- SWEEPSTAKES OVER; FEDOR SIGNS WITH STRIKEFORCE - MMA WEEKLY - Mixed Martial Arts & UFC News, Photos, Rankings & more
This sucks. I've been a huge fan of Fedor since his early Pride days, and this is a huge blow to me. My first question is why? In my wildest imagination I cannot imagine how strikeforce would be a better option for Fedor over the UFC, unless of course it's the fear of competition. Who will he fight in strikeforce? Verdum? Overeem? Who cares about either of those? I want Fedor int he UFC, I want him to pummel Lesner or battle Cotoure...none of that can happen now. I lost a lot of respect for The Emperor due this move. I think we've just witnessed the end of the greatest fighter in MMA. Fedor's career has jumped the shark, well before it was due.
