    ^^Fact. Dana lets his personal feelings dictate the motions of the company too much, both for good and bad.

    ^While that is true, i still dont want to see Barnett in the UFC. Simple fact of the matter is that he was taking steroids, he can talk and avoid the issue as much as he wants, but it doesnt change the facts. He got caught, got in trouble and ran to Japan. I don't want to see some guy who could be on roids (he may not be anymore, but he hasnt really done anything to clear himself; ala. Sean Sherk) fight for any title against a natural athelte. Anyone can say what they want, but the end result is that it's an unfair advantage, and it's unfair to the fighter that would be fighting him. If he wants to prove he's no longer juicing, more power to him and id love to see an athelte of his calibur in the UFC; but till that point, sorry to say, Barnett can go fuck himself.

    I just watched the UFC 79 weigh ins, and fuckin hell, everyone looks like their in shape. Liddell didnt even have much of (or pretty much any) gut, Hughes came in looking good, Silva and St. Pierre both seemed amped as fuck for their fights; Silva especially. After watching those weigh-ins the picks i had in mind just flew out the window. To me it looks like both of these fights are gonna be pretty evenly matched (barring some major ownage) I am so fucking pumped for this card

    They're looking amazing for sure, CC. I'm excited to see Liddell back in the zone again

    “I think he [Fedor Emelianenko] is being a p*ssy. I think Fedor is very good, but you have to fight the top level competitors all the time to keep that status, and he is just not doing that.”
    Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia shares his thoughts on top-ranked Fedor Emelianenko, who just defeated Hong Man Choi via submission (armbar) over the weekend in a bizarre match up at Yarennoka! in Japan. “The Maine-iac” apparently “respects Emelianenko’s skills – just not his choice of opponents.”

    I never thought i would agree with anything Sylvia said...but i do

    ^ come on man, I've already run through this before. If you didnt sign with the ufc based on ur principles, why is everyone running around and calling you a pussy.

    If fedor is indeed a pussy, then why is it that ITS the UFC that refuses for cross promotion fights with fedor.

    Bottom line, he disliked their terms, and wasnt willing to sell his soul to fight the best in the world. Dammit, hes earned that.

    Fedor has been an incredible fighter to date, but nothing in MMA endures without constant challenge. To quote the amazing film Real Genius, "That was yesterday. What have you done for me today?"

    Fedor's last true and legitimately tough bout was against Mirko in '05. Martins was a tool/joke, Hunt (while I do like him) was not near Fedor's level at the time, Coleman was badly over the hill(), he outweighed Lindland by a laughable degree, and Choi barely needs to be mentioned.

    Fedor may have been the best at one time, and he still may be. The problem is that it's all theoretical without strong competition to back up the claim. No fighter, let alone a champion/former champion, 'earns' any easy walks in the world of mixed martial arts. As both a competitor and a long time fan I feel near-works such as those are a slap in the face of both the fighter and MMA itself.

    This beautiful sport is a mountain, not a pegboard. If you want to truly be at the top, simply enough you have to fight the best to be there. I have yet to see Fedor reach that level again in my eyes, and I'm not sure that he ever will.


    Stand or fall, but choose.

    True but you have to realize that fedor himself states that hes not #1. Hes still humble and classy.

    Bottom line, I hope to see some top tier fighters taking him on, because I enjoy watching him fight.

    I have never insinuated that Fedor has declared himself number one, but that hasn't stopped most MMA publications/rankings from doing so. His humility is hands down the thing that I admire about him the most and I will always enjoy watching Fedor compete.

    I too look forward to Fedor's manager delivering on the promise of M-1 being an open promotion, ergo netting him the opportunities he needs to face top-level competition. If the world wants to call him numero uno, he needs to be given opportunities to establish that as fact.

    Word is that Faber and Pulver will be locking up pronto for the WEC 145lb title. Dana... MAKE THIS HAPPEN

    I believe Tim would've had more trouble with Choi than Fedor did, and ironically it would come down to reach. Timmah wouldn't be able to work his eternal and never welcome jab, seeing as how Choi's arms have a lot of range on him. His ground defense basically consits of flailing his legs into attempted triangles, but seeing as how he depends on his opponent's smaller size to facilitate that it would also be out the window.

    Choi showed he has legitimate power in the way he battered and bruised Fedor's noggin with only a few strikes. Tim likes to maintain that he has the same, but his glass jaw and refusal to really engage negate any truth to that claim.

    In all honesty (*and of course, this is just my opinion*), Tim's best chance would be a snooze-fest decision a'la Vera or Arlovski....or Monson....or, you could basically take your pick. He depends too much on matching up against opponents smaller than him, so taking that out of the equation would leave Tim scratching his lumpy head in confusion.

    Yeah true, I just couldnt see Tim picking Choi off with a jab...as Choi has some expeiance in the K1 ring. He wouldn't take him down as Fedor also had trouble with the take down. I would back Choi via decision or KO.
    I would love to see Tim fight Semmy Shilt,Choi or Cheik Kongo.. then we would see how well rounded he is (or isn't)

    :crymeariver: Liddell beat Vanderlei, oh well back to Japan he must go.

    Quick question, if you were asked which fighter never lived up to the hype or his potential would Vitor Belfort come up on your radar or maybe Jeremy Horn?
