    Haven't watched the fight, but I am told Fedor was exceptionally careful about getting too close to Monson's dangerous submission abilities, kept his distance and peppered away at him without ever going charging in and going full Fedormania on him like he usually does.

    Not sure what to think about that - Monson is a credible opponent if not top-level and Fedor defeating him handily shows that he at least has SOME ability left in his body, but the world fell in love with the hard-charging genocidal Fedor that blitzed Sylvia and Zulu inside a minute and fell victim to Werdum's triangle. I'm not sure that a new Careful Fedor would be something I'd particularly enjoy watching, considering how deliciously ol-skool his fighting style has been up to this point.

    **** Monson's haters, by the way. He's sort of one dimensional, but the man is good at what he does and he's pretty tough as well. Cormier splatted the titanic Antonio Silva and still didn't manage to put Monson away.

    Yeah, it's pretty obvious that he doesn't really care that much about training superhard anymore. His spare tire's getting more pronounced every time you see him fight and surprise surprise, he's not doing nearly as well as he once was anymore.

    His style by now is really like 60s soccer from Italy: Effective, but boring.

    I watch a fight, I want to see a fight!

    I am not emotionally invested in this, I just felt like this fight was really bad and boring.

    If this marks the turning point in Fedor's career, all the power to him,
    but I will probably refrain from karing his fight dates in the calendar for a while.

    I am certain Fedor will cry himself to sleep for weeks upon hearing that sad bit of news.

    Fedor is getting pretty chubby now and at this rate next year he'll surpass Barnett's look. His moving was still pretty damn quick when he had to be, ie. takedown defence.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    This is exactly what happened.

    As a huge Fedor fan, I've been listening for years how he's reckless, and dives in with no care, but manages to pull it out. Then the Werdum fight, and too many are like "see, he just had to fight a pretty good guy on teh ground to get caught". Why on earth would he want to get close to Monson, who is a premier grappler. He learned from his previous fights, and just picked the guy apart. Nice leg kicks there.

    He did to Monson, what he should probably have done to Werdum. Beat him up from range.

    I don't care who you are, be wary of that ^^^^^ on the ground. I'm looking forward to Fedor's next fight. Win or lose, I like the humility, and drive of the guy, not to mention serious martial prowess. Fair weather fans may say one thing, but the talk about being humble, and doing the damn thing, I meant then and now.

    That's about the same way he will react to your expressions of approval.

    His kids likely won't get bullied much. "I'm telling daddy, or uncle Aleks". *everyone runs*

    I'd still like to see Fedor vs Lesnar, personally.

    I checked that face up against the "Emotions of Fedor" chart and the result was "Murderous Rage." It's hard to tell them all apart, though.
