Doubt it. He's quite happy to sit about ducking Bas rutten's challenges for the past decade and chat **** about how he could beat Fedor with ease.

Rickson is bad ass, but he really said he could beat Fedor!?

That is highly unlikely, even in his prime he could not beat him!

That would make Rickson a perfect candidate for Kimbo Slice then!

2 time brazillian free style wrestling champ, gold medal winner in sambo..uncountable jiu jitsu championships...i think he would have a decent chance at beating fedor.
u gotta b kidding me if u think that fedor would out do Rickson on the ground.
in his prime i'd give the edge 2 Rickson.

and palma don't throw kimbo's name anywhere near ricksons :lol1: at 50 he'd still kill kimbo.

i think he would probably have Fedor set up in some pretty tight submissions if it got to the ground but i really don't see any of them forcing him to tap. if it were BJJ only then maybe but an MMA match would be a ref stoppage due to strikes. no matter how technical Rickson is/was, Fedor's much more strong, harder hitting, has insane standup, and has taken some unreal punishment unscathed.

the vast majority of Rickson's opponents had a small fraction of BJJ experience as him.

I was referring to the fact that Kimbo only fights senior citzens. I know Ricksons would whoop Kimbo's ass.

UFC and WWE are overrated. 9/10 a well schooled boxer would KO them MMA bums!

you've said that in 3 other MMA threads and nobody gave a **** then. so if you're this starved for attention then just start a thread. i mean, you'll still look like an idiot but at least you'll get more people giving you attention.

Rickson Gracie is rumored to have never lost a fight. I read an interesting article on him in Fight! magazine. He is a bad mutha ****a!!!

That was just the tip of the iceberg, he also said that Nogueira has no guard and when Wanderlei Silva challenged him he said he would only do it if he got 5 million dollars, basically ducking him. Rickson was beating people before MMA became what it is now as far as the sport is concerned. The level of fighters today such as a Fedor or Anderson or Nog would destroy Rickson in his prime because they have far better range of skills.
