I wish it was Fedor standing next to Randy…
Randy looks tiny next to Lesnar…damn Randy really has his hands full with this one….best of luck to him.
it should be fedor and randy, too bad we will probally never see that fight
I think Randy will win this one. You know I don't know who will win, but your right I would've liked to see Fedor, he's not little either.
this fight will be crazy but maybe not so good
The Fedor fight has to happen within the next 3 years otherwise Randy is over the hill and it probably wont unless Fedor comes to the UFC exclusivly for one fight which will not happen. I believe Lesnar will win this one Randy is a warrior but he is overmatched in areas he used to excel at and i just dont see this fight going his way as i do not believe he can control Lesnar like he has in the past with other big men he has beaten…Lesnar is something else and all i can say is i can not wait and that i hope i am still here in the country when this fight occurs i should find out withing the next 2 weeks for sure.
Owe and anyone who stands next to lesnar looks small…not maybe in height but overall size wise.
randy needs to fight fedor within the next year or he is done. how many fights did randy resign for? 3 or 4 i see him fighting those all within 2 yrs and retiring shit he is already 45 i can't see him fighting past 46 really and if he takes a beating in one of those fights it might even be shorter.
good point i said within 3 years and i dont think we will ever see this fight.
Yeah, unfortunately I agree. I also think Lesnar will win, but I am hoping that Randy surprises me. He has before, but then again, like you said Tim, Randy really hasn't faced anyone as strong or as good of a wrestler as Lesnar.
i need someone to help me with this please. If I am missing something please tell me. How can Lesner all the sudden have a title fight. He fought mir and lost. He fought the texas crazy horse and won. How does just a few fights entitle him to a title fight.
I personally think he needs more fights under his belt. What about the other guys in front of him. Maybe it is just me, it just doesnt seem right.
Nick, personally I think he got cheated out of the Mir fight – stood up for 1 strike to back of the head. He can't fight Nog either since he has to fight Mir at the end of the TUF season. Also if you look at Anderson Silva, he got a title fight after one fight (Leben). Just my 2 cents.
thanks for the other way of looking at it. I see what you are saying. I will say one thing about Lesner he will eventually be unstoppable. With his size and wrestling skill, once he gets really skilled in striking and BJJ he will be the man.
Unfortunately Nick in the UFC it is not just the record that counts it is also your drawing power and/or popularity. If you are a wild and exciting fighter you will always have a job in the UFC. If you can also manage to throw in a few extra hundred thousand pay per view buys than you have earned your title shot. Popularity + Excitement + Wins = title shots and huge financial bonuses.
I agree that he may become unstoppable. It's pretty unreal what he's been able to accomplish in such a short time.
I don't really see why his stint in the WWE is a question. If it were me, I wouldn't have left the WWE – probably making 4x as much $! But of course that's because I'm a broke a$$!
Jack I can definitely see that. I am curious how Dana White would treat Fedor in the UFC. I know Fedor isnt entertaining like Rampage Jackson in an interview, but in the ring Fedor is a machine.
If Dana landed Fedor he would promote him harder than anyone else has. He would be the leader of the fedor fan club because of his international appeal and the UFC plan to take over the world.
Yeah Dana would defintely bend over for Fedor. I don't think the UFC pays enough though. Fedor doesn't care about who he fights, why should he, he knows hid kick everyone's a$$! It's all about the Benjaminz, or Euro or whatever currency he uses.
I agree but we will never know what those guys really make. We only know of their base salary. they all get bonuses that are never released. Tito said that he made over 1.2 million while getting his ass beat by Chuck. I am sure that if they could get Fedor than they would treat him very well.
If Brock is not injured, he'll beat Randy no problem. But I hear that he is severely injured and the only reason he is not pulling out is because he knows that would get him on White's bad side. He doesn't want to pull a Ken on White now that they have dubbed this as the greatest fight of all time or something like that.
did anyone hear what type of injury it is?
That was all BS..from what i read someone called the Couture camp acting like Forenzo and said Brock got injured serverly and will not be able to fight…they actually believed it until they called Dana and he said WHAT…Hell no brock is perfectly healthy..FYI i read somewhere that a rumor was started that Randy injured his knee in a bathroom and slipped and fell…So trust me if the ywere injured at all the fight would not happen but these are just rumors.
This fight is all about money. Dana White has always been about the money and Randy is proving to be the same way. This is the second time he has tried to "retire" only to come back asking for more money while he was still under contract.
Dana saw this as an opportunity to make HUGE amounts of money , get the loyal Couture fans back in the UFC and keep Randy from signing with somebody else. If Randy wins , he'll be the greatest ever and the legend will continue all while under contract with the UFC. If he loses , then the media circus around Brock will be Dana's new cash cow. It's a win/win situation for Dana which is the only reason it happened.
Duh..All fights are about money otherwise 99% of the MMA fighters wouldnt fight. True Dana is very smart and is capitalizing on a major situation. This fight brings tons of talent, current mma lovers and wwe fans to watch MMA and that is Dana' goal to expand the UFC/MMA globally among everyone. This fight in general shouldnt be for a title fight but since Rnady is the champ there is no other choice as the reason Dana let Randy come back and fight was for 3 fights one being against Brock and since he technically is champ it has to be for a title fight. Brock will win and be champ and face Frank Mir and beat him in a rematch…wich is what Dana is hopeing for as that would bring great ratings in…Overall love him or hate him Dana is one smart man. Anaylysis on the fight..it should be great but in the end Brock will become to much for Randy to handle..isee it going either 2nd round TKO Brock or 5 round Decision.
i agree Brock is prolly too much but im getting that eerie feeling like we are building up alot of good Karma for Randy. Just sayin… Oh and I think that NOG will be the one Brock will face if and when he wins.
Have you seen the fighter payouts? Not very many are making huge amounts of money so to say that 99% of the MMA fighters wouldn't be fighting is a tiny exaggeration on your part. Maybe nowadays there are more that fight exclusively for the money but what about 5 years ago when there wasn't ANY huge paydays for anyone.
Fighter Payouts for rookies or low class may be low but keep in mind sponsorship deals and marketing promotions. example…a fighter makes 5K a fight plus a bonus if he wins, plus all his sponsorships pay him so he is making about average 20-50K a fight and this is just an example as iknow some make way less and i know its tough but my point is if there wasnt money involved these MMA fighters would not fight at all…they fight for the love but also a paycheck. I understand about the whole Karma thing but guess we are just going to have to wait and see what happens we all know the facts and the abilities of both fighters.
Although i have to say this there are some but few that fight although they dont need the money..Lesnar, Couture, Liddel them for sure are set for life with Money with Brock being the most finacially secure but you wouldnt know it as he is a very down to earth guy and doesnt boast his money.
BJ Penn as well does not need the money he comes from a very very wealthy family in hawaii. he inherited millions when he turned 18
FUCK LESNAR! RANDY IS THE MAN!
9 − eight =
