Uh...yeah, it's weird but funny. From Weekly's blog:
The MMA media can ask some pretty darn funny questions at times, and not intentionally.
Of many zingers on Monday's Strikeforce conference call for Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers, a reporter asked Fedor whether he killed a bear with a fork and a knife prior to a fight, as his brother Alexsander claimed to do.
Tanya, Fedor's Russian translator, attempted to relay the question while stifling her own laughter.
For any other fighter, it would have been a cue for silence and/or mockery. But true to form, Fedor kept his rebuttal emotionless.
"Whatever people say, or whoever says anything, I haven't met the bear personally," he said. "I've had an opportunity to see only in the zoo, but from what I know, the bear is a very strong animal and it's really very difficult for a human being to cope with him with some simple effort."
Thanks for clearing that up, Fedor. On to CBS.
A fork & knife? Sounds like that bear was only as big as my typical meal at Burger King.
