    Can the politics be set aside to set up this fight between the two best heavyweights outside of the UFC? Would really love to see this one.

    Would love to see this one as well. I think it's possible since Minakov has been operating as a free agent working with multiple orgs. He may be open to signing a one fight deal. It would then be up to WSOF to risk their champ losing to him. Would be a very interesting fight.

    Ali is the manager of both guys! So it depends on the Bellator deal

    Bibulatov was still signed by WSOF when he went to fight at ACB?
    I wonder that because I think Ivanov could fight for ACB or EFN in that case

    Minakov just went life and death with an absolute bum and Ivanov nearly got stabbed to death with samurai swords to the point where he was in a coma for months and hasn't been the same since he returned so the real question is who cares and why would make a thread about a "superfight" between these guys when theyre not even in the same org.

    Clearly not a cynical and obnoxious douche such as yourself.

    He's a Fedor butt buddy. He's cool with Fedor fighting Joey Beltran but evidently doesn't think this would be a good fight.

    I thinks it's possible, WSOF vs. FNG.

    Is Minakov out of his Bellator contract?

    I'm a Fedor fan too! He's my all time favorite fighter actually, it's a shame when fanboys like that to sling mud at fighters due to their own insecurities. Grow up FFS!

    This is one of the top fights that can be made at HW outside UFC. Would be cool if they could make it happen.

    Hey you're not wrong there, Mitrione was a legit fight. Shame it fell through. I've just been fooled by Fedor plenty especially with his UFC bs so I suppose I'm jaded. Really don't know why Beltran's name got thrown in the mix though if that's not going to be the fight. He doesn't move any needles and Fedor v. Kongo or Rampage would be big selling fights.
    Beltran's name is in the mix because other guys want BIG MONEY to fight Fedor. Fedor is already making BIG MONEY so for Bellator its cheaper to showcase Fedor against a guy who will fight him for 100k. Bellator signed Fedor for 3 fights + one more if he wants to it may be wise to build him in that way and have him fight a Kongo, Rampage or Mitrione in his next fight. No one had a problem with Rampage fighting Beltran in Bellator, why is it a big deal if 40 year old Fedor does?

    I personally would rather see Fedor vs Rampage but just explaining Beltran from the business side.

    That's close enough to saying your for it. Might as well be licking his butthole.

    Reading comprehension isnt one of your strengths I see. Not once did I say I want to see that fight I was just explaining it from the business standpoint. Fedor is probably making 1-2 million a fight with Bellator so I could understand how they would want him to fight someone who wont ask for much of a purse compared to someone like Rampage who will probably also want a mill. Its not that hard to understand, really.

    I understand that i just dont give him a pass when he said he wanted top competition. It's all moot anyways cuz he's facing mitrione who's actually very good.
