And let's suppose it was because he wanted to fight in Japan. Why do you assume he wants to be in Japan because he wants to fight cans? Japan has a huge amount of amazing fighters, not to mention he's spent the majority of his career in Japan and built a huge fan base.
Maybe because for the last 3 years the fighters he has fought in Japan have been cans.

In the last three years he's fought CC, Hunt, Sylvia, and while lower weight class, Lindland (not a can, albeit not a completely fair match).

He tried entering the UFC, they couldn't come to terms.

Seriously, Fedor > Silva in skill and willingness to fight (not really, they'll both fight anyone I'm just making a statement).

Nogueira could also pretty much be included in the last 3 years thing.

Randy - Nog
Penn - GSP
A.Silva - Forrest

Theres a night of champions in only 3 fights so you still have time for other stuff

Obviously never going to happen but just saying that Dana's timing reason can be got around.

First of all, Syliva is his name. Secondly he didn't fight him in Japan, so the statement, "All the guys Fedor has fought in the last three years IN JAPAN. So Sylvia doesn't apply. He fought Cro Cop more than three years ago, and NOG is way past three years (MLS). Lindland isn't a can, but considering him a viable HW is ludacris. Hunt is a one dimensional fighter with a poor record and never beat a legitimate HW contender. Please don't bring up the Hunt vs. CC fight, if you haven't watched it. Cro Cop won that fight.

I didn't know we were talking Japan only as far as three years ago.

He fought Nog the end of 04, the reason he said you may as well count him is because he's beaten him so many times. Another between them is irrelevant.

He fought CC 2 months over 3 years ago, but 3 years ago in terms of years and such and such. He fought him 3 years ago is my point.

Hunt is a solid HW, not amazing, but he beat Wanderlei and CC, and if he didn't beat CC, he did enough to make some think he won meaning he held his own, making him good.

God this post is crap (Mine).

I don't consider a heavyweight beating Wanderli a big deal. Also the decisions in PRIDE were notoriously erratic. I just don't understand why people act like Fedor is take on all top fighters. He hasn't taken on a 1/2 Heavyweight since Crocop and NOG.

Nor does anyone claim he has.
We're arguing your claim Silva is better because he's willing to fight anyone.
You've incorporated so many double standards towards Silva, such as, "Filho is coming to the UFC so we can count him," while for Fedor you don't count his inevitable fight with barnett.

Yes, Pride decisions were bad. I already made my claim about CC, you made nothing new,

Really? It's 08 and subtracting 3 years would be 05. And when was the last time Nog and Fedor fought, thats right dec 31st of 2004 (the last day of 04 just incase you get confused). So unless you are petty enough to say it misses by one day and that is way past, it seemingly could be used or you will say but it's oct of 08 and I'm talking about 3 years from today but 08 hasn't ended so I still look at is as a whole. Which if you use the to the day argument that will be funny since nobody does that when it comes to when someone fought someone, they look at the year as a whole.

Really the Barnett Fedor fight is happening? When? Barnett has said he's not fighting for Affliction again. As for a matter of fact when is the Arlovski vs Fedor fight going to happen? The UFC is dying for a contender for Silva. That's why I assumed they will fight.

MLS as far as the no one figures a fight from the day rather the year, who exactly would you be talking about besides you? I have never heard anyone say that they only use the year.

According to that logic a fighter who hasn't fought in 20 months has only been out a year. If someone fights in October and then February than it's only been a year. I can see why you only have negative rep.
