    Why did Sylvia and Arlovski decide to stand and trade with two guys who define 'one dimensional'. They both think that they can compete as boxers which is about as stupid as boxers thinking that they could compete as MMA fighters.

    i agree dave, i said from day one that mercer could beat tim in boxing, and it turned out to be a mma fight even worse for tim.and aa was stupid rogers had one way to beat him and aa wasn't ready for that?

    Roy – the funny thing is that it was supposed to be a Boxing match until earlier in the week. Sylvia got lucky when they suddenly changed it to an MMA match but because he thinks he can be a boxer, he supposedly agreed to keep it standing up. AA made a similar mistake but he fought a guy who isn't even a great boxer. ROgers is just a hard hitting brawler who is brimming with confidence. AA should have brought it to the ground immediately.

    On another note, this doesn't mean that either of these two guys are necessarily finished. Getting caught within the first seconds of the fight by a big head shot can happen to anyone especially when they are fighting a big heavyweight puncher. We'll see how these guys can recover from the humiliation however.

    Sylvia looks like he gained a lot of weight and looks way out of shape. when he fought in the UFc he was in bettter shape and weight around 255 when he fought

    lol tim makes ricco rodriguez look like a body builder. wtf happened to tim? its like everytime fedor beats someone it ruins their career. Mirko was unstopable till fedor gave him a beating now he seems broken. andrei goes on a tear then gets KO'd by fedor now gets KO'd again. lol and now fedor crushes tim and tim turns into the stay puff marshmallow man.

    this just goes to show the destruction that the Last Emporer causes to his opponents. Fedor would do the same to any of the UFC current, past, or even future heavy weight champions. Suck it up UFC fans the truth hurts.

  11. Shogun of Harlem

    June 15, 2009 at 8:58 am

    oh yes. I find it funny how these UFC fans bash Fedor and say this and that about him. I find it funny how they say the UFC is the best and it is for the elite of the elite. Why would Dana even consider to have Kimbo slice on the Ulimate fighter 11.

    When you think Kimbo will disappear like a fart in the wind, he seems to keep coming back. I wouldnt be surprised if Kimbo did win the TUF 11 and then i could see them giving him a title shot with Lesner. THe sad thing about it though is that all these UFC fans on this site and even Dana would be pushing that fight like it was the greatest fight to ever happen…. what a joke..

  12. culito

    June 15, 2009 at 10:07 am

    Hey Harlem and Debrin… I didn't understand what you guys were saying…. can you get Fedor's dick out of your hands so I could understand what you were writing? :)

  13. Jay

    June 15, 2009 at 10:16 am

    How about Lyoto and Fedor at a catchweight. That would be a dream match up. Brock is no threat to fedor neither is Mir

  14. TJ

    June 15, 2009 at 10:59 am

    'Shogun of Harlem'- your a piece of shit. do u have any idea what television ratings are? kimbo being on the show is all people are talking about, regarding next TUF season. kimbo is guna get his ass kicked in the 1st or maybe 2nd fight in the house…he will never fight in the UFC. and ufc IS the premier MMA league, u dumbass.. that is what, just about every mma fighter, dreams to get to. so get off Fedor's dick, and watch a real champ (Frank Mir) beat tha fuck out of lesnar on July 11

  15. Shogun of Harlem

    June 15, 2009 at 11:07 am

    TJ

    You UFC fans are a joke. TJ your a joke spewing the typical UFC talk. Frank Mir will never have a record like Fedor. It blows my mind that you can trash me for speaking the truth and then under the same breath call Frank Mir a real champ. Whatever dude.

    You talk that UFC is so great and is so superior then why would Dana lower himself to have this joke Kimbo on that fights at bbqs. Dana even said Kimbo was a joke in past interviews. So what does that say about your organization?

