just read this and figured it was worth posting. if its a 1 fight deal the odds are they can get this thing done and we can finally see fedor vs randy.

That scenario makes the most sense to me. Hell yes!

So if it DOES and that's a BIG DOES Happen and is a 1 fight deal..Id assume it would be a non-title fight.Cause if Fedor would win what would he be,Co-Champ,Intermin champ either way i hope it happens that way win or lose we could get Randy to Fight Nog and have an undisputed UFC champ..and put an end to all this Intermin champ stuff.

What about Randy's recent statement that his fight with Fedor will never happen in the UFC? Curious if he would really come back for this since it's what he claims to want.
time will tell, eh?

I think a one fight deal is very risky for Fedor.

IMO they're going to make it a title fight to unify the pride and ufc belt.. and i think the contract will have a clause that says if fedor wins his contract reopens to a 3 fight deal or something. The ufc would not take a chance of fedor coming in and smashing randy infront of all the ufc fans and then just letting randy go..
i think if fedor puts on a good fight or wins he will be signed for a longer contract and if randy wins he will then unify the belt with nog and thatll be it for him...
i really dont think the ufc would let fedor leave if he beats randy it just makes no sense from a promotional standpoint because all of the mainstream fans will be exposed to this and wil follow him to another next org..
he will be in the ufc for good

Why would he fight Randy?! Bog Nog is the HW champ. Randy is too busy doing shitty movies these days

I hoped to see fedor sign a bit longer deal but if this were to happen it would be great as well

I'm fairly sure this isn't just a one fight deal. But this is a good move by the UFC. If they get him to agree this forces Randy in a corner. Either put up or shut up. If Randy refuses this helps the UFC's court case a lot. "We gave him the fight he wanted and he is still refusing to hold up to his end of the contract." But wouldn't shock me to see Randy say no because this fight was not to prove anything it was about the big payday for Randy. Randy's hole issue is all about money nothing more nothing less.

IMO opinion it will not happen, if they sign him to a one fight deal, which fedor will agree to, then Fedor beats Nog or Randy he'll probably sign elsewhere so he can compete in Sambo, ruining Dana's claim that he has the best fighters. There are always strings attached when you are dealing with promoters.

Fedor will lose badly against Randy and Dana will be able to say " see he came and he is not as good as some internet expects anti UFC are screaming non stop " !!

Go Randy rd 2 TKO !!

You guys should combine your powers to be biased against everything.

Lol I wasn't being bias I just said I don't think it will happen because if on some wild random puch acctually takes down the unbeatable fighter in Couture or Nog then he would have Dana by the balls.

I think Dana should have Chuck fight Fedor considering that Chuck is a better fighter overall and he beat Randy decisively.

one fight deal is pussy shit, that's something randy would want because he said he would want a new contract if he came back to the ufc, so they both sign 1 fight contract's and their done. Lame, they need to man up.

if it happens, they will strip randy of the title before.

they won't risk a title for those 2 guys. dana white isn't dumb.

i told you guys so!!!!!!!

i think more important is that the one fight deal would bring randy back, dana hoping to make randy happy fight fedor then hopefully sign randy to a long term deal again, of course the fight would be a non title fight then after randy would have to fight big nog

In my opinion...one fight deals are to poop on!
It means nothing.
Fedor vs. Randy by itself doesn't prove anything.
Let's see Fedor fight Arlovski, Mir, Sylvia and Werdum.
Let's see Randy fight Arlovski, Mir, Herring, Big Nog and Werdum.
Once they have fought everyone then we can see who the real number one is.
Fedor vs. Randy in a one fight deal is silly in my eyes.
Personally I think Randy left to avoid Big Nog.

i see it that way too but i think randy needs it more cause he couldnt finish a hurt time and nog finished tim plus GG was not all the hype he was ( from the randy and werdum fight u can tell he doesnt like to be in wars) but they both still need to fight the other guys in the division. but im sure it's not a 1 fight contract prb has a clause that the winner has to defend (m sure if randy wins he'll prb retire) which i think will mainly go to fedor since randy is under contract like other said it would strenghten ufc's case. personally i see fedor destoryin randy. AA needs to be resigned to and dana ****** him plus hes comin off 3 wins ( AA v MIr since both r comin off wins so u have a # 1 plus this fight should have happend along time ago) so with AA, mir, Werdum, nog, heath, all comin off wins plus tim, vera, GG & kongo gettin back in the mix. plus where the hell is Josh Barrent and if CC can ever get back to his old self ther r plenty of match-ups that will show the real # 1 randy v fedor does not settle it other than short term and those 2 guy's legacy even thought both have great ones.

GO CHUCK




totally disagree....I think randy is better than chuck. the emotional stuff is a factor in my opinion.

Chuck fought randy when randy felt his life was falling apart. The first fight was randy fighting with his head straight. against gonzaga and sylvia randy was fighting with his life back in order.

I think fedor would destroy chuck and I think randy has a good shot at fedor if he fights him before his age actually sets in. (might be to late but that gives me a great excuse if fedor smashes randy:) )

That being said...i love watching chuck fight so if fedor does come to the ufc and and takes out nog again....and chuck wants to move up that'd be just fine with me.

HELLO HELLO HELLO

this is a one fight deal do to if Fedor wins he just beat the man who made MMA bigger last year with the upset and is somehow unbeatable ? ? ?

well I think Randy was great before this whole I want more money B S

anyway so if Fedor wins the not so avg fan now watched this Russan destroy Captin America so who can afford Fedor if they really wanted to UFC they can fork out really what he wants look what EXC was saying about him about buiding Fedors name in the US this Randy fight would be perfict!!!!

Fedor wins = new deal worth major buck from the UFC

Fedor loses = not new UFC contract hello Japan

at the time Randy was champ, Arlovski just beat Werdum. Win streak of 1,l Nog just got the decision over Herring who he already beat in Pride and Mir beat a lesser opponent in Hardonk. Randy destroyed both Sylvia who was the reigning champ, and Gonzaga. Both of which were top 3 fighters at the time. Fedor vs Randy would solve it for sure, its because there is NO chance that Nog can beat Randy, we all know that

This is a great idea, but Im sure that the clause would be if Fedor beat Randy (If it was to be him who he would fight) then he would have to stay on to defend the belt for at least Big Nog, maybe beyond that.
