    They've said already that it won't be Barnett, but that people wouldn't complain about his opponent. I've seen rumors of Vitor, but nothing too serious. I think dream would probably let affliction borrow Cro Cop, unless he's busy at the time (pretty sure he is).

    To me, the candidate that seems most likely is kimbo slice. Affliction is holding this event on free tv, and Kimbo still has drawing power. Of course he'll be expected to lose badly, but that would kinda be the point. For those that haven't seen Fedor yet, what's a better introduction than the complete domination of a known name?

    Of course this is just a wild guess on my part, and I'm not even sure the contracts would allow it, but monetarily it makes a lot of sense to me for Affliction.

    lol yo if kimbos ass were to give fedor a loss via KO id die laughing because it would throw the MMA world in a frenzy... fedor would still be considered the best but you know how big of a deal the haters would make of that? i couldnt even imagine, probably because i would bet all money i make for the rest of my life that fedor wins lol

    It could definitely happen. The man has ko power, which can end a fight at any time.

    he's big enough to fight at HW right? didnt he always cut mad weight to make LHW?

    last time i seen him interviewed, i think he said he should be ready to fight around summer (around the time this event is going on)

    i'd honestly rather see the barnett/fedor fight as scheduled before seeing fedor maul tito ortiz

    pleeeease give fedor a respectable heavyweight!!

    Anyone who can't knock out James Thompson doesn't have KO power.

    As far as Tito, I seriously doubt it. Affliction said Fedor/Barnett wouldn't happen due to lack of funds(ie they couldn't pay Barnett enough to fight Fedor)...and well...Tito probably commands more dollar than Barnett.

    naa... when someone gasses in the first 2 minutes i doubt they gonna have a whole lot of KO power left.. his cardio is the problem not his power, thompson can take shots and has, why you think he acts as if hes fuckin retarded lol

    people act like KO power is hard to come by, theres more people with KO power than without, it's just a matter of landing a proper shot.. and having the right technique.. especially against somebody trained to fight

    Real talk im not a Tito fan in the least but i think Ortiz would give Fedor a pretty good fight. I dont think Ortiz can beat him at all. But i'd be interested to see if Fedor can stop Ortiz. It would be a more interesting bout then i think most people would give it credit for.
