That pic of Fedor and Hendo from a couple days ago got this sewing-circle we call the MMA media chatting about how Fedor was looking decidedly less pudgy than usual.  Had he finally ditched his presumably ice creamy and surely delicious diet in favor of cabbage soup?  Was this a sign of how serious he was taking this fight, of him finally changing his ways, and perhaps gearing up for a run at the 205-lb division where he really belongs?

Well, not so fast, kiddies.  A couple behind-the-scenes pics from yesterday’s Showtime photo shoot were posted on Strikeforce’s Facebook page, and it now appears that Fedor’s nationalistic t-shirt was probably just well-fitted and slimming.  These pics ain’t exactly high-resolution, but it definitely looks like while he might be slightly leaner now, his physique is still the same “everyman” doughyness that we’re used to seeing.  Oh well, I guess some folks never change.
