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

"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.

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.

just wondering why is it that when some posters on here point out these same gaps and say fedor's human like any other fighter, they get typical "fedor hater" or the "u never watched pride" insult thrown at them?

fyp

it's because too many think a differing and less spectatular opinion on a legend is insulting them personally and take it much too serious. If everybody just agreed about every fighter there would be no forum.

Probably because it's so hard to differentiate between intelligent, knowledgeable MMA enthusiasts and LESNAR IS NUMBERRR ONE UFC ROOLZ kinda people. ;)

The biggest hole in Fedor's game IMO (and I'm a pretty big fan/enthusiast) is he never feels out opponents enough or effectively enough.

Watch the Arlovski or the Rogers fight. The first 2 minutes or so before he gets their reach and rhythm is so iffy. If he ever loses in the future before he retires, it's to a dynamic striker in the first two minutes before he catches their rhythm and distance.

Fedor, if you're reading this right now, my king, just know that I have a large yard and a hill and it gets snowy in the winter...so basically move in with me, it'll be just like training in Russia. BTW..... <3

I could think of meaner words than just "bastard" when someone just ktfo your brother. He's the most humble respectful fighting in this sport.
Im the Russian and the things that Fedor said we much meaner than "bastard" (literally it was closer to "fu**ed in the mouth" and "bitch").

Yeah, but, kak pa-ruski?

Fedor looks thinner there. And pissed.
I LOVE that video. What a totally epic build up for the Crocop fight.


Also I always thought he was yelling at his brother in that video. He yells at him earlier for messin' up.


Man Aleks looks different in his fight against Crocop. His standup has improved about a 10000x since then, haha.
