Don't even have FSN but I seem to have every other channel out there. Oh well, hope Fedor gets beats just so they'll stop over hyping him.

Even if he gets beat(which he won't), Fedor is not overhyped. He is without question the best heavy in mma. He will prove it again against AA.

Fedor is going to tear through AA like a tornado tearing through a trailer park. Right now whether people want to see it or no he is the best pound for pound fighter in mma. He will be remembered as the best MMA fighter of all time.

Im writing because I just happen to catch a tv show well part of it about Fedor (im not going to try to spell his last name!) called "Baddest Man on Planet" I think it was, reading above may I ask- are you guys saying Fedor is actually scheduled to find heavyweight Arlowski? Has a date been set? Last I knew it was going to be either Couture or Lesnar, what happened to that?
I havent really been paying attention but id appreciate any feedback.
Anyway the main point is to state WHO ELSE I believe are the greatest fighters alive today, active or not, also the only guys with a decent chance of beating the mighty Fedor (with lady luck on their side as well!). Ok, there are only a small handful of really great fighters imo, though I cant spell half their names and in some cases cant even recall the name, here i go listing them the best i can, or at least indicating who they are, in no paticular order:
Fedor of course, Couture, that Brazilian champ from Pride now in the UFC with the long scar on his side (name escapes me at the moment), the UFC is it light-heavyweight champ also brazillian I believe lanky with great kicks and knees (also name escapes me), the younger Shamrock brother I think its Frank- also the guy who kicked and broke his arm wasnt it last year in that upset, he's one of the best I reckon though I know very little about him Id say he's one of the few who could possibly beat any others, lets see who else is there….
So there Ive named the six best fighters in the world each capable on a good day of beating any other despite size or weight, there may be one or two others Id add to this short list if I think about it a bit more.
As far as who I think has the best shot of beating Fedor, thats a tough one, Lesnar has little chance, neither does Arlowski thats a joke, Im inclined to think that the Brazilians I described above both currently winning in the UFC would be most likely to be able to beat Fedor, though i probably wouldnt bet on it! Id probably bet on Fedor, at least for the first time he fights any of the top 5 I listed. After seeing how they fight together I might then change my opinion.
You got to remember, friends, that the fights are about making money, our money, so even though the organizers know Fedor is going to win they pretend they believe it will be close. Truth is when it comes to Fedor it wont ever be close UNLESS he has at it with the fighters I indicated above- the younger Shamrock or the two UFC Brazilian champions, these are the best and if you ask Fedor I reckon he'll agree with me.
His request to fight Couture was with an understanding that he could certainly beat him- but he knows these three other guys are probably more of a threat, though he may not admit it publicly. I can tell so surely he can tell.
And Im a very good guesser!

dont mean to burst ur bubble gudgessor but one of those brazilian champions you are talking about with the scar im guessing nog isnt champion anymore he just got totally dominated by frank mir. frank shamrock couldnt beat fedor it wouldnt be a toss up and i dont think fedor would say shamrock is one of the best 6 fighters out there lol. have u ever heard of GSP or BJ Penn? u didnt even mention them. Lesnar just beat one of those 6 fighters u named to become the ufc heavyweight champion by knockout over randy couture and Cung Le is off making movies. Mind blower huh? lol

I'm guessing Gudgessor still thinks it's 1994?

i saw the show on fsn. i was very impressed by fedors daily schedule of training. i've been on the fence about fedor. it's not that i don't think he's the greatest hw because i do think he is the best, but i haven't been much of a fan. i've been wanting him to get beat because i'm such a couture fan. BUt i have to say that Fedor has won me over, especially if he dominates aa this weekend. I'm a big fan of aa also, i'm hoping for an epic fight that propels affliction into great things.
I do think that frank shamrock is still one of the best fighters in the world but he is not a heavy weight. Fedor would break his neck, lol.

I saw the show and loved it. I have been a fan of Fedor ever since I saw the Fedor vs. Heath Herring fight. There is no doubt that he is the greatest fighter on the planet or who has ever competed in combat sports. He is the most complete fighter and the only undefeated fighter (ya I know he lost due to a cut, watch that fight and the rematch and tell me if you think he should have a blemish on his record). Furthermore, let me drive home the fact that Anderson Silva has never been considered LB4LB king. Only until UFC's marketing machine started touting him as the LB4LB king did people (new MMA fans) start agreeing. The fact is, mma fighters and long fans of the sport all know that Fedor is truly "The Last Emperor". How can anyone watch a Fedor fight and not instantly fall in love with his animal like agression and uncanny ability to quickly adapt to bad situations. If you stand with him there is a good chance your going to sleep, if you challenge him on the ground, there is also a good chance that your head will be bouncing of the canvas or one of your limbs are going to be messed up (submitted). Bottom line, I'm a fan of Fedor because I love mma. Oh, one more thing. If you decide to try to clinch with Fedor, your taking a trip, that is of course if you don't get knocked out while trying to get that close.
