Dana White: Who Wants To See Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko Fight?

Me!

It's well known that I'm a mark for both men, for wildly different reasons, so when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White recently posed this incendiary question on the Underground, it was my duty to help out the despondent mixed martial arts (MMA) despot.

Indeed, White -- who is perhaps bored and trolling MMA forums because he has nothing to do this weekend -- actually asked for fan feedback on a fight between former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar, and his personal white whale, Fedor Emelianenko.

White's post:

"Is this the fight u guys want to see? Post a thread asking if people want to see this fight."

True to MMA forum form, a thread was immediately created and "exploded" with an avalanche of comments. And who could blame them: When a hacker "announced" the showdown on the M-1 Global website just a few months ago, the MMA universe nearly melted.

For the sake of responsible "journalism," it's important to point out that a recent meeting between White and Lesnar -- who retired from the sport and raced into the open, and lucrative, arms of the WWE -- "did not go well." On the flipside, prior to his MMA retirement earlier this year, Emelianenko left the door open just a smidge for a future fight with Lesnar, saying "anything is possible."

With UFC 151 canceled, and no breaking news to pass along, let's play along and party like it's fucking 2009.
