Fedor vs Randy has to be the fight. Going through all of this to have Fedor fight Nog is NOT worth it for anyone who knows these two. It would be like Franklin-Silva 3.

I bet the UFC is going to use this to force Randy into finishing his contract. I believe him when he says that he only wants to fight Fedor before he retires. I can imagine the UFC saying, "Hey, this is the fight you wanted. We worked our asses off to make it happen. If you win this, you need to finish out your contract by facing Nog for your last fight."

If Fedor wins, which Dana has said he doesn't think will happen, then they'll have to deal with it. The UFC wouldn't be in any different situation than they are right now. But at least they would have the revenue from possibly the largest UFC PPV to date.

that will show the normal UFC fan or the Randy lovers that Fedor is the real deal and Dana will have to re-sign the best in the world
