FEDOR the last emperor by urban-barbarian FEDOR the last emperor by urban-barbarian
Did some work for Fighter's Only magazine the other morning. I have a great deal of respect for Fedor and what he's brought to the sport of MMA - he's one of my all time favorite fighters. Dana White also has my respect. He's an incredible business man and his passion for the UFC has catapulted it into the mainstream consciousness. He also is a riot to listen to. He speaks his mind is constantly moving forward. Both of them are polar opposites but they both carry themselves exceptionally well in their own manner.

I was proud to draw them both - I hope they get a kick out of it.

I hope Fedor doesn't retire... Instead, I'd like to see him cut to 205 and DOMINATE! He's a force of nature and I think he's still a powerhouse. Fans are too quick to write the guy off. The HW scene has changed considerably and he's better suited for LHW, in my opinion.

Awesome work. Your style is very aggressive and dynamic. It's interesting to find a fellow mma fan on deviant art of all places. Totally agree with you about Fedor still being relevant and how he should drop down to 205. Keep slinging that ink.

Yeah, he needs to lay off the cake and trim down to a muscular 205. Thanks, BTW!

Nice work. Yeah, Fedor is a great fighter. Right now they are working out the match up with him and Dan Henderson. That should be interesting!

Don't hate me , but Fedor is overrated. plain and simple he hasn't fought and won a meaningful fight in a while and has chosen to not fight in the biggest proving grounds...the ufc.

Great artwork though.

Cheers, G$

I don't mean to be really fucking spiteful but where the fuck does someone get off by saying Fedor is overrated!?! fuck that! since when is the ufc a proving ground of any kind? they paraded brock fucking lesnar around for years as the greatest heavyweight champion in the world. Fedor went through and won 30 fights before being defeated, which still makes him the best in mma history to do that. Did Dana White paying you off? I would be surprised he's full of shit every time he promotes BJ Penn or Cain Velasquez as great fighters.
Fuck that Shit! Don't FUCK with the Last Emperor bro!

and i'm sorry that was kind of harsh

No worries! I just love the guys over all career. He's a legend. If he decides to continue fighting he should be drop down to the 205 category. Could be some wars left in him.

This is awesome! I love Fedor! Were you watching back in the Pride FC days when it was a contest between Nogeuira, Crocop, and Fedor for the crown? Nobody could touch him! Crocop would shut every other opponent down but Fedor was one of the few fighters who could make him nervous. Man I miss Pride!

Those were incredible days and incredible fights. Loved Igor Vovchanchyn too!

yea! Vovchanchyn was a pitbull. Apparently Pride shot their fights on film so they looked more crisp and epic. It's probably blasphemy to say so but I wish UFC would lose the cage and switch to film.

I'm mixed about the cage vs the ring because I was a big boxing fan prior to MMA. Film?!?!? That would be awesome! Expensive but awesome!

Yea, I was into boxing for a bit there. If you've never read The Fighter's Mind by Sam Sheridan I highly recommend it. It's a bunch of interviews about the psychology and motivation of fighters, MMA guys included.

I have a hard time enjoying any heavyweight fight, whether it's boxing or MMA mainly because I don't see a lot of style. It's mostly just big guys hitting each other. Not very fun to watch there.
The smaller guys usually have much more skill and style when they fight. If Fedor drops down then he would have a much better fights I think.

There's some great HWs out there but the lighter weight fighters are much quicker.

Sadly there isn't enough HWs to make the division interesting.

Cain, Overeem, Lesnar, Fedor, DosSantos, Mir, Werdum, Carwin, CroCop, Kharitonov, Antonio Silva, Barnett, Struve, Nelson, Schaub,Berry, Kongo, Nogueira... The division has a lot of young and seasoned talent.
