(Yet) Another Angle on Fedor

Fedor's decision is actually saner than it appears. Forget all the co-promotion BS for a second. First, ask yourself how many times Fedor has fought in a cage, or in the States. Now, consider that Fedor doesn't seem to want a title fight right off the bat. In the UFC, no matter how you slice it, he'd be in there against top flight competition from day one, be it Lesnar or Carwin. Even an older Couture is no walk in the park.

But the second tier competition in Strikeforce is far more manageable. So, Fedor signs a one year contract with them, gets his feet wet... and then sees how things are looking and moves to the UFC or doesn't.

The fact is, great fighters fail when they jump head-first into the UFC (Cro Cop anyone?).

There's also the whole issue of Strikeforce's affiliation with CBS -- nobody really knows where that's headed, though it's entirely possible that Fedor does -- and likes what he sees, at least enough to wait a year and see what happens.

I work on my tan harder than I'll have to work on you!

yeah to some extent fedor will eliminate the whole heavyweight division if he goes to UFC. thiers no doubt that fedor will become champion in his first 2 ufc fights. fedor made a good decision getting strikeforce which offered more money and probably better fighters (i dont know any of their fighters lol)if you were fedor what would you choose? UFC or Strikeforce?
