    WOW huge win Fedor, way to prove your still valid by beating………..whats his name from nobody street in the country of 2nd rate fighters. Retire O supreme master of Im past my prime. Sick of hearing your name, drop your retarded management go to UFC or Retire. Other than that all you prove is that you can beat up and comers and veterans past their prime, big deal.

    Fedor looked very tentative at first but once he worked out Ishii couldn’t hurt him, he started to let his hands go, there’s no question he can dish out a beating he’s just not so good at taking one anymore… I’m pretty sure he rocked Henderson early in their fight before losing….. Also good to hear “the voice”an Aussie commentator in international mma
