    That's a Vicki LaMotta ref from RB, no?

    If Fedor is making close to the money they say he's making, he's going good for his business and I'm fine with that I suppose. But still, this is pretty befuddling.

    If they're saving a freakshow Kimbo for a Bellator bout, that could do ratings, so I can see them not booking them on NYE, I guess(even though this is on SPIKE) and the same could go for Lashley. I think logic would've dictated Kongo as a reasonable name. I was hearing Arona, which sounded nuttier than a pet squirrel, but had some backstory. I wasn't going to be surprised whoever they picked, but I was leaning towards a Thiago Silva or a Stephan Bonnar even. They've already burned a Fedor/Ishii bout and I don't think there'd be much interest in a Fedor/Ivanov match, even though going into MMA, Ivanov's claim to fame was besting Fedor in a samba tourney.

    It's funny, once I heard Tito say it wasn't him, part of me was like, "Welp, there's a chance it's Tito" lol. But I think he's getting his knee scoped and in all likelihood is on the shelf for a while.

    Thank god they didn't book Fedor/Sakuraba is all I can say, I know he's on the card, but that's one fight that would be gross to watch...

    This is a free money + rust removal fight. Pour a little CLR on Fedor's cybernetics.

    So did Fedor's management just google "MMA Heavyweights" and click to page 9 and pick the first name they saw? A guy who's on his 2nd MMA fight and an 18 month break between fights? I really hope facing off against Alireza Tavakoli prepared him for Fedor. Can we be hopeful that Fedor's next opponent will have more than 3 fights?

    Its been 3 years man. Did you expect him to return and face Godzilla?

    Granted, he'd probably beat him too, but he needs a tune up.

    I expect that the opponent will change and be arecognizable name as we get closer to the event and ticket sales and interest are low.

    You know you are a legend when you can face a can, get paid 2.5 millions for it, and have the MMA world talk about it.


    Well it is still not official that Singh will be his opponent. If that is the case, it's Ok, it is just a tune up fight. We can still hope that in summer he will be negotiating with the UFC again.

    Can't believe Fedor's coming out of retirement to fight this guy.

    Let him defend his title at least 3 more times before we can consider him as the greatest.

    On paper he has one of the best resumes, not sure about GOAT.

    Werdum has improved dramatically in the last 4-5 years. Before 2010 he was a good HW but nothing extraordinary. Today he is the best HW in the world, no doubt about it.

    4 title defenses at HW and he'll need to be in the GOAT conversation.

    The article mentions Jaideep is 40-10 in kickboxing but what it fails to mention is, Jaideep is on a 3 fight losing streak in kickboxing also.
