well this guy pretty much nailed it. just waiting on peopleschampion and other nuthuggers to reach over.
Before I saw Fedor Emelianenko fight, I thought mixed martial arts was a debased and debauched distraction for frat boys and thugs, more evidence of the slow demise of civilization, as if more evidence were needed.

Im going to turn this GOAT thing upside down. I think Achilles is the GOAT. Think about it. He defeated everyone he went up against and was immortal. Not to mention he fought to the death. He was only defeated when a god guided an arrow to kill him. Obviously divine intervention is cheating. Achilles > Anderson and Fedor.

1- Irrelevant argument. I could go out and fight the worst guy in MMA 200 times and win every time. Would that mean I am the greatest of all time?
2- Again..irrelevant.
3- Also pretty irrelevant.
4- Not true. Cro Cop, Coleman, Big Nog (Fedors most significant fights in Pride) were all about his size. He also fought Henderson who weighed in as a LHW in their fight and still knocked Fedor out.
5- Completely irrelevant.
6- ...
7- Arguably. What happened to those guys when they came to the UFC?
8- Most irrelevant argument so far.
9- Not really.
10- You guessed it..I.R.R.E.L.E.V.A.N.T
11- Cry me a river.
12- Anderson is the very reason his opposition never became Champions.
13- Yeah, Anderson should go to Bellator to prove he is truly the GOAT...
14- This is not the Ultimate Grappler. Sonnen also had better grappling. Remember what happened to him?
15- ^^
16- Cool story bro.
17- VERY cool story! Completely irrelevant, but still interesting though..
18- Ok..I give up...you defeated me..

As much as I love both and P4P argument, OP hits the nail on the head. Spot on. People don't realize how hyped Fedor's opponents were at the time. They weren't always aged, out-evolved >1-1 bums.

Fedor or Anderson Silva. First off, the better fighter of the two will forever be an opinion unless they ever fight. I am a fan of both and I saw the points made in favor of Fedor. Now, allow me to point out some points in favor of Silva. Fedor's reign was during a time were people were still getting into the grove of cross training. We had the one dimensional era knowing one art where Royce Gracie dominated. Then the good on the ground & good on the feet era were Don Frye & Marco Ruas came in. Next, the beginning of cross training on a whole new level where Fedor reigned. Finally, the result of the new breed that have cross trained and are now top of the food chain where we now see the likes of Jones Bones, JDS & Cain. Ok, Fedor was a beast and dominated during his era which was close to the current era. We all saw what happened as he started to compete in the current era. Silva has dominated in the current era. Silva did want to fight Fedor according to Ed Soares and I know for a fact that Fedor claimed Silva was to small....yet Fedor fought Matt Lindland. Fedor lost 3 in a row....Silva never lost 3 in a row. Silva has held gold in the biggest and most drug tested mma org we have...the UFC....Fedor never did. Fedor got whooped so bad that he could not come out of the corner to continue vs Big Foot Silva. Anderson has never been dominated and beat up like that to a point where he had to stop. Fedor is younger and retired after safely taking 3 easy fights to help him go out on a good note due to his 3 straight losses while Anderson is older and still competing at the highest level. Silva fought more #1 contenders than Fedor (well he was champ). The only common opponent for the two is Dan Henderson. Dan was tapped by Silva but KOed Fedor. Like I said earlier though, the better fighter will always be an opinion unless they decide to fight. Fedor would have to come out of retirement, not be scared of his record being tarnished more and fight. Silva has 10 more fights on his contract so he obviously not scared.
