Fedor in his prime was the most well rounded, most savage fighter of all time. A decade undefeated as an undersized heavyweight against all of the biggest and best fighters at the time. He's beaten more UFC heavyweight champions than anyone else in MMA history.
Fedor in his prime would have beat crackhead steroid cheat Jon Jones. If Vitor, a natural middleweight was able to almost break jones' arm imagine what Fedor would have done. He'd either rip his arm off or catch him with a Russian bomb. Jones and his steroids wouldn't be able to keep the distance forever against a prime Fedor. Guarantee it. 
Of course tho, Fedor is fair complected so the entire community will probably undermine him and pretend he doesn't exist. Much like they do to GSP even tho he has a better and more accomplished resume than steroid boy jones. People pretend Stipe doesn't exist either even tho he doubled every other ufc heavyweight champ in title wins and defenses. This sport used to be so much better.

Now we got champs like aljo, leon, overrated pereira, 3rd rate jamahal hill.... and heavyweight doesn't even have a champ anymore. Dana was too busy trying to wrestle the belt away from Stipe the ufc heavyweight goat that he got a worse option in Ngannou. lmao

Hoping Fedor make his last fight a win.  I've seen him fight three times around Chicago.

I'm more hoping Fedor just doesn't get knockout in under a minute like  the last time he fought Bader, Honesly if this is a good fight it be a win for me, MMA is more then just wins and loses sometime

I'd advise anyone planning to include Hokit in any big parlays to reconsider after what happened to Downey. Lots of these university wrestling stars coming into Bellator on dodgy lines.

I doubt Hokit will ever have odds of -700 or similar again until he shows something else in his fights. But in his last fight Hokit dismantled a guy with an undefeated record and roids acne, which was supposed to expose his ''weak chin'' again, it turned out that in the second round Hokit gave him a real beating in striking (he didn't show spectacular KO Power, but it made him look really bad in the trade). It is true that the jaw is not trained (the issue of KOs is a more cerebral issue) but I think people are very suspicious of a man who was knocked out in his first punch with MMA Fighter when his entire wrestling career was clearly not prepared. to receive a punch in the face.
After his defeat, he kept training and clearly his reflexes and defensive instincts have improved, after the lose he really knows than his opponents can throw punches to his face and what that really means.

Not gonna lie, UFC keeping their event at a 10pm start time to compensate moving the event out of South Korea is huge for Bellator next weekend.

This is about as stacked as a Bellator card can possibly be and it won't have to compete with the UFC for views.
