Default Re: Are people still interested in seeing Fedor fight in the UFC?

If Fedor went on a steak of dominating guys like Jon Jones has been doing, then yes, I would agree that Fedor appeared invincible.

As for Fedor in the UFC, why not? Kimbo got a shot didn't he? It's a win-win for Fedor. If he overachieves then he has a ton of reasons to be proud. If he's content with fighting unknown cans in Japan or Russia that's fine but it's not going to enhance his legacy.
Um...he did actually, for a longer than these UFC guys

I would be curious at which point he was in danger of losing the HMC, Lindland and Hunt? By your definition Jake Shields nearly ended GSPs career.
