Tito says Fedor isn’t one of the greatest ever because he never came to the UFC

“He’s not one of the greatest ever; he did great in Pride but he chose not to come to the UFC and he never fought in the UFC. You can’t be considered one of the best — much less the greatest ever — if you didn’t fight in the UFC. Pride isn’t the UFC and the places he’s been since Pride aren’t the UFC. Everyone who came from Pride to the UFC got stomped.”

Fedor Emelianenko has already heard much criticism after his third loss in a row, at this past Saturday’s Strikeforce event, where he was defeated by Dan Henderson. So, it couldn’t be long before The Huntington Beach Bad Boy, Tito Ortiz, jumped on the bandwagon. But what do you guys think? Is Fedor’s career only average and not the greatest merely because he didn’t fight in the UFC? Leave us your thoughts!

    He was the greatest heavyweight pride fighter there ever was.  That’s all that can be really said.  He clearly is not the best in Strikeforce, and most certainly would not be the best in the UFC.

I think his handlers gambled on trying to make as much $$$ as they could off him instead of having him fighting the best competition.
