Its taking place in Russia, so it doesn't need to have a weight class. I have a DVD of Igor Vochacyn fighting Paul Varleans, Fred Floyd and John Dixon, none of which weight less than 300lbs.
I think all those guys are very unskilled. We could go back to legends like Igor, Royce, and Frye fighting huge guys. I think the difference lies in the fact that Lindland's fighting Fedor. I would bet Lindland would also beat those guys Igor did, he's very skilled. This is Fedor, the consensus IMO gretaest MMA fighter in the world. I think we all want to see Lindland vs A. Silva, Hendo( on same team so probably not),Kang , Filho, Franklin and other's. I guess I hate to see him go the way Wandy and Sakuraba did. He has nothing to prove fighing HVYweights IMO. I just want to know who the best middleweight in the world is. To me, he's doing this for money , recognition, and because he knows no one will dis him for losing to Fedor. However, if he really fight's the whole contracy at HVY he's bound to lose some fight's to guy's who aren't that respected. What's Monson / Top-10 to 20? Or Alek's 10-15? Zentsov 15-25? Rizzo? Any of these guys should beat him IMO. I guess I just hate to see such a great fighter wasting some of his prime years. It's not like he's builtl ike Coutre or Tanner. Lindland and Hendo just look like normal guys strengthwise to me. I guess we can just hope that some other great middleweight's get in their with him.
