    I like Fedor, he's always been the GOAT IMO, but Bader has fuckin earned this, and I hope he wins.

    I honestly don't see Fedor winning unless Bader gets clipped on the way in, and I don't see him rushing it so hard, knowing the risk.

    I don't know, Fedor is great and all but he's way way over the hill and he was so exhausted after chael he couldn't muster enough energy to do his patented fist pump once he won. Well he did, but you could tell he was completely spent.

    I could tell by about 2/3 of the way through the 1st round he was suckin wind hard.

    Would have been nice to see, but Bader is going to wear his ass out the same way he did last week.

    I'll be happy for Ryan too. i always felt he got a bad rap in the UFC, and mostly because he didn't run his mouth so much. maybe I'm wrong but it's like you'd never even hear about him till fight week

    I felt like Fedor punched himself out vs Sonnen to be honest, I don't think his cardio is great though, and if he did punch himself out then it still goes to show that his punch count has decreased tremendously. That was one of the great things about prime Fedor, as a HW he had a tremendously high punch count for a guy that would fling power punches at incredible speeds, although a small HW someone his size being able to go 15 minutes like he did, with such a high output, and majority of his punches had ferocious speed, and power behind them.. Reasons why he still may be the GOAT.

    I don't think he had a bad rap it's just every significant run he went on in the UFC, he wound up getting brutally finished. Started 12-0 then was finished back to back. Won 2 fights after and then KO'd by Machida. Then finished by Glover. He went on a 5 fight streak only to be BRUTALLY finished by Rumble. It's hard to get behind him only to see him brutally finished on the cusp of a title shot.

    Even better, what if it was just each guy beating up Sonnen, one after the other
