Paycheck is a big word in this fight and that's probably the reason. But I agree that he's developed a new fighting style. Now that he's faced Monson and Ishii and can fight now.

am I the only one who cringed when they saw this thread title? no interest in a HW with poor cardio, fighting a guy who was once on of the best...but now fails to beat the best.

The Can Crusher Strikes Back.

I like Lashley since I saw him in the WWE, but he's not good. Fedor is getting really sad right now. At least in SF he fought some respectable people (lost to them anyway) and beat a supercan. This is like Wayne Gretzky playing hockey with kids in high school.

My solution to this would be Fedor fighting Cro Cop and them both retiring immediately after and going away.

Mirko is already scheduled to make his comeback to K-1 against Ray Sefo. I'd see Fedor taking out Mirko though.

Would be interesting to see if Lashley could take him down though.

No doubt if lashley wants to win this one he has to get it done in the 1st round or early in the 2nd.

I'm interested to see what his style is like these days he has been hammering his training with AKA and Paulsen/Barnett for the past 6 months so he must be better now than when he fought Ott. He certainly has the physical ability to get Fedor down and power through a submission, just whether he has enough technical ability to get it done.

Have you seen his last fight at Shark Fight 21: Knothe vs. Lashley? It took place in late November but they aired it later.

Yeah I have a feeling that this is another name being given to Fedor to put in this 'W' column. Fedors last few fights, despite being fat, were not the most competetive of bouts. I never doubted Fedor in either of those fights and I won't doubt him here. If Lashley gets Fedor down, I see a sub win for Fatty Fedor quite easily.

Nah I've looked online for it but couldn't find it. I know he won by Limits pretty quickly but know little about his performance other than that.
