fedor will lose this fight he is over rated, and if he does win it will be because of a a submission, yes the big asian only has one fight but it ended in 16 second's, he is a 7"3 352lb Kickboxer, if fedor for some odd reason win it will be by submission which i doubt it, or decision witch will be very hard to stand this will be fedors tallest fighter he has foughtin in his life.



Fedor also fought semmy schilt, and he beat him up on the feet. Schilts a better kickboxer, and no fedor is not overrated.

I want to see him fight top competition too...

But to ask him to turn down the kind of money that he's getting, all to satisfy the wants of the hardcore fans, is ridiculous. I think he takes what is best for him and his family into consideration before he feels the need to prove himself to the online "experts" that fill the MMA forums.

Ever think that the streak of top notch guys that he had to fight in PRIDE got him a little worn down, and he wants to enjoy the success a little? I dont blame him. Admittedly though, I dont harbor ideas that fighters fight specifically for the fans approval though, so call me crazy...

Fedor will dominate the fight and then what, what does it prove? NOTHING.
I see Fedor going on a 7' 3" slide down the MMA ranks.

It's unbelievable that many of you miss the point.

Money.

Hong Man Choi is a spectacle. Fedor is a great fighter that the Japanese have grown to love. Entertainment and spectacle is how the Japanese MMA culture works. It's a card to make money. Get over it.

It's a feeder fight to make money. We won't see shit for awhile. Relax.

I agree with most of you.... i would like to see him fight top competition....but...

He has been inactive for a while ( talking in a promotial way, I know he can beat the sh** out of anyone) plus he's new to M-1, so I think its a good move to put him against this guy. Why?? Let say he fights Barnett and he loses... that mean M-1 wasted all this time, money and drama with all this signing Fedor situation etc..

Patience .... he'll fight some real contenders soon, he's still #1 HW ( >>IMO<<) but he's still human and need to catch up.

Geez, he's starting to get in a Silva-Liddell situation with these on-again, off-again rumors and announcements. Yet they can throw Choi at Fedor but not Lesnar? Strange.

I think that Fedor is without a doubt the best p4p fighter, but is it really too much to ask that he fights someone that could pose a threat? Hopefully this will just be a warm up match, and they manage to get a Hunt, Barnett etc. for him next, otherwise I fear he will turn into the MMA equivalent of the Harlem Globetrotters.

How are we missing the point of money?

Everyone understands fighting is a job and the best should be paid richly, but the UFC offered him over 1 million per fight base salary! Throw in bonuses and sponsors and he would be making enough money to live comfortably anywhere in the world.

I understand he wants money and he could have got it in the UFC while testing himself as an athlete and proving to everyone he is still the best heavyweight in the world.

It's a very disappointing choice he made in my opinion, and if you are going to fight out of the UFC at least fight a veteran...fight Barnett, fight Rizzo, hell he could even fight Rothwell.

But he should be in the UFC

This is sad.
