Big Fedor fan, but for some reason I am a bit nervous about this fight? I'm not sure he's truly been tested in the fights since Pride, and Werdum is decent, but I will still take Fedor by KO (punch).

Interested to see the female fight, haven't seen a female MMA bout before.

I can't believe you're picking Werdum. You're quite the contrarian. He's got to get Fedor down to submit him and Fedor has heavy hands.

I hope Fedor doesn't lose. It will be sad to see the end of the era of Fedor. Plus, I really would like to see Fedor v. Overeem.

Fedor by first round K.O OR a sub.

:yikes: :D it's funny, i don't mean to be that way, is just that fighting is just that, a fight, and with each fight anything can happen. In MMA you often hear that, and that styles make fights, and it's true. It's the very essence of the sport and upsets are bound to happen. You gotta go with each fight, and not get hang up on any fighter.

I can hardly believe I am picking against Fedor too, but right now you gotta give Werdum the momentum. Werdum is ready and is Fedor's biggest threat in a loooonnnnnng time. Werdum is being underestimated in the same way that Shields was going against Henderson, granted Werdum's challenge is MUCH bigger (Hendo is overrated).

Werdum is a world-class fearless & fierce warrior, and it's unbelieavable how people are simply writing him off. It goes to show how people put way too much stock in one fighter and don't give all fighters their due credit.

Fedor by T.K.O. in the first round.

I feel bad for Jan Finny playing punching bag for Cyborg, especially for the shoddy refree work...that fight should've been stopped in the first round.

Props to her for keeping on fighting.

Well, there ya go.... O_O

Fedor loses. Pretty disappointed with how that turned out.... I think maybe he was over confident against sub attempts since he's had some bouts with good subbers like Nogueira where he just jumped into their guard and dominated anyway. Who knows. Maybe he will retire after this.

Le's kicks were amazing as well.

It's a sad day. Everybody loses sooner or later but it was fun keeping the legend alive. Now it's over.

great card!

Re: Fedor vs Werdum
 
Shocked to see the fight, after the first sub attempt I didn't think Fedor would walk right into another one, thought he should've backed up and had him stood up, but I guess he thought he was hurt. Good respectful comments from bother fighters after, hopefully it lights a fire under Fedor's *** and we see improvement going forward.

Cung Le looked awesome, those kicks were great. Did not enjoy the Cyborg/Finney fight at all, maybe I just don't like women's MMA, but it was very one sided and Finney looked destroyed. Yeah she was defending herself, but I think 4 knock downs in a round means you are done and fight should be stopped. I hate that female ref as well ("do you want her up" after 2 seconds).

It was the first woman's mma fight that I've watched and I was actually enjoying the fight until the point when the ref should have stopped the fight which is about the time Finney was hugging Cyborg's ankle.

Finney gave a hell of an effort but she had no business fighting Cyborg.

Yeah, the no hitting the back of the head is legit since you don't want to damage the occipital lobe and cerebellum.....

But if a fighter is doing that and exposing the back of their head just so they won't get hit on the front then it's probably time to stop the fight. Especially when they're clinging onto the other fighters leg.

I get what you're saying, but really is it such a big deal? Fedor is no better or worse today than he was the morning of June 26th. It's not like he lost because age or injury has made him a worse fighter. He made a bad mistake and he was beaten as a result. But any anticipation you may have had for Fedor vs. whoever in the future shouldn't be quashed by Fedor's defeat. For example, I would be no less excited to see Fedor vs. Overeem today than I would have been on June 25th.
