random4life1996 Posted July 27, 2010 Report Share Posted July 27, 2010 EMELIANENKO BELIEVES SAMBO IS SUPERIOR TO JIU JITSU Sambo is great. Jiu-jitsu is nothing special. We went over several jiu-jitsu guys like that before. I lost because of what happened. My loss was caused by my personal mistake in the cage? I lost my head. Wanted to finish it all as soon as possible? As far as the rumors about my last fight being set up... I was asked about it many times already. I will never go against my conscience and never betray my country like that. Money doesn't matter that much to me that I could lie to people. Since I lost to Werdum, it was meant to be. And I'm thankful to God it happened that way." The man many MMA Pundits considered the number one pound for pound fighter in the world, Fedor Emelianenko, speaks out about his recent loss to Jiu Jitsu ace, Fabricio Werdum. In this interview with gazeta.ru he explains that he does not feel Jiu Jitsu is superior to his combat style, Russian Sambo. While it is evident that the Brazilian martial art bettered the Russian style in June, Fedor had an excellent track record up to that point in negating the highest level of Jiu Jitsu in all of his previous bouts. The Russian Sambo Master gives little credit here to his opponent and instead blames the cause of his first defeat in 10 years on his inability to stay focused and execute properly. ?The Last Emperor? will be back soon and one can only guess his his winning ways will get back on track, but will it ever be enough to regain his top seat in the MMA World Wide Rankings now that he has fallen to a UFC wash-out?