  16. TJ

    June 15, 2009 at 11:19 am

    kimbo is a fucking joke. dana just wants to prove to kimbo, and other fags like you, that kimbo is a piece of shit, and he'l never have a future in the UFC. and the Ultimate Fighter is not the same as being in the UFC. people on T.U.F. COMPETE for a ufc contract. and dana said that kimbo wud never fight in the UFC, unless he won his way there. and about mir and fedor…record isn't everything dude. il admit fedor is better, when he mans up, signs with the ufc, then beats sum top talent.

    guys, guys, guys…can't we all get together and agree to hate Tim and his like as ONE people?! Really, with folks out there like sylvia, herring…not arlovski quite yet…but maybe we can throw karo in there….let's all stop the myopic talk of how fedor is one half Zeus and one half superman or how the ufc is the only thing that makes any fighter legitimate…and really truly FOCUS our hatred of all things douchey…like out of shape former athletes getting paid major $$$$ for getting ktfo'd by out of shape former boxers…while some folks work for a living….HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE…. and tim is no longer a turkey but a complete and utter butterball ham

  19. TJ

    June 15, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    amen to that mw55, ur a smart man. haha

  20. dane drebin

    June 15, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    i agree mw55 well said i dont understand why people are so hateful towards eachother on here and so one sided. I like fedor as a fighter aswell as brock and Mir. i think they are all three world class. Fedor is the man and should be ranked number 1 right now but after a couple more fights he's gunna run out of competition and i hope he goes to the ufc or he might move down in the rankings. i think brock with a good sub defense game could give fedor problems. seeing how brock does against mir will tell us a lot. he is still very raw and i would put my money on fedor. Mir's chin has failed him in some fights and i dont see him matching well with fedor at all. doesnt mean he's not a great fighter. people who come on here and fighter bash good fighters dont understand the sport or what these warriors put their bodies through. people are so stupid on these sites its like if you think a fighter is good and they dont its always "get off his nuts" or "get his dick out of you're hand". how bout you stop making such homosexual comments that reflect your own gay thoughts and actually try to have a point with facts or atleast try to have an intelligent debate.

  21. Fedors Gay

    June 15, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    Fedor sucks…hasn't fought top ranked competition in years….he's overrated……..Brock would kill him.

  22. Fedors gay is GAY

    June 15, 2009 at 5:02 pm

    i agree with everything 'Fedors Gay' said. and I agree with ur name too. and 'Dane Drebin' ur a douche. and ur really gay for writing that long ass post, about nothing. no one gives a fuck about ur opinion u little bitch. go hang urself faggot

  25. steve

    June 15, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    For anyone to put Fedor as gay as there posting name is an ignorant person with no knowledge of mma and not only that but they are a Keyboard Hero. Big badass calling great fighters names b/c they know that they can get away with it. Get ver yourself and stop hating on the best HW of all times. Go back to watching wwe and shit like that. True mma fans know what fedor is and there is NO need to defend him when he doesnt have anything left to prove. He is getting older and may not fight much longer as he has said he doesnt even like to fight he just does it to pay the bills. Fedor is a awesome person. About as humble as any guy can be and yet he could smash in your face. How can you hate the guy??? Fucking haters and dana white ufc nut huggers:)

  26. derek

    June 15, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    wait fedor says he doesnt even like fighting and he does it just to pay bills, that sounds like a champ i would never root for

  27. dane drebin

    June 15, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    wow big words TJ if keyboard typing was a sport u would own that shit. you wouldnt say shit to me if you saw me in a club or on the street but keep typing big man everyone on here thinks your really tough the more childish names you write. every post you say the word "Gay" and "faggot" come out of the closet all ready and stop unleashing ur sexual frustration on the internet.

    and steve i agree with everything you said fedors undefeated besides a freak cut and has beaten more ufc champions than anyone else. people can hate but the facts dont lie.

  28. TJ

    June 15, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    Okay steve…douchebag!! how bout u quit ur bitchin, get of fedors cock, and go watch sum reruns of Pride, Dream, Affliction, or sum other low level MMA league. but when u want to see the greatest fighters in the world…ur gunna watch the UFC. but until fedor grows a pair, and steps in the octagon…he aint even top 5 in my book.

  29. TJ

    June 15, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    okay Dane Drebin…ur obviously a fucking retard. u said, -"wow big words TJ if keyboard typing was a sport u would own that shit"- but last time I checked, ur faggot ass was #3 on the top commenters list. so im pretty sure u would 'own that shit'. and i wud love to see ur bitch ass on the streets…id beat ur fuckin face in, and teach u not to talk bullshit over the internet. change ur name to 'Mr. pro keyboard shit talker' and get a life…u fucking loser

  30. dane drebin

    June 15, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    fag… douchebag… Gay… TJ your vagina is showing close your legs and grow a brain and use more than three words if ur gunna make no solid points and just say the same three retarded names over and over again. or just carry on it makes you seem very smart.

