    Fedor will beat Chael, and probably without much problem (I'm pulling for Chael, though, because I love the guy). But knowing who actually controlled Pride, I'd be shocked if no "funny business" occurred with booking and even results. The mob is the mob.

    Seems like bs. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Russians cheating at anything before this.

    The man with the biggest arms, the greatest charm, the man who does all the harm. The American Gangster. A tyrant. A dictator. The leader of the free world. The reason why Waldo is hiding. The man who could walk in the sun and wouldn't even melt, the man who could wear the Golden Gate Bridge as a championship belt.

    222 perfectly woven pounds created by God. Muscle steel and sex appeal.

    The most interesting man in the world.

    Chael P. Sonnen. And the "P" stands for "the greatest of all time."

    And "perfection" too.

    There's just no way Fedor Emelianenko can handle the pressure. He'll be just mesmerised. Chills will be coming down his Russian spine just for standing next to Greatness.

    He can do whatever the hell he wants to. Call Cro Cop and Nogueira. Call the entire Pride roster. Hell, call the Yakuza. Call Putin, call Russia and all their soldier who act like "sambo" actually means something.

    Call them all. Not happening.

    Because at the end of the day, it will be one more in the record books,
    one more for the highlight reel,
    one more in the win column,
    and one more
    for the Bad Guy.

    Still undefeated, still undisputed.

    Anyone with half a brain knew Nogueira was throwing his fights against Fedor. He voluntarily agreed to lose his title, have his head bounced off the canvas like a bouncy ball, and sustain multiple concussions all in order to put Fedor over. Just like it was obvious that Randleman gently laid Fedor on the canvas so as to allow him to reverse and finish the fight shortly there after. It doesn't take too keen an eye to see this.

    Chael is spot on the money about all fighters losing after leaving Japan for America where they'd encounter real fights. Anderson Silva looked like an absolute fool against a legit, mafia-free Chris Weidman. It's well known at this point.

    Very bad match up for Kale. Fedor is actually going to be the bigger man, all he has to worry about is Kale's wrestling. Kale has no knock out power, he's not great at submissions, and in fact has been submitted by lesser submission artist then Fedor. I think Fedor notches this out pretty easily. I can't believe it's 2018 and we are talking about either of these guys honestly, it's so bizarre. MMA is so starving for stars. Imagine Joe Montana trying to play again. Let Fedor ride off into the sunset he's earned it. If he beats Kale it's like welp who cares? If he loses, he lost to a good not great MW past his prime.

    His only early losses were outside Japanese soil. More proof all fights in Japan were fixed.

    I'd love to see Sonnen tell both Henderson and Couture (both of whom are his mentors) that they purposely threw their fights in Japan :D.

    Way back when I texted Chael multiple times at that number (I'm sure many did) and he responded at a high rate. Guy is a first rate troll, second rate felon.
