The bear isn't strong enough. Fedor will do whatever he wants with this fight, while taking minimal damage and dishing out maximum damage. Expect another armbar submission from Fedor, like in their first fight.

That bear better start running...or hopefully get a nasty cut that stops the fight early...

I remember ages ago when I didn't even know what MMA was, FHM interviewed Ian Freeman and Carlos Newton and asked for their thoughts on fighting bears!

LMAO of course!!

It's a classic matchup of strength vs. experience. Fedor's experience in the ring will be a major advantage. Fedor will come in with a game plan. The bear on the other hand, has no experience in the ring and we can't be sure if the huge amount of fans there cheering for Fedor will rattle the Bear or not. For all we know the bear might see all the people and start mauling the audience. I am not sure, but my guess would be that qualifies as a DQ.

Fedor definately has the better sub game, arm bars, leg locks and chokes all are part of his game. The Bear's BJJ skills are among the worst in mma, with only the Bear Hug being a viable option for submitting Fedor.

As far as striking goes, Fedor's standup game, while brilliant, lacks the large caliber guns needed to KO the bear. Fedor's best bet is to stick and move, hoping to score points with his jab while staying out of the Bear's grasp. The Bear's claws could pose a problem for Fedor, as he is known to bleed easily. In general though the bear should skip the striking and look for the take down.

In the wrestling department, I think the Bear holds an advantage. The Bear's superior strength and wide stance will negate Fedor's throws from the clinch. The Bear's sprawl and takedown defense are legendary, and if Fedor goes for a double leg, he will be in trouble. The Bear's takedowns are simple yet efficient. He runs at you, he runs over you.

All things considered, I think this fight revolves around three questions:

1. Which Bear are we going to see in there? Is it the Grizzly that wrecked havoc on John Candy and Dan Akroyd in "The Great Outdoors" or the potbellied, honey-junkie from Pooh Corner?

2. What time of year is it? Everyone knows that the Bear under-performs during his winter hibernation.

3. How Hungry is the Bear?

My prediction: In a fight resembling Tyson-Holyfield, Fedor wins be DQ when the bear, after taking Fedor down, begins biting his face off.
