if Fedor loses to Jeff, I will laugh out loud, no offense but I think Monson is overated fighter because the hw division has no middle tier.

I like this fight it shoould get Fedor back on the right track.



Should be smooth sailing for Fedor in his home country where getting insurance for being kidnapped is the norm...

His management are having to do some serious organising to try and get Fedors credibility back eh! This should be a guft wrapped 'W' with a bow on the top!

There is no guarantee Fedor takes this fight, although my conclusion has him winning

Like the matchup, Monson is relevant enough to not make the anti-Fedor fans say he's a can.

I'm going to say that Monson has a pretty good shot at taking this fight. I'd probably say the same a few years ago. He's always been a solid heavyweight and game enough for anyone on the ground. I love watching anyone pull off north-south chokes, let alone a heavyweight.

Not a chance. Anyone that fights him(and loses) gets instant can status from the haters.

Folks can say what they want about Monson, & he may be on the back end of his career, but he will never have can-status w/ me

A bit of a yawner, but really there weren't many other choices outside of Strikeforce and the UFC. Shoud be a relatively easy bout for Fedor..his takedown defense is just too much for Jeff to overcome, and the disparity in standup is huge. Early first rd KO.

I don't like it. This fight doesn't prove that Fedor is still relevant and if he loses its a dark smudge on a record that people are already (unfairly) trying to soil.

This match-up would have made more sense BEFORE the Henderson fight but still a decent bout to get Fedor back on track.
