Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva Review, Nick Ring Interview
On this episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio, host Jeff “Wombat” Meszaros and co-host James Kellaris review “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva” where former heavyweight juggernaut Fedor Emelianenko fell short for the second time, losing by a horrifying beating to Antonio “Pezao” Silva. Is Fedor done for good? Or will his management force him to keep fighting against his will? What about Arlovski? After an equally-terrifying knockout loss to Sergei Kharitonov, should he hang up his four-ounce gloves for good? We certainly hope so. Tune in and find out why, like there’s any mystery about our reasons. Hint: We don’t want to watch him die. Getting back to Fedor, does that guy need to learn some jiu-jitsu or what? Is he going to improve his ability to hang with guys like Werdum and Silva on the ground? Why wasn’t Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueria able to do that when he fought Fedor years ago in Pride? Don’t miss our guesses and finger-pointing as we try to explain it. What about the other fights? What happened there? We cover most of it, then we move on to chat with Ultimate Fighter veteran Nick Ring, who makes his UFC debut next week against DEEP champion Riki Fukuda. Catch the wacky banter as we take a trip down memory lane, touching on the time Ring fought Jeff, a riot that later nearly happened, and the always-engaging topic of knee surgeries and sobering conversations with concerned doctors. All this, plus his thoughts on the match, memories of being in the TUF house and almost-predictions for the rest of the card. If this show was soup, it would be “Mmmmm good”!
