    Fedor versus Pedro Rizzo?

    Well, this one is a doozy...acordingly to the brazilian web site TATAME, Jorge Guimar„es, manager to such fighters as Anderson Silva and Paulo Filho, has received a proposition to have his fighter Pedro Rizzo, champion in the promotion "Art of War", face off against Fedor Emelienenko. As it seems its a early proposition and they aren't untitled to say who is it from...but hey, its a juicy rumor from a well respected figure in brazilian mma and lider to Black House!

    Seriously, that's what Fedor is reaching for at this point? He may as well fly me down to Russia and beat the crap out of me for as significant as that fight would be.

    I love Fedor and believe he's the best fighter out there but he really, really needs to fight some significant competition before he gets too old.

    I would love to see that fight. That would be one beautiful scrap. Fedor wins though.

    At what point is the collective MMA ranking system going to follow boxing?

    If you havent fought a top 10 opponent in two years, since Cro-Cop (Though Hunt is a badass, he is not top ten), you should be stripped.

    Fedor is not the #1 guy. Even if he is a badass, he might not even be top 10 any more.

    Pedro just KO'ed Jeff Monson, he has KO'ed Barnett, this is not a write off fight.

    Pedro Rizzo is the mma encarnation of Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde in the sense that you never know who's gonna show up at the fight. The Pedro Rizzo that I liked had excellent Muay Thai and boxing skills, was tough as nails and was competent enough to survive a good grapple. He was Marco Rua's best pupil and fighter...remember him knocking down Andrei Arlovski? As much as I'm a Fedor nuthugger I have to say that, if the "Hyde" Pedro Rizzo shows up, we might have a good battle in our hands.


    Oh...and Fedor, stop being a ***** and actually fight someone who's somebody!! (rant over):icon_rr:

    Mma is like a three ring circus this year...champions walking off to the sunset, mma organizations popping up like mushrooms...and dying as fast as one, fight dodgers, money grabbers, dopping suspicions...and dopping certainties...it's been one hell of a year so far!

    I've said it once and I'll say it again...Fedor stop dodging and fight, god damn it! And Randy Couture? You know where to go, don't you? Who to follow into a new organization? Hint hint?

    True, but we never know who the heck which of Pedro's multiple personalities is gonna show up (the badass or the lame'o.)

    This fight is either going to be a badass battle, or it's going to become the one of the most anti-climatic, snorefest duds in MMA history.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
