i think if josh worked on his stand up a lot it could be a very close fight cuz everyone knows he can handle is own on the ground.. i wouldn't mind him losing a little bit of weight either

who else are possible opponents fedor might beat that will challenge him in 07?

Sergei Kharitonov (if he has a good year)
Josh Barnett ( if he decides to face him )
Noguera ( don't think its going to happen )

i really cant think of anyone else at the moment..

If Josh Barnett had body position the way Mark Hunt did in Fedors last match,

IMO Josh would have been able to sink the keylock. I think Josh has a 40% chance of beating Fedor.



Josh would of sunk that kimura like there was no tomorrow and that would of been the end of Fedor's reign. Luckily for Fedor when he finally does make such a big mistake he has Hunt on top of him rather than a Nog or Josh or even someone like Sergei or Werdum.

That kimura was in pretty damn deep and it's a shame it was slightly out of position. I didn't get too excited at the time as you could tell Fedor had it under control to an extent and hunt didn't have the hand/wrist close enough to the body to cause some damage.

I think Werdum also has a really good chance if he can take Fedor to the ground. His BJJ rivaled Nog's in there match and that was damn close, whereas the Sergei fight was even closer.

He has some really good wins and even beat some decent opponents in his first few fights and alot of people are not giving him enough credit.

Its hard to say if Barnett didnt have the massive body i would say its a easy win for fedor. Not saying that fedor wouldnt win anyway, but if Barnett was smaller it would help. Because i feel that is Barnetts best weapon using he mass to lay on fighters and make them waste their energy trying to control him. In Barnett's fight with CroCop Barnett closed the distance and laid on Mirko most of the fight and wore him down and barely lost by decision. CroCop didnt take Barnetts size into his game plan cuz he has fought guys his size before but nobody that has used their weight in that manner. I would say that Big Nog or CroCop would be the best matches for Fedor. Fedor would probably win by GnP if anything

Fedor Ko RD 1 . Fedor has better strikeing , and his takedowns are much stronger than Barnetts . I See Barnett getting Peppered with shots early than taken down with Fedor finishing him with punchs from the gaurd ! I think this will be the first time Barnett isnt in a fight , and he gets blown away .

Imo The only fighter who currently can go the distance [ 20 minutes ] with a Healthy Fedor [ No broken hands ] Is Nog . Nog Has a better chance of beating him if they fight again , because he improved his standup , but more importently he increased his size and strength , and Improved his wrestling takedowns , and Reversals from the bottom . We allready saw that haveing Fedor in your gaurd dosent work , but Nog will be looking to be on top this time , and he may have some success this time .

Fedor takes this one easily. He'll take down/knock down Barnett repeatedly for 3 rounds. Doubt he'll pound him unconscious because Josh is a tough cookie, but Fedor will easily control position for 3 rounds.

Fedor by whatever he wants.

Barnett is and awesome fighter and he's slowly creeping up my favourites list but i just dont think he is on the level that fedor is.

I think Barnett has the best chance out of anyone in Pride, but I don't see him being able to pull it off. Fedor is quicker on the feet and a better technical striker, and Barnetts big weapon, leglocks a-la Erik Paulsson, are Fedor's bread and butter. I think best case senario for Barnett is a decision, and worse case, he gets caught last in the first and either GnPed out or subbed.

If I had to pick one person to beat him it would be Barnett. I think Fedor is still a strong favorite, but Barnett has the skills to beat anyone. Of course Fedor isn'y just anyone.
