Everyone off the Fedormobile!

(Fedor back in the simpler, bus-sharing days)

For a 9 hour show, DREAM’s New Years Eve event was surprisingly light on interesting happenings. Bibiano Fernandes won the bantamweight grand prix, Tokoro almost got crippled, and Fedor beat that guy everyone knew he’d beat. Yippity doo! Save yourself a third of a day and just check out all of Grappo’s gifs, they’ll do you right.

As for news coming out of the event, not much on that front either. JMMA is so messed up who knows when or if there’ll be another event. And when/ if it does happen I’m sure it’ll be another tired rehashing of all the same fighters that have been showing up since DREAM.1. There was a little bit of drama that we got to see care of HDNet commentator Michael Schiavello on Twitter:

BTW Fedor is SUCH a DIVA! Other fighters & us sat on bus for about 90 min after show because Fedor apparently needs a bus all to himself! Even Bibi Fernandes and his team were booted off the second bus because “that is Fedor’s bus”, mind you these are like 70 seat tour buses!

seriously, it was just plain RUDE. Fighters want to get to their hotel we ALL HAD TO WAIT & Bibi had to clear off the Fedor bus. If greats like Hoost, JLB, Sefo, Schilt, Hunt, Hug, Aerts etc can all bus share, Fedor can too.

fancy booting Bibi Fernandes & his team off ONE BUS and onto the other more crowded one. Dude just won the B/W GP! #rude

Not to mention sitting there for 90 mins on a bus at 1230am waiting, waiting, waiting… I get the “special treatment” thing but hey, hire a small private van or a limousine, I’v seen that done before. Don’t keep others waiting. sucked that I had to wait but more so guys who had fought their hearts out — Bibi, Banuelos, Saadulaev etc waiting 90 min!

you know as well as I do you are your management. His demand or not it reflects poorly on him.

Yeah, there we go: As always, no one blames Fedor for this but his management team at M-1. Fedor knows not what they do. Fedor is simple, humble man. Only one deserves full bus, and this is God. God deserves all busses. Fedor only train and fight.

    Just be happy they were all spared a Fedor wedgie and GTFO his bus.

    uh…..also mega megu tooled some can, tatsuya kawajiri looked like an absolute monster at 45 (and should probably get a 2nd chance with zuffa) and shinya aoki nearly made his bff choke on his own blood

  • fightlinker

    so mega megu fought a can, kawajiri fought a can, and shinya aoki fought a can. Relatively speaking.

    this story about fedor or his management needing their own bus was debunked a full day before this brilliant article was posted. schiavello has already apologized.

    Fedor did not ask for a bus to himself, it’s all BS. I was there with Bibiano and Mach and I was on the second bus that Schiavello was on. There were two buses that went from the hotel to the arena and back. After the fight, there is a press conference and interviews that all the fighters have to do.

    Fedor was asked to do more interviews than everyone else and so rather than make both buses wait to leave until he was done, they told everyone that was on the bus Fedor was on that they could all get on the other bus if they wanted to leave sooner. The second bus had to wait until Fedor was done with his interviews, it had nothing to do with him wanting the whole bus to himself.

    We ended up waiting forever on the other bus not because of anything to do with Fedor but because we had to wait for one of the staff members from Dream that was wrapping things up. Nobody had to wait because of Fedor and Fedor did not ask for his own bus. The whole story is BS.

    @SchiavelloVOICE Michael Schiavello
    My apologies to Fedor if that’s the case, all I know we were TOLD “that is fedor’s bus only”

    Something got lost in translation and gave birth to a bullshit story. Everybody move on…
