I don’t care who you put in front of Brock Lesnar, if that person is not Fedor Emelianenko, Lesnar will destroy anyone else who stands in his way.


The way Lesnar pummelled Frank Mir in UFC 100, it’s hard to find anyone else in the UFC who’s able to go toe to toe with this beast.


Brock cemented himself as the bad man of the UFC with his negative comments during the post fight interview aiming towards Mir despite getting the victory.


Possible matchups for Brock includes Shane Carwin, Cain Velasquez, and maybe Mirko Cro-Cop if he decides to fight in the UFC again as they are the only ones capable of standing up to Lesnar although I do not see any of them taking the belt away from the champion in a five round bout.


News has surfaced from Dana White, the president of the UFC that he “will make Fedor vs. Lesnar happen”.


After Fedor’s fight with Josh Barnett in Affliction: Trilogy on August 1st, win or lose, Fedor will officially become a free agent and be able to sign with any MMA organization he wishes.


Dana White should make every effort to putting Fedor on the UFC roster when the time comes.


A fight of such epic proportion between the Last Emperor Fedor and the Beast that is Brock Lesnar, will be bigger than what UFC 100 delivered which was already quite amazing by MMA standards.


If Lesnar vs. Fedor is on, the co-main event of George St-Pierre and Anderson Silva in a catch weight would top any fight cards ever assembled.


As good as Fedor really is, I am giving the edge to Brock Lesnar if they are fighting in a UFC octagon based on the fact that he is the heavyweight champion in the UFC, defeated Randy Couture and Frank Mir without getting as much as a scratch, and he is also more familiar with the UFC rules and the octagon.


Fedor is still the consensus no.1 heavyweight fighter in the world but he has not shown his dominance for his last fight with Andrei Arlovski until he knocked Arlovski out with one punch.


At the meantime, I am going to wait patiently while sipping on a Coors light instead of Bud light because Brock Lesnar said so.
