    Sounds like a great card so far. Sylvia will be Fedor's first true test in some time. We will see if Fedor is still the best heavyweight in the world. After hearing of this fight being announced, it makes me want to see Nog fight Couture and see the two winners fight to determine the absolute best in the world at heavyweight. But, that is highly unlikely to happen.
