Default Carwin talks Fedor

Excerpt from an interview on FightLine.com:

Quote:
FightLine.com: You've caught some flack from the internet community for your comments directed to Fedor Emelianenko, saying that he has been fed opponents. Do you feel that's why he didn't sign with the UFC? What are your overall thoughts on Fedor?

Shane Carwin: I didn't say that Fedor was fed opponents. What I said was his handlers are putting him in risky situations. You would be hard pressed to find any MMA fighter that would not have Fedor as their number 1 or 2 best fighters EVER in MMA. When you put the best fighter in the world on shows that draw a lot less then the UFC, you risk the legacy that Fedor has built if and when he loses. We are all beatable and sometimes you can have clearly won and still lost on the judges scorecard. It's not too different then putting Hagler in with Sugar Ray, it wasn't like Sugar Ray could have finished Hagler and the risk was the guy with all the hype could dazzle the crowd and get the win. I am not disrespecting Fedor, I am just saying the elite heavyweights are in the UFC.

My comments were in response to Strikeforce's comments that the UFC does not have any good heavyweights. Guys like Brock, Nog, Couture, Mir, Dos Santos and Kongo says they are incorrect in those statements.

FL: While we're talking about Fedor, one fight that Dana White was trying to make was Fedor vs. Lesnar, before Fedor ended up signing with Strikeforce. How do you think a fight between the two would have went?

Carwin: I think that Fedor would beat Brock.

Sounds fair.

I don't think the UFC has no HW's,
but I also don't think they have more than 2 or 3 interesting fights for Fedor.
The same as Strikeforce has.

It is all a matter a matter of opinion.
But in mine....
Lesnar / Carwin / Mayyybe Dos Santos or Mir? I dunno...
(Not Nog, they've fought 3 times)

Strikeforce / Dream has....
Barnett (In Japan, its on) / Verdum / and... Rogers I guess...

I guess for me its a matter of not seeing anybody really pose a threat,
every time Fedor fights I just know he is going to win.
When I think of exiting fights I think of fights that I don't know who will win.

you must have made a fortune betting then if you know the outcomes of Fedor's fights.
