If Fedor managed to cut to 205, Randy Couture would own & finish him in the octagon, & win a one sided dec in the Pride ring.

That is a fact.

Fedro would be a beast and he would be the person to beat Randy if they were both the same weight.

Good matchup. Randy's control and skill vs. fedor's crazy power and subs.

Fedor would slaughter Randy in the first round. Randleman took Randy down and kept him there the entire first round. Fedor reversed Randleman instantly after being dropped on his head by him. Coleman took awhile to get Fedor on his back and was submitted instantly when he did so. Fedor is vastly more dangerous than Randy both standing and on the ground, and as far as MMA is concerned, is a comparable wrestler.

orcus, I do not believe that Randy & Fedor's wrestling are compareable. Kevin & Mark are not good examples either, IMO.

Not going to happen because Fedor isn't going to drop that low in weight. He likes where he's at and he dominates at his weight. If he were going to drop to 205, he likely would've already done it. As for Randy - Fedor has never really had anyone on top of him or been ground 'n pounded for any length of time. He subbed Mark and Randleman in under 5 minutes combined. Randy has been subbed from the bottom as many times as Mark and Randleman have, so don't act like he's somehow imprevious and they're tapping left and right either. The only thing is, who knows how Fedor would do at 205? Would he be weaker without that weight? What about his balance and momentum...or even ability to push people around with the extra pounds? Lots of guys bust their ass to get smaller but are weaker and out of it as a result of losing it. I think the odds of Randy fighting above 205 are greater than Fedor's of dropping to it.

Fedor isn't going to drop weight - his body composition has remained relatively the same for quite some time now, and it appears that he's at his most comfortable natural weight.

No one is ever going to submit Randy while being pinned against the octagon.

In Pride Randy would train smart (like always) to avoid Fedor's subs & win a dec via superior gameplan.

Dropping to 205 would probably have a severly detrimental effect on Fedor's game. Fedor at HW is the most dangerous man on the planet and would obliterate Randy in the octagon, ring, street, field, wherever.

I actually don't like Randy that much or Team Quest.

I am just stating the facts, sir.

If Alexander Emilianenko become in line for the HW title. Maybe Fedor would move down to 205 to make room for his little bro. And he can challenge Vanderlei for the 205 title.

I think FunkyWB is an idiot Russians only know three things Fighting, Drinking, and making love... Fedor would make love to Randy in the ring after he pulled his pants down and poured vodka. remember Pedro? Multiply his beatings times 3 and you have Fedor. Lets not forget baby face steroid man and Ricco beating the life out of the old man. And lets not forget that Fedor knows judo - the answer to all!

1)  if you look at my original post you will see that I said "Fedor at LHW", making your comparisons meaningless.

2)  I know that you are thankful I didn't go up 3 weightclasses & fly out to NAGA & whoop your ass.

"orcus, I do not believe that Randy & Fedor's wrestling are compareable" In MMA I think they are. It's like how Dan Henderson is an oft-cited "world-class wrestler" but has been taken down and kept down by guys like Silva and Ninja for three rounds. Fedor's wrestling is some of the best I've seen in MMA. He is certainly better than Barnett and probably Ricco, both of whom reversed Randy and GnP'd him to victory.

LOL @ Fedor losing to Randy. If Randy taps or gets stopped from Ricco or Barnett he may be killed against Fedor. Randy is top two LHW for sure, but lets not compare to Fedor.

Would be awesome if this thread could still be relevent. Fedor at 205 with his superior wrestling may just be the guy to beat Jon Jones ;)

I'd be more interested to see how Jones handles Fedor's power/aggressiveness on the feet. Would he wilt under the pressure and get caught?
