I think his simplicity is more than simply being Russian. I think he is truly a humble man. I believe that he did not join the UFC because he doesn't need or want the money; he just wants to fight to provide for his family; UFC is too flashy for him; he NEVER said he is the best in the world and seems embarrassed when asked about it.

I wish more pro athletes were like Fedor. He is a monster fighter, but a gentleman. He is not all about glorifying himself and doesn't care what people think about him. What a releif it is to see an athlete like this.

Would I LOVE to see him fight in the UFC? Absolutely! Do I respect the guy because he does what he wants and what he thinks is best for him? Yup! Dana thinks that simply because he throws lots of money at someone, that someone has an obligation to join the UFC. I don't think money motivates Fedor and Dana (and many MMA) fans cannot handle that.

I think he is a model athlete and a truly humble man. Very refreshing!
This is an outstanding post and does a great job of describing Fedor. I absolutly cant stand it when people say that Fedor is too scarred to fight in the UFC. People cant think of any reason why they wouldn't accept the money if they were the best so therefore they cant understand why Fedor (being the best) wouldnt accept the UFCs money. They dont understand that there are people in the world who think alot different than they do. Its usually the typical close minded conservative Americans who have this problem btw.

Oh yeah. The thing is, a lot of them have years of education that most Americans and people around the world just don't.

There's the old USSR system again reaping at least some benefit for the rest of the world.

in Pride they always used to say it was out of respect. no need to play intimidation games with a man you respect.
