Fedor Returns: Strikeforce “Fedor vs Werdum” Quotes

One week away till “The Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko returns to the US to face Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce “Fedor vs Werdum” on June 26th from the HP Pavilion in San Jose. Here are a few quotes from the media day conference call,

Fedor on the UFC,

“I’m not a fan of watching their fights … I’ve seen what seems to be a negativity involved in a lot of their shows.”

“I think it’s a combination in some ways of how the fights are presented and the manner they are presented … Also, in some ways, the behavior of a lot of fighters in the UFC takes away from the sport.”

“I think both fights [ours and Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin] are very important because you’ve got four world class heavyweights in the top ten of their sport … But I’m not a UFC fan. I would invite all the fans to watch our fight, which I believe is the more important one.”

Like we didn’t know,

I deal directly with Vadim Finkelstein, but I leave most every decision to him.

Fedor on a run in politics,

“While I’m actively fighting, I don’t intend to pursue a career in politics. It’ not something that’s on my mind at the moment”

  1. how in the stinky hell does he think his fight with werdum is more important than brock/carwin???

    And how is strikeforce more of a "positive" show after their CBS brawl than the UFC.

    I'm a mma fan first. I love all the shows. But the UFC has a professional brand through and through.

    IF Werdum wins then maybe this fight will seem more important looking back because it was Fedors first loss.

    BUT going into the fights –Lesnar/carwin is much more significant and will be seen by many more ppl and will make a SHIT load more money than Fedors little scrap against the guy who got CUT from the UFC after he got finsihed by Dos Santos.

  3. Scott Coker says:

    You two Dana Nut Huggers are clueless.

    Fedor is the best fighter in the world period. He does not need to prove this by fighting serious competition, and he's right about the evil empire UFC, they think just because they have so many great fighters and regular bouts that they are better than Strikeforce? CRAZY

    Strikeforce is the best, we have a few excellent fighters like Hendo and Fedor and uh some other fighter too. I'm about o sign Houston Alexander, he's better than anyone one in the UFC and that is a FACT

    Here is another FACT, Fedor used to be unstoppable when he was in Pride, so he does not have to prove anything to anyone! He is the best and I won't debate it or discuss it. Oh and Werdum is the 2nd best fighter of all time, and Overeem is the 3rd.

  4. T.R., I've got news for you…Dos Santos is better than Frank Mir. Brock is 4-1 and has only won 1 of two fights he had against Mir. So if you want to critisize Werdum for losing to Dos Santos, just realize that he has a lot more wins against quality opponents than Lesnar does.If the UFC were all about putting the best fights together, they would have Dos Santos and Cain fighting for the belt (Don't get me wrong though, I think Carwin is good too).

    And Afraidor? Just admit it…you are a relative of Dana White's. I have never heard somebody so absolutely, and undeniabley sure that everything out of Dana's mouth is actually true. Give me a call becasue I've got some sweet real estate in Chernobyl to sell to you. Don't be so mad at Fedor for the deal with the UFC not getting done. All Dana had to do was check his ego at the door before he sat down at the bargaining table (believe me, I know this cuts you to the core to hear). Do you even know the story behind what happened? The shear fact that you think Fedor is afraid of fighting a guy who is 4 – 1 after being undefeated for the last 12 years is amusing, but you embarrass yourself by exposing your lack of common sense.

  5. Scott Coker says:

    That's what I've been telling these idiots Dave!!!! THANK YOU

    Dave is right, Fedor is not hiding in Strikeforce, he's fighting the best talent in the world, everyone in UFC sucks, none of them are a match for Werdum or Overeem. Pound for pound the best fighters in the world are Fedor then Werdum, then Overeem then Houston Alexander. Those guys are hiding in UFC!!!!!!!

    Me and Dave are the only smort people here!!!!

  6. Pretty funny 'Scott Coker'. Nobody says that Strkeforce has the best talent in the world – not even the real Scott Coker. Just another post that proves what MMA Weekly said – 80% of MMA fans watch the UFC exclusively – so it is no wonder why so many of you are so passionate about something you know little about. Just because they aren't in your video game, doesn't mean that they aren't amongst the world's best.

