Tired of Fedor

Am I the only one tired of all this speculation on Fedor's signing, look I respect the guy and his ability but the bottom line is either he wants to keep fighting top level opponents or ride his name and rep into some big money for a company no one cares about.

As good as he is I have to believe interest will wane and his legacy will suffer if he spends the next couple of years dominating nonames.

How would beating the same guys he beat in PRIDE in the UFC do anything for him? Before they started signing guys from PRIDE the UFC heavyweight division was a joke. He'll never again fight a no name, no matter where he goes, he's said that before.

He just wants to fight AND compete in his Sambo tournaments, That's why he's not being able to join the UFC




What a stud

Although I dont agree with you saying his legacy will suffer, I am also getting tired of all the speculation. Its kinda of like the UFC buying Pride deal. We all got so tired of hearing that it was final, and then it wasnt, and then it was, and then it wasnt.

I dont think I will be reading any more news unless it starts with "Fedor officially signed..."



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Dude there's plenty of talented fighters in the UFC that he hasn't fought yet. You really think he'd come over and only face Pride guys? Come on dont be retarded. I'm a nice guy so I'll spell it out for you.

Randy Couture
Gabe Gonzaga
Andrei Arlovski
Tim Sylvia
Brandon Vera
Chuck Liddell stated he'd be down to move up
Wanderlei Silva has fought at HW before

These fights and rematches with Nog and Crocop should happen too, if Fedor wants to really go down as the God that so many of you seem to think he is.

Yeah even though this forum has always had Fedors name pop up in almost every thread saying Fedor nuff said and all that which was kinda anoying but ever since the whole speculation of him coming to the ufc or not the threads have came to a whole new high of annoyment. I actually think they should just make an Official thread about this subject and Make it that if people want to talk about it they have to talk about it in there. Dont get me wrong I think Fedor is a great fighter but I am tired about hearing about all this.

Muhammad Ali - Fedor Emelianenko - Alexander Karelin

You're tired of hearing about Fedor, so you create a thread about Fedor. So now people can talk about it in this thread too.

I honestly think that guys like Mirko and Noguiera will be at the top of the UFC before long. Fedor is always going to be at the top of where ever he is. Ultimately its gonna be the same guys at the top of UFC as at the top of PRIDE. If Fedor works somewhere else, it would add a totally different dynamic to the equation. I still would like to see Randy fight Fedor before he retires again though.
