MMA Quick Quote: Brock Lesnar would not make it out of first round against Fedor Emelianenko

"We would welcome a Fedor vs. Lesnar matchup, but to act in a preemptive fashion to address the possibility that UFC officials will try and position Lesnar as the No. 1 heavyweight in the world, much like they have tried to use a marketing ploy to brand Anderson Silva as the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world. In a match between Fedor and Lesnar, we do not feel that at this stage Lesnar would be able to make it out of the first round."

-- MMA's "Baghdad Bob," er, M-1 Global American Vice President Jerry Millen issues a statement via regarding the likely result of a potential match up between WAMMA Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko and newly crowned UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar that will more than likely never happen anytime soon - if ever. Unsurprisingly, the Russian cyborg heaps praise on Randy Couture -- the man who Lesnar defeated at UFC 91 -- for his performance against the former WWE superstar during the interview. The two have quite a bit of history together. So too do White and Millen. It's epic. Google it.
