  1. I don't like this fight. I like both guys a lot, and I think although prime Fedor would KO him in under 1 min IMO, the way he looked vs Maldonado was horrible, and who knows where his chin is at after that. Also, he's not nearly as fast as he was in his prime, so this might be the first time that Fedor's at a speed disadvantage. Other than the arlovski fight, maybe.

    • people like you are so pathetic. You've been watching MMA for 2 years and think you know how good the competition was back then. It's ridiculous because you ask anyone that was involved with the sport back then, they'll all tell you how wrong you are. UFC's HW division was a joke back then, plain and simple. Pride was filled with a murderers row of HW's, and Fedor never lost to any of them and he still hasn't, Fedor lost to father time.

      Get educated. Next time fight pass has a free weekend, watch some pride fights, learn something instead of coming off as an idiot.
