Here's What Happens When Strangers Draw Your Selfies

If It’s Going to Be Vitor Belfort vs. Fedor Emelianenko, We Might As Well Get Hyped



We’ll level with you, Potato Nation.  We’re a little bummed about this Vitor Belfort vs. Fedor Emelianenko business.  Not that it’s a bad fight.  But it’s also not Fedor vs. Josh Barnett, which was Affliction: Trilogy’s main selling point and which we were genuinely pumped up about.  Now instead we get Fedor taking on a middleweight, and at the same time we get robbed of Belfort vs. Jorge Santiago.  It’s like Oscar Wilde said, “You can take lemons and make lemonade, but unless you throw some vodka in that bitch it ain’t gonna be no party, dog.”

But we digress.  If Belfort-Fedor is the fight we’re getting, then we’ll just have to come to terms with it the only way we know how: by watching a bunch of videos of Belfort kicking ass.  Won’t you join us after the jump?

It's a win win for him anyway. He gets his name back in people's minds. He loses... goes to the UFC and competes as a MW. If, by some chance, he wins against FEDOR... he's the best in the worldddd."


>>> If he beats Fedor, then all the Fedor fan-boys will be crying in their beer. And Me, Brock Lesnar, and Dana White will all be laughing our asses off at those people.


In the words Mickey(Rocky's manager in Rocky I) : Vitor, "KNOCK HIS BLOCK OFF!!"

I'm getting this PPV 'cause I love seeing Underdogs(the ol' David and Goliath situation). It would be EPIC for Vitor if he somehow pulls out a win...

Somebody needs to find an abandoned parking garage so Barnett and Fedor can still fight each other.

We can make a ring with our cars and use the headlights for lighting...

(What, don't tell me you didn't like Lionheart when it came out)

"But anyone can get caught, right?"

Chuck...is that you?!?

I'd lie if I said I wasnt atleast a bit interested in this matchup. Seeing two explosive guys go at it. I think this was the best Affliction could make of it since they're running out of big guys to put against Fedor, whom had a chance in hell to atleast nudge him.
Biv37- July 23, 2009 at 3:07 am
I don't think a good MW vs (arguably) the best HW on short notice makes a good fight either. But didn't we all say the same thing about Kimbo vs. Petruzzelli? Is anyone else getting de ja vous? It's not like Vitor has the advantage. But anyone can get caught, right?
Dakyn- July 23, 2009 at 2:28 am
Can't help but think that if Roger's didn't get greedy he could have thought Fedor. Sure he probably would have lost but at least then they'd be the same weight :/

@KarmaAteMyCat

Seeing as that Belfort was supposed to be fighting in an entirely different weight class, and Fedor straight dominates, you're a fucking moron for thinking Vitor has a chance at all.

We're not nut-hugging, we're just logical. Something you evidently lack, judging from your last post.
kempo666- July 23, 2009 at 1:08 am
Oh yeah,
Nice knowing you Affliction.
At least we can watch Fedor vs Couture on the new EA MMA game.

kempo666- July 23, 2009 at 1:05 am
Vitor Belfort? Really? Was Tank Abbott busy that week?
Why not give Kimo a chance to recoup some money to pay off some of his lawyer bills?
Fedor will yawn his way through yet another mismatch.

