Unless they are about Brock Lesnar ever having the skills to compete with Fedor.

Well it could be a three way match between Brock, Silva and Fedor that way maybe the match will last more than a minute....

Fedor Emelianenko (hmmmmm, what is the biggest spotlight money fight I can get in the US without actually having a challenge?)

I never really blamed Fedor before for taking creampuff asians with big names because there was a demand for the matchups and I was thinking, well don't blame Fedor, he's being pressured into these fights with the money and all the attention.

I take back everything. Calling out a barely prime 1-1 NCAA wrestler with few other skills is pretty shitty. (OH, LOOK!!! HE IS FAMOUS IN AMERICA AND HAS ALMOST 0 CHANCE OF WINNING!!!!! YAY MONNNEEEYYYY!!!!)



I can not express my disappointment.

Did you even watch the damn video?????????

Fedor never called out Lesnar.The woman asked him what he thought of Lesnars last fight,and Fedor said Lesnar has skills and has a very bright future in the sport.He then said Lesnar would be an intersting fight to him and it's a fight he would take if given to him.

I'll second that. Watch the video if you're going to comment on it, don't just read the headline because more often than not they're misleading.

I've heard he's going to have a tv show, and the winner of show will fight Fedor and get to train at the Red Devil Sport Club. Has anyone heard if it will have a translated version of the show?

He didnt watch it. Surprised he knows who Fedor is...
Fedor is always class and is everything a fighter in this sport should be. He is a true ATHLETE who is there to compete. Yes, he took some freakshow fights, but that was well after he had proven everything.

Fedor shouldn't be talking about fighting Brock at all. Nuthuggers gotta dis the guy who doesn't like their fighter tho

Fedor shouldn't be willing to take that fight, why would he be. It wouldn't be interesting at all. He's famous but that fight still wouldn't sell many if it wasn't under the UFC banner, just like tim wasn't a big enuf name to help the card that much.

Fedor is only gonna break Brocks arm... COME ON theres at least 30 fighters that would be more deserving + a better matchup then Brock for Feds... i wanna see him against Barnett/Arlovski/Couture next ...i tought the Freak show period was over ......anyway pretty shitty call by fedor!!

For the people who didn't watch the video, he never said this. But he said he is very impressed with Brock and said that he has a bright future in the sport.

Fedor isn't stupid, he knows talented fighters when he see's them. And sure, he may have only beaten one decent opponent, but lets be honest, this guy, brock, can give alot of problems to some real fighters.

I like brock alot but he is not good enough to face fedor yet. It will be along time before he does face fedor too.

Sad to see so many people commenting without watching the video. He called no one out and was pure class. The reporter just asked a bad question during the post UFC 87 hype. It would have been a dick move to disrespect her honest question...and he answered it in the best way possible. Give him a break.

Funny but if Couture didnt get Fedor to the UFC, hopefully Lesnar will. I just hope he doesnt some how lose and cause the biggest upset ever and leave these forums full of Lesnar nuthugging posts for the next 10 years

If you don't understand, watch the video again. And again and again until it sinks in. Or don't and keep making icon posts.

PWNED!!! I swear that there are people who just look at the titles and if they don't like the fighter it's about they search the other comments for something to rag on the fighter about. Get with it. Plus Seanfu... so you're saying that Fedor fighting Japanese with no chance of winning but provide a draw is acceptable... but doing the same thing in the US is not? How in the world does that make sense?

My guess is you have always blamed Fedor, and that you look for anything to flame him about.

It makes me laugh at the guys that are flaming him. If he answered that he had no desire to fight him because Brock it's good enough, you all would have said either:

1. He's scared of him or
2. He's disrespectful

After PRIDE went under and he refused to be owned (as opposed to employed) by UFC, he didn't have many options. He took some freak show matches to get paid and keep somewhat active. I'm just glad he has some competition again.

I know this... if Lesnar tried any of the antics he did with Herring against Fedor he would lose an arm. Fedor is a class act and while I don't have a problem with what Lesnar did, some fighter down the road is going to try and teach him a lesson by finishing the next sub he gets caught in.

I always enjoy hearing Fedor speak. He's a class act who never disrespects any of the athletes and for that matter doesn't engage when Dana White makes dumbass remarks about fighters and their ability because they aren't signed with his organization. If Dana White had half of Fedor's class more fighters would want to sign and for that matter finish their contracts with him.

Lol funny everyone was saying Fedor shoulden't take it, Brocks an easy walk through, how about Randy taking it? What's the difference?

Man, when are people going to learn that these headlines are answer to questions that are asked by a reporter?

If a reporter says "what do you think about a fight with so and so" and the fighter responds "well so and so is a great fighter with a lot of talent and great potential, I would be honoured to fight him" this does not constitute a fighter "calling out" another fighter.

What Jeff Monson did to Kimbo is "calling out" a fighter. Any time a reporter asks one fighter about another fighter everyone acts like the guy posted a video on youtube of him calling the guy's mom fat or something. What's he supposed to say? "Nah, I'm just way too good for Brock Lesnar, that fight would be a joke, lol good question, stupid!"

He's being respectful, wow. He could have said brock descended from heaven on a golden chariot and people would find a way to call it mudslinging or say that he's calling him out.

Fedor is a class act, and he ain't a bad fighter either
