arlovski, Randleman, Fujita, Arona, etc.

      Guys the GOAT.

    Fedor will probably always be #1 for people that have a high level of respect. You can’t get anymore humble than Fedor.
    He beat so many great fighters relative to the time. I think this is a sweet list. A lot of people that haven’t followed MMA for a long period of time probably can’t make sense of this. I can
