Fedor ducks money?
Fedor: the best fighters were in RINGS: Fedor went to RINGS, won 2 tournaments, the best then went to PRIDE: Fedor went to PRIDE, beat 2 top 10 HWs, won the title and kept it for 4 years, Pride died, there was chaos: Fedor eventually landed in Affliction which had awesome HWs and had great plans, Fedor beat 2 top 5 HWs there and wanted to fight 2 more, but Affliction fell apart, then he landed in Strikeforce, where the best HWs were at the time. He beat another toop 10 HW and then finally lost 3 times vs top fighters. Now he wants to go to the UFC to get his revenge.
Fedor wanted to fight Overeem after Overeem beat Rogers and got into the top 10 at HW.
Fedor's camp asked for extra drug testing for the GP, but were refused. Why? You all know why.
Isn't your last line the same reason people defend Ronda's choice not to fight that Brazilian dude? And some clever folks would say that is white knightism
They also never demanded additional drug testing from Barnett who was caught multiple times for roiding. Why? You all know why.
Fedors camp were afraid of Overeem. And they were right to be. After the way Bigfoot smashed Fedor, Ubereem would take his life. Nothing to do with "we want or opponents to be clean" bs.
Fedor didn't give a sh*t. He wanted Overeem to be top 10.
And Overeem failed the eye test soooo badly, while Barnett didn't.
Lol you saw what Rothwell did to Overeem? One solid punch on the head from Fedor would end him and Fedor is known for hitting really hard. Funny how Overeem never called Fedor out during Pride when he wasn't Ubereem but waited until Fedor was out of his prime in Strikeforce.
You messed up the timeline in your events.
First : Barnett vs Fedor, Fedors camp doesn't react even tho they should. Barnett tested positive.
Second : Overeem vs Fedor, Fedors camp doesn't want to risk the same scenario with Barnett. Asks for additional test. Wouldn't you fucking know it... he got caught also.
I'd say they were not smart the first time, got smarter the second time and were 100% right to do so.
You make it sound like it was the other way around.
I'll buy that for a Nickel
12 Fedor threads.
Except for that one time where Dana offered him a kagillion dollars to fight Brock Lesnar in what would've been the biggest HW title fight of all time, and Fedor opted to sign with a B-League and fight a tire-changer instead.
I'll buy that for a ruble.
Sorry I don't deal in Rubles
The only obstacle is Cyborg, she doesn't want to lose her size advantage even though two separate nutritionists have already came out and publicly said she can easily make 135
Why would she need to lose size advantage? Demanding that of her is admitting that Cyborg is superior to Ronda.
Not only this, but I don't remember Fedor ever pulling out from a fight because of an injury.
MMA will never see a champion like him anytime soon.
Im not really a fan of Fedor but i respect that he has fought the best HWs at the time he was fighting.
Umm because UFC will never allow a fighter from a different org to fight catchweight fight between weight classes that don't exist in UFC for 1 fight?
Superior in what? Certainly not in skill
A superior fighter. Meaning she'd kick Ronda's as*. Or at least so Ronda's people think.
Callin yourself the best female fighter, but at the same time being protected by a weight class doesn't work.
