    Actually that's exactly the fight I wanna see for his last fight war fedor

    Edit: I think Ryan has slowed down enough to where he is very hittable for fedor. Fedor just needs to work on solutions for the ground

    Protect his chin and he might land one like the last fight, which Fedor was suppose to lose.

    It still seems anticlimactic. I'd rather see a rematch with Big Foot or Werdum.

    Call me crazy but I think it makes sense anyway. The last man to defeat him.

    Fedor hasn't deserved a title shot IMHO.

    He beat the #2 ranked HW in the org and now ranked #3... not too many others in line.

    This is a baller move on Fedor's part. Most expected him to KO a corpse in his farewell fight. Instead he wants another shot at the strap. Bold. Super high risk. But Bold!

    But then again this could just be the Tim Johnson logic again. Train your boy to beat him, then you train to beat him. Long time to practice fundamentals of strategy.

    Hope it happens and hop Fedor wins. Would be the story book ending to an amazing career.

    If he hadn't beat Tim, you might have a point, as it stands, he's quite deserving of one.

    I wasn't sure he would want it if Moldavsky lost but it sounds good.

    Ahhh no he isn’t ….. if Ranpage and Tim Johnson get you a title shot ….scrap the division…..Embarrassing

    Wish Fedor would just retire with a win ….. Bader scrambling his brain won’t make me happy

    Moldavsky won the interim belt from Tim Johnson... And I don't know what you're expecting from a division that is even underwhelming in the UFC.

    I agree that it is not a very prestigious strap but have to admire going for the most challenging and high level fight they can put together for a retirement bout. I am not sure it ends well but it seems a fitting farewell and I'll watch
