"My goal in DREAM is to fight the best. Ultimately, I want to fight Fedor. If DREAM could set that up it would be great,” he said after disposing of Kharitonov in just 1:42 of the first round.

I would give Monson a chance styles make fights and Monson is great on the ground. We have seen people get Fedor down so if Monson could do that the fight wouldn't be so one sided. A guy like Monson might just be the kind of guy it takes to bring the empire down.

this fight is not going to come about, though i'd love to see it.

Affliction has Fedor tied up, most likely, for their 3rd and final installment and at best it's going to be 6 months after that before a fight like this would take place given status quo for promotions and Fedor's management staff.

I love when guys get one win(GG, Randy, AA, Brock, ect.) people think "he's the man to beat Fedor". He's been fighting guys who are at the tail end of their career, and despite the win against Sergei(who looked out of shape and has half the wrestling Fedor does) he hasn't done much. Yeah he's a tough guy and yes he has great subs, but Fedor's probably not going to get subbed in his first mma loss.

Monson has good grappling / sub skills, but his stand up has a lot of holes in it, Fedor TKO RD1

Wow... I'm not even sure how to respond to this, I mean Sergei is a beast but if Monson truly wanted and or deserved to fight Fedor, it would have already happened by now, that being said... I don't think this would be a terrible match-up.

We all know it's never been about who deserves a fight more, its always been about what kind of money you pull in. I dont think Tim Silva deserved a shot more than other fighters but he was a $$ draw and was available so it happened, Monson was under contact with the UFC for a wile, pride died, I just think there is more that goes into it and I think Monson would fight anyone but the timing has never been right and still isn't, I dont think he would win but he is just as deserving as anyone else.

i thnk monson shuld work his way up the ranks a lil more, but like stated above, styles make fights and monson could slow the fight down to a bore feast and lay and pray, stay out of subs and possibly win a boring ass decision! prolly not, but possibly.
