Thos old heads dont represent an "evolution"
Obviously you didn’t see the fight dumbass. Hunt didn’t go down from the headkick in their mma fight. Now go actually watch some fights.
They fought in the stone ages of mma and trained out of Coleman’s garage. You can’t compare them to current fighters. Why has Fedor never took down nor outgrappled a strong wrestler or grappler. He got manhandled by Arona.
Shogun was sloppy as hell in pride and didn’t know how to throw a proper punch. All fighters have injuries and surgeries. Hendo was 12 years older than Shogun in that fight, way further passed his “prime” than Shogun.
Prime Fedor would molest that pretender anyway he wants.
He was not manhandled. He constantly went for guillotine attempts while Arona never threatened with anything. That is why Fedor got the decision.
Arona is a grappling god and that was Fedor's 4th pro fight anyway. I am pretty sure Francis lost his 2nd fight and it was to somebody nowhere near as skilled as Arona.
This if false.
He was bigger, faster, stronger, more explosive. He threw a lot spin kicks and shot for takedowns and fought at a high pace in PRIDE.
Blowing your knees out can affect all that.
Yes, Hendo was old and had a lot of mileage himself too. That is why I said both were very far past their primes.
are you sure? it’s been 10+ years but i swear he kicked him in the head with shoes on and he got back up.
i could be wrong. couldve been their k1 fight.
point still stands.
Aroma may have been more skilled for his era than the guy that beat Francis. But that was 2000 when he dominated Fedor. Back then nobody in mma was very skilled. It was literally seven years after the first ufc. MMA evolves at a rapid pace, even if you don’t really realize it.
Lebron James would wreck Michael Jordan 1 on 1.
any1 with a half brain knows, that after all the surgeries shogun had, he wasnt the same.
srs question ... are you trolling? LOL
Hes far more skilled and technical than he was in pride. He was a sloppy wild brawler.
Francis however, is not.
Fedor would not stand a chance
