I love a Fedor fight but honestly, I always think of him as the underdog. I think Silva is a pretty good match up for him, 2nd round KO in Fedor's favor.

I was still clinging to some faint hope that he would finish his contract with M-1 and not re-sign but I guess that's never happening.

Pretty sad to see from a fan's perspective. It's his career and his life, he's well off enough that he doesn't need to do anything for money, but as a fan it's really disappointing to see probably the greatest fighter to ever compete fighting in a secondary promotion and not in the UFC.
