"The Law" will be beaten bloody if this goes down. VERY bad match-up for him IMO.

Lindland is tough for sure, but too small IMO, get Fedor a HW or make him cut to 205.

Monson vs. Fedor is off according to mmaweekly. Monson is defending his belt in Cage Warriors in the UK.

Lindland would get submitted faster than when Werdum tapped him out at ADCC.

I think Linland would do ok for a while. But Fedor has an uncanny knack to use his striking to set up other things like subs or throws or takedowns. Bad matchup for Linland not to mention the size difference. But you got to hand to Linland if he takes this fight, he's a set of big balls. The Calf Cruncher

"You are going to tell me Lindland right now wouldn't beat Zulu, Coleman and Hunt?" he wouldn't beat Coleman or Hunt. unbelievable the amount of people wanting to see this match-up! It would be u-g-l-y.

This could make for an interesting fight but my guess is Lingland gets tooled. most people would probably disagree but I would much rather see Monson v. Fedor

I would be psyched as hell for this fight, but I think Fedor is just too big, too strong, and too fast. Lindland supposedly only weighed in at, iirc, 178 to fight Jeremy Horn in the IFL -- a fight at 185. He weighed in at 200 to fight Rampage at 205. Personally, I think Lindland would beat Coleman. Coleman is no threat standing and would gas sooner or later (by which I mean sooner). I also think he would have a great chance of beating Hunt.

he's too small naturally and isn't any kinf of threat to Fedor standing or on thr ground. I think Fedor would punish his body and then decapitate him.

the law has quite a set if he takes this fight...giving up like 30 pounds to the #1 fighter in the world. itd be quite a cinematic story if he won, in russia, giving up that amount of weight, beating a living legend...but i dont see it happening

"I would be psyched as hell for this fight, but I think Fedor is just too big, too strong, and too fast."

Fedor is NOT taller or stronger than Rampage. His belly fat might make him too heavy, maybe.

"Fedor is NOT taller or stronger than Rampage" Perhaps in the weight room, but in a grappling sense, yes, Fedor is much stronger than Rampage. Great courage on Ze Law's part, but Fabio is just too small to win this.

I can't really see Rampage, as strong as he is, suplexing 255lb Heath Herring like a ragdoll.

The responses on this thread have GOT to be trolling. No way can any educated MMA fan think that Lindland takes this one. And I think Lindland is great.

"Perhaps in the weight room, but in a grappling sense, yes, Fedor is much stronger than Rampage."

So, maybe your trying to say that Fedor is a better grappler. Otherwise, you are contradicting yourself.

"I can't really see Rampage, as strong as he is, suplexing 255lb Heath Herring like a ragdoll."

How much did Vov weight when Rampage slammed him? 220?

I have thrown guys bigger than Rampage on their head, and I am 5'6" and 160.  Would that be because of grappling experience and technique, do you think, or am I just "strong"?

Lindland is like an energy sponge. He just seems to be able to somehow sap the fight out of people. I think Fedor would beat him, but that Lindland would put up an incredible fight and make Fedor look very beatable at times. Fedor will have to come in at the top of his game to avoid the energy vampire.

I also think Fedor would win, but it certainly wouldn't be because of physical strength.

Lindland would be one of the few people that Fedor has fought that ihe is stronger than.
