In an attempt to guard himself from all the stray bullets that continuously fly around Chicago, Fedor Emelianenko once again donned the Glorious Sweater of Absolute Victory during an appearance at the Bears/Browns game on Sunday. Emelianenko sustained no bullet wounds, and the Bears won — once again proving the fearsome power of the horizontally-striped invincibility cloak.
Speaking of the Last Emperor, Emelianenko just wrapped up a media conference call with Brett Rogers and Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker. Some highlights, via MMA Fanhouse:
— Fedor doesn’t get nervous before or during a fight. However: "One day before the fight I might be nervous, I’m a human being."
— Fedor said his marriage won’t affect his fight in any way, negative or positive. Also, he says his fighting style will not be affected whether the fight takes place inside a ring or a cage.
— Scott Coker expects a sell-out on Saturday. He says that Strikeforce just signed with an international TV distributor that they will announce in a few weeks.
— Coker has no interest in working with Aleksander Emelianenko until Aleks takes care of his "issues with the commissions."
— Fedor has only seen bears at a zoo, and figures that a bear would be hard to fight.
