We'll see how he does against Brock who barely allowed Mir to catch a breath on the ground...it could be a great upset. Brock and his unsurpassed wrestling career may nullify Fedor's ground game and there may be no chance at striking.
If Brock beat Fedor, what then?
The nuthuggers would demand a rematch and excuse Fedor's loss on whatev. They would hate on Brock and say he was greasing or something
We'll see...give him a title shot off the gate then, if the betters were wrong they will be eating crow...
