Thumbs up FEDOR: "I definitely learned a lot from Couture."

A good article from espn...
Quote:

Alluding to his stone-cold demeanor during a fight, which has prompted some diehards to label Emelianenko a cyborg, the PRIDE champion said: "This is a sport. This is not the place to go and be aggressive. I go out there and do what I trained for."

"The idea is to prepare your body, both physically and mentally, like you already fought, so when you go out there your body is already warmed up and your mind is already warmed up," he continued. "So you're ready for it. You just do what you're trained to do. You're not going there and building from the start. You go out there and you're already in the middle of the fight. This is my way of thinking."

It's been quite a while since the Ukrainian-born star was forced to rely on his seconds, and as a pro he said the onus is on him to make adjustments during a bout.

Taking a cue from one of the most professional fighters in the history of the sport, Emelianenko is quite an admirer of current UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture, who returned from a year retirement to defeat Tim Sylvia this March.

"When I was in the service in the army I used to watch Randy's fights," Fedor remembered. "I liked everything, especially the way he conducted himself in the ring.
"I definitely learned a lot from Couture."

Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...

Fedor does do great interviews. He doesn't have the charisma of a guy like Tito, but it doesn't matter because he understands the sport so well.

It's really cool to see that he looks up to Randy, because it really does give you an idea of how great a guy he is and it makes him seem more human. Still, in the ring Fedor is the greatest. I'm just waiting for his next fight.
