“I think the Emelianenko myth is bigger than who he really is in MMA history. This is not a story. I don't consider Fedor the greatest heavyweight of all time.

This title belongs to Stipa Miocic. Belt defenses and a long reign as divisional champion put him in first place. But Fedor is one of the five strongest heavyweights, ”ESPN quotes Cormier.

Recall that last weekend, 46-year-old Emelianenko suffered a crushing defeat from Ryan Bader and announced his retirement. The fight headlined the Bellator 290 event in Inglewood, USA.
