@ joshuan29

Right on the money, bingo!

And like Cheeseburger Eddie, I'd like to see a draw at the end of the last round. Neither needs a loss before having to re-sign contracts with Dwight, Fajita Bros, or some Arab and with 10% Fluffa holdings.

Dana White, dude. He doesn't like either of those guys.

I don't think there is a single MMA fan that doesn't notice Fedor's pudginess.

Wouldn't legally being able to take roids be a plus-one for Hendo on paper?
joshuan29- July 21, 2011 at 2:23 pm
not even gonna bring up that nog was considered the best heavy in the world the first time fedor fought him. that arlovski and sylvia were both top five ranked when he fought them. the cro cop fight in 05. yeah hes fought noone. another dana brainwashee. pretty soon guys like lesnar and carwin will be considered “cans” ala arlovski sylvia cro cop and nog because alot of fanboys are fickle and have short memorys. sad but true.

Hendo is going to grab Mother russia by the love handles and throw him back to the Ukraine.