  31. dane drebin

    -i wud love to see ur bitch ass on the streets…id beat ur fuckin face in, and teach u not to talk bullshit over the internet.

    looks like you started talking the bullshit back on post 21. Nobody thinks you are tough just shut up allready.

  33. Ryan S

    June 15, 2009 at 9:00 pm

    Yeah sorry dude, but who started the bullshit? Fedor has always been argueably one of the best, but I definately think he is top 5. If Pride sucked so bad, how come pride fighters came over and took the heavyweight, light heavyweight, and middleweight belts in their first couple of fights? There is still an arguement with validity on both sides that Pride had better fighters. TJ, calm down with your shit talking because it isn't really serving any purpose here.

  36. Fedors Gay

    June 16, 2009 at 4:51 am

    If Fedor was the best why wouldn't he want to fight in the best organization with the best fighters and prove himself. Even if people do call him the best heavyweight there is always going to be a big questionmark over his head because he never fought in an elite league. Pride was the top of his competition and when pride went under a lot of these people came to UFC and weren't doing as well. Rampage has done better than almost anyone from Pride. I mean lets face it….if you put Fedor up against Brock he would get destroyed. His sheer size and strength and wrestling skill. I dont even like Brock but I'm smart enough to see this. I know its supposed to be cool to like Fedor and everyone who likes Fedor thinks there a real MMA fan because they have watched another organization other than UFC but get over your fucking selfs. This Fedor shits got to stop eventually….he doesn't fight top ranked competition. Call me a Dana White nut hugger but what the fuck am I supposed to Idolize over Affliction….a bunch of washed up UFC fighters. UFC has the best fighters….even heavyweight.

  37. roy

    June 16, 2009 at 5:05 am

    he has already proven himself going 31-1-1, you say brock would beat him and maybe he would but what do you base that off of? by his loss to mir(you think fedor can't sub people) or by taking herring 3 rounds and not finishing him(fedor destroyed herring)or by beating a 45year old.what you don't understand is fedor already beat all the best at one time know there is some new talent and some up and comers but he can't fight for ever and at this point he only needs to prove himself to newbies who don't know better, i would love for him to come to the ufc just for the ufc fans.and he has been facing the best comp recently no one was complaining before tim and aa lost, and barnett would be favored in anyfight with any ufc fighter the put him in with he is ranked #2 on every ranking that i have seen so that is the most logical fight.i like your last post it wasn't just talking shit but change your name if you want people to take your comments serious.

    TJ you got a small man complex get a grip on life and keep ya mouth closed

  39. steve

    June 16, 2009 at 5:39 am

    Fedors gay says "I mean lets face it….if you put Fedor up against Brock he would get destroyed. His sheer size and strength and wrestling skill." LMAO. Lets face it Fedors gay you dont have a clue what your talking about. How is Brock gonna destroy him? Take him down of course and pound on him. Ok he is gonna leave and arm out there and fedor is gonna grab it and submit him or Lesnars arm will snap. Lesnar is 3-1. Again 3-1. Lets wait to see how he does in his next few fights. I agree he is a very dangerous fighter with size and strength but if you are 1 dimensional you are not gonna stay at the top.

  40. jason d

    June 16, 2009 at 6:56 am

    TJ sounds like a whinny little bitch! finally out of school for the summer huh little boy? fuck hes annoying

  41. STEVEO

    June 16, 2009 at 8:02 am

    I think what all this comes down to is everyone talks about fedor as if he is god, i am actually a fan, but hes got a good challenge in barnett coming up and maybe he will eventually have no choice but to fight in the ufc. Like it or not its go to happen eventually he cant go back to japan and beat up a bunch of japanese janitors for another ten years. There are some amazing fights out there for him in the ufc and I want to see them other than barnett i really dont give a ratts ass about any other affliction heavy. Arlovski hasnt been an MMA fighter in a while, hes more worried about boxing than anything. I want to see fedor fight the ufcs big guns and then we can all stop turning every post into this stupid fucking argument.

  42. dane drebin

    June 16, 2009 at 9:07 am

    i agree steveo i think everyones beatable but fedor just hasnt been beaten and that deserves respect. it's also nice to see that there are many other people who think TJ is as big a tool as i do.

