    Again, as long as Dana White is Pres of the UFC, he will not sign Fedor based on his ego. It started out that he wouldn't sign him because of Fedor's desire to compete in the Sambo championships in Russia. But because Dana is such an ass, he has talked too much crap on Fedor to ever allow him to come in and clean up on the UFC's weak heavyweight division.

    I think Frank is right. Its time for Fedor to come into the UFC. It's time for Dana to be a man and apologize to Fedor for all the tasteless comments and sign Fedor to record high paying multifight UFC contract with an immediate title fight. Dana has fermented so much hate towards Fedor among his immature and informed adolescent clones that Fedor would be the biggest draw in MMA history the day he signs him. Dana is a classless hack and it's time he did the right thing for the sport, the fans, the ufc and his own legacy.

    mir would probably submit lesnar again. mir's striking is also very much improved. lesnar really only brings power and wrestling to the game. fedor is just unpredictable. mir is right that fedor is an exceptional athlete. it's so paradoxical beacuse fedor has a beer belly, but if u ever watch his training videos, he is a machine.

    mir should not mention fedor he hasn't earned this fight yet, he should worry about lesnar cause i don't think he is winning that fight.

    i like the way mir sez if fedor wants to gain evrything come and take the ufc title, fedor has said for a good few years he will fight in the ufc, its the ufc who wont give him the contract b-cos they dont respect other fighters who want to compeate in other sports, if they get fedor they want him all to there selves and not to compeat anyware, and respect for fedor he wont stop doing what he is passionate about just to be someones cash cow true sportsman.

    i think its pretty funny mir says if fedor wants to gain everything come take the ufc title when mir himself doesnt even have it. mir's gunna get put to sleep at ufc 100. Brocks a perfectionist and im sure he's been doing sub defense for hours every day. i dont see mir hurting brock on the feet and i dont think brcks gunna get subbed again. frank was given a gift fighting brock so early. All i see when Mir talks is Vera knocking his head off.

    If Fedor was in the UFC he would not have been able to have fought Syliva, Arlovski or Barnett,t so it is mostly a good thing he is not in the UFC. If Fedor signed with UFC he will not be able to fight Overeem, Werdum or Antonio "big foot" Silva, so for me there are just as many good fights for Fedor outside the UFC.

    It's not about where you fight it's about who you fight, and as a free agent Fedor can test himself just as much or even more outside the UFC leauge.
