I really highly doubt anybody is going to be able to elbow him for more than even 10 seconds. He has an uncanny ability to reverse mounts with seconds, ie. Matt Lindland fight, Randleman fight, the list goes on...

Is Fedor even officially sign in the UFC yet? I heard they were having negotiation problems because UFC wants an exclusive contract, and Fedor wants to continue to fight w/ Bodog because of the $$.

I think you should hold off Fedor for as long as possible, because once he gets the UFC belt he will have it for a long long long time

I think Fedor could easily take the title but I think he should first kill Tim Sylvia...

i dont think that fedor will want to fight for the title right away. i seems like he might want to test the waters of the ufc first before commiting to a title fight. fedor is a very smart fighter and with the ufc being a new environment for him a "warm up" fight might be a good idea.

There's no question that Fedor DESERVES an immediate title shot as his first fight in the UFC. That doesn't mean he'll get it, but he should. He is, hands down, the best HW in the world. The division is stacked now, and down the line, I think Fedor will eventually lose, and then get revenge immediately. The elbows may cause him problems, but I can't wait to see his elbows on someone else's head.

If you read the interview with Fedor's manager, he doesn't want Fedor to have a difficult fight first to get used to the Ocatgon and rule changes.

Yeah, i read the interview and I agree. Although, in my opinion, he should have no more than two fights before fighting for the title, providing he wins the previous fights, which I believe he will. Fedor is great at adapting to situations, and amazing at imposing his will. It won't take him long to master the benefits and use of the octogon.
