Why Belfort vs. Fedor Doesn’t Matter

I wish I could say it did. I really do.

I wish I could say that the world’s greatest heavyweight, the most consistent and dominant fighter in the history of the sport, fighting anyone is significant, but it’s not. Vitor Belfort (18-8 MMA, 7-4 UFC, #9 IWMMAR) is a great fighter, but he’s a middleweight, and hasn’t fought a strict heavyweight since his bout with Heath Herring (28-14-0-1 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in 2001. This is a guy who, while probably only 15-20 pounds lighter than Fedor Emelianenko (30-1-0-1 MMA, #1 IWMMAR), fights two weight classes lower, and is stepping in against a fighter who routinely beats fighters 30 pounds heavier than he is.

Giving Fedor a weight advantage is like giving Brock Lesnar (4-1 MMA, #2 IWMMAR) an experience advantage. It’s overkill.

In fairness to Belfort, he’s coming off of an incredible win over Matt Lindland (21-6 MMA, 9-3 UFC), and finished him faster than Fedor did (and less controversially) when Lindland and Emelianenko met in Russia. But that’s not what the issue is. The issue is, Vitor is not a relevant opponent. With two recent wins over respectable, relevant opposition, Emelianenko was expected to meet a third, but he won’t.

All I can say is, what the F*ck is going to happen to the rankings if vitor wins, The middleweight rankings will be changed, the heavyweight and the P4p. That will just make things very very different.

They'll definitely be shot all to hell.

Also, if Jake Shields beats Jorge Santiago, it'll be craziness.

yeah, if anybody was to say fedor is taking the easy route they are deffinatley lying,
The fight will be easier, but he is putting WAY more on the line.

The only way this fight can garner any attention and importance is if Vitor wins. Then, I feel like everything would be a mess.

Mostly I'm worried about the hardcore Lesnar fans.

jancyrani has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'd guess that it would be a (not too extreme) Mesomorph, but really it depends on, and probably influences, your style and technique. A lot of Ectomorphs have good reach with punches and kicks and some endomorphs are difficult to KO due to their size. I'd say you'd want to be about 3:8:4 or something similar. hope this helps
