I think he's only signed as a special attraction. I don't think he's going to do well at all. I think people will tune in to see how long he lasts not how good he does. The curiosity of him fighting will bring in some ticket sales which is needed since the pricetag of Fedor (and M-1) is a hefty one.

i mean, no worse than kimbo slice being in elitexc and now the UFC. he is a 6th degree black belt in TKD, and has been studying muay thai for a few years as well. only a year older than couture. he has always been a physical specimen. i dont know, why not?

Still bullshit. No other sport would be accepting of athletes from different sports coming in to test the waters at a somewhat high level. Herschel is a great athlete, but would get laughed out of the NBA/MLB/NHL and the NFL. Gimmick fighters don't do anything to advance the integrity of the sport.

true, but at the same time, MMA is young and nowhere near the level of these sports. they are trying to get exposure anyway they can... maybe they tune in because they hear he is fighting, and then stumble on some actually talented fighters that they like.

the one thing i do like about this is that he is donating all of his winnings to charity since he doesn't need the money. He also has his own personal Tapout shirt that his royalties are also going to charity as well.

Amazing.

He did an interview for ESPN and all he did was call out Dana White to fight him in a MMA Bout. He then went on to say he could beat any of the Heavyweights on this season of TUF. And he totally forgot to say anything about Strikeforce, the organization he signed with.
