If Mark Hunt had a somewhat better ground game, he would've been well on his way to accomplishing this.

Kazuyuki Fujita and took place at PRIDE 26: Bad to the Bone

TBH he was really only stunned then there was a takedown shortly thereafter.

i dont recall him getting knocked down by that. i remember him taking a huge right hook, and then staggering.

although staggering is an understatement.

I think the closest was Fujita rocking him. Edit: Too late. But yeah, it didn't knock him down at all, but Fedor was on rubber legs for a few seconds.

He took a near flush head kick from cro cop and didn't even drop, although it did cut his baby soft skin.

My ninja edit was very late. I put the you tube link of the fight up.

But to be fair that punch from Fujita would of put some in a coma.

He was pretty silly for a minute there though, but his cardio was really good and he recovered well. He would not recover if one of Brock Lesnars ham-sized fists hit him though for example. That would be just too much energy.

Heath took a pretty savage punch from Brock that broke his orbital bone, and went the distance somehow.

That is a good point but the shot Fedor took was more similar to the one that Randy did from Lesnar than the one Heath got actually. Actually Herring bled a whole lot of the energy off that punch too. Sick iyam.

Yea, Heath really is a beast, its confusing really, he was dominated in that fight, but he never once got himself in a bad spot for more then like 10 seconds before wiggling into a less bad spot, but then you look at Mir, both times he was taken down he was put into spots where the fight was in danger of being over and he could do nothing about it. If Brock is to ever fight Fedor I think Fedor, like Heath, is to slick in position grappling wise to get in to to much trouble and would make the difference.

Don't forget how purposely tentative Brock was in the Heath fight though.

I remember him having "referee phobia" directly after his fight with Mir, and what Mazagati did to him.

In the Heath fight taking the ref's word VERY seriously, as in he'd like almost stop punching and only maintain top position when the ref would say watch the back of the head etc..

hahah he threw a ****ing flying knee right out of the bell get out of here with tentative.

Yeah, he's obviously not going to hit him in the back off the head with a flying knee..

He was extremely tentative on the ground when he had Heath in the same dominating positions he had Mir in. Instead of going all out to stop the fight, he chose to not risk another lame standup or penalty and grind out a decision by pacing himself while beating on Heath.

i love just pondering how much barnett cost himself.

the fight money+ the money that could be earned if he were somehow able to beat fedor...ufc would snatch barnett back in a SECOND and throw him to lesnar for a whipping to be able to dispel the fedor talk.


he could have just cost himself 3-5 freakin million, no joke.

An official announcement for who takes the fight is today right?
07-24-2009 , 10:21 AM
Riggs vs Diaz canceled too. FML...
07-24-2009 , 10:37 AM
best solution for everyone: cancel the card, ship fedor to the UFC and lets get some real matchups ASAP.

Sort of. Sherdog says that Belfort is walking around at ~200 right now so he needs to know whether to start cutting for 185 or bulking to 210ish. Hopefully we'll at least know if Belfort is in or out of the running today.
07-24-2009 , 11:45 AM
Sherdog had indicated that we should have heard something on Thurs. actually.

Meh' the more i read about the fedor/ufc thing the more i think he never sets foot inside an octagon. Theres some fishy stuff with Fedors managers and M1 global that even if Fedor wanted to go to the UFC i think his managers/M1 or whatever have the final word. Which is odd. I think all the "exclusivity and sambo" is a front.

Fedor seems to be an employee to his management instead of the other way around.

lol russianmobaments?
07-24-2009 , 12:19 PM
M-1 wants to set up their own organization.

They got Mousasi and Fedor in their roster so far.
07-24-2009 , 12:27 PM
Clearly Annie Duke, Andy Bloch, Howard Lederer, Jesus Fergeson, etc that sued the WPT for likeness rights etc also must have been influenced by the Russian Mob as well. Makes no sense.
