Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

The UFC 100 Fedor Chant: CP Readers Launch a Viral Phenomenon! (Hopefully!)

(All hail the Emperor. Props: KingAtRock)

Sometimes the Power of the Potato Nation is just too strong to be ignored, brother. For those of you who don’t hang out in our forums section, you missed this recent brainstorm from "LargeMidget":

I was just thinking how cool it would be if the crowd chanted Fedor’s name after the upcoming heavyweight belt unification match. Dana would probably shit his pants, and then hopefully get out the checkbook.
The point is of course that this fight doesn’t truly determine the best heavyweight in the world because Fedor is still #1. Consider this the beginning of a virally coordinated effort to make this happen.

Despite some parade-raining by "My Fight Wiffa Cheeto," our friend "kadumel" took up the mantle and began promoting the idea on several MMA message boards. Though his thread on Sherdog was taken down for unknown reasons (maybe it was too awesome?), his thread on the UG is flourishing, with almost 100 responses, most of them positive — which inspired one supporter (or kadumel himself, it isn’t really clear) to launch an official homepage for the movement, All from one little post on one little message board.

Is chanting "Fedor!" at UFC 100 a mature, respectful thing to do? No, probably not. And most of us know that the UFC’s failure to sign Emelianenko has more to do with Sambo tournaments and Russian stadiums than a simple opening of the checkbook. But we’re not gonna lie — if this actually came together, it would make us pretty freakin’ proud. So if you know anybody going to #100, make sure to let them know about it, aight?

Now all we have to do is agree on the pronunciation: Is it "FAY-dor," "FEE-oh-dor," or "HYO-dor-ooh"?

FEDOR is #1 UFC needs him so lets hear it at every UFC!

Are you kidding me? Why is this guy not fighting Lesnar and Mir over the next 18 months for millionS of dollars? If he has a price, meet it for 5 years Dana.

Do the chant, obviously someone isn't getting the message.

I say all of us cagepotato heads pitch in some cash to FEDOR (you know, start a fund or something and "buy" Fedor into going to the event) and use/buy PERMA's tickets to assure he's got a seat. If we all pitch in we can raise some serious cash....Fedor can't resist the offer.

Wow, thanks for posting my Fedor HL vid CP! Out of nowhere!

HEY! Why no link to CP on the fedorchant page?? Just the UG and Sherdog. Oh and some unrelated site about a dude named Fredo.

If Lesnar wins and the FAAAAYDOOOR chant goes up, it will seem just like his WWF days. He can point Fedor out in the crowd and bellow at him. Fedor can charge the ring, grab the mike, spew some shit talk that his manager(wearing a feather boa and Macho Man sunglasses) can translate. When he turns to go out of the ring, Lesnar will clock him with a chair setting up a grudge match. See Dana, that is how you set up a match baby! FAAAAYDOOOR, FAAAAYDOOOR, FAAAADOOR!

why dont you put on your tapout gear and shut up?
Kirky- May 5, 2009 at 3:41 am
Great Idea kad and I hope it works, just afraid theres too many casual fans that'll ruin the whole idea buy overtaking the chant with a U.S.A U.S.A or something gay like that, also, I guess a 2 sylable chant is better than a 3, plus fedor is known around the USA as fedor rather than feyodor or w/e.

I think it is disrespectful. And fucking awesome.

If it happens, I expect the following to occur:
1 Joe Rogan condemning the fans for being disrespectful (and rightfully so) to a fighter trying to do the winning interview, even though he is a fan

2 Dana White saying fuck repeatedly, with other words scattered between

3 Fedor remaining outside the UFC

Haha, this is gonna be fucking classic. I really hope it pulls through.

my guns are huge. dick. umad.
Kadumels bleeding vage- May 4, 2009 at 11:05 pm
shut the fuck up you little white ass homo's, fucking fedor nut suckers, why dont you jump on over onto gsp nuts they are huge, hes a real man, you guys will look so cool chanting fedor, instead you should chant thank you dana for the great card he put on, yah instead of gsp vs latino kid, id rather see fat fedor vs chuby franky mir, or wwe champion brock lesnar, get real you bunch of ungrateful keyboard warriors, i think your mom's done washing your favorite tapout shirt so you can go to the gym and work "the guns"...

Guaranteed they would cut to some gay coomercial when it starts, it will have to be repeated over and over at different times. Obviously if it was during the fight they couldn't cut to commercial.

GSP has not even fought outside his weight class. How the hell can he be considered pound for pound the best? He is the best welterweight but I am going for the upset from Alves.
punkin- May 4, 2009 at 9:06 pm
@slothman - what is specious about being 9-0 vs former ufc heavyweight champs, eh?
breeze- May 4, 2009 at 8:41 pm
mad dumb idea
cp gets behind the lamest ideas
SCM- May 4, 2009 at 8:27 pm
haha i hate how Dana lets alot of those dudes get contracts Anonymous. Such BS.

And 8 fights minimum for pay per view, and no undercards filled w TUF fighters and just the winner goes to the UFC not the whole fucking cast chant
One Two- May 4, 2009 at 8:22 pm
how about a mousassi chant after silva n forest, and then a hellboy hansen chant after penn florian, man if fans could actually have some power itd be a great day for MMA also knees on the ground chant after every fight, and yellow card chant so we don't see gay fights like Silva leites.
Kimbo's Bread- May 4, 2009 at 8:21 pm
I really am Kimbo Slice and I support this.
Anonymess- May 4, 2009 at 7:25 pm
neither mir nor lesnar want anything to do with fedor. as that highlight reel attests the man is too strong, fast and skilled for ANY ufc heavy that ever fought.
SCM- May 4, 2009 at 6:42 pm
Guys, its not disrespectful if we just want a legendary fighter to come into the "Ultimate Proving Ground for Warriors" to test his true skills and own some people in the process. He would generate alot of hype. More than the UFC thinks. A chant would be epic.

Those who say it wont work are pessimistic, uneducated, incompetent morons. Give it a chance noobs.
