What is a former PRIDE champ to do when he gets to the U.S. five days prior to his next fight? Head to the mall, of course. What else?
Fedor arrived in the U.S. today ahead of his Strikeforce bout Saturday with Dan Henderson and immediately hopped inside a white stretch limo (are those still classy in Stary Oskol?) and jetted off to the closest shopping center with his colorful entourage. Perhaps he was in search of a new medium Glorious Sweater of Absolute Victory.
First stop? Toys ‘R’ Us, naturally. Where else would a group of burly middle age Russians go?
Next up was a stroll through the mall followed by a visit to some sort of log cabin trading post whose advanced architecture seemed to fascinate the group. After a brief browse through the shop’s various craft works and taxidermy items, the motley crew capped off their busy day with a jog through downtown Chicago. Overall, a pretty nice little Tuesday for those crazy Russians.
