Ok so everyone that said "Fedor hasn't fought anybody ...", "Elbows would do the job...." , "Any UFC HW could beat him ....." after watching (or reading) the Affliction results from last night where he dropped with punches and then subbed the MMAPlayground's #7 HW and former UFC Champ Tim Sylvia. Whath's your opinion now on the Randy-Fedor fight?

Mine, the same as before. Fedor takes it because of his speed and explosiveness. Randy will come with a great game plan but won't be able to execute it because Fedor's speed wouldn't allow it. Rd 1 Tko.

i really dont see where randy could have an advantage in this fight. Maybe his grecco but Fedor seems to do just as well, if not better, in the clinch. Randy would get TKO'd in the first from GnP.

Styles make fights.With that being said,despite how both their fights against Sylvia ended,it could be a really good match.

But I have to say I honestly think Fedor would humble Randy very badly.I mean did you see what Fedor did to Timmy!!!!!!!!!!!
That was the most insane thing ever.

randy did the same thing to tim, dropped in in the first few sec then took his back he just didnt fin it, so just because fedor did that i cant say omg fedor will kill him!! no thanks, imo randy vs fedor would be a great fight. i still give randy it in a cage tho

Yeah that was the major difference.Randy didn't finish and the fight went for 5 rounds.

i think Randy Couture is one of the best stories in mma over past 2 years,

BUT i also believe he could be one of the most overhyped fighters in the last 2 years

Yeah you can look at Randy either way.On paper,winning 2 heavy-weight bouts then vacating the title seems a bit lackluster,but it's the story behind it that makes it so great.He came out as the underdog against Tim and shook him up for 5 whole rounds.Then Gonzaga comes out and brutalizes CC and everyone is like" Look at that F*$$ing monster!!!" He'll kill Couture!
And Randy comes out and makes GG look like a sloppy ametuer.

Randy has only been knocked out by Chuck Liddell. AA has been KO'd by Timmy twice! His chin is less than spectacular. If somebody is going to get KO'd in the first it's AA. Randy has a superior chin and stylistically is less likely to stand with Fedor. Not saying Randy wins that fight but I doubt he gets KO'd right away, I would bet on a submission in the later rounds.

Nog is miles above Randy [who Randy ducked] and Fedor made him look B level on 3 occasions. Now I can see how Randy wants to beat the best and retire on top and never have to prove himself again but Randy has almost zero chance except a freak cut or injury. I cant help but cheer for Randy to be KO'd, he just dosnt deserve a fight with Fedor, he didnt deserve many of his title shots and he dosnt deserve this.

Barnett TKO'd Couture as well

Kind of sick of people saying Arlovski's chin is bad, If you get him on the button by Rizzo and Sylvia your going down end of story, if anything his head movement and strategy wasnt as good back in the day not his chin.

EDIT: Oh yeah and Ricco made him tap from strikes which is basically a TKO

HE was ko'd twice by timmy? can you link the two fights for me? as far as i know, he was ko'd once by timmy and that was because he rushed in after rocking tim. The more experienced AA wouldnt do that, which was shown in the 3rd fight between them. Don't get me wrong , i think fedor would anihilate AA . I just think he would put up a more competative match then randy.

I did see this fight not even being close. Im pretty sure I pick 1st round KO for Fedor.
Anyways, did you notice how both Couture and Fedor did the same exact thing to Sylvia in the beginning. The only difference is it took Couture one hit to bring him down and Fedor was able to sink the sub unlike Couture.
This fight doesnt change my opinion as Sylvia shouldnt speak for all UFC fighters as he isn't to talented of a HW (IMO).
Fedor/Couture is the best HW out there right now but I dont mind seeing Fedor fight AA or Barnett first since Couture is wrapped up with contract problems

I am a Couture "nuthugger" love the story love the fighter..... just dont think Fedor is a good matchup for him....

ON the other hand i feel it would be a fight I would PAY to see-

Matchups are everything- Id love to see Fedor Arlovski- and Fedor barnett next-

I think Couture knocks out arlovski or GNPs him into a bloody gut pile.

Lol you think Randy has a better chance in the striking game then AA

Good work trying to put the mma math in there, but you forgot to mention that Randy has been TKOed by a JJ guy that has poor striking, and Andres strking game is world class.
