Like the Feodr V Rickson Idea!!!!

Once Rickson is humbled.....all the dreamers would probably start banging on about how Bruce Lee was the best then!

I think those last 2 rematches would look exactly like their first fights. I especially never want to see filho dry hump Ninja for 20 minutes again.

Junior is not ready yet... In a couple of years if he steadily progress maybe... IMO it would turn out a lot like the Zulu fight.

Does he make goofy noises like Giant Silva did when he fought? Sounded like Chunk from the goonies or something.

Silva is alot more competent mma fighter than Zulu will ever be, even if Zulu does lose some weight. He's big and dangerous and considering who Fedor has left to fight in Pride he would actually make a great addition if he could win a few warm up fights in Pride before hand.

You're right bad example, I didn't mean Zulu = Junior, just think that the fight will end up the same way... IMO.

Oh yea I know what you meant. I think 90% of fighters will end up like Zulu after fighting Fedor.

I agree junior is a while off to recognizing his potential. I think he should also cut some weight , at least until 280 lb. that way he can just cut 15 lbs . of water and still make 265 to compete for a title. Being a superheavy champ doesn't seem to be that great an acomplisment. Also, I think the Pele fight was stopped to early.

Some decent matches. But I don't see Chuck going under 205 EVER. Arlovski's chin wouldn't last long w/ Mirko (you must not like Andre very much ).

If we're doing catch weights I'll throw in Chuck vs Mirko @ 215. Mirko should have a huge advantage but cutting could even it up.

i think CroCop is Better than fedor.......Fedor's striking is not so good and i think chuck can clip his good....sure fedor can take chuck down,but like chuck says "if you wanna take me down,you have to strike with me"....come on...if Fedor was as good as people say he would come out of fights untouched....fedor always comes out looking worse than the other guy(crocop beat his ass IMO..and won)
