Notably quiet and reserved, it’s rare that Emelianenko really elaborates about his fights, whether he wins or loses.

“Fedor’s mentioned to me after his last three fights that he could have won, but that he felt something went wrong at a certain moment in the fight,” said Finkelstein, “but he felt like he could’ve totally won the fights.”

Another subject Emelianenko won’t broach is his family life. I’ve asked him about it in the past and he’s always politely declined my questions. Emelianenko’s also the type of fighter who doesn’t make excuses for his losses, but Finkelstein filled me in on the drama that followed the Russian fighter to America last July

“Prior to his last fight (against Henderson), Fedor’s wife was giving birth right as he was flying over,” said Finkelstein. “He actually found out about the birth of his (third) daughter as he made a connecting flight in Germany on his way to Chicago. There were some medical complications with the birth and he was extremely worried. It was a difficult time and there was a lot of psychological pressure, so maybe he wasn’t all there in his mind.”

Yeah, it's called getting your face bashed in, well at least in his last 2 fights, Werdum fight was just a mental fart, or he just didn't believe Werdum's BJJ was that good.

I'm sure he's got some crap going on in his life. Everyone does. Its also quite likely that these things affect his performances. But keep it to yourself.

Fedor's manager just sounds like he his making excuses. What Fedor needs is results, not reasons.

As a Fedor fan, it is difficult to bet against him but I think Monson has the tools and the size to administer the 4th consecutive loss.

But as crooked as M-1 is, I would not be surprise if something weird happened in the fight.

maybe on the ground but not so much on the feet. Monsons got t-rex arms and IMO the only way he's gonna take this is by getting it to the ground

That's what I'm thinking will happen.

No way. Fedor is way better on the feet, faster, and probably equally as good on the ground.

This is going to be a cake walk for the Last Emperor.

You are not following the conversation.
-I said Monson has the tools and size to win.
-Prophecy said, in his opinion, Monson's best chances is taking it to the ground.
-I said yes, I agree and I think that is what's going to happen >>>referencing that Monson will take Fedor to the ground.

This in a way (with emphasis) reminds me of Dana talking about Forrest getting ready to have a kid right before the Shogun rematch.

Monson has an excellent top game and pretty good wrestling for a primarily BJJ guy. Fedor has to knock him out and he's not known for being finished, just ask prime Chuck Liddell.

No it did not. It came from left field from the other side of the moon.

Recap in short:
Person A - Monson could beat Fedor.
Person B - Monson could win if he takes it to the ground.
Person A - That is what I meant.
Person C - No way man! Chuck Liddell is the best fighter in the world!

That was a bit of exaggeration but I think you get the point.
