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”
