What you don't seem to understand is that UFC is not MMA.
What! did you not understand my post or are you just throwing this in there to try and sound smart. what in my statement that you quoted was I even talking about the ufc?
Fedor IS doing MMA still- he's just doing it with organizations that WONT force him give up Sambo.
again not even close to what I was referring to at all even though the competition that has been put in font of fedor for years is suspect except for big tim.
Open up your eyes, there is a whole world out there that doesn't think MMA revolves around the UFC and america.
hmmm...my eyes are pretty open but yours seam to only see what you want to see.
the ufc is maybe 5% of mma and martial arts that I watch and are into on a regular basis. and I unlike most did not even start with ufc for mma.
Just because fedor is not willing to give up Sambo for the UFC doesn't mean MMA is not his career.
again not what I was talking about and I never mentioned the ufc at all you did. maybe it is you that is obsessed with the ufc and not me
Also, as has been said many times already, that is a translation we are reading- you don't know what nuances are being lost there, he might not really mean exactly what english-speakers mean when they say hobby, there may not be an english equivalent word for what he means. keep that in mind.
first intelligent thing in your post to bad another member already posted it. but sense we are on that subject I really do hope that is the case for I am a big fedor fan and the statement as I perceived it is unlike him and is making me look at him in a little bit different light
"My opponent was European champion in combat sambo. But for me, sambo is a hobby." now you dont think the way that is stated people could take it that fedor is taking away from the guy that beat him. maybe fedor is a sore loser who are we to know the man never loses. Maybe this is a new side that we have been hidden from.
