Fedor is the champ so no need for him to move but his brother hey how many threads we all seen of the lack of good heavyweights in UFC. UFC needs heavyweights bad heavyweights are the glamour division beyond a mediocre Sylvia-Monson match or a pointless revenge match with Mir or Liddell coming up in weight what do we have? Dana White open up that check book and bring the younger brother stateside give him his chance to sit alone on a throne he can not occupy while fighting under the Pride banner.

    they both said they would fight eachother, but alex going to the ufc would be great, i actually like that idea...i think putting him in the ufc would be great for him and the ufc

He's just not as good as Fedor and I think a person is in there prime at a young age, fighters usually slow down in there 30s unless they just have so much skill slowing down doesn't really matter.

    I would say a fighter in his 40's is where they need to hang it up (Tank A., Randy C., Ken S., ...etc)
    Yes but some fighters deteriorate faster that others. Like Roy Jones, and a few others I can't remember.

    Sergei is definitely Aleksander's biggest win to date, but I wouldn't put him up there with Fedor quite yet. He got subbed by Barnett and he tends to gas early. He needs to continue to work on his cardio. He needs a couple of more big wins till you put him up there in that elite status.
