Hahaha who doesn't turn him into a russian Jesus? We gotta be careful with that, before you know we're sherdoggin' al over the place!
This is some Jack Slack (love the guy) stuff on Fedor. I see Jack as the best analyst in the game, but opinions can differ. If you read some of this, you would probably get where I get my ideas from haha.
(Just some ramblings when thinking of fedor, will be flawed)
As Mr. Slack points out in a few newer articles: the counter puncher is vulnerable if he gets alot of feints. And Fedor pretty much did most of his best work in square rings, where it is far easier to corner the other man. And he's pretty stocky and uses mostly looping (russian) hooks...
I would say a mobile opponent who feints alot and circles a great deal would give him fits. That isn't what Rumble is at all. Or Teixeira. OSP maybe, if he steps up his game alot. I can see Cormier pulling it off. Or he goes full black fedor.
Well, pretty much we need Dillashaw to eat up to 205!