Shut the fuck up.
KarmaAteMyCat- July 22, 2009 at 11:17 pm
You all should really get your Vaginas check I think you may have caught something from hugging fedors Nutts to much.. Maybe Hep runs in the family :D LOL
lilpo0ts- July 22, 2009 at 10:40 pm
atleast he has a punchers chance to beat fedor...but i couldnt see him not knocking fedor out in the first and actually hanging in there. belfort has a lack of heart unless he is dominating. either way its gonna be ko 1st round by belfort, or sub from then on by fedor
Ryan Meleedy- July 22, 2009 at 10:23 pm
i cant believe they are allowing belfort to fight fedor?!?!?!?! i mean i get it. he walks around at 205, and can prolly gain 5-15lbs. by fight night. but he is a natural MW. just like matt linland was. granted lindland put up more of a fight than arlovski and sylvia did combined, i just dont like the idea of the best HW in the world fighting (arguably) one of the best MW in the world. belfort should fight santiago. if he fought him and won, the sky is the limit for him at MW. and to those who think if he loses to fedor at HW it wont effect him as a MW. unfortuantly for you, you are mistaken. any loss effects you. just like if hendo loses at 205 to franklin, (which he will) it will effect his marketability at 185. meaning he wont get an immediate title shot at 185. bottem line is this, he had a straight line to the UFC middleweight division should he have beaten santiago. if he loses to fedor, (lets face it, its gonna happen) then im not so sure the UFC will be as excited to sign him. and again, i know you guys are gonna say" but it was at HW, it doesnt effect his MW status." but i say again, losses stick in peoples minds. they just do. no matter the weight class, no matter the organization, and no matter the opponent. if belfort were to beat him, then disregard everything i just said, but since thats very unlikely, i think this is a bad move for the "pheanom". i love the dude, and want to see him in the UFC, and god damnit, this is not the way to go about getting there!!!
dude- July 22, 2009 at 9:44 pm
I'm shocked about this fight happening. But heck, I'm still gonna watch it. He's fought HW's before so it's nothing new for him. Vitor probably walks around close to 200 lbs. anyway. But if Vitor wins (that's if) what's this going to do to the MMA world??? Is he fighting as a HW?
831 Son- July 22, 2009 at 9:25 pm
There is no point in betting against Fedor until he loses.
kupo- July 22, 2009 at 8:47 pm
I can't fucking believe Fedors camp is A-OK with this. It's ridiculously lose-lose for Fedor. If he gets knocked out he's going to be a laughing stock and if he wins no one is going to give him credit for beating a middleweight. I honest to god can't believe they are going to go through with this fight but then again they did let him fight Lindland and all that did was invite the rope-grabbing controversy. Dip-shits!
KarmaAteMyCat- July 22, 2009 at 8:31 pm
I really Enjoy the right under hook on Terry Martin. I sure hope he does a something intense like a Knee or a super man punch in Fedors nuts so all you huggers fall off :D
PurplePickle- July 22, 2009 at 8:18 pm
I just slapped myself. Bigger dudes; Fujita, Zulu, Goodrich, Hunt? I think a quicker fighter who hits like a HW is something Fedor should be concerned with. I still think Fedor wins, but I will not rule out (and kinda hope for) an upset.

Vitor throws bricks, and he throws them fast, and accurately. Fedor will not be the quickest in the ring August 1st. The potential outcome of this matchup is what has me stoked. It is the 'what if' that makes me excited. Win/win for me.
GetUpAndKill- July 22, 2009 at 8:07 pm
I would likely take roids if I was fighting Fedor...realsitically stopping Fedor (like Arlovski almost did) in a way (unlike Petrizulli beat Kimbo)...would propel you into legendary status. BUT...the dumb fuck didn't cycle out soon enough. Now Barnett's left with no status and bitch tits.

When Vitor wins it's gonna be a weird scene because Fedor didn't train for Vitor...therefore; Fedor will retain credibility. Fedor has until August 1st to say no. In a way this is a perfect storm (a shit storm mind you) for Affliction to fight back...fans will tune into Affliction if only to see who stopped Fedor. Behind every scandalous headline you will still hear the Affliction tagline. All press, negative or otherwise is still good press.

Vitor is gonna make Fedor sweat out all that vodka
SIR HAL- July 22, 2009 at 8:02 pm
VITOR DID DEMOLISH TANK IN TANKS PRIME, SCOTT FEROZZO IN HIS PRIME, AND MANY OTHERS THAT ARE BIGGER THEN HIM AS WELL. YA NEVER KNOW MY MAN IT COULD VERY WELL HAPPEN. YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO THAT ANYONE CAN BE BEAT. HOW MANY UPSETS HAVE THERE BEEN IN THIS SPORT THAT WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. JUST ALITTLE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT. WE ALL HAVE OUR HOPES ON THESE FIGHTS BUT THEY DON'T ALWAYS TURN OUT THE WAY ALOT OF US THINK THEY WILL. I DO THINK ITS GOING TO BE A VERY FAST PACED FIGHT NO MATTER WHAT. RATHER IT LASTS FOR 30 SECONDS OR IT GOES THE DISTANCE, I THINK IT'LL BE AWESOME. I GOTTA GO WITH THE LITTLE UNDERDOG ON THIS ONE THOUGH.
831 Son- July 22, 2009 at 7:57 pm
Morons who think Vitor stands a chance need to slap themselves. Fedor fights way bigger dudes his whole career and is guaranteed to get himself another highlight reel finish. And Josh Barnett is a fucking dumb loser if he took roids.
SIR HAL- July 22, 2009 at 7:41 pm
Vitor by Doctor stoppage do to Fedor going into convulsions after getting pummeled like 20 times in 10 seconds. YES YES YES...........THIS IS GOING TO BE NOTHING BUT SPECTACULAR. HEY SPELLCHECKER, DID I SPELL SPECTACULAR RIGHT?
Poopchute Boxing- July 22, 2009 at 7:39 pm
Vitor by Doctor stoppage do to Fedor going into convulsions after getting pummeled like 20 times in 10 seconds. If anyone cares to remember Arlovski was kicking his ass until he went for the flying knee/most retardedly timed move ever.
SIR HAL- July 22, 2009 at 7:34 pm
WELL THEN WHATCHA GONNA DOOOOOOOO WHEN SIR HAL PUNCHES YOU RIGHT BACK IN YOUR COCK SUCKER.
