Back in Russia "FEDOR SPEAKS"

Quote:
"I rushed to declare my retirement out of frustration. I will fight more. Possibly, I will return to the [Strikeforce] heavyweight Grand Prix," Fedor told LifeSports.ru (translation via Cage Potato). "I am confident that I am capable of having a few more fights. I didnít make any analysis yet on why I lost. I need to recover. I canít see very well yet."

Fedor's coaches downplayed the loss to Silva.

"Fedor is quite able to return to the tournament," Emelianenkoís striking coach, Alexander Michkov explained. "Everybody stumbles. This is not as terrible as everyone is making it out to be."

His Sambo coach Vladimir Voronov said Fedor is more motivated now than ever.

"He has a hematoma, but it will go. Itís very good that Fedor still has his fighting spirit, he is ready to break everyone now," Voronov said. "Most importantly for him is not to have any psychological pressure. The loss will make him train with triple the effort."
Welllll i know its not fair for Fedor to come back and makes it a joke of a tournament. But i do like Fedor and dont care for the rest of the "Fill ins" so GO FEDOR.!! WIN THIS TOURNAMENT THE CHEATING WAY!!

He needs new training camp, fresh ideas, more focus and concentration. But first of all, he must admit that those problems exist, otherwise, he'll be beaten badly again. Fedor hasn't been moving in the right direction for a while. It's not about training longer, it's all about training better, more efficiently and effectively.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Seriously, should Fedor win the tournament somehow after getting dominated in the 1st round, i'm completely done with Strikeforce.

Thats kind of silly. You would stop watching them because a fighter wins a tournament?? Strikeforce is pretty much a joke in many ways. But they do put on good fights so no harm done. They dont try to be anything they arnt, proof is there in letting Fedor possibly return in a tournament he lost. But ask yourself this. Do you like watching Fedor fight?? or would you rather watch reems Brother fight?? They are giving us the chance to watch Fedor again. No matter how many times he loses i will always get excited for a Fedor. So thank you StrikeForce for making yourself look like clowns for the sake of giving us the fights we want. I salute you...

Yes, i enjoy watching Fedor fight but not under these circumstances. SF just does sume borderline ridiculous stuff sometimes. Giving Rogers a title fight while his coming off a KO loss etc. Imagine Fedor winning the tournament eventually, when he got dominated and beaten down in the 1st round?

I personally no longer believe that Fedor can beat Overeem anyway, so if he somehow gets himself in the tournament again, it won't be pretty. Overeem, Kharitonov, Barnett with his A-game and Silva are all very capable to beat current Fedor. He is more beatable than he ever was. Werdum has a solid chance to get him on the ground again and defeat him there. My point is, Fedor better stay away from the tournament and consider doing what I mentioned above, otherwise few more stoppages and he will become Andrei Arlovski with 0-4, washed up "has been" champion with brain damage not far from being called just a punching bag of modern MMA. The aura of mysterious invincibility is gone, trying to do the same thing and expect the different result will only lead to more misery.

1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Didn't Coker say his looking to book him against the loser of Reem-Werdum anyhow? I'm sure he'll go back to his winning ways against Werdum in their rematch.

would be funny if winner of Werdum/Overeem couldnt continue so Fedor hops in and gets smashed by BigFoot again.

That would be horrible but the reaction from M1 should be funny.
