It's probably a good idea not to ask Brock Lesnar about fighting Fedor Emelianenko anytime soon, if at all. He simply says there's nothing to talk about until when (if) Fedor signs with UFC, then he can talk about it.

I'M sick of people asking Brock that. I can only imagine how sick he is of it.

What's the point?

Simple. Apparently a lot of people want to see Fedor vs. whoever is UFC HW Champion at the moment. We heard it all the time with Couture, now it's Brock's turn. And if Mir beats Brock again we'll probably hear Fedor-Mir questions.

I don't blame Lesnar, there is no reason to discuss this fight untill Fedor comes to the UFC, and lord knows what he would do to Lesnar!

Of coarse there's reason. If you want Fedor in the UFC the media and the fans need to pressure everyone (including almighty Lesnar) about Fedor fighting in the UFC.
If everybody just dropped the subject do you think Fedor would end up in the UFC...NO.
If Fedor comes to the UFC the only reason will be because the fans want it.



Plus Lesnar knows if he fights Fedor his lack of talent and experience wil be exposed even more than it was with Mir.

Understood, but I'm just seeing it in Brocks point, Fedor is not over there so don't worry about, Lesnar would probly fight Fedor but he would get killed.

They also don't want to answer truthfuly, because they would say "I would lose" who wants to admit that.

Mabeys he just wants to avoid the drama. I dont like Brock, but Id handle it in the same way he is. When Randy wanted the fight there was pressure coming from everywhere on Fedor to sign, and he didnt, so whats the point in Brock doing it. He knows if Fedor was to ever sign the fight would have to happen, but that aint happening any time soon, so he should just keep his mind on Frank for now.

I disagree with that. About 95% of the fans who know about fedor were desperate for him to come to the ufc when pride was bought out. We were heart broken every time a deal fell through and most of us became so frustrated with the prospect and let downs that we stopped reading articles about how fedor 'might' come to the ufc. We've been about as excited and desperate as we could be for fedor to come to the ufc, and he and his management have made it clear that their decisions on when and where to fight are not based on what the fans want.

If everybody dropped the subject, would fedor end up in the ufc... maybe, but if fedor comes to the ufc, it wont be because the fans want it.

I actually agree with Lesnar, it's pointless to create buzz for a fight that may never happen. How messed up is it that the greatest fighter in the sport's history may never step into the octagon?

Brock is trying to train the reporters to ask him questions about his next real opponent. Previously it was Couture, now it's Mir. Fedor questions are just a waste of everyone's time and energy at this point. There's a legit fight to hype at the moment.

i would add the UFC as well as his management making it clear that their decision on when and where to fight is not being based on what the fans want.

I think it's much more simple than that. Lesnar likes to run his mouth to get attention on his upcoming fights. He can say this or that about Mir, and people can look for themselves and see that Frank has some weaknesses. Fedor, not so much. This just shows the showmanship of the UFC. If Brock was really that confident in himself, he wouldn't care where Fedor wanted to fight him, he would go. And I'm sure Dana would oblige so long as Zuffa gets part of the proceeds.
