The champ is coming

Pride heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko has been rumored to be entering the UFC for a quite a few months now. White confirmed that Emelianenko's debut is imminent.

"We are planning to have Fedor fighting in the UFC at the end of 2007 or early 2008," White said

If Arlovski was his first fight it would be a first round ko. Arlovski has a weak chin and Fedor would drop him quick. If Sylvia ko'd him think of what Fedor would do. I agree that Fedor would get an instant title shot. Everyone knows he's the best heavyweight in the biz.

I sincerely do hope that Fedor wins his first fight. MMA is a sport of upsets and I would hate to see that happen to Fedor. However, even if he did get beat fair and square (no cuts stoppage), then there would be hell to pay for anyone who fought him afterwards. Then not only would you have an extremely skilled Fedor to deal with, but also an extremely ticked-off, angry, bad intentions behind his fists Fedor, and that wouldn't be pretty.

Now if he hospitalized a notable (Arlovski, Couture, Gonzaga) first time out, that would be something to see.

On the Vera note, MMANEWS.COM has an interview with Vera.

If the UFC gets Barnett, Vera, and Fedor, OOOOOH SNAP! That will be the best weight division outside of the Welterwieght Div.

This isnt news. Dana has been saying the same thing for months. Fedor's inactivity and lack of quality opponents should drop him in the rankings soon.
