I’ve been watching MMA for a pretty good stretch of years now and have heard more than my fair share of hilarious excuses for a loss, but this one easily takes the cake:
Fedor Emelianenko’s coach Vladimir Voronov has presented an interesting theory for his fighter’s loss to Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva on Saturday night.
“We believe that forbidden psychological technology was used… It seems to us that not everything was right, and that certain technologies were used. Not ones that could be seen by the naked eye but psychological technologies that worked on both fighters at a distance,” he said to Russian website LifeSports.ru.
I guess a trainer will do and say some crazy shit when the fighter they’ve hitched their wagon to suddenly doesn’t seem like the hottest meal ticket in town anymore. That or Voronov is just, like, really into New Age:
Voronov also observed with suspicion the fact that Fedor seemed to look “a little depressed” while Silva “literally glowed from the overflowing of his energy”. Voronov suspects the use of a person or persons in the audience capable of “blocking energy” and “transferring energy from one person to another”.
Look out, Jerry Millen and Vadim Finkelstein. There’s a new contender for “Biggest Idiot in Fedor’s Camp” on the block, and he’s bringing the heat. Maybe Fedor’s next camp will consist of Vornov ” target=”_blank”> Fuckin’ voodoo magic!
