Can undefeated martial artist Fedor Emelianenko single-handedly knock out the Ultimate Fighting Championship's dominance over the emerging sport? That's the question at the start of an Esquire magazine article all about Fedor.

Article

Thats a very enjoyable article. Unfortunatly I agree with Fedor about Cro Cop. I don't think it happend after they fought though.

It was very well written, although if it were me you'd bet your ass i'd portray Fedor in the best way possible as to not get my head punched clear off my body

good read but i also agree have sligtht problem with his evaluation of crocop

i agree crocop might have been fighting to often and be burned out by that, but not quite sure the fedor loss is the fight that did it. kinda seems to have happened gradually to me

WAR NASAL SURGERY
WAR NEW CROCOP OF OLD (does that make sense?) lol

CC's spirit seemed to leave after the OW GP. He said he was training harder for the Kongo fight than any other fight but his heart hasn't seemed to be there.

C'mon Dana, lets get Fedor.

Well his current behaviour in the ring is something we saw in his fight with Hunt after he fought Fedor. His spark seemed to die out in that fight. Seems like thats whats happening nowadays.
