I think it could take his GnP to whole new level

I was wondering that myself, I would only imagine him using elbows would spell doom for anyone he fought...

But the easy cuts from Elbows could stop a fight if he took a bad one, and that could ruin his record!

It does seem like Fedor gets cut pretty easily too.

Assuming there are those in the UFC who could get him on his back and become prone to elbow strikes.

It would be a whole new realm of GnP. Imagine Mike Bispings last GnP clinic on Sinosic but comming from Fedor "the Man-Bear" Emelianenko, it is scary to think about.

I would be scared of him getting over aggressive going for the kill and getting an elbow thrown at him from the bottom that splits him open. Wait, on second thought that would just make him end his opponent quicker.

If you look at fights like Karo / Fickett, elbows can cut pretty easily from the bottom as well... Big Nog was on the SDS or Beatdown, I can't remember... But he said, that Fedor's first loss will come due to a cut... If that's the only hole in your game, your pretty damn good, IMO

I think both god and the devil and the guy who beat the devil in a fiddling contest need to be scared of a Fedor who is allowed to use his elbows

There are not alot of fights I have seen that have lasted long enough after someone was busted open to call the match on account of an open wound. If the match was taken to the ground with elbows available, I still see only a select few being able to capitalize on it (Hunt, Big Nog, Barnett and Gonzaga are the only guys that come to mind).

Fedor would be unstoppable if he could throw elbows to the head.

I think Fedor will do great with elbows, but lets also consider the possibility of Fedor losing due to an elbow, and we all know how easily Mr. Emilianenko gets cut.

I think it was TUF4, Edwin Dewees took an elbow when he was in some guys guard and it just caused a huge cut, there was blood pissing everywhere!
