    Good stuff. I see Fedor winning. Hopefully something can happen if he wins this and Randy gets past Lesnar and the winner of Mir vs Nog.

    good, no boxing. Yeah, this should be a good fight. I agree Oswald, I think Arlovski will put up a good fight, but in the end I think Fedor will take it.

    i'm glad they were able to set this up. i take fedor because he will push the pace on arlovski in ways he's never seen. you saw nelson get into half guard and arlovski couldn't get him off. the difference is that fedor wont lay on him he always works.

    If Nog wins the four man round robin for the ufc title. he would prolly face fedor for the fourth time one way or the other. otherwise phuk it lets see Silva vs Fedor lol…..

    Arlovski is going to get beat into the ground. Fedor is going to get him pregnant.

    i fear for AA. i feel like fedor will just run through AA like he did to tim sylvia.

    NICE!!! its very hard to tell whose going to win. Its way more better than sylvia vs fedor. I'm hoping fedor's next fight would be barnett then couture.

    I love it, this will be great for the sport. I hope more fighters leave the UFC so we can see Affliction or other MMA organizations start giving a crap about their fighters. Cash is King. Fedor in 3.

    You are right, Silva. UFc pays shit and that needs to change, otherwise we will be watching all those fighters on Affliction. Let's hope they don't go overboard with the payouts though. I mean seriously, who actually thinks Tim Sylvia is worth 850,000 or whatever the fuck he was paid?

    Great matchup. Fedor will submit AA in second round after outstriking his opponent. Any chance to see fedor is great news. I think Barnett is a much more difficult fight for Fedor. Barnett has the perfect skillset to beat him. Silva is right about fighter pay but I don't think the fighters will have to leave the UFC to get paid for very much longer. It looks as though Affliction is going to have the staying power to drive the pay up by increasing market penetration. This sport is just starting to scratch the surface of elite athletes in the world. Soon there will be more talented mma fighters than there are promotions to feature them. Exciting times for all of us.

    i don't think barnett will beat fedor but i do agree he has the best chance of all the heavey weights to beat him.

    I too, want to see Fedor fight Barnett. It has the makings for a really interesting match-up. He needs to keep fighting guys that are top tier. Noguiera was 2004. Mirko(who was and is overrated) was in 2005. Since then he's fought a couple of nobodys(Hong-man Choi and Zuluzinho), a grandpa(Coleman), the fattest kickboxer ever(Hunt) and Tim Sylvia(no description needed). Oh ,I forgot about the only top tier guy he's fought in over 3 years. Lindland … the problem is that they are not in the same weight class. I think Fedor's great but he needs to keep the competition at the highest level.

    Even with all that bitching ….. Fedor by KO R1.

    i agree with you to a point jake, cro cop in 2006 was on a mission when he won the pride tournement and would have beaten just about anyone at that point he had to beat wandy and barnett to do it and tim sylvia as much as i don't care for him is a top hw and holds two wins over aa and will still beat alot of hw's out there.

    Yeah,I Agree With Basically Everyone.I Think Fedor"The Machine"Emelianenko Is Gonna Destroy Andrei"Puppydog"Arlovski,Whether It Be Standing Up Or On The Ground,Either Way It Just Doesn't Matter,"The Machine"Is Gonna Dominate,Thats What He Does.Fedor Really Doesn't Even Have A Loss,His Only Blemish Being From An Illegal Elbow That Cut Him Open & The Ref Stopped The Fight Due To Excessive Bleeding,It Shouldn't Have Been Considered A Loss At All,It Should Have Been A Loss To His Opponent Who Was So Overwhelmed That His Only Option Was Short Of Kicking Fedor In The Balls…..He May As well Have Kicked Him In The Nuts In My Opinion & Emelianenko Should Have Won Due To An Illegal Blow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Fedor Is "puppydog"Arlovski's Worst Nightmare Materialized Into Reality,A Real-Life Fred Krueger,No Better Yet Mike Myers,No More Like Jason Voorhees On A Horrible Case Of "Roid-Rage"
