WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko has a message for Randy Couture following his loss to Brock Lesnar at last Saturday’s UFC 91, keep your chin up.

MMAWeekly.com spoke with Emelianenko via telephone as he finished watching the first round of the fight on a nearby television. The top ranked heavyweight is currently in Thailand, filming an action movie starring Rutger Hauer and Michael Madsen.

“It’s a very interesting fight,” Emelianenko said of the bout’s first round through his interpreter. “So far, it looks like Randy – he’s more active in the ring.”

Asked who the winner of the first round was, he paused.

I think he and Nog rank 1a and 1b. Little different style, but the respect for the other fighters and the sport is still there.

Even though Fedor would beat Brock, a Lesnar vs Fedor fight is more interesting to me than Randy anyway.

And yeah Fedor and Nog = Classiest

Fedor is so damn hard to not like. I don't see how anyone can hate on this guy.

So true, Randy is a legend, Fedor is almost a myth. I doubt you could tell anyone 20 years ago that a fighter would emerge to dominate any man of any size, skill, and strength, a guy that could get dropped on his spine and still almost snap the other guy's arm for a win, a 6 foot tall guy battling 7 foot 3 giants with Lesnar-like hands, they should have a Fedor halloween mask because the dude is like something out of a movie (and it would be one of the only realistic halloween masks EVER because Fedor's expression never changes) and I doubt even more that you could convince someone 20 years ago that this guy who would emerge would be very classy, humble, and quiet.

You cannot have a "Classiest People in MMA" list without Wanderlei

There are alot of classy people in mma, but IMHO Fedor is the classiest, I have never heard him say anything bad, and he is always very quick to say good things about others.

True I guess Randy said some bad things in his day and spanking Tito wasn't very classy. Wanderlei said some harsh stuff towards Rampage and Crocop as well. So yeah Fedor and Nog tied for first!

Nog and Fedor both are just on an entirely different level when it comes to class and sportsmenship.No one even comes close.
