i think he means it's his hobby because it is not his main focus which is true. Sambo is not his main thing but that doesnt mean he doesnt care about it

For what other reason did you think he does it? He loves competing in sambo, and why would he stop doing it? Because of a lucrative contract? Not everything is in money.

The claims I was referring to cited 'national pride'.

As far as I remember there were other issues except Sambo - Money, shitty contract terms, his team-members and other. Correct me if im wrong

Not sure about 'national pride', did he ever said something like that or was it an assumption? I know for sure that the nation is not proud - not many people care about Sambo and even less know about Fedor in Russia.

I think what he meant there, is that he did not tear his ass training for this competition as he would for MMA bout - because it's not super important to him.

So he competes just because it's the national martial art in his country? I'm not bying that, that would be like me practicing real aikido just because Ljuba Vracarevic said it's serbian national martial art(just an aikido rippoff as far as I know).
I think he genuinely loves that sport and loves to compete in it. Plus we don't know what else was in the contract that bothered Fedor.

He's his countries national Sambo hero, most of his renown in Russia is from Sambo competition, not MMA.

Lets not forget the clauses of the UFC contract that he found to be less than appealing.

this is fedor making excuses. I am a fedor fan but Sambo is mor ethen a hobby to him and through his interviews and through many things I have read and researched about fedor Sambo was number one mma was number 2. This statement made by fedor is almost trying to take away from the other guy that beat him saying eh its just a hobby.

to the guy that said he would not quit his hobby for a job. what if your new job paid a you a million dollars to quit your hobby and that is just for starters.

I think it's important to keep in mind that there may be translation issues here, particularly with "hobby".
