So what does he do? Brings the event to us for FREE so now the casual fan who likes to watch UFC but doesnt wanna pay for it will get introduced to Fedor without paying a dime. Will see some highlights and then think "Id defintly pay to watch him fight Randy Coutre" thats just my theory??? Sounds good though doesnt it?
I hope that the MMA planets are in line so that this can be true. Surely God loves us enough to make this happen now that Randy has called out Fedor??!!

Just for the record I am not a TUF noob and started watching UFC about 1 1/2 years before the first TUF season came out.

I watched the first 7 or 8 UFC events back in the day then my life got very hectic and I just kind of forgot about it. Luckily TUF1 came along and rekindled my love for MMA. The TUF series is one of the best things that could have happened for MMA in the states and I seriously don't see what people have against it. I look at it like pot, as a gateway drug to lure the obsessive and addiction prone freaks into the clutches of some truely great experiences.

Rag on me for digging TUF but whatever, I'm no less a fan than anyone else.

Here's the complete fight, not just the highlights:

Fedor vs CroCop

I'd say Mirko hurt Fedor as much as he'd been hurt. Twice the fight was stopped to mop the blood off Fedor's face. The first two rounds it took Fedor over three minutes to get the take down... don't think I've ever seen that before. In the third round, Fedor went to the high kick twice... don't think I've seen that either. Usually it's 'punch-two-three, stun the guy and take him down' for Fedor. Not once was Mirko threatened by submission on the ground... a tribute to his leg strength and conditioning. His legs kept Fedor from passing side guard twice, and did a fair bit of damage while keeping Fedor in the full guard. Both seemed pretty winded by the end, and if it went another round I think the advantage would have gone to Fedor to do more. I also think if Mirko hadn't had quite the traction problems (slipping), he would have used more kicks through the stand up. Good fight though.... two bulls locking horns.

lol for someone who is defending TUF so much it's funny to see you immediately distancing yourself from being a "TUF noob". I agree with your statement though, as long as once you become a hardcore fan you grow with it and realize that MMA is lot more than just the US and tough guys with tattooes.

I have probably been watching MMA longer than anyone here, and I agree with you, theres nothing wrong with people who were exposed to MMA by the SPIKE TV programs. Its bullshit for anyone to try and act like they are not real MMA fans because they are new. When our sport grows we all benefit.

People should try to encourage broader horizons in MMA, rather than try to single out newer fans.

Once again no disrespect if it was a genuine question...just neeed to vent my displeasure with a certain attitiude some people carry around here.

I love great analogies, and that was a good one.

I've been a fan since the first UFC and also enjoy the Ultimate Fighter. Your description was right on.

Repped for a great analogy.

Well, Dana did mention Fedor at the UFC 74 press conference as well. He said people keep asking him when UFC will come to Canada, when he will sign Fedor, etc. and said "I'm working on it. It takes time." So he has ackowledged him before.
Introducing Fedor at 75 would be a great idea, though, because it's free TV and so many people would get to see it. They could get a jump on hyping him to the North American audience that really doesn't know him yet.
One more reason to watch.

so if Fedor joins, it is sorta guaranteed that Crocop will fight Noguerra if CC wins?
