    What a time to be alive as an MMA fan. October cannot come soon enough.

    Let's forget the biases and forget the names and everything behind them, we have a classic matchup of Striker vs Wrester: an undefeated champion wrestler vs arguably the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.

    Most of you will doubt him as the GOAT, especially after losing the way he did, but when we speak of MMA, one name comes to mind and it's his.

    In the red corner: Undefeated champion, from humble beginnings (and somewhat shady ones, given his past ties) he emerged as a force to be reckoned with in MMA. Not a single soul has shared the cage with him and withstood his wrestling and GnP. The time has come for him to finally solidify his championship against one of the most known - if not THE most known - cage fighters of all time.

    In the blue corner: Lethal standup artist who knocked out the best of the best in the sport. The GOAT ! MMA incarnate ! Started fighting overseas and effortlessly became a champion, disposing of his opposition, and cemented himself as arguably the best mixed martial artist of all time. I am, of course, talking about Fedor Emelianenko, who will face the undefeated Chael P. Sonnnen on October 11, live, free, and on Paramount TV.

    I absolutely cannot wait for these two titans to clash, and I for one, will be supporting The American Gangster.

    Bless you all.

    I just don't see Chael controlling Fedor on the mat. Maybe I just don't want to.

    This isn't a clash of well rounded fighters

    Both have one strong suit with a bunch of holes in their game

    Best MMA matchup ever???

    Easy to control someone who's unconscious.

    In all seriousness if this was the Fedor from pride Chael would be in trouble literally anywhere the fight is

    However 2017/2018 Fedor seems like he just wants to stand and bang, and I don't think he'll be looking for subs off of his back or takedowns of his own. The way Fedor has brawled in his last few fights could be harmful against Chael too, could easily see him shooting a double if Fedor swings wildly

    Lmao If I could find it quickly, I'd post a Gif of Chael transitioning from mount to side control, then back to mount for no reason XD

    Fedor's in a wheelchair but it will be enough. Fedor via RD 1 Bolivian KO.

    Chael "P" Sonnen and the P stands for Patrick. True story.

    I just don’t see how Chael gets this done.

    Fedor will break his hand on Chael’s skull and Fedor’s hips are so good you can’t even see them.
