    Why the fuck haven't they rebooked Dada 5000 for another fight? Do they think Stephan Boner going tilt was an accident? They both need to fight AND make a living!

    Dada vs anyone on this card

    Yeah, that was awful.

    Win or lose, Fedor had always been fighting hard for 15+ minutes.

    Dunno if he was injured or just age is catching up with him more and more.

    I guess I should revisit the Henderson fight and see how Fedor did with ol' Decision Dan. I don't recall how Fedor lost that go around.

    Why not throw my hat in the last days to the last emperor. I got Fedor out of love and being the goat. Most well rounded and exciting fighter in MMA history. Both are chiney but Fedor has bigger bombs in his fists and a sub game that's pure muscle memory which at one point was some of the best in MMA history when utilized. So glad he whipped Mir and Sonnen.

    I think Bader is more suited for HW.. He's just been on such a roll that you have to give him some respect now.

    I mean I never REALLY got why people haven't given Bader his just dues. He's a guy you can't sleep on and has some good wins on his resume and found a resurgence after losing to Rumble. Seems like a nice guy too and really he's one of the most looked past fighters I can think of. I'm excited to see this fight with Fedor for the belt.

    Or he could KO Fedor, remember what Maldonado did. Bader hits harder than Maldonado.

    I picked Mitrione to find Bader's chin so I'll take another shot and pick Fedor to do it

    I think the threat is different though, Machida - Straight punches, Fedor - Looping punches. Look at what happened to Arlovski. -Geez that happened a long time ago.

    I think it will come down to who lands what first, 2 powerful fighters. I think it ends in the 1st.
    I can see Bader clipping Fedor via speed and youth. However I can also see Bader taking Fedor down and ending up in a arm bar.
    I can't wait for the fight.
    If Fedor wins he fights DC in the UFC lol.

    Why couldn't Bellator have had this fight sooner? It doesn't have a lot of juice.

    Hope Fedor KO's him in the first. Bader will probably try to dry hump him to death yaawn.
