If Henderson has 3 belts at once its going to be hard not to call him the best P4P.

eh....he has that lost to Misaki so i dont really know how legit that 185 title is. His fight to win the title in the 1st place was real close too with Bustamante. I hate the PRIDE non title BS. As much as I love PRIDE, I always hated that. Hendo is up there for sure with a win over Rampage, but to challenge Fedor he needs to beat the #2 in his division imo, which Fedor did twice. Hendo looked great against Wand, but Wand could be a shot fighter (and I LOVE Chute Boxe), nobody really knows. Lets just say that I am not as impressed with Hendo as most.

but i will say this, if he beats page and follows it up with a win over shogun and fedor is still fighting crap, hendo should be #1. Same goes for Shogun tho, I think a win over hendo would make him #1.

I agree, even if he beats Rampage, true MMA followers will probably consider Shogun the favorite, but if Fedor joins some minor league thing and kills everybody it will be Shogun or Hendo.

speaking of which, do you think Fedor will go to the UFC, I mean it will be a complete waste of arguably the best MMA fighter now if he is out fighting Brock Lesnar for the title fight or something.

I think the deal will get done eventually.

I've heard that they were very close on financial part of it, but couldn't agree on other aspects.

According to Fedor's rep, Dana doesn't want him to participate in Sambo tournaments anymore, something Fedor says is very important to him.

Also, Fedor wants other Red Devil fighters to be signed, Dana doesn't seem to be interested. There are some good fighters in that group, Dana should sign them.

yes I think he should also, just so he could get Fedor into the UFC, Fedor is a part man, part animal, part robot.

Wanderlie Silva is training w/ Couture now



plus he will make his UFC debut Dec 29.

I wish Liddell would have accepted the fight against him in november that would have been a great one.

The next MMA superstar will be Jake Rosholt, mark it down, he has only been training for a couple of months and Randy Couture called him the most natural puncher he has seen in years. http://youtube.com/watch?v=zsTbPesVqe4 plus he was a darn good wrestler so he has takedowns good.

i am confident dana will get the deal done......but if not, I have to put the blame on Fedor. It is very interesting that Wand is training with Randy considering Forrest also trains there........here's to hoping Silva keeps his mouth shut about Shogun.

I agree, Fedor admitted that UFC is the best financially, plus at the end of the day I think he signs, that is were he gets the best HWT competition, if he goes somewere else he will be fighting Kimbo or Brock Lesnar for title fights.

yeah u could make a case for that. Altho Gilbert himself didnt have an easy time with Kawajiri. Rankings wise u may have to go with melendez, but talent wise give me gomi and penn fo sho.

Oh well everyone should know how I feel about Penn, I didnt really include him in my LW rankings but he is for sure the best in that weight class if he stays there, he would be #2 in my P4P rankings, he may have the widest variety of skills in MMA right now, if only you could depend on his cardio.


MY P4P RANKINGS:

1. Fedor
2. BJ
3. Shogun
4. Dan Henderson
5. Anderson Silva
6. GSP (if it wasnt for his mental lapses he could be 1 or 2 overall)
7. Shinya Aoki
8. Paulo Filho
9. Takanori Gomi ( I am really down on him at the moment)
10. Kid Yamamoto

on the bubble: Theirry Sokoudjo, Bradon Vera, Rampage, Nick Diaz

(I just made this on the fly with no research so I am sure I left out deserving candidates)

RANDLEMAN ARREST DETAILS STRUGGLE

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Facing Numerous Charges

By Brian Knapp

Troubling new details have emerged in the recent arrest of former UFC heavyweight champion Kevin Randleman. A former three-time All-American and two-time national wrestling champion at Ohio State University, Randleman was arrested Aug. 16 in Goodsprings, Nev. and charged with the following offenses:

• Malicious destruction of private property
• Intimidating a police officer
• Being under the influence of a controlled substance
• Driving without a valid license
• Failure to drive in a travel lane
• Driving under the influence of liquor and/or drugs
• Speeding 21 to 30 miles per hour over the posted speed limit

Randleman, 37, was held at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas and later released on $11,600 bail. Randleman’s detention time could not be immediately obtained.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department report obtained Tuesday by The Fight Network, a driver, later identified as Kevin C. Randleman, was clocked at 91 miles per hour by Officer E.A. Mulkey at approximately 8:43 AM PST on Aug. 16. Upon pursuit, the officer reported observing the vehicle swerving between lanes and nearly striking multiple vehicles.

The driver eventually slowed to a stop on the right shoulder of the highway, the report said. As Mulkey approached the driver’s side of the vehicle, he noticed the driver slumping towards the steering wheel. He detected “a strong odor of alcohol,” and Randleman appeared “confused and unsteady” when he exited the vehicle, according to the report.

Randleman was cooperative at first, the officer wrote, but pulled away upon being searched for weapons. “Due to the subject’s size and physical condition,” he was placed temporarily in handcuffs for safety reasons. When asked if he had been drinking, Randleman admitted he had consumed “some beers and mixed drinks,” the report said.

Upon closer examination, Mulkey observed Randleman’s eyes to be bloodshot and watery, his pupils dilated. The officer administered a field sobriety test and noticed a “white powdery” substance in and around Randleman’s right nostril, according to the report. Randleman denied taking narcotics, Mulkey reported.

After he failed to produce valid identification, Randleman was placed under arrest and put into the back of Mulkey’s patrol car. According to the report, Mulkey asked Randleman if the handcuffs were too tight, to which he replied, “They’re fine.” Randleman did not become upset until a responding officer searched his vehicle, the report said. However, he became increasingly violent during transport, according to the report.

Randleman later complained about numbness in his hands, at which point Mulkey again offered to adjust the handcuffs. The officer reported that Randleman threatened that “if I got near him he would head butt me and take me out.” The report also indicated the former UFC champion said that the only reason he was in custody was because he was a big, black “N—r.”

En route to the Clark County Detention Center, Randleman “began headbutting the transport cage, and bent one of the metal bars separating the plexiglass, no longer allowing the partition to fully close,” the report said. Mulkey stated that Randleman slumped across the backseat following his final head butt. The 37-year-old then continued with racial remarks. According to the report, he told Mulkey “you have a bleeding black man in your car” and suggested the officer was responsible for his injuries. Randleman then kicked the rear door several times, the officer reported.

When Randleman arrived at the CCDC, he had to be restrained by several law enforcement officials. Mulkey reported that Randleman was subsequently informed of Nevada Implied Consent, which grants law enforcement the right to forcibly test subjects suspected of DUI. Randleman resisted the test, according to Mulkey’s report, and a “force blood draw” was administered.

Randleman’s case has been assigned to the Screening Division inside the Clark County District Attorney’s Office and is being reviewed by Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Ronald Bloxham.


The former PRIDE Fighting Championships star is currently serving a one-year suspension under the Nevada State Athletic Commission for providing a false urine sample devoid of human hormones following his Oct. 2006 loss to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at PRIDE 32 “The Real Deal” in Las Vegas. Randleman (16-12) has lost his last seven out of ten contests, earning his last victory in Oct. 2005.

Randleman’s attorney, James C. Gallo, of Las Vegas, declined comment.
