You said there is no proof that he refuses to fight the best. Well....the best aren't in "Mix fighting championship", that's for sure.

No one can argue that the UFC has the best competition out there right now, period. He was offered huge amounts of money from multiple organizations and chose "mix-fight championship". Who the **** are they? It's obvious he's trying to duck the best competition.

Dana likes to play hardball and Fedor doesn't like to be pushed around.

I don't get why Randy saying he's unhappy with the UFC management and leaving makes him a hero, but Fedor refusing to take what was offered to him makes him a coward.

Dana has to learn his heavy handed management might work with TUFers whose only alternative is to go work in McDonalds, but it doesn't work with the sport's top athletes anymore (nor does it work with HBO, it would appear).

I've said it before but Dana's drive and determination was great for getting the UFC to where they are now, but I'm not sure his lack of professionalism, huge ego and hot headed nature is the best thing for keeping them there.

Fedor has a history of ducking.

He ducked Crocop as long as possible.

He ducked Jeff Monson.. who asked to be released from the UFC for the fight with Fedor. Then Fedor *****ed out.. refused to fight Monson.. and instead fought a ****ing 185lb fighter in Matt Lindland.

Its been reported from credible sources that he DID NOT want to fight Tim Sylvia in the UFC because he feels its a bad match for him.

And now he ducks the obvious fight for him.. Randy Couture.



Fedor is a *****. He hasn't fought a legitimate contender since 2005.
He saw what happened to PRIDE's wonderboy Shogun in the UFC. He saw what happened to Mirko.

Wait. Do you really think Fedor is as simple-minded as you. It doesn't take a ****ing Rocket Scientist.

Shogun came in out of shape and got submitted. The guy that submitted him was KTFO by Jardine....who just beat Lidell.....who KTFO of Couture twice. So how does all that make him afraid of Couture exactly?

For one, its a US organization. Why would he join an organization that is going to put a ball and chain on him, then make him the bad guy for beating the snot out of Couture? The UFC's mouthpiece is Dana White, you think he likes Dana?

I'm sure he would love to fight Couture on his own terms. He's the best on the planet, why should he be forced to fight Couture in his back yard, in an organization with rules he doesn't like, who's mouthpiece he doesn't like, in a country he doesn't seem to like?

A little Americentric here.. This is a metropolitain sport. I think it should stay that way.

No it's not a "fight", it's you accussing one of, if not the, best fighters on the planet of being afraid of an entire organization because a former Pride LT Heavy lost his debut in the new organization. Its basically you being stupid.

Bottom line
Fedor has had 1 meaningful fight in the last 3 years.

He is not the greatest fighter in the world... or at least he hasn't proven it. The game changes a lot in 3 years.

Yeah? And how about Mirko? Fedor's "toughest" fight?
Yeah he's really tearing it up in the UFC.


If he's not ducking fighters.. why did he refuse to fight Jeff Monson?
You know why? Because he knows he cant out grapple Monson.

So what does he do? He fights a 185lb grappler.
