And Barnett is still ranked as the number 2, so accepting this fight was and is the only real chance of him getting a loss.

    The argument I was trying to make is that sheer size doesn't mean an immediate ability to overpower an opponent, you need the skills to run alongside it.
    I know what you're arguing, but you're again (intentionally or not) missing the original posters extremely clear point.

    You're choosing to interpret the word "overpower" to mean manipulate or get the upper hand whether through technique. The original point made was that Brock uses POWER to overPOWER his opponents whereas Fedor uses superior technique.

    CraigSt.Clair,

    The point that Dana missed is that Fedor is number 1, he doesn't have to go anywhere to find opponents, opponents come to him.

    Well since Dana clearly has the MMA fans at heart and wanted to do this for the MMA fans and not for the massive earning potential of the fight im sure he will release Brock to fight Fedor in Strikeofrce
