Rickson would be insane to take that fight...he's built such a legacy, he's almost mystical. He shouldn't risk that by taking on Fedor at his age. Maybe 10 or 15 years ago. But hey, I'd watch!

MMAYOU.com: What do you think of Dana White?
This person talks a lot, sometimes rashly without having thought before.



This was pretty humorous.

I read in one interview that Rickson considers himself basically retired, but would condsider fighting once again if the opponent and money was right. I was thinking Sakuraba in japan. I would hate to see him take a beating from Fedor.

Fedor is a hella class act , i like how he states TIM SYLVIA as one of the greatest fighters of all time , If im not mistaken Tim just dissed on Fedor not 2 long ago in a past interview , and yet Fedor still has the class to respect Sylvia even after that , i think his calm and respectful attitude is one of the things that really makes him a truely outstanding MMArtist

is that a typo or was his answer to "You stated Mirko was your toughest fight in Pride, why? And would you give Mirko a rematch?" actually "I don't think Mirko was the strongest fighter. I just say he was of the toughest"

if so that is funny, doesnt want to admit mirko was the strongest after its been shown UFC guys are as strong and stronger

the thing i dont like is he doesnt seem to knowlegdeable in what goes on in the sport, you would think if he loved the sport that much he would enjoy watching all the ppvs and shit

he says he cant say anything about his next opponent yet, does this mean there is an opponent lined up for Fedor!?!?!?

Fedor has more class and respect in his little pinky finger than Dana White has in his entire body.

Fedor is a fighter who embodies the true warrior spirit, he lets his actions do the talking.
