New Interview With Fedor Emelianenko (Long but a good read)
(fightline.com)
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.

Believe It Or Not! Butterbean Wants Kimbo
(cagepotato.com)
They don’t want to fight me, I hit too hard! Kimbo doesn’t want to fight anybody that can knock him out and I’m the man that can do it. Kimbo doesn’t want to fight anybody that can hit and I can definitely hit.” Butterbean also says he can take Kimbo’s punches. Sadly, this is a fight that could actually happen and no one — real MMAers, at least — wants to see it. Place your bets now: does Butterbean last longer than Tank Abbott did?

Sergio Gomez – The Price of Glory
(wec.tv)
With three brothers and six sisters, you can bet that WEC lightweight contender Sergio Gomez learned how to fight from an early age. Luckily for him, those early battles for the bathroom in the morning or for the last piece of cake on holidays have paid off to the tune of seven wins in eight pro MMA fights. But despite his success, his only defeat - to Marcus Hicks last May - still haunts the 25-year old. “That is the most painful way to lose a fight,” said Gomez, who seemed to have things under control against Hicks before getting submitted by a guillotine choke in the second round. “Anybody who saw that fight knows I was winning the entire time. I just got caught in something I wasn’t prepared for.”

George Sotiropoulos – A Man on a Mission

As a child growing up in Geelong, the second largest city in the state of Victoria, Australia’s George Sotiropoulos probably never imagined that he would be making his home in Long Island, New York a couple of decades later. But even though he hasn’t adopted the famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) accent, the welterweight prospect is adjusting well to life in the land of the New York Islanders, Billy Joel, and Amy Fisher.
