    I predict the rest of the postings will go something like this…

    People will argue if Fedor is the best or not, and pick dream match-ups for him, someone will insult Dana White, people will insult each other, and Tom will post something completely unrelated to this thread. hahaha.

    All that being said, did you notice the record on the screen? They didn't list the loss, they listed that as a NC, which it should have been. I predict that if/when Fedor does come to the UFC, they'll do the same to hype it up and make that the biggest PPV the UFC has had to date.

    When Bas asked Fedor whos your favorite fighter, he said, "I like watching Josh Barnett". Does anyone belive that? I don't really. I hope Josh kicks Fedor's ass, i just want someone beat his ass, once at least. But i'm goin to predict Fedor to win via TKO or by KO.

    when was the last time Fedor fought anyone as young, fast, strong AND hungry as a guy like Brock? Who wasn't a FORMER ufc champ? IF he makes it past Barnett…

    I gotta say, I really like his attitude. I think the mentality of the game is what would beat Brock if he fights fedor.

    fedor says he doesn't care about his legacy or that the ufc terms are not agreeable to him. stop being a selfish bitch. lorenzo fertita already said that fedor can go compete in his annual sambo. he just needs to fight exclusive to the ufc. that's not hard to ask, IMO. that's like peyton manning playing QB for another team in another league and then flying back to play for the colts in the superbowl. fedor is a fucking moron. he needs to sign with the ufc, wipe out the HW division, meet anderson silva at catchweight, and then solidify his inarguable title as the GOAT. people are getting inpatient with fedor. yes, he is a nice guy and commands alot of respect, but he is starting to look like an asshole. dana already said on multple occassions that he wants fedor in the ufc, but have not been able to meet him in person due to fedor's management team in the way. plus, after fedor beats barnett, who is left in affliction? and affliction said the affliction III show is their last show. so where is fedor going to go? strikeforce to face alistair? come on now. dream to fight ishii? please. cro cop is coming to the ufc. roger gracie is supposedly coming to strikeforce or ufc over from japan. shane carwin and cain are both up and comers with good credentials. brock is just a barrel chested beer drinking bastard that needs to get his mouth beaten shut. please fedor, come to the ufc.

    I respect Fedor and the way he fights and think he's one best of the fighters in MMA, if not the best. But, i don't like him for some reason. I think it's because everyone thinks he's unbeatable and i think that Fedor thinks he's unbeatable. He is a little bit of a cocky SOB. I guess i would be too, if i was as big a badass as Fedor.

    But, i want to see Emelianenko take on better opponents every fight, not someone like Mark Coleman, Lindland or Hong Man, WHO??? He has fought better competition recently, but honestly Sylvia sucks balls now and Arlovski has a glass chin. Barnett will be a step up in competition, it will be interesting to see who will win. But, I'm predicted Fedor will win.

    Fedor Nut huggers…aren't you worried about your boy getting fat and happy(figuratively speaking), content even…fighting subpar opponents so much that he's not gonna be ready when he actually does get tested by someone legit?! That would be MY worry…at least until we see if he can take Barnett even…if it hasn't already happened…..tick tock tick tock…better carpe diem old boy!

    derek you have so many things in that statement that are not true i don't no where to start. i think we might see him in the ufc one day but if not oh well.

    hmm zack that is the shittest post i've ever seen on here, imagine your favourite fighter taking a knee to the face on the floor then getting a massive cut unable to fight and gets a loss…..

    you still think that is a loss? didn't think so.

    Fedor is a person…. he does what he wants, for all those who threw AA and TS out as "nobodies" are idiots, when in the UFC Dana rep'd them as the most amazing fighters ever.

    back to Fedor fighting Brock. i don't want to see this fight for the reason that Brock will take Fedor down, smother him to death and prob grind out a win, this is NOT MMA….

    MMA = Mixed Martial Arts

    Wrestling = Sport.

    Boxing = Sport.

    all being said, i don't want UFC in the UFC he's a good guy and doesn't deserve to be treated like shit.

    oh and Overeem is still out there to fight fedor.

    oh and nice post Cobra.

    So you think Fedor is a cocky SOB. LOL he just said he wants ppl to remember him as a regular guy. Yeah thats really cocky. Man ppl are stupid.

    People forget what dana said to fedor . We dont need yu yu need us :S what kinda cocky thing is that to say and affliction pays there fighthers the ufc dusent.

    Fedor gets like 1mil per ficht in the ufc fuck no that he wil get that he's already a legend he dusent nobody's aprovel for being real or not .

    Mike, that was the dumbest post I've ever seen. Thats what fighters are trying to do each other out there, cut them, to end the fight and win somehow, u Jackass. Thats why if you cut badly enough, you lose. What should they do, not give them a lose on their record and make the fight a draw or something? Thats f*cking stupid. Come on Mike i thought you knew a lot about MMA, clearly you dont'.

  18. Ryan S

    July 15, 2009 at 9:19 pm

    I like how you can't be a fan of ANY fighter on this site because that makes you a nut hugger. I also like dogs. Does that make me a dog nut hugger?

    Mike, your pretty dumb thinking for Sylvia is still good. Have you seen Tims's last 3 or 4 fights over the last coule of years, he's got his ass kicked, bad? So yes, he does suck. And Arlovski is the only person Fedor has fought in a long, long time thats decent. But, we all know about his glass chin na dso did Fedor. All the others were chumps (Hong Man, Lindland an old Mark Coleman and Zulu). Come on, do you really think that he's faced the elite in his recent matches he's had? He hasn't, sorry.

    Sylvia is no longer relivant, Once a great heavyweight, no longer. AA I think still has the stuff to b a top heavy but he needs to focus and stop fucking around with boxing, if you get knocked out in MMA your gonna get knocked out in boxing. I don't think that Fedor is cocky, it seems its more of his handlers and that he doesn't completely understand english (not a joke). I do think we will see fedor fight brock or at least in the ufc but like dare I say boxing it will b past his or both of their primes and no one will really care about the result, a huge randy fan but I am really excited about upcoming fight with nog cuz they are both on their last leg. Ryan S I do agree about the nut hugger thing, it is a bit ridiculous but some guys like me get fuckin tired of hearing about the holy trilogy brock, fedor, and kimbo. I like to watch lesnar fight, i dont really care if i ever see fedor fight cuz until hes in the ufc it doesnt really matter to me, and kimbo as i am sure we will find out soon enough TUF 10, is still a huge joke and selling tickets based basically on bar fights. I am a huge Kenflo fan no one gives me shit because no one has an opinion either way about him, if he beats bj and is the champ I am sure all the keyboard tough guys out there will start talking shit about him and me. I don't think you can be a dog nut hugger? at least not legally.

    Cobra, I LOL'ed at your post predictions haha…and your pretty much right minus the thread crasher tom…he's probably not doing it in spite haha

    who said fedor is cocky wtf are u talking about he was so humble in that video. the funny thing is its his humbleness that makes people angry they think its fake or something. people get angry that he doesnt feel he needs to prove anything. him and brock are a lot a like they could care less what the people think and just fight because its what they like to do.
