Yeah, it's too bad the seeding isn't more accurate. As it is if both men win their first round they will face each other in the second round. That is nowhere near as exciting!

No, I'd sign up at 5dimes and get Fedor at -335...

I'm not in a betting mood right now. Though those are good odds. If he does loose it will probably be an upset and he's beaten bigger guys!

Man are people sleeping on BigFoot. Fedor is the favorite here and rightfully so but BigFoot has a solid chin handles adversity well (see the Kyle fight). While BigFoot may not be the most technical striker he isn't horrible and he does have a substantial size advantage in this fight. You also have to consider that Fedor may get over hesitant should he land BigFoot in trouble after the Werdum incident. BigFoot is a legit threat to Fedor here and people need to recognize that. I don't think BigFoot is winning this fight but just as they did in the Werdum fight the odds justify a small wager on the guy that is not getting the respect he deserves.

Your not getting Fedor/Overeem. If neither Big Foot or Werdum play spoiler I have a feeling Fedor will get "injured" I have practically zero faith in Fedor/Overem happening EVER.

Well it is true that he has a solid chin but let us remember Fedor's hands. He hits so hard he has broken his hand on numerous occasions. That can put anyone out in a flash!

And he lost his last fight by rushing in to quick which gave him his what many consider his first loss ever, now lets ask the question of whether Fedor will question himself or put the nail in the coffin if he gets the chance.

You also need to look at training partners and Antonio Silva trains at ATT with Jeff Monson one of the best top game grapplers in the HW division. If Fedor ends up on top Silva should be competent enough to survive. I don't think its nearly out of the relm of possibility for Silva to steal a decision in a three round fight.

Well that is the question. Can Fedor rebound or will he go in there with the same mentality. Honestly I think he can go back in there and get er done cause he wouldn't otherwise!

If he goes in with the same mentality that is good its if his mentality is different that is more worrisome to me.

Uhm, I am not sure where you were going with this but you basically just said that you think he can win because otherwise he would lose. Sorry but that bit made me LMAO.

Different as in he's less of the man he was or more of an unstable man? I'd hope more of the later. Things just look interesting!

Honestly I am thinking that Silva looks in the best shape of his life at the weigh ins while Fedor actually looks a little more saggy than his usual barrel chested self. Actually both Russians looked kind of soft at the weigh ins. I am thinking that a Silva upset is looking more and more likely.
