It's his stupid management hand picking fights for em.

Overlooking the Brock Lesnar title fight had to have been one of the biggest blunders of all time. I'm quite certain he would have dethroned em taking the UFC title in the process. THEN if he lost to JDS or Cain it would have been a passing of the torch. At least like Big Nog he got his shine in the UFC. But nope...instead his management committs career suicide for him.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

When Rizzo hasn't fought in 2 years, with his last victory being Ken Shamrock...maybe I was a bit harsh with calling him a can, but I just wanted and expected a far better opponent for Fedor. The winner of Barnett/Cormier, or a mid tier UFC guy (I know I know)

Just seems he's back to scraping the barrel and targeting easy wins.

A win over Rizzo does nothing for his career and if he happens to lose, that would be disastrous.

It's two over the hill fighters trying to recapture their former glory. At this point I think he's honestly just beating old men, cans and up and commers that have no business in the ring with him. He's just picking up a paycheck.

Well actually it gives him a 3 fight winning streak so fighting guys like Rolles in the next fight would be out of the question,and as far as realistic opponents go, Rizzo is a good one.

Yeah, but who the heck does he fight after he fights Rizzo? He's going to have either exiled UFC fighters or washed up fighters. Another option is up and coming fighters who aren't ready.

Rizzo has also been looking for a way back in to the UFC lately and this could be it.

He's two wins over Barnett in his career, serious leg kicks and 1 punch power. If he's trained hard for this fight he's a good test for fedor

Well he maybe looking for a way into the UFC but I'm not sure this is it. Fedor is looking to go out with a bang and if could just make Rizzo look like a washout. Though Rizzo hasn't fought for years.

I've always wondered how a fight like that would go. That's when Bob Sapp was in his prime. Nowadays it wouldn't be much of a fight.
