While I'm aware of the fact that Hendo beat Fedor pretty recently, I still think Emelianenko would put up a better fight against Dos Santos and voted accordingly.

LHW: Rua, Gustafsson
MW: Sonnen
LW: Pettis

I'd love to be proven wrong but Fedor will never fight in the UFC. His management team wanted too much when Fedor was a better draw and still can't face reality after his past performances. They will throw out the "Fedor wants to fight in the UFC" statements but never follow up on the signing realities with what he has now to bring to the table.

Fedor will only sign with the UFC if he has no alternative, nobody else wants him and his idiotic management team actually faces reality.

I don't see that happening.

i would be pissed if he got a title fight right off the bat, i did hint about this scenario in a different thread though and said it would be a great opportunity to bring him in, i would actually prefer to bump up mir for the title and do some match swapping and have fedor take the lowest spot on the card. This way the card gets a upgrade, fedor gets a stepping stone, fans get to see feor in the ufc (the ones that still want im in it...i personally dont)

all in all win, win

will it happen, probably not

The fact that no replacement has been announced tells me they're trying to work through the loops to get Overeem cleared. Usually they have a contingency plan, but it doesn't look like it at the moment. If I were Vadummy/M-1 I'd call UFC and go for it.

No co-promotion
- ppv share
- $250,000 - $500,000

Eat the costs, cuz if FEDOR wins his stock would go back up. He has EVERYTHING TO GAIN. Everybody knows he's not in contention, but this is no ordinary situation. JDS has no opponent that's the bottomline. Who's going to sell...Mark Hunt isn't known. Mir deserves it, but is slated to face Cain. Werdum...he just lost to Overeem. Cain, nobody wants to see a rematch. Bigfoot just lost to Cormier. Fedor lost three fights in a row prior to his confidence booster wins...but he has one thing everybody else doesn't have and that's his branding.

If Fedor somehow came into the picture we'd look at 500,000ppvs. Not quite Brock numbers, but significantly larger than any other heavyweight out there.

Hype wise it'll sell. Any other replacement would be a bust. Think about it UFC basically bought out SF to get Overeem and Diaz. If M-1 doesn't act they've lost a perfectly good opportunity.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I'd like to see Fedor in the UFC but not at HW and obviously not with a title shot right now, that would be absurd.

I voted Mir even though I think Dos Santos will blow through him. He is the only logical choice if we are operating under the assumption that MMA is actually a sport.

I voted Fedor just because he always seems to put on exciting fights win or lose.

I voted Hunt because I like the match-up, and Fedor already has a fight scheduled in Russia so it isn't happening. Also, I would be quite pissed if Fedor walked in and got a title shot. Hell I think Couture would come out of retirement to finally get his shot at him.

There's a better chance of hell freezing over before Dana brings Fedor to the UFC let alone gives him a title shot! As much as I like Fedor and will always be a fan, this would not make any sense.

Mir is the most deserving of the title shot at this point. He's coming off 3 wins in a row.
