Not sure if the weblink posted, as I am on my phone...and can't see if it worked right. So I also typed out the address to paste in the browser if not.

I like Thiago's answer

I wonder if it is because he thinks GSP will be a tougher fight or a easier one for him

I am thinking Tougher ..

I think he said that because if Penn wins, he will not get an immediate title shot.

Were as, if St. Pierre wins he will.

i think the tally is 10-9 in favour of penn =P

(not counting fighters who couldnt pick and not counting alves who would predict kimbo slice to win if it would mean he'd get his title shot before the next olympics)

Actually, if GSP wins this, doesn't he get to move up in weight to fight Anderson? If that's the case, then Thiago probably won't be getting a title shot for a long time anyways.

In either case, sucks for Alves. really does.

If he wins they said they might do him against anderson, but thiago will get his shot before that fight happens, so it makes a big difference for him. If BJ wins he will most likely fight florian first.

edit - thomas denny doesn't consider fedor one of the 3 best fighters in the sport?

are you being sarcastic or are you really that ignorant?

I hope that was a joke, if you're serious that would have to be probably the most ignorant thing I've ever heard anyone say with relation to MMA. I really can't tell if you're joking or not.


EDIT-

I read some of your other posts, seems like you're probably serious and the least educated person I've ever spoken to about MMA. In the last ten posts you have:

Attempted to justify Chris Leben's use of steroids and told people he shouldn't be judged for cheating, but applauded for admitting that he cheated.

Claimed that Forrest was losing to Rashad before the KO
fightmetric

and claimed that Fedor is not a top fighter and that he has only beaten "UFC rejects"


This isn't intended as an insult, but you clearly don't know much at all about this sport. You are entitled to your opinions, but they are highly uneducated. To answer your question... I would imagine that everyone except for you would consider Fedor to be in at least the top 3.
