Cain Velasquez names Fedor Emelianenko GOAT, would love to face the best

UFC heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez has named former PRIDE heavyweight champion, Fedor Emelianenko the greatest of all time when it comes to the history of mixed martial arts, adding he’d love to face him in the future be it in or out of the UFC’s octagon.

Velasquez, speaking at a recent Q&A session, answered who he felt was the greatest fighter of all time, and said:

“For me, I think Fedor. I’ve always watched him as a fighter. I’ve always looked up to him. His overall size compared to the other guys, it seems he’s always mismatched, but he always has a lot of power, he has good technique on the ground, so I would definitely love to fight him. I’m in this sport to fight the best. I want to fight the best guys in the UFC and the best guys everywhere else.”
