Fedor and Couture met last week in LA for a training session, and spent 2 hours grappling together, as you can see from the pictures.

One thing that impresses me is that standing side by side they look about the same size. I always new Randy was a big guy, but I guess the myth of the almighty Fedor always made me think he'd look bigger than Randy

I think their size is part of what makes people want them to win...they aren't big heavyweights.

Yea...they also have one of Randy with the dominate position....ya know..the one he tought Team Penn on TUF 5.....

What really sucks about this fight is that there will be excuses from both sides on whoever loses.....Fedor wins in a ring...there will be the "Randy would of taken it in a cage" and vice versa....only way to make it fair is to have it in the WWE in the "Hell in a Cell" cage

Those pics are staged....I bet if you look long and hard enough you will find ones of Randy winning too. You can tell because there is no motion to the pics at all. It's just hype photos.

Actually I think its pretty cool.

You have two guys that have enough respect for eachother to practice together, fake or not. Its something that you dont see enough in competitive sports.
