    i cant believe fedor is going to even think about facing bobby…if fedor somehow lost to that huge bitch his career would be a joke …why risk it??? he last saw actoin in shark fights..and could not even hanmg with shit hw in sf…this is suicide for fedor

  2. Dick Diaz says:

    hm, i wonder how M-1 is doing these days in terms of profit…

  3. jbeamazing says:

    who cares

  4. Mike McMack says:

    I guess Fedor fans will have to just enjoy his last few fights before he hangs em up. He’s still a great fighter but he’s not the guy who dominated Pride wayyyyyyyyyy back when.

  5. Fedor, actually m-1 made the biggest mistake thinking Fedor would be the one man show not signing with UFC when they had the chance and being offered so much. Unforutnly, Fedor will be remembered by his last few fights then his reign in PRIDE.

    • Mike McMack says:

      M-1 ruined the career of Fedor. You’re right, he is going to be remembered as the guy who dominated Pride but fought and lost to less than stellar competition after his Pride run. His career will always be remembered as a what could have been.

      • T.Daddy says:

        M-1 didn’t ruin shit.. gaydor is dumb for stayin with them fools… This guy needs to hang’em up already…

      • Your Critic says:

        Stupid **** – Dan Henderson is the American GOAT and Bigfoot Silva and Fabricio Werdum are top 15 HW’s.

        • Mike McMack says:

          Okay and Werdum and Bigfoot had that status before they finished Fedor right? Hendo is legit but the other two SF losses were against less than stellar competition. Both of those fighters were mid level fighters at best when they fought Fedor. After fighting him then they got into the top 15 and before SF he fought guys that were way past their primes…gimmie fights. BTW Hendo’s natural weight is 185 since he cuts nada to make 205 and had to add weight to fight at HW, Fedor got KO’d by a guy two weight classes below him…he lost to less than stellar competition in SF.

        • rotman says:

          Werdum a “mid level fighter” before fighting Fedor? lol, so now top ten guys in the world are “mid-level.” moron

  6. Jason says:

    Sherdog will rank Lashley at #9 as soon as its official, just like arlovski, Rogers, werdum, …

  7. Chartmonster says:

    Greatest of all time!

  8. Dinglenuts Magee says:

    “Holy tomato can Batman!!!!”

  9. A.James says:

    Fedor may have to fight Overeem eventually. Alistair might get the boot.

  10. Daniel says:

    I say a fight that must happen in russia or the ufc is fedor vs Kharitonov , sergei has versed his brother aleksander but him and fedor have never crossed paths , would be a great fight especially in russia …. if its bobby then his either gonna go the distance and lose like monson ..there really isnt much options for fedor.

  11. Daniel says:

    Fedor vs Kharitonov has to happen and in russia it would be awsome, sergei and aleksander have fought but fedor and sergei have never crossed paths, a fight that has to happen , fedor dosent have much options.

  12. Daniel says:

    or kick out overeem and bring fedor in ufc

    • nasty nate says:

      Overeem and Fedor wont happen. Fedors management were one of the first ones to imply that Overeem was juicing. Fedors management wanted crazy amounts of drug testing while Overeem was training, which is basically implying that hes a juicemonkey and he was not to be trustd.

  13. exit 8 says:

    Forget lashley, fight jds @ 146

  14. T.Daddy says:

    I hope Lashley smashes this ufc dodging bum… Gaydor been washed up and takin gimmie fights ever since he left pride..

  15. DMAC says:

    It’s crazy reading articles like this about a legend. He let these mobsters tarnish the shit out of his legacy. His mystic is GONE!

  16. Tsimanga says:

    No matter what anyone says… he’s still the greatest HW in MMA history… bar none.

    • lookatthesescrubs says:

      easily, i love the tuf scrubs that call him ‘gaydor’, perhaps if they had been around for longer then a fucking year and not got into MMA through tuf they would understand, but they don’t

  17. Scotty says:

    Fedor is a waste.. Doesnt sign with UFC cause he let M-1 take control of his career and fights washed up fighters, loses to guys he was suppose to beat and now taking fights where he can get em.. Not sure what his mind set is, cant be money cause he would TONS of that if he signed with the ufc..

  18. sykoMMA says:

    Fedor is throwing his once illustrious career down the drain for nothing, he was once one of the best fighters in the world but the times have changed. Now as a HW he is nothing more than a joke compared to the bigger HW’s. He would be a stellar LHW, but I don’t think he would be willing to make that cut. Anyone who says he would stand a chance in the upper echelon of the HW division in the UFC is delusional.

  19. Trottski says:

    Most of you so called mma fans don’t no shit. Fedor is a legend and has nothing to prove to us real fight fans.

  20. CanILive says:

    WWE is gonna sign fedor

  21. KGB says:

    He should take on President Vladimir Putin, and you know he will clearly lose to Putin since he is a beast and well a 3rd degree blackbelt in judo

  22. CMolina says:

    Look guys I’m sorry to all of you that think that Fedor is the shit. He used to be back when the talent level was a bit lower. Nowadays the talent is so much higher than ever before and to even think that Fedor is in the top 5 HW’s of the world today is insane. Top 10 maybe. He was the best HW during that generation. To say he would dominate this generation of fighters is insane though. Best of all time? No. Best of his generation? HELL YES.

  23. JMK says:

    Back when talent was a bit lower? The best fights where back then, back when there were fewer rules, back when people could take a hell of a lot more of a beating, back when it was better. Half of the shit I’m reading on here is so retarded I’m surprised their brain functions enough to operate their body. Spoken by fans who know nothing about the sport except for what they see on TUF. Not to mention the fight can go either way. Any real fighter can tell you all it takes is 1 clean punch to end a fight.

    • CMolina says:

      What I’m saying about the talent is true there are far more talented fighters now than there were years ago. I never said the fights weren’t better because quite frankly the fights back then were the best fights that I have ever seen. The fewer the rules the better in my opinion and the whole carding for stalling rule was absolute genius I’m just saying that Fedor excelled in that time period but in this generation it would be a challenge for him. And yes I know one punch can end a fight as I do MMA myself but the top tier guys have to know how avoid that clean punch which is why they are in the top of their respective division. Fedor was great and had amazing fights, but I do not believe he could be champion in today’s game in which there are more rules and better competition.

  24. Brend0magic says:

    It’s a lose/lose situation for Fedor IMO.

  25. nasty nate says:

    ONly the truly retarded go on about Fedor dodging fights. Even Dana white, Fedors harshest critic says Fedor isnt afraid to fight anybody… but Fedors management are a bunch of fucking lunatics… lol. Fedor doesnt challenge or dodge anyone, he leaves that completely in the hands of his management. Fedor said himself that he doesnt think hes a legend, he doesnt care if people think hes the greatest, he just wants to make money and take care of his family, this is his job. I respect the hell out of that, hes a religious man, a humble man and a family man. You will never see another 235 pound heavyweight dominate like he did against the level of competition he dominated. Maybe once the Super Heavyweight division comes to pass you may see another 230 pound guy dominate.
