MMAWeekly snagged an interview with Fedor but who knows, they could have just been talking to M1’s PR agent for all the candor they got out of him. Here’s some highlights:
Emelianenko: Dana talks a lot and uses words lightly. Let Randy Couture fight me. Allow this fight that everyone wants to take place. Me, Randy and MMA fans all over the world want it. The only obstacle is Dana.
Emelianenko: I trust in (M-1) and the good people that they have brought together. M-1 gives me the chance to meet champions from various organisations in the ring, instead of being restrained within the limits of one organization.
Yes Fedor, it’s Dana’s fault that you’re not fighting top class fighters. It’s Dana’s fault you’re stuck fighting Hong Man Choi for NYE and Pedro Rizzo in April. M1 will line you up against the absolute best unless Dana White stops them from doing so.
When people speak out about Dana and Zuffa being cocksuck backstab bastards, I’m usually the first to point out “Hey, they’re right about that, you know.” But I’m not about to listen to Fedor talk as if M1 is going to set him up against the best in the world when they’re clearly ducking dangerous opponents.
