Fedor Emelianenko: "I Still Have Gaps in My Techniques, Skills... We're All Human"

Quote:
"I still have some gaps in my techniques, in my skills, and that’s why my trainers press me hard to work hard and improve. In spite of the fact that they try to work me hard and make my game perfect, I still, in some places, I look a little bit clumsy."

"I am the way that I am, but I always remember that the harder a person gets, the more it hurts to fall down. That’s why I think about all the results (that come from) what I do in a calm way. Also, I try to treat all people the same way. We’re all human beings, with two arms, two legs and all of us are equal in front of God."

Fedor is the man.

I'm sure he'll look much better in his next fight.

Yea, the reason i like fedor so much is because he's so humble. How can you dislike this man? All the years i've watched him, i've never heard him say a mean thing about anyone.

Good read. I'm glad he learned something from a win and not a loss, though would've been horrible.

Hehehe That's pretty funny, I would too

I wonder if he means little gaps, or big things, the way he fights is pretty different than most, he doesn't jab, no double leg takedowns etc.

That is one of the marks of a great fighter; acknowledging that there is always room for improvement.

The greats in all sports critque themselves harder then anybody else does, that's how you always keep pushing to get better and one of the things i respect the most from fighters coming off a big win acknowledging some areas to improve (one of the reasons i really live Cain). Props to Fedor, there is a reason he has been at the top for so long.
