    Lets hope Mr. Dana White can finally get something signed with that management of Fedor that seems to want the world on a platter.
    I hope Fedor comes with out his management and Lorenzo bops Dana on the head and sends him out to fetch him some coffee. After Fedor takes a beating from Lesnar but pulls of a late sub it could set a superfight against Anderson Silva which would be the biggest fight in UFC history!!

    LOL at the biggest fights in history. I think all 3 of Brock's fights were, at the time, the biggest in history but since then, at least BJ-Penn has surpassed it.

    I don't think the UFC would allow Fedor to come in for one fight. Although Lesnar is a challenge, Fedor has so many more ways to win. They wouldn't want him winning and then walking away.

    The UFC is willing to give him lots of money, but unwilling to give him equal contractual terms. I think they are worried that they can not make one exception to their standard contract (automatic renewals, ability to drop fighters who lose)

    Well thats the funny thing they hyped UFC 91, 92, and 94 as the biggest ppv in history and each one toppled the last in terms of ppv buys.

    they kept toppling each other cause all the WWE fans in the trailer parks kept buying the PPV's, hoping to see Brock run down the aisle, climb the steel cage(octagon) and do a shooting star press onto a downed fighter, then pick him up, execute an F5 and get the one, two, three.

    By that standard, all of the Affliction fights were meaningless and should be compared to King of the Cage matchups.

    Well Affliction is on the verge of going out of business.

    UFC 92 was a great card and GSP vs. Penn was the most anticipated fight in a long time. Definitely more important than any of the Affliction cards.

    Lets not rank fights based on PPV buys. I guess ever Pride fight sucked since they had to be sold on the verge of going under.

    Both Affliction cards were packed and we got to see Fedor meet a former UFC champ in both main events.

    Fedor - Arlovski and BJ-GSP were two of the most interesting matchups in recent years, but I was looking forward more to the Fedor fight since I always thought Arlovski was the UFC guy most likely to beat him.

    Im not ranking the fights. I just said that the last three ppvs for UFC did huge numbers. The UFC never specified want they meant by huge so according to their standards they could have been going by the ppv numbers.

    The second affliction was very thin on meaningful fights. Barnett is a top 3 or 4 heavyweight and he fought a guy who is maybe ranked in the top 40.

    UFC 91 was decent on paper but turned out to be a very good card in terms of entertainment.

    UFC 94 was much better on paper but wasnt that great overall.

    UFC 92 was good on the paper and turned out to be a good night of fights.

    I was looking forward to the Fedor fight but he was still a heavy favorite.
