    Satoshi is no joke and may have short term success against Fedor like Arlovski and Rodgers but i think fedor is much more well rounded and durable... i think fedor will finish this fight.

    Come on....

    Ishii will suprise us!!! he went to a draw decision against a middle weight in Paulo Filho in his last fight.

    No fight for Fedor is legit now unless he fights UFC guys cause It will always be a lose-lose situation for Fedor.

    Man 4-1-1 Doesnt mean anything. Because every fighter trains hard between fights. The Ishii of today if probably not the same as the one who fought Paulo filho . Those guys are always evolving, learning news stuff ,making new kind of game plan. And Come on even if the guy isnt that experimented , he won a gold medal in Judo. He is a competitor with the heart of a champion and in a fight ,especially a HW fight , just a punch can change a fight. Satoshii Ishii knows he will fight a legend and probably has been preparing harder than ever. I still want Fedor to Win obviously . But you can never count out a guy before a fight

    I couldn't agree more. He needs to fight in the UFC if he wants to convince people that he's still the Fedor he used to be.

    The element of surprise is not enough to win the battle. If Ishii actually expects to win a striking match against fedor he is deceiving himself.

    If Fedor comes in like he did against Jeff he'll win. He was smart, and had a great game plan. But lately his recklessness has been catching up to him in the 3 losses. But i'd love to see the old fearless Fedor get back into the cage. Personally i don't care if he wins or loses but i just want him to be a savage. Remind me of the Pride days.

    FEDOR is a saint of orthodox Christianity...

    He is an angel of GOD.

    He needs nothing to prove by fighting in the ufc...
