What it will take to beat Fedor

A sambo coach. As far as I know no fighter has done that, assuming that some jiujitsu and boxing will do it for them. It seems to me nobody facing him has taken sambo seriously as it's own legitimate martial art that belongs in the ring/cage and is worth learning. For that reason they have little defense for a lot of the things Fedor does. Sambo armbars aren't like bjj armbars, the striking is different etc
IMO

What do you think it will take?

Fedor is the best Sambo practitioner for multiple years running. That simply wouldn't work.

P.S. Wrong section

This post doesn't belong in the UFC area.

Ok, that being said I think it will be someone with strong Vale Tudo that doesn't back up. The other option is an explosive wrestler who gets top control and is so focused on submission defense they give a boring fight or cut up Fedor a bit with forearm/elbow strikes.

Unless it is a puncher's chance KO, I think the person who beats Fedor will be one that just grinds him out to a decision.

Purely based on his stats, the only way to beat this guy is referee stoppage due to a cut (hopefully with a legal punch next time)

I think the problem getting a Sambo coach is the good ones are Russians and as Fedor is some kind of national hero finding one to help sombody train against Fedor is gonna be hard, although I do think this is why the Arlovski fight could be alot more interesting.

Maybe. Lesnar needs to reeeeally pick up his sub defence to beat a guy like Fedor IMO. I don't think any stand-up fighter or wrestler will stand a chance against Brock, but sub artists will remain his achilles heel for a while. 2 years might not be enough.

Cmon as good as Lesnar could become, Fedor has and always will eat wrestlers for breakfast. I think the only way would be a really awesome striker with unstoppable takedown defense. But I trualy dont think there is anyone who can stuff Fedor all night. I would say best strategy is to just sharpen up those elbows.
