If you have nothing to dispute MY OPINION, then shut the fuck up and keep it moving. You dumbfucks are starting to look like BK now.

    Then you wonder why most ppl don't even come around here no more lol.
    This is pretty funny. Your post screams butt hurt yet you are accusing that of others. There is plenty out there to dispute your opinion. I get it. It your opinion and you are entitled to have one. There is a difference between an informed opinion rooted in facts to support your opinion and an uninformed opinion you pluck out of thin air because you do not know what you are talking about.

    I can't help it if you never watched Fedor and only believe the Dana White spin but to suggest Fedor was scared or ducking anything is just plain stupid.

    At there peaks Cain vs Fedor would be epic. It really could go either way. I would give the advantage to Cain because of his work rate but Fedor could end it with 1 shot.

    Post like yours above bring these forums down a level and I do not think I've ever read anything from you that is noteworthy or intelligent.

    Oh well Ron White was right you can't fix stupid so I don't even know why I bothered to reply

Its easy to just blame his management but at the end of the day he communicates with his management and let them try negotiating those stupid things like co-promoting and etc. I really doubt he was completely outta the loop of what kinda offers and requests were being made.
    You are so wrong about this I don't know where to begin.

    The UFC did not MOST of the best heavyweights. Sure they had Cain a JDS who were not exactly the household names they are now. Aside from that they had who? Brock, Mir, Nog, Carwin Im sure I'm missing someone but my point is they had a handful of big names, and some upcoming talent. Outside of the UFC you had Alister, Barnett, Werdum, BigFoot, Brett Rogers, Daniel Cormier probably others I'm overlooking. Again a handful of big names and some up and comers.

    There where as many if not more challenges outside of the UFC as in. Fedor was not ducking anyone. In my opinion, he just didnt want to work for someone who sent much of the last several years shitting all over Fedor.

    None of us will ever know exactly why a deal couldn't be worked out but suggesting The UFC had the best heavyweights and Fedor was ducking them is comical. Hell all you have to do is look at the UFC's ranking and you'll see 5 or so of the top 10 are guys that were in Strikeforce when Fedor signed.

    Yes, Cain has never faced anyone like Fedor; he's faced better. I'm not taking anything away from Fedor, yes he probably was one of the greatest in his time, but that was his time. MMA is no longer what it was back then. A new breed like Cain would just devour Fedor. I don't think Fedor's skills in his prime would have been enough in this day in age.

    Uhhh.. just no. But on topic. Cain at heavyweight is a lot like Edgar was at ww. They are both pretty small for their weight classes, but they are much quicker than the rest of the people in it. Add that in with better conditioning and good wresting and they just give fits to all the people in their divisions. With Fedor, Cain's usually huge speed advantage and superior gas tank are no longer relevant, so I have no idea how it would play out. I'm not saying a prime Fedor would beat Cain, but it would be a great match up.

    Prime Fedor vs Cain would of been a fight for the ages in my opinion, wish we could of witnessed that. So many fights that we missed out on by the way M1 and UFC handled their negotiations in entirely the wrong way.

    lol i was just fucking around. BUT in all honesty i think lesnar pre illness could have gave Fedor a go. Brock is a fucking beast with legit wrestling and had a chin - never actually KO'd and took a hell of a beating from carwin and survived it and won. His size and strength matched with his speed would have gave Fedor problems imo as well much like Bigfoot did for him aside from the speed aspect.

    Im not saying he wins, im just saying its not as one side as ppl think it would be imo. Fedor's the GOAT at HW, arguably all time (AS).

    Brock would of gave him a fight no doubt, his wrestling is damn near 2nd to none for his size and strength, but I think Fedor could handle it. He fought bigger.. bigger doesnt always make you badder, but it helps.
