Fedor Emelianenko recently sat down for a very candid interview with Sport Express.ru. Fightline.com was able to obtain a wonderful translation of the article which appeared on the Sherdog forums. Enjoy.
The Best Fighter in the world in Chuck Norris version. (They mean Chuck Norris here as an org, like UFC. Doesn't make much sense in English, I know; but they're trying to make a joke in Russian).

We missed our Tula train - so Fedor Emelianenko had to wait for us near the Kursk station entrance. He was wearing worn out jeans and a funny hat - nobody recognized him. Legend of legends. One of the most mystical personalities in the sports world: in Mixed Martial Arts, Emelianenko, the first Russian world champion, doesn't know defeat. And each fight, according to rumors, adds half a million dollars to his bank account.

Is sense of fear familiar to you?

Fedor: Like every normal person I'm afraid to lose the ones close to me. I don't have any other fears.

.....

I don't have any other fears.

....

LONG LIVE THE CYBORG!

I wonder what Fedor is really like when hes with Family, Friends. He seems like a very good, humble guy from what ive seen in videos, but it seems like hes hiding something. I think he is just as Crazy as Aleks, just he knows how to hide it

I think he knows something about the government, or the Russian Mafia.

Power, wisdom, and courage taken directly from his opponents heart

(I believe there may also be a mild sedative in there)
