Asking the fans their opinions on Fedor Emelianenko


The GOAT. The King. The Boss. These are all names that people use to describe Fedor Emelianenko. It’s not just in this video that fans say it, but it’s also popular opinion amongst most MMA fans. Bellator did a nice little experiment sending their man Andy Nesbitt out there asking fans for their opinions on Fedor Emelianenko. While it was just for fun, you still grasp that people understand Fedor’s legacy.

While many new fans are so busy screaming Conor McGregor’s name, they have missed out on the history that Fedor has created. Not only is he a pioneer but his career numbers have held up over time.

The video goes off the rails a bit when fans are asked how long they’d last in a fight with Fedor. Anything longer than, “However long it took him to reach me.” is an unacceptable answer.

If we’re being honest, the second Fedor came close to any of us, that would be our ass.

RQMS Ep 26: “Lord Fedor”. Also Anastasia’s unconventional training


It’s time for another Real Quick Podcast in your life! Mike Swick and Marc Bogutzki are really pumped up in this episode because things are going very well at AKA Thailand. Right now, Anastasia Yankova is in her fight camp and the guys focus a lot on her and her unconventional training in this episode.

Also, like the title states, Fedor is a big focus on the show. Fedor showed-out this past weekend with his stunning knockout win over Frank Mir at Bellator 198. Being that Fedor is one of Swick’s favorite fighters, Swick is very impassioned when talking about him.

Of course, both Mike and Marc have personal stories upon stories to keep you laughing throughout. Episode 26 is another winner, so check it out.

Israeli Prime Minister showing them hands to Bellator fighters


While in Jerusalem for Bellator 188, Bellator fighters and representatives did some meeting and greeting. The most impressive meeting was with Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

On hand to meet the Prime Minister at the Jerusalem Parliament were MMA icons Fedor Emelianenko and Royce Gracie. Also in attendance were main and co-main event fighters, Noad Lahat and Haim Gozali; Both of whom are Israeli. So what do you do when you meet up with Israel’s head honcho? I guess you put some MMA gloves on him and watch out for haymakers.

At 68 years old he looks like he still has some speed in those fists. Three months sprawl training and I see him vs Ken Shamrock at Bellator 200. Book it!
