Offer him $300,000 per fight but at Light Heavyweight only. Two fight deal.

Why not, really. But anything more than that is a waste.



And have him fight Roy Nelson. Bam. 2 Birds, 1 Stone. Dana's happy either way.

Fixed.

Shit Bro, Either way.

Though i must admit Rampage v. Fedor would do great in Japan, and make me happy as hell.

There's always room for him on the Facebook prelims.



What are you talking about? Every fight Fedor has been in (even the ones where he lost) have been very exciting. Fedor could easily still be in the main event for a UFC card. I don't know why people would bitch if he came over. Every fight he is in is very exciting whether he wins or loses.

nearly 80% of his fights, win or lose, do not go to decision. nothing wrong w/ wanting to see a guy like that fight.

I wouldn't say Fedor is totally washed up BUT to say he's still top 10 and could compete against the UFC's best is borderline ludicrous...Fedor finally realizes he needs the UFC, just 1 problem, Dana doesn't give a fuck...too little too late.

I've been wanting to see Fedor in the UFC for a long time....

but at this point I almost hope it doesn't happen.

I doubt he'd still be a dominant force and Dana White would use this as an opportunity to tarnish his legacy. He'd feed him to the wolves and use his loses as evidence that "he was never that great to begin with."

I get what you're saying but for those of us that know how good he was, DW's rhetoric would mean squat

y not give him a shot in the UFC, whats the worst that can happen... but as along as M-1 is still breathing it won't happen.. if he loses then so be it, and if he wins he adds to his legacy.. it win-win for everyone don't see the problem that everyone is having for this

Considering that Mark Hunt is a top ten ranked UFC HW, i don't think it's a ludicrous stretch to say Fedor could be a Top ten UFC HW.

lol who says Mark Hunt is top 10??? Considering all of the Strikeforce heavyweights will be in the UFC soon, there is no way he will be top 10 again...don't forget this is a guy that struggled greatly to beat Brett Rogers and beating Monson and a LHW Ishii doesn't mean hes making a comeback lol

#10 ranked UFC HW. Linked because you asked.

And you don't remember the Brett Rogers fight very well. Short of the GnP spurt from Rogers, that was a completely one sided fight.

you are clearly a blind hater, aka idiot, if you think Rogers had Fedor in trouble. If that's the case then Anderson struggled greatly to beat Belfort

The only one of his loses that exemplifies any type of diminishing skill set would be the Bigfoot fight and even that would be a stretch.
