    Affliction are putting on the fights that UFC won't.

    Great time to be a MMA fan :-)

    barnett deserves his shot damn it! However, I'm very excited to see Fedor vs AA. I'm pulling for AA, but after seeing Fedor make Tim his girlfriend, I dunno if anyone can stop him right now. He's definitely at the top of his game.

    Agreed... I think Barnett is a very smart fighter, and would come in with the best well rounded game plan against Fedor.

    I'm sure I'll get blasted for this but I really don't want to see this fight.

    I REALLY like both of these guys and I can't pick one I'd like to see lose. No way around it. but I think it would be a great fight. I just hate it when I like both fighters really well.

    I hear yea bro, Randy with his 7-4 Record at HW doesnt compare to Fedors, thats one of the reason i put him last on the list. THE ONLY reason i even put him on the list is because of the Hype surrounding the fight, if it happened in the UFC it would break every record they have for sure. It would be a good fight but not as competitive as others IMO. And It would also be a huge shove into the American limelight for Fedor.

    BTW: I personally rather see Nog/Fedor again then Fedor/Randy

    But to be honest i dont buy the whole "Hes the best, he could retire today and NOBODY will EVER come close to touching him EVER!!" Like cmon, the sports changing so fast, for all we know we could have 30 "Fedors" in EVERY weight class in just 5 years!

    If Fedor retired today no doubt he'd be the best, no doubt, no debates whatsoever. But he still didnt fight Barnett, Randy, AA, Werdum and other good HWs.

    BUT lets say he retires, then some new, up n comer comes along and totally destroys EVERY top HW still fighting and goes on a streak longer and far more dominat then Fedors?? What now??

    All im saying is, If Fedor beat EVERY, and i mean EVERY top HW out there(randy or not), THEN retired, the new guy would have to pull a fucking miracle to beat his legacy! But if Fedor retires tommorow and some new guy beats every (good)HW Fedor beat, AND the ones he didnt, well then you gotta put his legacy ahead of Fedors, right?:headscratch:

I'll be anxious to see the fight metric after the fight because it will certainly show that Fedor will outstrike AA. Fedor not only hits as hard as AA, he hits from angles that AA won't see coming. Fedor has the fastest hands of all the HW's by a mile. It almost seems like you're trying to say that AA's sambo and Fedor's sambo are comparable...seriously now. I'm a big AA fan and Fedor both so I'll enjoy the fight regardless of the outcome, I just think it's a fairly obvious outcome to objective eyes.

    No shit man, Fujita hit him as hard as he could with everything he had and it was a wild ass looping right hook to the temple, if that didn't drop him, I don't see AA doing it. He took a crocop kick to the head and kept coming forward for crying out loud, I would've been running like crocop was after that. I said before Fedor fought Tim, Tim better come to the ring with a bat and an Uzi or it's not going to be a good night for him.

    Sorry, but I don't think AA can avoid going to the ground with Fedor. Also, I think that his bottom game is not good enough to avoid either a sub or GnP.

    Not to shift gears, but I see Randy vs Fedor being even worse. Randy has decent ground game... From the top. We have seen him do well against Barnett and Ricco when he was on top. Shortly after they got on top of Randy, the fight was over. Fedor has shown an excellent top game, and a damn fine bottom game. Even if Randy gets the takedown, I see Fedor sweeping or even subbing him. If Fedor gets the top against Randy, (to quote Bill Paxson in Aliens) "Game over man!" IMO of course.
