How to beat Anderson Silva…

I was just playing the new Mortal Kombat at my buddies place and Scorpion has a bad ass flying scissor.  I didn’t realize til a few minutes ago its the same move Anderson Silva lost to Chonan by paired with a bad ass heel hook.  If this is what it takes to beat the guy, I don’t think anyone is going to do it anytime soon. Kind of reminds me of Oleg Taktarov’s Rolling Knee Bar, my favorite old school UFC move besides the “Tank Abbott Turtle”.  I wonder if Chonan learned that move from Steven Segal? heh

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Dan Henderson…

Fedor Emelianenko

Fedor Emelianenko

Currently this fight is having its contract worked out by Strikeforce and M1 to take place in July at an unconfirmed weight class.  As a Pride fan, I love this matchup.  Both fighters throw haymakers that could kill a man and both are equipped for a ground battle should it come down to it.  No BJJ in this match, should be pure standup. 

That being said, there’s a lot of talk about Fedor retiring after his last two fights which he lost by a Triangle to Verdum and a TKO by Antonio Silva.  Lately I’ve been trolling some threads where basically everyone has been discrediting Fedor and dismissing him as washed up and over rated.  I’m not sure where these people get off calling the greatest heavyweight in MMA history “over rated” but its kind of a knock on ignorant American fans that probably didn’t even follow Pride at any point or see any of his fights.  Its easy to erroneously state he fought no name guys in Pride, but statistically, a lot of these kids running their mouths didn’t even watch Pride back then as they were still being weened off WWF and suckling the teet of TUF and UFC by Chuck Liddell and Ortiz vs Shamrock rematches.

A lot of arguments I read present valid points on both sides, but the Fedor haters are forgetting one thing: Read the rest of this entry »

Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia…

Word from various MMA sites including Sherdo, MMAjunkie, and Yahoo! Sports is that former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia and former PRIDE heavyweight champ have agreed to fight in July. It has been reported that the event will probably be promoted by Affliction in partnership with HDNet Fights. We’ll finally get a chance to see Fedor in the limelight once again. I personally see Fedor pulling an early sub, although it wouldn’t be a stretch of mind to predict a Tim Sylvia decision if his takedown defense is top notch and the 3-round fight plays out like a boring boxing match (see Sylvia vs. Arlovski III). Don’t put your money on it though. Check back for updates.
