Default Fedor ducking the UFC ? You guys can't be serious.

WHY in the **** would Fedor DUCK the UFC?
There's NO ONE in UFC's HW division. NO ONE.

Brock Lesnar maybe? (do you think a guy like fedor honestly gives a shit or even knows him?)

Gonzaga ? please!
Crocop ? Compare him to the 2005 version. I don't know about you people , but as far as i'm concerned. I don't even want to see a rematch between these two. That's how bad Filipovic looks now. To the point where he shouldn't even be ranked in the top 10.

Kongo? lol
Nogueira ? He couldn't do it in his prime , and he's not gonna do it now.
Arlovski? double lol.
Sylvia?
Herring ?
Mir? Vera ?

That division is dead.

Couture? too ****in old. And He's not even in the UFC anymore.
He's RETIRED (again).

Emelianenko is getting $10Million in M1.

The guy is basically the only mma fighter who's getting paid like a professional boxer. Can you blame him ?

Seriously who in the **** was Fedor gonna fight in the UFC ? Werdum?
Barnett is not in the ufc & nor is Kharitonov.

Who the **** is he going to fight in his shitty little orginization? Tell me that!

He no longer wants any REAL competition. His last fight was against a Middleweight and he almost lost it. Yes, he's indeed ducking the UFC. He turned down numerous HUGE offers from several organizations for some shitty little club. Fighting shouldn't be entirely about money either.

Fedor has had 4 meaningless fights in a row, and with the exception of CroCop, has not had meaningful fight in almost 3 full years.

Ducking or not, he's not fighting anybody anymore.

WHAT Competition? WHO? WHOOOOO ?...
Personally ? I wanted to see him in K1's Heros , but it's not the case.
Yes i'm pissed but when i think about it. (and especially now that Couture is gone).

There's no point going over there now.
For the money ? **** no, He's officially the best paid MMA fighter in the history on this sport now.

I also would've loved to see a fight between him and Barnett but that guy ain't fighting in the UFC either.

So your argument is that now that the people who lost to Fedor are either losing or looking bad in the UFC they are no good. Oh, its been too long of a time to compare them? Well, then maybe Fedor should FIGHT SOMEBODY IN THE LAST 3 YEARS.

Here's what i'm saying...(can't make myself any clearer).

I'm saying that

1 There's nobody in ufc's hw division.
2 the only interesting fight will never happen. (couture is gone)
3 No need for rematchs
4 The 2nd best opponent (Barnett) is not in the UFC
5 He's getting paid way better where he's at now.

There's NO ONE.
And with couture who's out of the picture...this leaves us with Nogueira vs Kongo for the belt. or will Sylvia win back his belt ?

I agree they act like the Guy deserves every break in the book, it's easy to keep a great legacy if you don't take big fights....or fight at all.

If Fedor changed his name to Floyd Mayweather Jr. there would be about 10 hate threads dedicated to him right now. They would say he's bad for MMA. His legacy is shit. He hasn't fought anybody in X amount of years. He can't be p4p #1 until he starts fighting people. He needs to stop going after the money and make the fights that the people wanna see. He's a bitch, he's ducking Margarito (Oops, I meant Couture) because he knows Couture can beat him, etc . . .













and he can't dance.

That is absolute bullshit, Gonzaga, Vera, Sylvia, Arlovski, Kongo and Werum, and Couture who was with the UFC when Fedor signed elsewhere, are ALL better than anybody Fedor has fought since CroCop. Not to mention that if you take away UFC fighters CroCop Nog and Herring, the only wins against current HW's that Fedor has that mean anything are Randleman, Coleman, and Schilt.

If theres nobody in the UFC, then theres nobody period, Barnett is coming off his 3rd loss to CroCop.

So true.


Sweat Pea, its not Fedor who refused to sign, its UFC who refused to give the contract that they agreed upon .

Well Floyds fights against Zab and Gatti were worthless, just as Fedor's last 4 have been, those fights were bad for boxing as a whole, as Fedor's were bad for MMA as a whole.

And do you, me, or anybody else not involved know what the hell went on in 2+ weeks of negotiation? Do you really think all that negotiation was as simple as you are making it out to be?

Again, someone answer me this...WHO THE **** WILL HE FIGHT IN HIS SHITTY LITTLE CLUB? We should have expected such a bitch move, he's been doing it for quite some time now.

He feels safe, got lots of money, but could have made even more, end of story.
