"He's obviously got unbelievable potential, but he had some distractions getting ready for this fight. The movie. The commercials. If Fedor wants to keep winning, and winning well, he needs to train professionally. Right now he won with his old tricks.

"The fact that Fedor won, don't get me wrong, I'm very happy about. But he won this fight because of the training before this fight. The experience he had before this fight. The trainers did everything we could to get him ready. But for title fights, we can't train the way we trained for this one."

Somehow I find this hard to believe. I think that Vladimir is just saying this to make AA's loss hurt more. Or to get back at Roach.

I thought he lost his Sambo match because he was dedicated to his training for this fight. Not sure what to make of this...perhaps just talk, I suppose.

Yeah that was their reasoning for his Sambo loss was he was purely focused on MMA training. I don't buy in to this at all, I think they are just either trying to get back for the smack talk or trying to give a reason why Fedor looked flat till he got the KO. Don't get me wrong Fedor is a great fighter maybe the best ever but I think some of the people around him are dirty and using him to get what they want. I don't think for a min Fedor would say he was under trained for this fight and I get sick of people making excuses for fighters. He won the fight so does it matter if he over trained or under trained.

I thought their reasoning was he was filming that movie.

What Fedor said is Sambo is just his hobby and he only really focuses on MMA training.

I also remember fedor canceling media n press conferences so he could devote his full attention to AA so this makes no sense. Fighters r going to have to get use to the press being there the bigger mma gets. all the other top athletes from other sports have been dealing with the press/media their whole careers on a much higher level and when considered to be the best as fedor is then ppl want in to ur lifestyle.
