New Fedor interview: Surprisingly disrespectful

They say that anyone can be gracious when they're winning but when they're losing is when they are truly defined.

It wasn't long ago that Fedor said that BJJ was "nothing special" and now this.

In this interview Fedor seems surprisingly disrespectful and out of touch with reality.

Where does this guy get off saying Werdum and OVEREEM will do everything he can to avoid him after the nonsense he's been pulling with Overeem? Werdum is injured and Fedor doesn't even deserve a rematch. He got subbed in 69 seconds for gods sake. When in history is that deserving of an immediate rematch? Overeem has been calling this guy out since early 2009 and after, waiting, WAITING and WAITING for Fedor after hearing every excuse from steroid accusations to olympic style drug testing and then a week after Overeem announces he's going back to K1 Fedor "calls him out" and then he whines about it on his site? Are you kidding me?

From the recent Q&A on his very own Russian site:
http://efedor.ru/faq/
http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f61/fe...ymore-1367533/

Askar: Will we see the rematch between you and Fabricio Werdum?
Fedor: I would like to rematch, but not everything depends on me. What actually happens, is exactly what I was saying after our fight: Fabricio will do everything to avoid the rematch. Plus, I think that Strikeforce helps him with that...

Marat: Hello, Fedor: I have a question or you: why wouldn't you fight Bigfoot Silva first, and only then fight Alistair? I wish you luck and hope you will fight more like a top fighter.
Fedor: I've already told several times, that nothing depends on my wish. Today Strikeforce can't offer me a serious opponent. Alistair Overeem finds several excuses not to fight me. Other stars have lost in recent fights, that's why the organization doesn't wish to put them against me. Fabricio Werdum had surgery, and is not ready to fight either. Plus, i have only one fight left in this organization.

Since when Fedor talks like that about fighters/orgs?
Not a good sign, if you ask me.

1. Allistair Overeem challenges Fedor
2. M1/Fedor insult him call him a steroid bully
3. Allistair Overeem challenges Fedor
4. M1/Fedor say he needs to take an olympic style drug test
5. Allistair Overeem challenges Fedor
6. M1/Fedor say he hasn't accomplished enough and needs to prove himself
7. Allistair Overeem beats Brett Rogers more impressively that Fedor does and challenges Fedor right after the fight infront of the world
8. M1/Fedor say they they do not fight fight for titles or prizes and are not interested in that fight
9. Allistiar Overeem announces he's going back to K1
10. M1/Fedor challenge him and say he's ducking



http://www.mmafighting.com/2009/10/2...-in-april-201/

Overeem starts campaigning for a bout with Fedor way back in 2009. He says he wants to face Fedor in April 2010.


"I want all of you to write this down," Overeem told reporters after the fight against Thompson. "I want to fight Fedor. Alistair Overeem wants to fight Fedor in April 2010. So write that down."




http://www.fightofthenight.com/news/...or-vs-overeem/

M1 asks that Overeem be olympic style drug tested

“Overeem-Fedor talk will be interesting. M-1 is asking for Olympic style drug testing. Overeem’s camp says no, athletic comm. testing enough.



http://www.5thround.com/24909/alista...want-to-fight/

"Fedor does not want to fight" - Overeem



http://www.lowkick.com/Strikeforce/F...oid-bully-6785

M1 calls Overeem a steroid bully who has nothing to offer Fedor

“Overeem has nothing to offer for Fedor, except being a steroid bully.”



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DILSH...layer_embedded

Video - Overeem was supposed to face Fedor the night he fought Rogers but Fedor ducked him




http://urdirt.com/2010/03/02/vadim-f...yweight-title/

M1 says Overeem not accomplished enough to fight Fedor

“I personally think that Alistair Overeem did not reach the desired level to challenge Fedor. He beat a lot of no-name opponents in Mixed Martial Arts. Overeem defeated Paul Buentello and then disappeared from the United States for more than two year, which is simply ridiculous. He has nothing to offer for Fedor Emelianenko, except being a steroid bully. Also, pay attention that Werdum beat Overeem when they were fighting in Pride, four years ago.“ -Vadim Finklestein M1




http://urdirt.com/2010/03/02/vadim-f...yweight-title/

M1 says Fedor will not fight Overeem because Fedor is above fighting for medals and belts



“We do not fight for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Title. Strikeforce are our partner, and any titles whether it is UFC, Strikeforce, WAMMA, Dream… they are just medals. Fedor is above these things. We are interested in the level of our opponent and his popularity among the audience.”




