Noguera was top of the food chain until Fedor came around. Other then that, I always though Hendo was p4p, same with Linland. Also, BJ Penn has the potential to be the best eva....

I seen that also. That is my favorite fight of Fedor's. that and Lindland.

I watch the Randleman fight for comedic value from time to time. Then I go watch a Randleman fight so I can hear him go on a tyrant like usual.

It's been hard to find alot of Fedor fights. I have really only seen him fight about 6-7 times.

What I do know is he is the best MMA fighter I have ever seen. Great at putting his strength (which is pretty much everything) and dominating you at your weakness. Is he the smartest fighter ever? I think so.

Royce was the god of MMA when it first started, but then it wasnt really MMA it was style vs style, so he was god of jiujitsu in "Ultimate Fighting", he showed the importance of learning a ground fighting technique by submitting guys of other discipline. Rickson is on another level as far as Jiujitsu goes but still, he really never fought anybody great. He was like the Royce in japan, but better. IMO the best fighting Gracie is Renzo. The first fight I seen of Fedors was against Gary Goodridge, I have never seen anybody dismantle Big Daddy like that, I was like whoa....

About 5 Years ago I bought every pride on VHS off Ebay for $120 and taped everyone since, so I just go back and watch old fights all the time. Pride 10 and the MW grand Prix's are my favorites....

Upload some ya asswipe.

Like I said I have only been watching MMA for the last 2 yearts. Really been digging into it the last year or so. I have seen most of my stuff off old VHS's that you get at the video store. Still, there are plenty fights I haven't seen.

I havent seen much early pride, but in the early days of UFC probably - Vitor Belfort, he looked like the man until being beat by Couture at ufc 10.

others of note, Frank Shamrock, Royce Gracie, Severn, Don Frye, Taktarov

The internet worshipped Igor Vovchanchyn back in 2000 and rightfully so, the guy was a legend...

I still worship Igor. Him and Sakuraba where my favorite fighters for a long time. It's a shame that he was never able to reach his full potential.....

Royce Gracie was God in UFC and Rickson Gracie was the man at Pride. They both had fought much bigger and heavier foes during their tenure. No weight brakets, real warriors!
