i agree with whomever mentioned the whole "attitude" thing about him. i don't want any of the "boxing bullshit" involved in MMA, although we already do have enough of it. but, if he wants to try his luck, fine... as long as it doesn't turn into the circus boxing did! that's honestly the only thing i worry about. the day i see it starting to happen is the day i wash my hands of it. and personally, having an ex-boxer of maywhether's caliber get into, or even talk about MMA, really scares me!
i also think that he shouldn't be catered to. no special treatment. he starts in MMA? he's got to build himself up from can status. if people like Nog don't get immediate title shots, being in an even better MMA organization before coming over, than an ex-boxer certainly doesn't deserve anything handed to him.
also, whomever mentioned his pay-rate in boxing, there's a big point about that. if he comes in to MMA, how much does he think he's going to get a fight? because if they can't find a way to entice Fedor with money, and if they can't buy some of those great Japanese stars who opted for K-1, then what does it say if Dana shits all over legit MMA fighters and pays Floyd 5 million for his first fight, let alone if it's for a title straight away???
