Best shot at taking Fedor's belt?

What HW fighter, not signed with Pride do you guys think would have a good shot at taking Fedor's belt?

Hmm.

Maybe Tim Sylvia.. He's pretty good man.

You don't know who I am? You must be new.

I think that Sylvia would have a good chance standing with Fedor because of his reach advantage, but if Emelianenko would take him to the ground, it would be all Fedor. I would see it much like when he fought Schilt.

Sylvia would get killed by fedor. He's way to good at submission's. Plus he'd take him down and ground and pound. Even though arlovski just lost to sylvia i'd say him. He will beat tim in their rubber match and he'd give fedor a good fight.

I think Fedor has been in a league of his own and I haven't seen any fighter who could take his belt.Although who knows how things will be with his recovery of his hand.You never know how these things can work out.

I know he is not in his prime anymore and the chances of this fight ever happening is one in a million, but I would like to see Don Frye in there with Emelianenko. I think that would be one crazy fight.

Just me day dreaming...

So you are saying that you think Hughes (a WW) would have a better chance of beating Henderson then Franklin (a natural MW)?

Yet you say that Sylvia would not even stand a chance against Fedor on the feet? Now that is some funny stuff.

I think some poeple must forget pride calls it weight classes diffrently then UFC. Hughes 169, dan henderson 183 lbs. Not a good match up really.

Reading is a big part of forums? LOL! ^You stated it right there.^ By saying that the only fighter that would have a chance in Pride is Hughes, you in fact are saying that Hughes, a Welterweight, would have a better chance of beating Henderson then Franklin, a Middleweight. Now tell me how I didn't read what you posted.

Also, I didn't ever say that Sylvia would beat Fedor. I in fact believe that Emelianenko would win that fight as well. All I said was that if it were to stay on the feat that Sylvia would have a chance, but that if Fedor got it to the ground, he would win.

To say the words, "there is no way in hell" in the MMA World, proves that someone knows absolutely nothing about this great sport.
