I don't know if my question was misunderstood or what.

I'm asking do you think anyone has a better chance to beat Fedor than Fedor has of beating them?

Surely not 47% of you think that someone has a better chance of beating Fedor than he has of beating them?

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

My problem is its so circumstantial as to where the fight happens, I think Fedor's style is very diverse and lends its self to diffrent enviroments and rules, (Example, Randy relies on the cage, Shogun has vicious soccer kicks and stomps) while alot of other fighters dont have a universally adaptable style. I also think the Tim/Fedor fight will answer a very big question as to wether or not Fedor still has the dedication that led him to great things in Pride, I question wether Fedor still has it in him to go to war the way he used to after so much time away from fighting serious competitors.

There's one guy who I feel would beat Fedor, and that guy is Antonio Silva.

First of all, Big Foot is a really big guy, who is quite athletic and talented. He has good stand-up and a really good ground game, not to mention that he trains with a great camp.

I think Silvia has as good a chance as any. But I still think Fedor will win.

I think Big Foot needs some big fights before he is ready for Fedor I dont think he has fought anyone who matches up with Fedor in any single aspect of MMA, I think Big Foot vs Sylvia would be a great fight though.

People--especially Gary Shaw and EliteXC--are making the claim that Antonio Silva will be the man to defeat Fedor, FAR too soon. He's a young man, with great potential, but he is still extremely rough around the edges. Maybe in 2-3 years he'd give Fedor a run for his money, but if he can't even beat a fat Ricco--a fight I thought Silva lost--then what chance has a he got against the plumber of the ring?

Yup, his fight with Ricco was the first time I saw Antonio Silva in action and he looked extremely unimpressive. Until he is proven against top competition people should refrain from making such claims, IMO.

Well, Silva was injured going into the Ricco fight.

I don't give a shit what Gary Shaw has to say, I think Silva has the tools to beat Fedor. The guy would have a size difference on him, but unlike guys like Hong, Silva actually knows how to fight in MMA. He's experienced on the ground, standing and is with ATT.
