    I was so confused by the Fedor/Ishi fight. Just freaking confusing. I mean this is DREAM. The biggest show on the planet. The biggest fights ever! An eight hour card with this as the main event?

    Ishi? Could they not find a comedian for Fedor to fight?

    Agreed. Ishi has 6 fights…. Fedor has 30+ more. What a joke. Fedor looked scared early but easy win for him. I dont see him fighting anyone in the top 20 ever again.

    Fedor is living proof that you need to evolve with the sport or it will pass you bye…

    Although I am still a fedor fan , in my opinion his best days are behind him ,however least we forget the man ruled for ten years…

    just my 2 cents…but am I the only one that thinks the heavy weight standard should be changed,ie over 250 super heavyweight ????

    Former UFC Heavyweight Tim Hague Comments On Training With Brock Lesnar & Cole Konrad

    Here’s what he had to say about the whole experience.

    “Was pretty surreal. Best training, and best group of guys I’ve ever trained with. Merry Christmas UG. WAR LESNAR. Because I need to get better at everything, and being able to work with Pat Barry and Cole Conrad 1 on 1 was unreal. Working MMA with Brock and 5 other legit UFC level HW’s every day is something I don’t get up in Edmonton. I’m not gonna give away any of his strategy, but he is scary strong, and scary conditioned, and if he gets the jump on a takedown, you’re going down, or you’re blowing out a knee or something haha. I got invited back for a full camp, and i’m chomping at the bit to make that happen. I just went there for a week to be a hw dummy for Brock and the guys, I was slightly outta shape, but know what i have to do to be better next time. I wasn’t paid or nothing, didn’t ask to be and felt like I should have paid them to be there. I don’t know who’s better, they both made me their bitch on the mats, and Cole’s boxing is great as well. Don’t wanna say who’s all there training. Brock hits hard, and i think he was taking it easy on me cause it was the end of the workout and i was gassed. He got mount on me and fed me some shots that were nasty. I’m sure he was going easy. I know i can only get better training there and I’m on top of the world that I got invited back for a full camp. I cant say much about his game, or his strengths/weaknesses. Had to sign a non disclosure clause. But I will say he was champ for a reason, and I found out.”


    Ummmm is tim serious, i think that he better run as quickly as he can, and call greg jackson, and see if he can train with his gym, and actually become a more well rounded fighter, improve his cardio, and improve his skilset all the way around, or he’ll always be an inconsistent HW.

    Bragging that you’re putting in work with Brock Lesnar, ( who can’t take a punch, and had his face opened up, that resembled an earth quake fault line in california, or a female bodypart, and Cole Konrad, who also is a very bottom end level A fighter is nothing to be proud of )

    You need to train with guys lke Frank Mir consistently for a solid year, then ask for a call up to the UFC.

    Add some BJJ and some wrestling to the mix tim

    @Jerobe Tim would have alot more success fighting the late, great Bubba Smith, hell, he wouldn’t even have to worry about getting his cardio on point.
