Just think of how fast fedor has submitted others as soon at it hit the mat, rogers wasnt a fish out of water and he impressed a lot of people. this fight with jds would not be a good fight for him. JDS is far more skilled standing, counters well, always seems to find an opening, and is very fast on top of hitting very hard. But who in the HW devision can really stand with JDS anyways. Remains to be seen but i dont think anybody in the UFC can stand with him (yes, carwin has power
) Fedor, possibly overeem? its not just JDS skill, but he is very explosive, fast, accurate and hits hard. Look at what he did to cc and yvel, 2 accomplished kickboxers.
ok, he is not a mixed martial artist yet.
i can stand here n flap my arms all day n try to fly dosent mean i can fly.
