Fedor vs. Kimbo??
 
Would anyone support this fight? Both on losing streaks. Both small Heavyweights. Both have taken a beating by smaller guys and bigger guys. Both have good hands. Fedor would definitely have the ground advantage. Both will never be in the UFC (again). And let's face it, both have been a bit overrated.

And both would likely cash in. :thumbsup:

I would pay to see it. Anyone down for this?

I would pay to see it, but its ridiculous fedor would kill him. James toney vs anybody willing to trade with him would bee good to. Toney vs page,jds,etc if there willing to trade my money is on toney.

As crazy as it sounds this would be an entertaining fight with both having a 50/50 chance at winning. Even though Fedor is the overall better fighter and can take Kimbo down and sub him with ease he probably wont. He will choose to stand and bang and to Fedor that means swing for the fences till someone drops. For that reason Kimbo may very well beat Fedor.

I'm not the biggest Fedor fan but a loss to Kimbo would be HORRIBLE for him and the entire Japanese MMA world. For that reason I say no just let him retire and not make a complete ass of himself.

Not at all.... Fedor is overrated IMO but he would destoy Kimbo standing. And if it went to the ground Fedor would get the submission very quick.

Toney's a joke.

I think Fedor tops Kimbo also, but would be very curious how this would play out. Kimbo can bang on the feet and he's fought some pretty tough guys.

how are you going to say Toney is a joke when you know damn well if anyone was going to trade with him he would knock them out. James Toney would knock fedor out if he would trade with him. To me if your going to put kimbo in there and only base the fight where kimbo is striking u can't discredit toney. u give the same situation where no ground game just striking toney can beat more mma fighters hands down than kimbo.

Eh, Nah, he's a joke at MMA. He's a decent Boxer. I suppose the Ray Mercer thing could happen again, but I doubt it. MMA is not boxing. It's chess compared to checkers. The striking is different. I doubt any fighters would be dumb enough to do what Silvia did. Even so, Mercer is an MMA joke as well, Kimbo proving that.

I doubt Fedor would take the fight, but he might. But he truly would have nothing to gain, but then again, he had nothing to gain from Henderson. The only plus would be the cash. I think this could actually be his biggest payday, especially with Zuffa promoting it.

Yes but if it was an all out striking war you do agree Toney has a better chance at beating Fedor than kimbo does?

Overrated or not, Kimbo wouldn't stand a chance.
