  1. Fedor definitely looked like he was head-hunting the whole time.

  2. Source of Fedor's Withdrawal


    Санитар поединка Емельяненко – Силва: «После второго раунда Федор сказал: «Я не могу продолжать бой» - Бокс/MMA - Sports.ru

    Here is the translation:

    Fedor Emelianenko, who because of the strong bruising to his right eye could not continue after the second round bout against Antonio Silva, was ready to stop fighting.

    The correspondent of newspaper "Sport Express" met after the battle at the hotel with the nurse, which helped Fyodor first aid.

    "The doctor asked the soldier:" Fyodor, you can go? "- He said. But Fyodor shook his head and replied: "No, I can not."


    However, it is unlikely the doctor would let Emelianenko in the third round, even if he was eager to go hard.

  4. It's going to be fun to see the overeem haters backpedal as fast as the fedor fanboys have

  5. and what are you, an overeem fanboy? Fedor is still the G.O.A.T even though his best years are definitely behind him.

    If believing he is the best HW in the world makes me one, then yes.

  7. I'm rooting for Overeem to win the Grand Prix and if he wins he probably would technically be ranked number one, but I think Cain would beat him if they fought.

    agreed. I think Cain is kryptonite for Reem. Good chin, great wrestling, andx a nonstop motor

    Really? Number one HW without ever beating a top-10 HW?

    Not a Cain fan, but anyone with a good chin, dynamic wrestling, and non-stop cardio will be hell for Overeem. I'd still like to see how he does past the first round with all that extra LBM.

  10. I think we will need to see how things play out, on both accounts. The problem, for me, is that nobody in the GP will present, nor have any of the Reem's erstwhile opponents presented, enough of a wrestling threat to accurately gauge his abilities in that area.

    All that said, I think Cain's defensive boxing is vastly overrated - in fact, I think Cain's striking has been similarly untested as the Reem's wrestling. So, for me, I will need to see how their next few fights play out before making that judgment.

    In fact, and this is simply conjecture, but I do think we will have the ability to see a potential fight between the Reem and the UFC's heavies in the next year, after his SF contract runs out (and particularly provided he wins the GP). I say this as the Reem has talked recently about his desire to increase stateside exposure.

  11. Did anybody pay attention to the fans' poll about who they thought would win it all?

    It was a little ridiculous, IMO. AA got 11% of the vote while Barnett, Silva, Werdum, and Kharitonov all combined for only 13% of the vote. Come on!

    I guess Joe Shmoe MMA Fan probably isn't familiar with half of the guys in this HW Grand Prix. That's the only thing I can think of
