It's the biggest UFC heavyweight fight in history when Frank Mir meets Brock Lesnar. It's power versus technique. It's midwestern farmboy v. smart talking west coast dude. You've got legit heavyweights at a combined 520 pounds going at it. But is it really the best v. best?
Affliction boss Tom Atencio, Kid Nate over at Bloody Elbow and Fedor Emelianenko fans, say no way (I happen to agree -- Fedor has been my No. 1 pound-for-pound since joining Yahoo! in June of 2008). It's still a great fight but 30-1 Fedor is looming in the background.
Bloody Elbow says there's a rumor that Atencio would like to hand out Affliction t-shirts to those sitting ringside so they can chant "Fedor-Fedor" and a website Fedorchant.com is pushing the story as well.
