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.
