There two extremes.

Affliction is intollerable because whats worse then paying none of your fighters what they deserve?

Paying ONE fighter a lottery win, and the rest peanuts!!!

Thats far worse then the UFC, whose lower bands of pay are WAY too low...but atleast most people are payed on a scale and all you need to do is raise the scale across the board.

your right that fedor has been in trouble, but this win was a classic punchers chance victory. If AA had not got stupid, i think you would have been looking at the same story all the way, fedors looping punches not being fast enough with AA firing shots right down the middle.

we can speculate all year, bottom line AA got caught with a looping over hand and to sleep he went. still not convinced on fedors supremacy, but agree right now he is top hw. but he showed a big weakness. if i was training to fight fedor i would be looking at throwing down the middle hard and fast and make sure i could stol him from throwing me matt lindland style.

Fedor would kill Randy. That was a dumb idea from the start.

Randy is the MASTER at tactics.. Would Fedor beat Randy?? Probably.. Maybe... But Randy would make him work for it... work hard.

If all these Non-UFC Organizations close up shop.... Where will all these fighters end up? The UFC Roster seems sooooooooo full of people already that their lucky if they even get on 2 PPV's per year right now.

If the UFC ends up aquiring a ton more of these guys, what are they going to do to keep everybody active and fighting???

I just wish Fedor would finally fight in the UFC or that we could just have a united fighting organization.

Who is a worthy opponent now? lol

Some say barnett, I disagree. But ok, after the Barnett win.

Then what? People don't really think Mir or Brock stand a chance do they?
what ? GG? Kongo? Come on....

Fedor is the best HW in the world, and there is a big gap between first and second IMO
