MMA News – Dana White: Fedor one of the greatest heavyweights ever, but not THE greatest …


Fedor ‘The Last Emperor’ Emelianenko has always been a thorn in the side of Dana White.
The UFC president has almost ever taken what he wanted to take. Almost.
It’s also no secret that Emelianenko retired without ever fighting for the UFC, in spite of the several attempts that Dana did to make him sign to fight in the Octagon.
During the years, White has been critical of Emelianenko’s regard as one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time, but now that the Russian has retired, he can be more honest about his value.
Do I think that Fedor is one of the greatest heavyweights ever? Yes, he’s one of the greatest heavyweights ever. I’ll give you that,” White said.

MMA News – Junior dos Santos is the “Baddest Man on the Planet”. Jon Jones is warned

Junior dos Santos highlights

Junior ‘Cigano’ dos Santos is the current UFC Heavyweight Champion and is ranked as the number one heavyweight fighter in the world by numerous media outlets. He is undefeated in the UFC (MMA 15-1-0) and seven of the nine UFC victories came by way of knockout or TKO. In the two decisions he’s had, dos Santos has made a mess of his opponents, so the word “unanimous” leaves no doubts (against Roy Nelson at UFC 117 and Shane Carwin at UFC 131).
Despite his great accomplishments, dos Santos is rarely mentioned in the mythical “pound-for-pound” discussion.
But a man could change this, if they ever meet: Jon ‘Bones’ Jones.
