Do you think there’s any way that Fedor Emelianenko realizes what a sensation his Glorious Sweater of Absolute Victory has become on the American MMA scene? Here he is, a man just trying to stay warm and accentuate his natural contours with some horizontal stripes, and the world (okay, mainly just us, "Mayhem" Miller, and a few other people) is captivated by this signature sweater of his. I actually hope no one tries to explain it to him. I’m afraid he might take it the wrong way if he hears that the nice boy with the severe mental disorder who gave him the thumbs up was not entirely sincere.
What’s more, I suspect the ubiquitous sweater might be having an effect on internet oddsmakers. Since yesterday the odds on Fedor went from an already extreme -500 with most bookmakers, to as high as -550 in some places and -625 in others. The line on Rogers has also moved, making him slightly greater than a 5-1 underdog with one oddsmaker. Maybe you ought to hold off on putting money down on "The Grimm." If Fedor keeps showing up around Chicago in that invincibility cloak of his, Rogers could hit +700 by fight night.
