Never heard about Fedor saying CC wasn't ready and was sloppy source? Fedor did say that CC was his hardest fight though
CC lost because he gassed, not because he was sloppy (although I guess you could say he wasn't ready because his cardio was not good enough). A CC with cardio would take Fedor...look at round 1.If he could keep that up for 2 more he would have Fedor dazed from left straights and combos and leg kicks, then lights out. Fedor would definitely not be taking him down nearly at will.
What I don't get about Silva is why didn't he go for takedown? BJJ blackbelt. Could have tried to catch CC like Nog (not likely, but better chances then striking with a top kickboxer!)
I feel bad for Kongo though...he's definitely not ready for CC. He could have used some top 10 wins first (if he could capture them).
