    Fedor fighting on NYE! (source: mmafighting.com)


    I'm pumped. Hopefully he'll get a decent opponent, probably Monson, Rizzo, or Barnett. I really hope it's Barnett, but I doubt we'll get that lucky. The event will be held at the Saitama Super Arena, can't wait.

    Maybe it'll be Arona, or even Sergei?

    I read somewhere that an M-1 rep denied these claims.

    M-1 fighting Global has come out and denied that there will be an event on New Years eve in Japan, saying there was inadequet time to prepare.

    Despite this, it may still happen.

    Expect a rumor to start floating about Fedor fighting Choi at it. Take it for what it's worth.

    Choi Mu Bae or Hong Man Choi? I would be satisfied with Barnett/Monson/Arona, but one of the Choi's, what a joke.

    Arona would be a interesting re-match. Hell, even a re-match with Babalu would intrigue me.

    Monte Cox and Sam Caplan have both confirmed that Fedor will be fighting on NYE against Hong Man Choi.

    this is what I hear will happen, boy Fedor in about 1 minute.

    I hate to say this as he is the best in the world, but he really needs to fight someone eventually

    The best in the world does not fight people like Hong Man Choi. If Fedor takes this fight he should be out of the top 10 immediately for being a waste of talent.

    Fedorina needs to retire if he cant fight real fighters.

    that is a bit harsh for me, but I understand your rationale. He needs to fight a barnett or someone of that ilk who is a free agent

    Fedor is definitely tarnishing his legacy with all these crap fights. Since the Mirko fight, he has only gone against Zulu, Coleman, Hunt and Lindland. That is sad. Can we really keep him at #1 if he hasn't fought any one arguably top 10 guy in the last 2+ years.

    What event is this? I see the MMA site says M-1 is lending him to another organization. So....is it a pay-per-view?

    EDIT: The K-1 dynamite event?

    Of course, he's #1 just like Frank Shamrock is still #1 at MW

    I really think that he'll be in some trouble against a top 5 HW who's active. MMA is growing by leaps and bounds with great fighters coming out of the woodwork.

    I think you misordered the words in your sig. Shouldn't it be "Fedor beats nobodies"?

    Hong Man Choi is not the most mobile of fighters at his freshest, and if he fights on 12/31, it will be after the K-1 World Grand Prix on 12/8.

    He's slotted to fight Le Banner first, if he wins, then the winner of Schilt_Feitosa, and if he further advances, the winner of the other bracket, mostly likely Bonjasky.

    Choi's height makes him very hard to punch, anyone who fights him that night will chop at his legs, he'll probably be at least still slightly hobbled and less able than usual to elude Fedor's shoot.

    Unless Fedorina Alexsackovich Emelianenko has lost it, who knows in this upset filled time, he'll throw Choi down and pound him out fast, maybe brutally like Kharitinov did to Semmy Schilt, that was extra harsh and messy.

    Fedor should fight a real MMA Superheavyweight to reclaim his cult emperor status - Antonio "Junior" Silva, that's a fight I would like to see.

    Now that would be worth seeing.

    Wow, some smack vs. Fedor is definitely emerging. I think if he cares about his legacy, refusing the UFC deal was catastrophic.

    I don't really have a huge problem with Fedor rejecting the UFC deal because I think Dana's terms and conditions are BS, but I'd like to see M-1 giving him exciting or at least challenging matches. I think Arona would be a decent first match (Emo I haven't seen anything but unsubstantiated rumors of a fight with arona). Then I'd like to see Barnett or Junior and ideally Couture after his contract expires.

    I hear you about UFC contract BS, I simply mean that people may look back to that rejection as the end of Fedor's reign as #1. He'd be better respected 20 years from now if he had accepted it.

    Is this actually confirmed? All I've seen is a bunch of people specualting that he was fighting Arona because Choi's name wasn't on the list of competetors.

    According to graciemag.com it is likely that Fedor will face Yoshida on NYE.

    What was his last fight, Thompson? He took a brutal beating in that one. Bad style matchup for him, he did surprisingly good against Wand. Styles make fights. I wonder if Fedor will sub Yoshida, like he did Ogawa. I don't think he likes to use his hammers unless necessary.

    I think he wanted to show Ogawa a lesson for not touching gloves, so he beat him at his own game. Fedor has a good reason for not wanting to throw his sledges around: how many times has he broken his hand now?

    Exactly. Not sure on the count, but definitely enough to play it smart. A month or so from now is gonna be great. Can't wait to see Wand back, +GSP/Hughes, Sok/Machida, Fedor, the Pride LW's that we haven't seen for a while, can't wait.

    I still want Fedor in the UFC of course. He didn't want to sign with the UFC so he could join the Russian Sambo tournaments. He won the last tournament without really even fighting b/c everyone he was supposed to face disqualified themselves before the fight so they didn't have to fight him. There was no gold medal match b/c the 2nd place guy was happy enough to get silver and forfeited.

    He also didn't sign because Dana White was talking trash about Fedor's management.