http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Ove...-Demands-26555

Overeem scoffs at the timing of M1's challenge

Recently defeated legend Fedor Emelianenko has issued a challenge to Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem to face him in either November or December. However, the 30-year-old Dutch striker has already committed himself to this year’s K-1 Grand Prix, which begins on Oct. 2 in Korea and culminates on Dec. 11 in Japan.




http://www.headkicklegend.com/2010/8...rticipating-in

Overeems management made it clear when he was available to fight



"Boon also points out that he made it clear that Alistair was available to fight in the US in April through late September, and finds it funny that Fedor's management wouldn't accept a fight with him until after those dates have passed. Peculiar indeed. A point that needs to be made is that M-1 has demands for Overeem, but what about Barnett who is currently without a license to fight in the US due to PED issues?"





[UPDATE]: Interview could be fake, Middleeasy tweets:

"The interview on MixFight.ru is fake. Fedor never gave an interview and M-1 is using the "interview "as leverage for contract negotiations."

^^^

Mod added this.... So M1 faked a Fedor interview according to the twitter of some MMA site who brings no proof. Middle Easy is the same site that falsely reported M1 was closing their doors too. Their twitter page is not exactly a reliable source. Why would M1 fake a Fedor interview on Fedors own site? And how the hell would Middle Easy know? Sounds to me like some fanboy from Middle Easy is damage controlling for Fedor on twitter.

for most fighters id say a little spark to the fire is a good thing but fedors calm collectiveness has always given him such an edge that i think id agree... not a good sign

I think Werdum could do it again, and i also think Overeem would crush him. I've never been a big fedor fan, and he's apparently becoming kind of a douchebag with his "jiu-jitsu is nothing special..." quote and now this. He's got one fight left use it on Overeem. SF make it happen.

I honestly think Fedor doesn't know what to do right now. Overeem was a very hard fight. Two losses in a row would be devastating to his next contract. Werdum is out for a long time. He gains nothing by beating Silva, but a loss to him would ruin his chances of being considered a top level fighter.

what he does is crush Werdum standing.

Then go crush Overeem on the ground.

Start fighting like a smart top fighter and not just beat everybody at their own game.

Altho i think he could likely beat Werdum via GnP and prob stand with Overeem and catch him.

Just cuz you grow muscles, your heart and will doesnt change, i dont know why ppl think cuz he looks like a tank, he is a tank.

Overeem wilts under pressure, i believe that until proven otherwise. He wont run right over Fedor and when he doesnt, he will lose.

I'm not saying he doesn't have the ability to beat either fighter. It's just a risk. Also the Overeem fight isn't going to happen soon, and neither will Werdum. So if Fedor wants to stay active, he has to fight someone like Bigfoot, where there's no upside. If he wins, which he probably will, then he just lived of to expectations.

I really don't understand this - Fedor lost,well he must be deserving of a title shot! (I know that happened with rogers)

I don't care who you are if you lose like that you have to earn your way back to the top again. If he beats Bigfoot then sure he would deserve a shot a Reem or Werdum (assuming they had fought by then)

If strikeforce wants any legitimacy to their belt they cannot give him a shot till he beats someone else.

Fedor should stop bitching get back in the cage and show us why he deserves a shot, start making some of his own decisions as well.


Reem has been trying to fighting him for years and now he calls this out knowing he can't get this fight.

If I was him I would be begging for a Barnett fight which would put him right back at the top of the pile. (Does Barnett have an opponent yet)

I find myself losing respect for him everytime he or opens his trap - and I used to love the guy.

revisionist Fedor haters history is funny...


Overroids has been trying to fight fedor for "years"??

the guy didnt even fight in MMA for "years".

or North America for "years".

ducked drug testing for "years".

wtf are these stories. the guy was fighting Paul Buentello for christs sake before he fought Rogers.

He was calling out Fedor?? while hiding out in europe doing k1 and fighting every bum in the HW division.


You guys all say Fedor was ducking top competition?? While he was facing AA, Big Timmy, Rogers and Werdum??

O RLY???

all the while Overeem has been facing Buentello, Fujita, James Thompson, Tony Sylvester and Gary Goodridge???

Yea, Fedor should really care about a nobody like Overeem running his gums for years but not even fighting MMA that much and when he does, unranked bums exclusively.

Rogers was a HUGE step up for Overeem, which is sad.

Werdum already beat Overeem and he will beat him again.

btw Werdum > Overeem aswell, and his record proves it. Its littered with wins over ranked competition at HW.
