1 more reason to think Dana will announce Fedor at 75

While watching the countdown to UFC 75, Dana was talking about top heavyweights and mentioned Randy, Cro Cop, and FEDOR. Now knowing how Dana is he will never even acknowledge (on TV) someone exsist until they are part of the UFC.

Just my opinion.

Possible. It would be nice. I've never seen Fedor in action before. I've only been actively watching MMA for 2 years and only UFC, but i've heard great things about him. I'd like to see it.

question for you was the ultimate fighter that got you into it

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

well, Rogan has recognized Fedor and Noguiera (before signing with UFC) for their PRIDE fights long before this. When Cro Cop debuted, they said that he was probably the Number 2 or 3 Heavyweight in the world, behind Fedor and possibly Minotauro.

The thing that makes me believe an announcement is coming, is that Fedor and Couture are supposed to be in attendance at UFC 75 (supposedly under promotional purposes only)

Joe Rogan always says what's going through his head at that moment, and he's a fan like any of us, so he's pretty open to talking about guys who are not a part of the UFC.

Dana, on the other hand, is pretty calculated. If Dana is talking about Fedor openly, without being asked directly about Fedor, then I think there's a pretty good bet that this might be happening.

I have heard reliable information that the UFC offered Fedor a very good deal and a ton of money, while I haven't seen too much reliable stuff to the contrary.

Personally, I'll be watching from California on Saturday night, enjoying the fight and hoping that this happens.

WAR DAN HENDERSON!

I dont see the problem with guys getting into MMA after watching TUF. It was the first show that really attracted attention to MMA on a wide scale level and if people watched it, thought "This is awesome" and then became hardcore UFC fans then fair play to them. It just goes to show that TUF did its job.

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.

latest rumor is that 1.8mil a fight and can do sambo in russia. but when your source is from sherdog who really knows. but i think is pretty good chance fedor will be announced on sat. Obviously won't know till its announced but all signs are pointing to yes

learned long ago MMA may be a sport but the UFC is a business.
