In an interview with Bas Rutten a few years ago, Fedor said he doesn’t even watch MMA. Breaking News: He doesn’t need to. When you have the power to put god in an arm bar and make him tapout, watching other fighters try out the sport that you perfected is like Optimus Prime watching two microwaves battle it out for supremacy over the kitchen appliances. Fedor probably doesn’t even watch anything — the dude observes. It doesn’t matter that he lost two fights in a row, 30 years from now Fedor Emelianenko is going to be known as a giant who lives on top of a hill in Ireland that drinks lava when he’s thirsty and eats explosions for a midnight snack.
In an interview with a Russian news source with a lot of strange, backwards letters, Fedor stated that he will fly out of Russia at the end of this week and will train his stand-up in Holland.
“This Sunday I’ll fly out to Holland to have a two-week training camp. Then, I’ll return back home to Stary Oskol to continue my preparations. I’m going to fight this summer. I still don’t know who will be my opponent, but it’s something currently in works. I didn’t train abroad since 2005. We have a really good relationship with Muay Thai coaches in Holland, so I’m really looking forward to this training camp.”
For all those who elected to skip their 9th grade history class in high school, it’s important to note that Holland and The Netherlands are the same place. If any of you guys plan on stalking Fedor Emelianenko in his voyage to Benelux area, be sure to stay at the CitizenM hotel. The place is unbelievably dope, and there’s a bartender that works there who claims that he can hear earthquakes. Seriously. [Source]
