All these guys Dana calls great fighters and legends of the sport and Fedor has that one phony blemish and Dana has the balls to call him overrated. What does the man have to do? Beat god himself? I kow what it is, sign with the UFC. Then Dana will be selling everyone on how he never lost and is a wrecking machine. Dana is so wrong when he talks about Fedor....
I wonder if Fedor is good enough to finish Babalu yet? (sorry, low blow, I admit it)

Definitely agree with that first part. There's still Werdum to beat, but yeah the HW division everywhere is pretty weak now.

And that number was completely debunked, Fedor said in an interview that if it was anywhere near that much he would have taken it in a heartbeat, Co-Promotion or not. He also said after his 3 fight contract is over he's very interested in the UFC.

Funny how people are saying cro cop and nog are past their prime now. Come on, they are both still in their early 30's.

To me it seems UFC just proved they arent as elite as they thought they were.

how long will it take for him to get to the ufc? he fights like once a year? by the time those 3 fights are up he will probably stop fighting.

As a fan of Cro Cop, I'll have to play devil's advocate because I'm pro reason. The speculations of CC being past his prime is based not only on his underwhelming performances, such as every single fight he's had since he's been in the UFC, with the exception of his debut tomato can fight and secondly, the speculations are based on Cro Cop saying that he was past his prime from his own lips. Hard to argue with the source.

Nog.... he had one good performance against Couture, prior to that, I'll give him a pass with the whole staff infection thing with Mir, but his performance against Tim Silvia, even though he won, it was still a huge disappointment in terms of how he performed.

Due to Nog's most recent performance, where he stands as far as the "past his prime" issue at least allows room for debate and speculation, but Cro Cop.... he sort of admitted it himself

Have you ever seen Cro Cop fight in his prime in Pride and now? He lost quickness that was his primary strength. Its not age its ring miles. Dude, really, come on now. Step it up.
