    around 10:11 minute. Will be ready to fight towards the end of the year.

    would be sweet, but with Arlovski maybe fighting Mir... I wonder who's next for him.

    pretty cool to see his admiration for Jos

    Jesus Christ can you imagine:



    Aldo Vs. McGregor
    Werdum Vs. Fedor


    As the Main - Co Main....would destroy PPV buys.

    Him vs Stipe if Arlovski fights Mir and JDS fights Overeem. That's probably the least marketable fight out of the 3 possible fights for the HW title atm so it's perfect as co-main.

    Yes from Aldo and McGregor fight selling the card lol. Fedor was doing 200-300k buys in America for affliction.

    He is not a big name in America when will people realise this.

    Not really. CM Punk vs. random dude would do better than Werdum vs. Fedor.

    Hasn't Werdum already beat Fedor? Not a match I want to see. Mir/Fedor to prove he is back. Fedor wins, Andre then maybe Werdum.

    My first thought too. But I imagine they gotta give Fedor a Bigfoot rematch or something first.

    Maybe JDS depending on his injury and how rehab goes, etc. I could see them build that up as ex champ who knocked Werdum out of UFC title contention (and out of the UFC completely) in his debut, etc.

    People who buy PPVs don't know who Fedor is. And if they look him up they'll see Werdum already beat him.

    Maybe the biggest card ever. Especially if fedor destroys someone like Arlovski before getting the fight.

    1.4 million buys

    Or even joining the UFC lol.

    His fans are serious looneys

    This wouldn't out do UFC 100 and if you have 2 Brazilians champs defending you would have to do the card in Brazil.
