That post is exactly why Fedor should stay far away from the UFC. He can be an "insider" legend beating up on sub-UFC talents. Couture's been in the epicenter of the sport's progression. He's seeing stuff in the gym, from moves to raw speed and power, that Fedor's never experienced. My guess is Couture would push the pace, get Emilianenko to gas and then rip through him.
