In the warm yet windy climes of an Auckland spring, the man rumored to be stepping into a cage with Fedor Emelianenko arguably the best MMA fighter at present, on a M-1 Global card come next February; melted to the reception he received on New Zealand soil.
The "Snowman" Jeff Monson full of praise during in an interview with Roguemag.com, cited the "very good possibility of fighting the Russian" and also said he is "in the process of working through things with M-1."

Fedor will whoop Monson up soon than Rizzo won over Monson at Art Of War 3.

This should be a nice tune-up beating for Fedor......If Monson couldnt even compete with Big Tim i dont see anyway he can win this fight........

at least fedor is going to get decent competition now, but he will still win easy.

How is Monson good competition????? This is what we're all complaining about! Monson isn' t top 10, prolly isn't top 20. This is another example of him not fighting guys he should. You're telling me that they don't know Barnett is the fight everyone wants? This is bull, I hope Monson wins just to skrew w/ everyone's heads. Of course I know that won't happen.

I think it's a good grappling match up for Fedor. I'd love to see the fight, personally. Of course I'd love to see Fedor fight anybody.

I will admit, though.. that it will be a shame and a mark upon both fighters records if Fedor and Couture never get to fight. The sad thing is here you have two fighters who want to fight each other, and now the sport has changed so much that it is impossible for the two to fight. Just crazy.

would fall out of my chair laughing if fedor lost this fight. i dont see why m1 would pay him that amount of money to have him fight monson. monson is a good fighter but not a top 15hw imo. its a high risk low reward situation. he is supposed to win. put him in there with a top 10 guy worthy of this. lost 2 of his last 3 fights and gets rewarded with fedor??

Tim beat him bad, you can only believe Fedor dominates him since his whole game is grappling and he's better at it!!!

Monson was ridiculous against Pedro Rizzo.

he was out of shape completely, he was breathing heavy after only 1 min in the fight, he was defenceless , and it was the easiest fight of his carreer for Rizzo !!

it it almost like M-1 are simply scipted there fight to be sure that there millionaire win the fight !!

also, if Monson was announced to fight Couture instead of Fedor, i would call Couture myself to tell him to not even think about fighting a guy who is nowhere close to what he was at his best !!! I can't call Fedor because i don't speak russian !!!

It's a great way to shake the ring rust off since he hasn't fought in almost a year and he if cna dominate him like he did to Big Nog, MMA LOOK OUT!!! He's Back.......
