Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Fedor vs. Andrei In-Depth

According to our current poll, about 75% of you think Fedor Emelianenko is going to beat Andrei Arlovski during their "Day of Reckoning" main event fight on January 24th. (Also, more of you think the fight will end with a no contest due to accidental cut than a submission win for Arlovski.) That pretty much reflects the general vibe of the latest Affliction promo clip, which focuses on the matchup between the Last Emperor and the Pitbull. While Arlovski certainly has a legitimate chance at winning, few people expect a loss for the Michael Jordan/Tiger Woods of MMA, who is either "unhuman" or "just a human," depending on who you ask. It’s too bad that Affliction doesn’t have access to the PRIDE and UFC video libraries, because the only visual evidence of Fedor’s dominance in the clip is his laughable walk-throughs against Tim Sylvia and Hong Man Choi, and when Arlovski’s past setbacks are mentioned, we don’t see any of the abuse he took at the hands of Timmy. Ah well — they can’t all be $1.7 million productions.

Related: DreamFighters recently put up a great training profile/interview with Fedor. Here’s an excerpt:

Fedor does not have a cook or a specific diet, but sticks to eating three meals a day. While he strives to eat healthily, he does not go out of his way to limit himself. Mostly, Fedor’s diet consists of meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. He also takes in as much liquid as he can, such as fresh juices and herbal teas. Fedor tries to stay away from soda, french fries and candy—some of his favorites when not training. He also refrains from drinking alcohol when he is training.
What is your relationship with Vladimir Putin?
“We do not talk on a regular basis. It is just that he had seen one of my fights on TV and took an interest. Vladimir Putin has always been very kind to me and I have always appreciated his interest in my career and the sport of MMA. We have in common our love for Sambo, the National sport in Russia as well as MMA. Vladimir Putin is a black belt in Judo and a master in Sambo. I have promised him that I would always participate in Sambo if I was able to, so that I could be a role model for young people in Russia and continue the rich tradition of the sport." 
What countries do you like to visit?
“Japan and the United States and any place that has scary roller coasters.

fedor will crush arlovski in one round. andrei has good hands, power and conditioning, but it won't be enough. that being said AA's skills would dismantle most of the clowns in the UFC heavyweight class.

good hype video, until that fukin douchebag Jerry Millen showed up. I wish nothing but AIDS upon that man.

scary rollercoasters? haha

Some day I bet I'ma jump on the Ragin' Bull at Six Flags and look to my right and see Fedor eating a bunch a cotton candy.
skidding- January 15, 2009 at 3:47 pm
Well, his name isn't pronounced the way most people on this forum think it's pronounced.

I learned that his named is actually pronounced fyodoor, and not Fayder like most Americans think.

Dear Ugly Chick,
STOP CALLING HIM FUH-DOOR. A Fedora is a hat, not a fighter. Pronouncing his name wrong doesnt grant you journalistic individuality, it makes you a retard.
I hate you.
Jay Smith- January 15, 2009 at 3:17 pm
Am I the only dumb sum-bitch that thinks Arlovski has a chance to win this fight???
Eat My Buns- January 15, 2009 at 3:12 pm
i can imagine fedor facing scary rollacoasters and laugh like an emo child
fedor: "hah."
CubicalGangster- January 15, 2009 at 2:34 pm
Can you imagine Fedor on a fucking roller coaster? Docile as a cow. No emotion, especially when that hidden camera takes the photo op right before "The Death Plunge" he just stares blankly hardly registering anything.

Nice to see Fedor and his little dictator friend have sambo in common. Isn't that cute?

"How do you beat a guy who's unbeatable? (douche-ish shoulder shrug) That's the million dollar question."

Andrei looks great, and training with Freddy Roach will help him dramatically in this fight and others in the future. I have no doubt that he will come out and try to give one of the best performances of his career. That said, Fedor by Kimura.

@ Canadian Hoser dude

I know, but all those dudes moved around weight classes and seemed to have fought each other at some point. Back in Pride's glory days, when Rampage and Wandy and Barnett and others were at their peak, they might have given Fedor a run for his money. Hell Nog and Randleman beat CroCop. Fedor couldn't.
Canadian Hoser- January 15, 2009 at 1:43 pm
shitwistle most of those guys are 205, by the way you should check out the interview where rampage says he would not fight fedor. Sorry but fedor would crush rampage and silva and frye and sakuraba and yoshida. I would put allot of money on it that he could do it in one night. I don't give arlovski one minute with fedor.
Bootylam!- January 15, 2009 at 1:40 pm
@ Slitwhistle- You're saying Fedor could be the MMA version of Tyson. Oh yes I did!
shitwhistle- January 15, 2009 at 1:28 pm
Look.. I love Fedor. I do. Great fighter (best ever?), great guy, humble. I love him.
However, during his Pride days, he never faced Barnett, never faced Rampage, never faced Sakuraba, never faced Yoshida, never faced Frye, never faced Silva, only beat CroCop once by decision. My point is while he's essentially undefeated, there are lots of top notch talent he could have potentially lost to, he just never faced them.

What am I saying? ... fuck if I know.

Fedor FTW
Acrocerid- January 15, 2009 at 1:23 pm
I still hate Atencio. That guy is a prick.

Also, not looking forward to the aftermath of this fight.

Case 1: Net is overflowing with "I told you Fedor was the man. You said he hasn't faced anyone real and he tore up Arlovski"


It's not really true either way...but that's what people will say.

$50 to the first person whos slaps that annoying bitch Loretta Hunt and gets in on tape. Fuhdor this and Fuhdor that, SHUT THE HELL UP!
EDDI- January 15, 2009 at 1:14 pm
Every time she pronounced "Fedor" like that..i wanted to commit murder

sure, if you count getting cut by an elbow in a match where elbows aren't allowed losing.
