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

Or does no-one care anymore?


I suppose if he gets dominated by Bigfoot and sparked by Hendo, he doesn't have enough left to be a title contender anymore, but would you still be interested in seeing him fight in the organization at all, like Nog and Crocop have been doing?


On one hand I think it'd be quite sad to see such a great reduced to going to war with guys he'd have crushed in his prime, on the other I still think there are some interesting fights out there to be made, if the right opponents are selected.


Thoughts?

Not anymore, i wanted to see him once pride fc died and after he beat arlovski and sylvia but now there's no point. He is clearly past his prime and would get destroyed by most ufc heavyweights.

No matter what his fights would still be amongst the most interesting on whatever card he is on.

However, given what has happened to Big Nog, Wandy and CroCop, and especially the way some people on this site are talking about Big Nog, it is probably best that he does not. Legacy wise he has nothing to prove.



Oh ya, **** you bet-dodger!

No way. If Fedor wants another shot at glory to prove he isn't finished at the top level then he will need to go out of his way in beating every available heavyweight outside of the UFC.

Completely pointless. Fedor has obviously lost a step. And there's no way he can keep up with the competition in the UFC. He'd be better off retiring instead of these ridiculous fights he's taking on behalf of M-1.

Why not he has nothing to lose and would probably still beat fighters like Struve

No, the GOAT is not the fighter he was, the last thing he deserves is to lose to one of Dana White`s men & have to listen to how prime Fedor would always have lost to whatever fighter Dana puts him in there with.
