    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.

    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.

    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

    Nobody cares about your illegal link maratk.

  • jdnextchamp

    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.

  • Entity

    Keep an eye out for a runaway chicken with ink on his feet!

    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…
