 Good post FF. Monson is a very dangerous grappler but he is not elite in MMA right now. However, considering Fedors recent demise, he's not a bad opponent. Fedor needs to get a 1 in the win column. Simple as. He's not fighting to be a top 10 guy or any such thing. He's fighting to stay in the game.

Well by your own dumb logic was Anderson on a 3 fight losing streak at the time? Was Cote any more of a threat to Anderson at that time than Monson is at this time? Stop being a whiny bitch and just enjoy the fights.

 At top 20? he was ranked #25 at april and lost since, and he should have jumped 16 places up by losing? You Fedor fans are amazing. If Fedor fans would be Silva fans or BJ Penn fans or GSP fans, how big this sport could be, when people so delusional would be hyping the real fighters up...?

you made a very solid post till the end. beating monson does not help Fedor claim his position back. beating monson is just a confidence builder and gets him back in the game. If Fedor wins he should just kiss some major UFC ass and hope to god to get a contract. Unless Dream throws him a bone his career is about to stall out/end. There are no fights for him outside of strikeforce/ufc and M-1 cant pay him shit. he is probable fighting for peanuts for M-1 and being told he is building their brand, which is pretty non existent.

Should be a pretty competitive fight. They are truly on the same level. Fedor has proven that he can't hang with top competition. Even match, imo. Everyone can forget about Fedor coming to UFC and dominating, thereby silencing all the critics. Not happening. He will always be know as the greatest heavyweight/overall fighter of his era, which is OVER!

You people don't know what you guys are talking about. Jeff Monson is a one of a kind grappler. He has won in ADCC, getting recently a bronze medal there, and also fought for the HW title in the UFC not too long ago against a prime Sylvia, who was scary good, in what was a very close fight. He also weilds a victory over a top tier and then ranked Kharitonov in less than 2 minutes, by submission. The same Kharitonov that wrecked Arvloski, Overeem, Schilt, Ninja, Werdum, and others. Monson is strong, crafty, and very smart.He is no different than Anderson fighting someone like Maia, or Pierre fighting Shields. Sure his striking is bad, and his takedowns are so-so, but his submission abilities are top 2-3 in the division, bested only by Werdum and MAYBE Gonzaga. Monson also just very recently beat Roy Nelson in one of the best fights of recent times. He is definately ranked, and any non-Zuffa zombie should have him at #9-12 in the top 20 at the moment. A win over Fedor would be huge, but if Fedor can beat Monson that will surely be a sign that he is back in top form, and back to claim his rightful position as the best HW in the world.

I love Fedor. He is my favorite MMA Fighter BUT he is done. He will loose again. It´s not about building things up again. He is not into it any more and we will never see the old Fedor again it doesn´t matter who he will fight in the future....
