| | I wonder about Fedor Emelianenko's invincibility
I have seen about half his fights on Google video and YouTube and I am very impressed. I worry that people make him out to be this invincible machine and that, especially after his hand surgery, that he may not live up to the expectations.
I would rather see him lose in a complete war against a worthy opponent than against a guy who happened to be his first fight after a major surgery. Not to mention that this loss will come in PRIDE's first US show causing a lot of US MMA fans that are not familiar with him to not appreciate his accomplishments.
A question I have is who is closer to their peak Aleksander or Fedor? Aleksander is 5 years younger than Fedor, but does not have that air of invincibility around him. Has Fedor already peaked and started his inevitable downward slide (especially since the surgery) or is he is good enough shape and young enough to still dominate?
