Good for him, but its clear that Strikeforce or M1 or whoever the hell makes the choices in that clusterfunk has been doing there best to pick favorable match ups for Fedor. That is pretty damn lame in my book. People can say what they want about the UFC, but they do not try to protect a guy from tough fights just because he is a big draw. Liddell fought Couture three times, Rampage, Shogun, Rashad, and Franklin. Lesnar is the biggest draw in mma and he got Couture, Mir twice, Carwin, and Cain. That is why I have a lot more respect for the UFC then I do for Strikeforce.
He also fought Jeremy Horn, Babalu and Tito, if anything Chuck had one of the most padded records in MMA, atleast while he was Champion.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.
