  1. Fedor, Brock, the Czar and his ministers

    Chuck Mindenhall

    In a media scrum this past weekend in Chicago, Dana White casually mentioned how close the world was from getting a battle of colossals. You know, Brock Lesnar versus Fedor Emelianenko -- the heavyweight fight he said was light years from ever happen...

  2. Five wave-makers moving from Strikeforce

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It's fight week, and it's flight week. No more Strikeforce after Saturday night. No more wondering if and when we'll be sold on Josh Thomson-Gilbert Melendez IV. No more decagon, and no more second-class citizenry. At long last, the long road ends...

  3. The Lesnar/Fedor fight that never was

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It took some time and liquidation, but the UFC's heavyweight division is finally made up of beasts. It's to the point that there's a legitimate top pairing (Cain Velasquez versus Junior dos Santos) with a behemoth flexing in the wings (Alistair Overe...

  4. Fedors legacy more than wins and losses

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Fedor Emelianenko didn't lament his losses like his fans did, and he didn't smite his chest as the world's greatest fighter back when people argued he was just that. He never talked smack to his opponents, and didn't tweet smiley faces when bad thing...

  5. The thudding nature of UFC 147

    Chuck Mindenhall

    If we're talking volume alone, this is the biggest fight weekend that ever labored so hard to raise an eyebrow. And out of all the MMA going on this weekend -- Fedor Emelianenko versus Pedro Rizzo in St. Petersburg (good luck finding a feed) going...

  6. Five things to look for at Strikeforce

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It took 15 months and some monumental forks in the road to arrive at the end point of the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix. No, it didn't go the way people thought it would, nor the way many hoped. There isn't going to be Fedor Emelianenko versus J...

  7. Notes and Nuggets from New York City

    Chuck Mindenhall

    NEW YORK -- For as stacked as the UFC 146 card appears for Memorial Day weekend, it's really two title fights (Urijah Faber/Dominick Cruz and Chael Sonnen/Anderson Silva) and a pack of glitzy non-consequential match-ups (Cung Le/Rich Franklin and For...

  8. No Reem? Consider these guys for JDS

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Another day, another hot urine test, another busted main event ... and, alas, another (potential) domino sequence. So continues life in the mixed martial arts. This time it's Alistair Overeem who raised the red flag, the very same Overeem who elud...

  9. The heavyweights truly arrive in May

    Chuck Mindenhall

    The biggest heavyweight fight in UFC history between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez lasted a minute and four seconds. It was so brief that the coveted casual fan that tuned in to FOX that night was left with these four lonely words -- wait, so ...

  10. Henderson would like to fight, not wait

    Chuck Mindenhall

    If there was one spectator of the UFC on FOX 2 show in Chicago on Jan. 28 with a heavily vested interest, it was Dan Henderson, the circumstantial No. 1 contender in the light heavyweight division, and a circumstantial top challenger in the middlewei...

  11. From Russia with pipedreams

    Chuck Mindenhall

    In the span of a week, Cain Velasquez went from indomitable heavyweight champion to casualty of Junior dos Santos' right hand on network television. Meanwhile, Fedor Emelianenko went from washed-up heirloom from his Pride days to a surging force to b...

  12. Big weekend in MMA (but be ready to pay)

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Free was nice, and free was big -- and big was always the intention. But now that we're through with the privilege of bonus title fights on network television and dangling MMA in front of bemused pop culture, it's back to our secular intrigues. Or...

  13. Breakfast with Emelianenko or snooze?

    Chuck Mindenhall

    On Nov. 20, Fedor Emelianenko will fight Jeff Monson. If you're at the Olympic Arena in Moscow, Russia, where the fight is being held, this takes place at a reasonable hour; in the United States, it occurs either during your snooze button moments or ...

  14. Fedor versus Monson a slippery slope

    Chuck Mindenhall

    Heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko had one of the greatest runs in MMA history -- if not the greatest. Between 2000-2010, he went without a loss. But since getting caught by Fabricio Werdum in June 2010 with a triangle/armbar, the "Last Emperor" h...

  15. The cans are starting to align for Fedor

    Chuck Mindenhall

    It wasn't quite two weeks ago that Fedor Emelianenko lost to Dan Henderson and had people wondering if that was his unceremonious outro. Almost everybody wanted to know, after his third straight loss, if that was the last time we'd see Fedor compete....

    Chuck Mindenhall

    To the victor go the spoils -- in this case, more big paydays and a possible run at another title for Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson.
