Fedor Talks Couture, Lesnar, and Appeals to Dana White’s Conscience

In this video from RawVegas.tv, Russian stoic philosopher Fedor Emelianenko drops some knowledge regarding the issues of the day, including his thoughts on Randy Couture and his somewhat surprising admission that he is impressed by Brock Lesnar. My personal favorite is when he responds to Dana White’s earlier criticism of him by remarking that the UFC president’s comments are on his own conscience and he’s the one who will have to live with them. These are the moments that make me wonder if Fedor isn’t some being sent from another world in order to teach us all to be kinder to one another. Then I rewatch his bout with Tim Sylvia and I am forced to abandon that theory.

this fight will be a technical fight i believe. anyone who is a practioner be it stand up or ground knows this. will be a tough one to call but i would have to say brock fell to technique to mir. and fedor is a better technical fighter. his focus is like no others. but randy will be a different story very technical very strong a determened pitbull. for his ambition i go with randy

I think Dana is just a business trader and he sells things (entertainment) and i think he'll never understand the fighter's point of view. Fedor is a fighter and the Mma world is known for it's fair-play and fighter-to-fighter respect. He is just a fighter like any other fighter and nota celebrity. That is something Dana will never know what it is because he sells celebrities!

Magnum: I was asking myself what happened to Lashley, if he will ever come back to WWE. He will be another beast in the cage...Glad to hear it and can't wait to see him again in action.

Fedor is Jules from Pulp Fiction. He's McClain from Die Hard. He's the Terminator, John Matrix, and Conan combined. He's Kratos. He's Dante. He's Darth Vader[without the "NOOOO!!!"]. He's Rocco Siffreddi. In other words, He's the baddest mother fucker on two legs, and he'll screw up your whole day. Did I forget to say he's Master Chief? Better recognize.

To all the people who think Lesnar would wreck Fedor...need I remind you that Lesnar got subbed in about 2 min by a washed up Frank Mir not too long. So kindly hop off of Brock's jock, and uh, subscribe to something I like to call "REALITY". Fedor is right to give him props for being a great up & coming force in MMA. But to suggest that Brock even belongs in the same sentence (let alone the same ring/octagon) would suggest to me that you are a noob who has no clue about the dynamics of MMA.

Here's some news for the Brock Jockriders...Bobby Lashley will likely be fighting on an MMA card before the end of the year. Maybe if he wins, he can earn a shit at Fedor too.

I had no idea DW made that comment about Fedor! I had no idea what an idiot Dana White is either!

i don't think that lesnar would have a chance with fedor though i loved to see fedor pummel lesnar's face like he did to sylvia and choke him to teach him a lesson to respect opponents. Couture and fedor is different. It would be a classic fight between two classy fighters that would be remembered by MMA fans for many years.

Thanks for the video, first time on the site. Nice change from the Ignoratti at another MMA site...
Your thoughtful comments below the video were great.
Fedor's unassuming and genteel attitude outside of the ring are a credit to all of MMA, and mankind in general.

I have seen most (95%) of Fedors ring appearances and many of his Combat Sambo matches. There is no one else like him on the planet.

The G. Dog at the UFC should really shut his mouth. He is always making a fool of himself every time he opens it. He can not seem to resist the verbal diarrhea of moronic and self serving comments. As for Lesnar, he should not be mentioned on the same page. Fedor has been dismembering guys much bigger (not to mention classier) and more experienced in Sambo for years. I have seen him throw bigger guys then Lesnar around like playthings from his toychest. Sometimes the toys did not make it back into the chest in one piece, either.
His MMA matches are better known, but monsters were made for this polite slayer, and Lesnar would not look good with an arm sticking out of his ass.



I have only seen Fedor speak of Dana White one other time, when he was asked about the G. Dog's animosity towards him, and endless trash talking.

His reply was one short sentence that reduced White to his core:

"He is inadequate"

"nuff said.

Such a gent as well never gets drawn into slanging match's always cool and respectful.

Lot of respect for that guy not just his fighting which is peerless.

Is it just me or does that translator of his ALWAYS translate more than Fedor is obviously saying? It's like every freaking interview.

Fedor: "??????"
Translator: "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal..."

lesnar vs fedor would be an awesome fight.
i can see lesnar manhandling any heavyweight out there.
likewise i can see fedor submitting anyone.

irrestible force vs immovable object

Fedor always looks so sleepy :3

fedor does have the serene stoned look of buddha in his eyes.......

Fedor is awesome. Brock is etertaining and I would like to see him go far, but I would have to root for Fedor is they ever fought. People may not give credit to Choi, but he did leave marks on Fedor and did a little damage. That fight reminded me a lot of Lesnar and Mir. I believe that Fedor would manage a sub if he and Brock ever fought. I really want Affliction to last so I hope Fedor does not jump ship.

At what point are we allowed to worship him as a God?

i'm gonna laugh if fedor signed with the ufc, fought lesnar and was destroyed! i would jump on the brock band wagon n praise his cock on his chest! maybe get one myself!

Wow look Fedor gave props to Brock Lesnar now if only all the members of the Hate Club would take there heads out there ass and realize this... I can't wait for Coture vs Fedor it's going to be amazing.. and Brock vs Fedor hmmm... I dunno that'd be pretty fucking fun to watch to.. But you'll all say he doesn't deserve the fight and that he'd get owned so continue on with your lives its off to get some food!
