    According to this he failed to meet medical requirements, but it doesn't specify further due to privacy laws. If he had just failed to get his documentation in on time I think the CSAC would have come out and said so (they have in the past), so it must have been an actual medical issue.

    I read a thread on Sherdog (I know I know) where a guy was claiming that he talked with Buentello and Buentello said Aleks had Hepatitis. Just another one of your sherdog rumors. :dunno:

    wow that would be a bummer if we could never ever see aleks fight on US soil
     
  12. Yeah. I'd be sad if he was never exposed for the mediocre fighter he is in a big venue.

    I think he was joking. At least I really hope so. :squint:
     
  18. Aleks is hugely overrated. He can barely wrestle and is pathetic on the ground. He is fast, agile, and can punch really hard. He's only made it as far as he has because the heavyweight division is so thin and so thin of sluggers.

    Still, a fight between him and someone like Overeem is a toss-up.
     
  19. Lets look at Aleks' record vs. fighters that are worth anything.

    Loss Fabricio Werdum Submission (Choke) 2H2H - Pride & Honor 11/12/2006 1 N/A
    Win Sergei Kharitonov TKO (Strikes) PRIDE - Final Conflict Absolute 9/10/2006 1 6:45
    Loss Josh Barnett Submission (Keylock) PRIDE - Total Elimination Absolute 5/5/2006 2 1:57
    Loss Mirko Filipovic KO PRIDE - Final Conflict 2004 8/15/2004 1 2:09
    Win Assuerio Silva Decision (Split) PRIDE - Bushido 1 10/5/2003 2 5:00

    Yeah man, you are right, anyone who loses to those guys fucking sucks
     
  22. That's not what I said. Just that he's overrated. He deserves about the same respect as a heavyweight as Alistair Overeem.

    Also consider how he lost to them.
