they will really have to hype fedor up. i feel a lot of casual fans will look at fedor who looks like some regular dude and will be like no way this guy can be as dangerous as they say.

Mark Hunt? K-1 champ and at the time he was touted top10 HW in the world(even though i disagree). Coleman isn't a pushover either, his loses come only against people who are really good. Lindland even though a MW weighted in at 210(if im not mistaking) which is probably his walking weight plus some muscle building. Lindland is easily top 3 imo in MW today. I'd say thats a pretty solid competition and is certainly better than "Eddie Sanchez's".

The only 'can' is Zulu who is just a punching bag. When Fedor beat him i seriously thought it looked like a man fightin a baby. Undefeated Vale Tudo record my ass.

I can see it now...

Text appears, " 30 minutes before the fight". You see him playing cards and laughing. . Flash of him in his kimono walking out. "25 minutes before the fight" Back to him playing cards and looking at a catalog of T-shirts... Flash of him hitting Nog's had so hard that it keeps bouncing off of the floor. "10 minutes before the fight" Back to him warming up in a hallway... Flashes of the footage in Nog's fight where he comes straight at the camera and just doesn't stop.

That would be so bad ass :P.

This will probably THE biggest fight in MMA history. Out of all the people in MMA if there was someone who has a chance to beat fedor it would be couture. I doubt it will happen though. Couture still has a few surpirses left in him

Fedor is #1, but:
Mark Hunt has no ground game (see Hunt-Barnett)
Zulu is can
Matt Lindland,"even though a MW"!,2 divisions below Fedor!!

Eddy Sanchez,hmm..who knows.His only loss is against Cro Cop,he is 2-1 in UFC with one solid win over Neto

IMO Barnett has the biggest chance to beat Fedor.Barnett is bad matchup for Fedor

....

Again, Mark Hunt was touted top10 at the time of Fedor's fight, i dont care if he has no ground game, it doesn't matter. CC doesn't have no ground game either it doesn't stop him from being the top competition for anyone in HW.
Again, Matt Lindland WAS TWO HUNDRED TEN POUNDS at the time when he fought Fedor. 210lbs = Heavyweight. It also means he was a lot stronger and NOT exhausted from cutting weight.
Zulu is can
Sanchez is can

Nog is no can especially at the time neither was Herring who at the time PrideFC was trying to position in a title shot at Nog, unfortunately they matched him up against a guy named Fedor.