  43. derek

    June 16, 2009 at 11:02 am

    just another mma dude kinda like varner more like a big jens pulver

  44. just another mma dud

    June 16, 2009 at 11:20 am

    Yeah, Derek, I agree. Let's meet half way and say he looks like Varner and Pulver had a giant, stupid love child and then urinated on it.

  45. markito

    June 16, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    i got a lot of respect for fedor and all but lets face the facts here fellas fedor needs the ufc as much as the ufc needs fedor . i know u guys are gonna kill me on this but for fedor to ever become a house hold name he needs to sign wit ufc i kno its not about being a house hold name for fedor and his fans but wen ur rankin in at number 1 in the world and the average joe cant pick u out of a line up theres a major problem. as for the ufc needing fedor….. brock got the title and he gotta a ton of upside but hes 3-1 in mma nuff said.

  46. Fedors Gay

    June 16, 2009 at 2:04 pm

    Fedor vs Barnett????……..Who cares!!!….Barnett overrated!

  47. dane drebin

    June 16, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    couldnt agree with you more markito its a shame people in the U.S. dont know about fedor.

  48. Victor

    June 16, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    Hey Dane Drebin….Do you think Fedor is the best fighter pound for pound fighter in the world. Just wondering how you compare them to Lyoto Machida GSP and Anderson Silva…..just curious what everyones input is.

  49. dane drebin

    June 16, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    i think P4P is kind of stupid because who really knows. i would put it like this if i had to

    1.Fedor

    2.Anderson

    3.Gsp

    4.Lyoto

    i think lyoto could very well be number 1 soon but he needs a couple title defenses first. Gsp would be ranked higher but that serra loss kinda dented his place imo. Anderson's last performances could make GSP ahead of him. who knows they are all awesome fighters. i would love to see Lyoto vs fedor i think it would be awesome.

  50. steve

    June 16, 2009 at 3:45 pm

    Markito said it perfect. And yes it is very sad that most so called MMA fans(the ones that think mma is only ufc) come on here and post bad things about the best HW of all times simply b/c they have no clue about mma in general and have never seen some of the best fights and fighters of all times and simply know the big names such as Chuck Liddell randy couture and Brock Lesnar. There is no point arguing with these people b/c they are so stupid with there coments it is laughable and everyone who has ever even seen intyerviews of the fedor topic will know that Fedor is king of the HWs and most people call him nonhuman. They say he will win b/c he is Fedor. I guess the fighters dont know what they are talking about:)

  51. steve

    June 16, 2009 at 3:49 pm

    p4p was made for lower weight classes but that is boxings philosophy. MMA is different for me. If fedor weighed 155 he would be a beast still. With his sambo and if he is that fast with his hands at hw I wonder what he could do at a lower weight. It is all opinions so stop name calling to get your point across. I realize I have done this in the past but dang… Some taking it WAY to far and are obvious losers. Not naming any names. Its obvious who they are.

  52. Carl

    June 16, 2009 at 4:09 pm

    You guys all make it sound like if you like Fedor your a real MMA fan. If you dont like Fedor your not a true MMA fan.

  53. TJ

    June 16, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    Carl i totally agree with u man. some people on here (not naming any names) think they are such smart mma fans, because they love fedor. not EVERYONE likes fedor…that doesnt mean there not true mma fans. that is ridiculous to even think that. YES, i know who fedor is, obviously, but I just don't feel he is the top fighter, IMO! that doesnt mean im an idiot, that doesnt know shit bout mma, that is just MY opinion. like i said before…i think if fedor came over to the ufc, and beat a couple big names, he could definitly prove he deserves to be at the top of the mma world. But…FEDOR ISNT GOD!!!! so PLEASE quit acting like it. he is a Great fighter…but he's not 'untouchable'

  54. jake-the-snake

    June 16, 2009 at 4:31 pm

    Nobody on here thinks your a douchebag because you dont like fedor… people think you're a douchebag TJ because you cant talk like an adult and have to accuse everyone of being gay when they dont agree with you. That's why nobody takes you seriously TJ and that's why everyone ignores what you have to say.

