I like this match-up a lot better because this is a HUGE test for Fedor, and an even bigger one for Tim. I feel pretty confident Tim is going to win this one, only way I see Fedor managing to win this is by submission.
I agree. But I DO think Tim will win.
ALSO - Listen folks. Tim had one fight left on his contract, and it was revoked, so he could go elsewhere.
Let's remember that Dana White is a very smart man. He PROBABLY said to Tim..
"Tim, go fight outside the UFC, and beat Fedor, so the world will shut up."
If Tim does beat Fedor, it only makes Randy look BETTER, considering Randy smoked a less-then-100%-Tim. And it makes Dana look better, because Dana has said that Fedor was afriad of the UFCs heavyweights.
