Team Fedor Emelianenko: 'Brock Lesnar is a Pure Product of the UFC'

 

news_eng_142_4_3.jpg

 

After hearing the entire MMA world come down on Fedor Emelianenko after his upset loss to Fabricio Werdum, it's now M-l Global figurehead Vadim Finkelchtein's turn to fling insults at the man most believed had surpassed his golden boy in the heavyweight hierarchy. If critics thought Emelianenko's credentials were questionable because he's never called the Octagon home, then Vadim professes Brock Lesnar is straight up fugazy after getting annihilated by Cain Velasquez last weekend at UFC 121.

 

"I have long said that Lesnar is more of a product of UFC's PR rather than a serious fighter and that fight clearly confirmed it," Finkelchtein told AllBox.com (translated by Yahoo!). "I do not want to say that Lesnar is a nobody, but he has very little experience.

 

"What does he have, six fights in MMA? He's a pure product of the UFC, who met a real fighter and he lost."

 

While Fedor's outspoken manager was quick to diss the former WWE superstar's resume, he also didn't hesitate to give the newly minted king props on his overall skills.

 

"In my opinion, he is a very good fighter. Capable and strong," Finkelchtein said of Velasquez. "The UFC can now present him as the best in the world, and it is certainly debatable, but he's really a fighter. Not a product of PR."

 

Whatever is going on UFC-side shouldn't be of concern to Finkelchtein, particularly since they haven't been able to iron out a contract extension with Strikeforce. Emelianenko has one fight remaining on his current deal with the San Jose, California based promotion. Both parties - as well as Showtime - have been negotiating for several months to no avail.

Two weeks ago. Team Fedor claimed they would move forward with or without a new agreement in place. To the surprise of nobody, the soft deadline came and went and Emelianenko's impending free agency status is still in limbo. Either way, don't expect to see the world's former/current top heavyweight inside an Octagon anytime soon.

 

"Now we are in active negotiations with Showtime on a contract extension, and perhaps we will renew it, but the UFC does not offer such opportunities and imposes its monopoly conditions," Vaidim added. "They believe that everyone should be in the UFC.

 

"We would love to fight with Lesnar, and Velasquez and all, but why should we give up all these undertakings, all the years spent on Fedor's development will go to them? Fedor did not grow in the UFC, right? So why should he go to the UFC?"

 

So what do you guys think? Do you agree with Fedor's Manager? ....discuss

How exactly is Brock a product of hype when he fought Cain' date=' Carwin, Mir X 2, Couture and Herring in his first 6 fights when Fedor has been hand picking fights for almost his enitire career which is padded with cans?

 

Does not compute.[/b']

 

I guess he is saying that cause Brock got a title shot after being 1-1 in the UFC and that is was obvious Brock was marketed as the new breed of Heavyweight fighters. He is over looking that after Brock's loss to Mir he defeated his next 4 opponents (including a rematch with Mir) fair and square.

Fedor fights, Bork runs & goes turtle-up < big difference :P

 

Kim = can

Herring = can

Mir = (t)ko'd by Freeman, Cruz, & Vera

Couture = 16-8 lhw, 15 month layoff = bogus title

Carwin = no viable resume, destroyed Bork in the 1st rd & gassed as we knew he would

In Fedor's first 7 fights he had a cut loss and he got destroyed by Arona, a LHW, who got robbed of a decision. And he didn't even fight anyone mentionable.

Well The guys that Brock fought were more well known than Fedor's first 7 fights. Fedor started MMA in 2000. But it dosent mean the guys that Fedor fought were not good fighters
It's really like comparing the NBA to a highschool basketball team from the 1950's if you want to be real about it.

I dont see how Fedor's opponents have anything to do with his ability as a fighter. All the guys he faced were in their prime at the time.

Really? Coleman? Randleman? Arlovski? Sylvia?

 

You've been duped if you believe any of those guys were in their prime when Fedor fought them.

Anyone who wants to can look through Fedor's record and see how it has been handpicked with cans, middleweights, gatekeepers, LHWs, freakshows, and past their prime fighters.

You can say what you want about Fedor being more accomplished than Cain, but so was Nog and Cain wrecked him, just like he would do to Fedor.

... you're not very mma smart, are you ?

Emelianenko humiliated prime-Rodrigo on the mat in the 1st fight & did the same standing

in the 2nd match ...

 

... you really expect to be taken seriously when you compare Nogueira now to then ?

absurd cretinism on your part dingus .. :rolleyes:

Why do any of these guys have to go anywhere other than where they are currently fighting if they are comfortable there?...If Fedor really thought the UFC was that big of a deal then he would have already went there. Obviously he doesn't' date=' and we should leave it at that.[/quote']

Being accomplished, and still being able to implement your skill in the ring are two different things.

I would actually watch several of those fights you just named. But the man knows where he is most comfotable and if it's Strikeforce, then it's Strikeforce. There's more high profile names than just Fedor who don't care for the UFC...Mayhem, Aoki, Mousasi, etc. why doesn't anyone ever ***** about them not being there?

reality = most of the pro-crap you hear about Lesnar comes from the WWE crossover fans,

 

Aoki fans are unaware that the WWE exists .. ;)

Yes. 100%

 

But people like SCO have been brainwashed to think that UFC is superior in all ways and every other promotion is weak and doesn't matter.
