Fedor Emelianenko Open Workout in NYC – Watch more Funny Videos

As mentioned earlier, Fedor Emelianenko visited Fighthouse Gym in New York City today to hit pads for a few minutes and sign autographs for fans. The open-workout portion of the appearance was very brief: Fedor fired some punches at Fighthouse’s resident Muay Thai pro Brandon Levi, struggled with a bizarre piece of training equipment called a "jump rope," then threw more punches at a heavy bag before deciding to give it a rest and set up shop at a signing table. Video of the action is above.

Before the workout, Emelianenko took questions from the press in attendance. Some highlights, via his interpreter…

On Josh Barnett: "We have good relationship, friendly relationship. I do not ask him any questions about what happened."

On Brock Lesnar: "I’m really very interested in a fight with Brock Lesnar, I would love to meet this fighter, but at the moment we haven’t come to the agreement with the UFC. Maybe next year." [crowd erupts in cheers]

On a superfight against Anderson Silva: "First of all, Anderson Silva is much lighter than me. Second, we cannot have a contract with the UFC. And the third, actually, I don’t think this kind of fight is possible, but he is very interesting and very strong fighter, but for now he’s with the UFC."

Below, Scott Coker explains how the Emelianenko vs. Rogers matchup came together, and shares some insight on the future of Strikeforce heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem.

GSP for Prime Minister- August 27, 2009 at 12:30 am
WOW look at the crowd watching fedor train.. you know what this reminds me of?!?!

Rocky 3... when Rocky gets too cocky and is distracted from all the media during his training..

OMFG and now that I think about it, Brett Rogers even LOOKS like a hungry Clubber Lang!!!

And we all know what happened to Rocky in his first fight with Clubber Lang..

If the odds are anything better than 3-1, I'm putting $500 on Rogers!!!

@ Brock Lesnars... oh come on! Did you seriously have to name yourself that? =P

... but if you could throw hands like Fedor after eating ice cream and hugging kitties? Yeah, I think we all would.

One Two- August 26, 2009 at 5:24 pm
That was awesome but eerilly reminded me of rocky 3 where hes training with all the press and clubber langs in the basement dungeon killing it. Oh shit does brett still have that clubber lang mohawk. haha actually after watching him hit those pads i was just reminded why hes gonna kill brett.

Like Chris Farley, Fkn Fedor is pretty nimble for a fat guy.
punchguyinface- August 26, 2009 at 5:15 pm
Not only is Fedor the world's greatest fighter, he is also the world's greatest jump-roper, and forever will be.

I was there, it was very cool. Gave him my cd (I'm a musician) - hope he listens :)

Stupid M-1, they had to ruin it all with the co-promote bs, we could have had a great year @ hw, now it is just going to be meat-head, doing his best to take down the sport one line at a time.
