Top ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko last week said he wasn't a fan of the UFC. On Tuesday, UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar proclaimed that he's no fan of Fedor either.

The reigning UFC heavyweight champ was asked during a media conference call if he planned on watching the upcoming Fedor fight this weekend as he takes on Fabricio Werdum. Lesnar appeared surprised at the question.

"I didn't even know he was fighting," he said.

Joking or not, Lesnar pulled no punches when talking about Fedor's proclamation that he was thinking about retirement from the sport, and walking away as the greatest heavyweight to ever put on the gloves.

"Good for Fedor, I hope he does retire." Lesnar commented. "He's the greatest champion of all time. He's the greatest champion ever, of all time, in his own little world. Good for him."

For a fight that MMA fans may never get to see, Lesnar had no problem stating that he'd have no issues facing Emelianenko, or defeating him if they ever did meet in the cage.

"Absolutely," Lesnar answered when asked if he could beat Fedor. "I can beat anybody."

Lesnar's UFC 116 opponent, current UFC interim heavyweight champion Shane Carwin, was a little more diplomatic with his approach to the Fedor situation, but did say that he was disappointed the Russian has thus far refused to step foot in the Octagon.

"I think it's unfortunate he didn't join the UFC," said Carwin about Fedor. "I'm not concerned with anything Fedor's doing right now. I got Brock ahead of me, and that's all I'm focused on. The UFC is the NFL of mixed martial arts, and the best of the best."

UFC president Dana White has stated on several occasions his desire to land Emelianenko, but negotiations with his management company, M-1 Global, have always fizzled out. As Fedor draws to the close of his current deal with Strikeforce, free agency rumors and a move to the UFC will likely heat up again later this year, but for now it doesn't look like the top dogs in the UFC's heavyweight division are worried about Fedor.

Everyone thought Brock was a joke before the Couture fight

I'm not sure why fedor continues to duck the best.I always thought fedor was supposed to be this great,humble champion that ducked nobody.but now he's facing a guy that got clocked by a green Junior Dos Santos and now he's proclaiming himself to be the greatest of all time?


I'm sorry,but this is not a man of class.

Your ignorance speaks for yourself. It really warrants no response. One question though, how exactly does the first Mir fight help to support you "point?"

Name one fighter Fedor has ducked. One.

And ducked means deliberately avoiding to fight a specific opponent. It doesn't mean not fighting a person as a result of fight politics.

Fedor is #1 HW no doubt.

Doesn't mean Lesnar wouldn't beat him.


As of right now, Fedor isn't trying to fight the best. He is just going with the flow like he always has. That may have worked while in Pride but now, it doesn't work at all, when the best competition for HWs is in the UFC and Fedor isn't there.

Overeem. Well until recently.

Anyway. Brock has no room to talk. Dude has 5 pro fights and has only beat 1 legit guy.

Fedor's never ducked Overeem. The fight has been planned for a long time, and it is actually Strikeforce which has held it up. Coker has stated that their strategy was to build a name for Overeem in the US. Fedor has never shown a reluctance to get in the ring and fight any man. I guess a lot of people just don't understand the business side of things.

Brock = 1 top ten fight in his last 5 fights
Fedor = 3 top ten fights in his last 5 fights (supposed to be 4).

He ducked an entire company.These "fight politics" that you speak of are the result of fedor turning down a very lucrative contract and an opportunity to showcase his skills to a larger audience than he's ever fought in front of in his life.




Ignore prinzpoppa he is a troll he thinks mma is gay yet he follows it and know a whole lot about it so he's a ****** .



I've no idea what you're talking about.What are you talking about?

Are these "true MMA fans" the same fans who still insist on claiming that he's undefeated despite actually having one official loss on his record?

i know plenty, who has fedor fought recently with credentials? he hasnt fought competition since pride which was 2006. 4 years ago.

last fights were brett rogers who only has a decent win over arlovski.

tim sylvia who is a bum in my opinion and is on the level of fighting ray mercers and pudzianowski's

arlovski who lost twice to this bum^

really the last real threat fedor had was crocop in 05, when cro cop is on his game. frank mir is better than the 3 above mentioned opponents of fedor and brock mauled him. and randy couture, randy may be old but it is a good win for brock being he had so little experience compared to randy's. im not saying fedor couldn't beat brock but i say his size, strength, and athletic ability are an advantage enough to make up for the difference in experience. im surprised that fedor gets so much recognition for beating these guys. he's a top 10 fighter but he's not number 1. he doesnt deserve it

It is,but world class boxers are not clueless meatheads like MMGAY fighters.The fact that this is used as an effective weapon in MMGAY just goes to show the level of mediocrity in this so called sport.


Exposed!

You leave now. kthnxbai. :nono:

Now,now,there's no need to get all touchy over the subject,is there?


Any posts outside of this thread are irrelevant.They have nothing to do with this thread and the qoutes that you produced have nothing to do with this thread.


They do nothing to further this topic,so why bother posting them?



Your post did nothing to expose me,either.
