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, fedorchant.com. 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?
