Fedor is proving himself to me. He is proving that some men still value some things over money. That ranks him pretty far up there in my book.

How exactly is he proving he values other things more than money? By insisting on M1 Global co-promotion he is trying to grow a company which he is a part of which in the long run would bring him much more money than any fight contract. He is just trying to use the UFC to make his own company successful

fedor is not P4P as long as he keeps fighting UFC has-beens, cans, or non-top 10 fighters. while he is fighting these guys once per year, there are people like GSP, anderson and penn fighting the top fighters in the world at their weight class continuously and 3 times a year. he has nothing to gain from this fight and everything to lose. if he loses this fight it will be the biggest upset in MMA history

Couldnt agree more

Thats because Anderson had cleaned house, Fedor Just refuses to join the house with any challanges in it

I'm sure the whole co-promoting with the UFC clause in his contract had nothing to do with money...

The best competition in MMA is in the UFC... what Fedor HAS proven is that fighting the best competition in the world isn't one of his priorities....

must be his part of being loyal to his beliefs I guess

I don't think Anyone rates Rogers above Carwin.


I think at this point GG is more dangerous then AA and being able to come back and knock a dude out while your rocked shows heart.

Rogers hasn't been fighting UFC quality oppenents.

Still its the coolest fight for Fedor ATM outside of the UFC.

In no way would that possibly be worse than GSP losing to Serra. At the very least, Rogers is knocking dudes out left and right and is undefeated. It'd be an upset, but nowhere near the magnitude of GSP losing to Serra.

Agreed..... but mostly because I don't think Fedor is at the same level everybody else does. He's overrated.

I think some people have forgotten how good Fedor's striking really is. He's deceptive about it. Anybody remember Daddy Goodridge? Anybody?