  55. TJ

    June 16, 2009 at 5:05 pm

    the only person i ever talked shit to was dane drebin, and thats cuz he was bein a douche. then all u other fags(no offense) jumped in, and started bashin me. its cool tho

  56. jake-the-snake

    June 16, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    well you just called everyone on here fags again. if you think we are all fags then get the fuck off this site and post somewhere else. leave us fags alone and bother some other people you annoying fuck. someday a "fag" is gunna hear you talking your gay bashing garbage and put you in your place. it would be poetic justice if a big tranvestite just beat the shit out of your smartass you internet shit talker.

  57. steve

    June 16, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    What is up with all these never posted before people agreeing with you TJ? hmmm…. You say Fedor needs to come over and beat big names to be a top fighter? who does he need to beat. let me guess 3-1 lesnar,Shane carwin with 1 quality win, and 6-0 cain velasquez. These big names? My point is fedor has taken the top HWs down for years. For you to come on and talk shit about him does make you ignorant. Sorry you dont know what Pride was and how they had the top hws for years. Back when Tim Sylvia and AA were fighting for the UFC title. And when Buentello and others at his level were getting title shots. Pride was having tourneys that dont allow anyone to be dodged or matched up to benefit the champs style. The UFC as a whole org has the most and top talent by far but they dont have every top fighter. we all want fedor in the ufc but dana white hasnt even met with him in person to discuss a deal. That just doesnt sound like he is dying to make a deal happen as bad as he makes it out to be. Give Fedor a 1 fight deal like they did crocop and put him against the champ. lets see who the best is.

  58. Nichole Lesniak

    June 16, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Hey TJ – do I need to find the post where you called me a dumb bitch?

  59. Cobra Clutch

    June 17, 2009 at 12:30 am

    I'm going to write an article called "Fedor's Nuts: Why Everyone's On Them" … because you freaks just can't get the f–k off his nuts. In every posting on here, SOMEONE just has to throw in Fedor. Jeeeeeezzzzz. I agree he's the best out there, but does he have to be mentioned in an article about Sylvia and Mercer? Really??? REALLY??? There's not enough Fedor out there in the rest of the posting world?

  60. Cobra Clutch

    June 17, 2009 at 12:35 am

    I think we need Cage Today to finally have a posting method where you need to get a user name and post under your own name, with e-mail verification. That will take care of this silly multiple naming poop.

  61. Fedors Gay

    June 17, 2009 at 3:26 am

    Doesn't matter what you say Fedor will always be loved by some and have a question mark over his head by others. Personally I think he should join the UFC and have a superfight with Lyoto….he's small enough to drop to a catch weight. He couldn't handle the top competition over and over. As far as Barnett who the hell has he beat lately to be ranked so high. Completely overrated.

  62. roy

    June 17, 2009 at 5:08 am

    i don't think people are stupid for not liking fedor, i think they are stupid for not knowing how good he is.if you say he sucks i think you must be a newbie or a ufc fan, if you say you hate him and want him to lose but know he is good thats fine with me we all have our favorites.

  63. ron shaw

    June 17, 2009 at 5:15 am

    i first heard about fedor a few years ago from word of mouth. never saw his fights but some people were telling me he was unstoppable in Pride. after seeing his fight videos and not just that also his training videos. he is that damn good. he's not invincible but he is the best heavyweight in the world.

  64. dane drebin

    June 17, 2009 at 7:29 am

    its cool nichole he's a little kid just ignore him

    ya im with you roy i dont mind people that dont like fedor i just am baffled by people who think he is a bad fighter it just doesnt make sense. he's not my favorite fighter by any means but i know that he is one of the best if not the best.

  65. Clumsy Ninja

    June 20, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    I have to agree with you Dane, and Ron. Sure it's a little annoying for those who have other fav. fighters…but please. Fedor is widely considered the best WITHIN the world of fighting. His legacy within the martial arts community is assured, TUF noob-weenies aside.

    I think the UFC nuthuggers get mad, because they think we're not doing our part, to embarrass him into signing w/ UFC. That and he doesn't look the part to them, and doesn't posture, and pose like so many kids do in their bedrooms, and at least one poster here, seems to as he dreams of Brock all greased up, or something.

    anyway, back on topic.

    It has to be disheartening for these fighters to lose to Fedor so decisively. Tim in 10 seconds? ouch.

    He looked like shit for that fight, WTF? Did Pat Militage train him for that? I've never seen one of his fighters look so shit, before a fight. Maybe he jumped camp, or had a bad day (2 months). Did his training camp at the cheese factory.
