The point is how can he complain about something he's done himself. (Which he did to everyone who would listen)

This is the same guy who denied tapping to Bustamante when the ref didn't see it.

Beyond the basic respect due to anyone who steps in the ring, I have little respect for him and

Sokou saying "Sokoudjou: What I was really impressed with was that he had to hang onto the ropes to survive Matt Lindland. That was just ridiculous. "

No, that statement is. Fedor could only "survive Matt?" Totally disrespectful to Fedor

Yes it is for a mili second but I see him give himself that little extra push with the ropes. 4:53 left looks like a pull when there engaged to me anyways.

I believe Sokoudjou can have a great fight with a guy with Fedor, that styles and power is just all there, everything falls into place, and I believe he can beat him, Sokoudjou does belong at Heavyweight anyways.

Am I the only one who doesn't think that he actually _GRABBED_ the ropes? It looks to me like he was just leaning on them... Like he'll put his forarm on the top of them, or his elbow, but he never seems to actually grip the ropes with his hands. I'll have to watch it again in slow motion or something, but I really don't think that he actually grabbed them... even when the referee is hitting his hand it looks like he's just resting it on top, which is legal to the best of my knowledge.

I dont realy know what to think about Sokoudjou yet, I mean those 2 fights may have been luck, or they may have been skill , and if you look at it he hasnt realy went up against any top class strikers, I would like to see him go agains maybe shogun, or somebody of that status and if he does good and lasts then we may see how good he realy is!

It makes my day when I see people get so offended when Fedor is less thought of and they get all defensive. xD

"Fav Fighter: Fedor"

COUGH COUGH.

Fedor's not my favorite fighter, and I still don't see anyone around who can beat him. Did anyone see his face after his fight with cro cop? and he didn't even seem like he was at all hurt during that fight....siiiick.

Well that and in an interview he stated when asked which organization do you prefer UFC or pride? he replied "I'm a UFC fighter and thats the organizeation i'm in". How does that not say something about his feelings about pride? He also stated when asked "why did you walk into PRIDE's theme?" "There are personal reasons for that."




im still not convinced of anything



who cares what you're convinced of. CroCop has stated numerous times he likes PRIDE better. He prefers a ring etc. Maybe if you would do some research people on here wouldn't have to educate you. PRIDE has way better talent and put on way better cards. I don't care about management.

As for Lindland he needs to stop crying, last time I checked Fedor has subbed superior wrestlers (Coleman) from the bottom so he would've lost no matter what. Everybody grabs the cage/ring ropes, watch a Chuck Liddell fight.

lol @ soko beating fedor. you've lost your damn mind, the guy wouldn't even beat Wanderlei or Shogun. He's had what? 4 fights?? He already assumes he's a legend and can call out guys like Fedor and Shogun, guys who have done more in their careers then his idol Dan Henderson. He will get put in his place.

honestly i dont think Fedor grabbing the ropes made a difference in the outcome. Yea he had a cut but theres no way they would stop that fight due to a cut stoppage in Russia while the whole nation is watching this guy and the president is there.
