    Training in a gym with modern techniques and equipment, he seems to have upped his game and is taking this seriously. I remember prior to the Werdum fight seeing videos of him training at a playground in Stary Oskol and thinking WTF?

    Anyway, good to see some Fedor threads on the board in lieu of the overload of McGregor threads Sherdog was seeing not too long ago.

    Not a pic of him training, but he's in an MMA gym in work out attire, thus I made an assumption.

    Imagine a 250 pound shredded UberFedor entering the octagon :eek:

    Whoever he is up against would piss his pants right there

    If this is something he really wants to do (ie. no external pressure forcing his return) which seems to be the case, and he takes his training seriously, Fedor can easily be top 3-5 in the world even at near-40.

    Is that an MMA gym? From the picture could be some fitness joint with old people on treadmills and shit

    Hopefully he comes back serious and ready in shape!

    Near the end I think he had some kind of undefeated complex and didn't try as hard, like keeping his arm in Werdum's control and etc

    Like GSP - you need to lose to improve!

    I don't think the quality of his facilities matter the most.
    Indeed we all saw the shocking true story of how the superior Soviet ubermensch Ivan Drago with all his technology was defeated by Rocky Balboa's archaic training methods.

    What matters more is who he is training with.
    Fedor with Rasputin in his corner = goes 0/3 and gets cut from the UFC. UFC dies (like every other org Fedor failed). Fedor Reebok tops $1 reduced to clear.

    Fedor with GoatVolk Han, Sergei GOATitinov and Andrei KopyGOATov in his camp/corner = goes 3/3 and wins the gold.

    If Fedor does make a run at the UFC, I definitely think he won't be half-assing it. I feel that he has some revenge to payback and it has been eating away at him during his retirement. Ultimately, he wants to defeat Werdum and solidify his status as the GOAT.

    No, they would not. They would promptly kick his old ass.

    I would personally like to see him in 1 or 2 mid level fights first. If Fedor was somehow able to get his chin back he could still be relevant.

    Fedor looking stacked makes me happy, must have been a bumper harvest in the motherland this year.

    I have to agree. I would rather see him stay retired, than come back a shadow of his former self.
