You really are only as good as your last fight



Saturday night proves how fickle MMA fans and media are. Fedor has 28 consecutive wins and he loses two fights in a row, and at 34 the media cries for his retirement... two losses, the first being a fatal mistake and the second a loss to a much larger and underrated opponent whose most recent loss was ironically to the same man who gave Fedor his first real defeat.

I could go on and on about how this loss doesn't meant Fedor is done, we saw him mounted taking punishment for 4 minutes and he remained resilient and attempted a submission. This isn't a case of luck running out or age catching up... this is simply an inevitable part of the fight game. In a sport where every minor incident is blown out of proportion I expected nothing less than this reaction, but I wholeheartedly disagree.