  7. Scott Coker says:

    Dave, you are a Dana Nut Hugger too, Strikeforce is the best! It has the best HW's in all the world. The UFC HW's are hiding there from the best. Stop watching UFC and start watching my Strikeforce, home of all the best fighters.

    And don't listen to Dave, he's just another UFC lover, he probably has a poster of a shirtless Dana White in his bathroom!

  8. kimuraking83 says:

    Strikeforce is the home of the guys who can't make it in the ufc. Suprised hendo left but not really after his loss to shields. Strikeforce will never be big they just don't have all the talent of the ufc. Fedor I just can't explain. There not enuough competition for him

  9. Scott Coker says:

    Oh you are so wrong! Strikeforce has all the best fighters. The top 40 in the world are all in Strikeforce, name one good fighter in the UFC and me and Dave will name 25 better fighters in Strikeforce. It's too easy…

  10. O yeah and Werdum also lost to arloski when they were both in the ufc. I'm not saying he's a bad fighter. I'm just saying that there is no way that this fight is the most important heavy weight fight that's coming up.

    Please Werdum or Overeem put an end to these discussions and destroy the chubby russian.

  11. Businessman says:

    Dave- It is great knowing that not every "MMA Fan" (calling them "MMA Fan" because really they are UFC fans) has lost his/her mind. While the the Brock Lesnar VS Carwin is more intriguing because you have the #2 and #3 ranked fighters going at it, the Fedor fight has to be the most important because Fedor is the #1 ranked fighter. Anytime a #1 competes, that is going to be the most important match because of the implications that being #1 has with a win or loss. And before anyone of you tries to tell me who made Fedor #1, I subscribe to Ultimate MMA and Tap Out and you can goggle or yahoo "MMA Rankings" and mist if not all have Fedor as #1. Does anyone think that your meaningless points about Fedor not being #1 mean more than appromiately 95% all the publiclications and web sites…oh but wait, according to Dana, they are all paid-off. Because that brillian fuck in one interview says that Strikeforce has no money but in another, that all of the publications are paid off…which is it numbnuts? He, just all of you no life, no mind idiots, is just upset that someone would dare say no to the almighty and powerful UFC….Suck it and Like it!

  12. Scott Coker says:

    YES!!!! Sing it soul brother!!!! Businessman is RIGHT ON!!!

    Fedor is #1 even if he hasn't had a meaningful fight in 4 years!

    The UFC is soooo jealous, it's so obvious! They wish Werdum was back with them after getting booted, and Strikeforce has one Mr. Jake Shields and he ROCKS!!!!!

    Businessman is right, if you have an opinion different than his, then you have no life!!!

    ROCK ON – STRIKEFORCE!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!

    UFC is lame – they have no one!

  13. Scott Coker says:

    AND WE HAVE WOMEN FIGHTERS, which is soooooooo much better than men fighters.

    UFC has no women fighters so they suck! Ha – Dana White is so gay! He's got to get some lady fighters.

    Me, Dave, and Businessman love lady fighters, they are so much better than anyone else WHoooooo! Yes!

    Lady Fighters!

    Strikeforce Rules!

    UFC only has men – how lame!

    Lady Fighters are the only true MMA warriors!!!

    Whoooo Hoooo!

    StrikeForce!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. CobraClutch. says:

    I agree that Lady Fighters are better and more entertaining than men, but they are not as HOT as War Machine is in my Porno collection. His junk is huge! Much bigger that Cyborg's

  15. AFRAIDOR MILLIONERKO says:

    you take that back right now!!! NO ONE's junk is as big as cyborg's…we are talking about the manster with the blonde predator wig, right?…oh, and as far as more important matches go…lets compare the ppv gates of july 3rd to all the people rushing out to get showtime for next weekend….and please do some serious spell check the next time you go on a rant about anyone else and their simple minds or or lack of knowledge.

Speak Your Mind
