    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Who is Next for Fedor?

    Who the hell can beat this monster?

    Mark Hunt
    Hunt is big and strong and tough as hell. I think standing, he could hang with Fedor. But Fedor's strike and then takedown style would definately put Mark on his ass, and then I'm sure Fedor could submit him. But Hunt has the puncher's chance, plus he's pretty slippery for a big guy on the ground.

    CroCop
    What the hell is up with the big man lately? After a valiant loss to Fedor, that should have given him a number of lessons to learn, he seems to have gone backwards. After he lost to Randleman way back, he had a single, determined, incredibly focused drive to get back to the top and challenge the champion. He did it, smashing everyone on the way, got to Fedor and couldn't beat him. Now, it's like he's lost his fire so to speak. I give him a chance, but only if he really, really wants it. And stops fucking walking away from people and looking at the clock.

    Sergei Kharitonov
    I give this guy a slim chance. He kind of reminds me of Fedor, but not as good. He can strike, he's got the judo and sambo, and he is a tough mofo. With a couple more big name fights under his belt I think he could have a great fight with Fedor. Look for a battle between these two in the upcoming heavyweight GP.

    I think those are the main 'threats' to Fedor. Whaddya reckon?

    I heard Yoshida making noises about going up in weight and challenging him. Good idea - if he wants to DIE! Fabricio Werdum's name has been tossed around too... I don't think he's ready.

    I'll say it again, I've said it before- Archie Moore will fall in 4. Er, wait, no...

    As I've said before, I think Fedor's biggest weakness is solid wrestling. Those fighters who really drove through him and persued a double-leg like their lives depended on it were the ones who managed to look pretty good...until they lost.

    Nobody he's fought has ever really put all the tools together. Arona had all the right savvy, but was pretty small to be competing with Fedor. Randleman and Coleman were great wrestlers and they were big, but they knew nothing of this strange new territory called "submission fighting."

    I think Ricco Rodriguez fits the bill. That is, he would if he'd get back into fighting shape before ever setting foot in the ring again.

    As it stands, the best chance would be for someone to leap into the ring and yell, "Jumanji!"

    I think Fedor first needs to make sure his hand is healthy before he fights anyone else this year.

    Cro Cop has been fighting too much lately. I'd wager that he's burnt out.

    Why hasn't Quinton Jackson been brought up? I think Rampage and Fedor would make for a great fight....

    At this point he looks unbeatable. He will rule the division for years to come. I can only see two guys who could give him trouble: Mark Hunt, if he improves his sprawl and defensive groundgame, and Arloviski. Arlovski is something of a wild card, since we haven't really seen the extent of his abilities yet, since no one in the UFC seems to be able to give him a decent fight. I would love to see him move to PRIDE...
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

    Arlovski has the best chance, and I agree with Mark Hunt + 12 months with Chuck Liddell learning Sprawl and Brawl.

    An interpromotinal match between Emelianenko and Arlovski could be MMA's Thrilla in Manila.

    I am waiting to see Arvloski go against a real fucking heavyweight. I want a battle with him, I want to see him in a war.

    I want to see how muc h heart this Russian has.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.
