Fedor without his babysitters?

Originally it was stated that Fedor would be traveling to the US along with his omnipresent management team to meet up with Randy and do some work with Affliction. But it now looks like he might be flying solo on this one, and his handlers have done everything short of pinning instructions to his snowsuit in order to ensure he makes it to his destination. Check out the card Fedor is carrying with him on the flight to Los Angeles:

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Fedor Emelyanenko. I do not speak or read any English.

I arrived on Delta Flight XXX from LAX.

I need to board Delta flight XX arriving at Moscow Russia at 11:00am 21 January.

Can you please lead me to the correct gate for this flight?

I will not be able to make my flight connection without help finding the gate for my next flight. I will need assistance with this.

Many thanks for your help!

Also included in the care package prepared by Fedor’s mom management is a letter of intent from Affliction to get him through customs without any hassles. I especially like the wording, that Fedor is ‘considered’ the best heavyweight in the world.

    Its like when the teacher pinned a letter to your mom on your shirt. WTF.

    Anyone who doesnt know who he is and reads ” considered best heavyweight in the world” will probably laugh, up until the point Fedor slaps the shit out of them.

  • fightfan

    It would of been nice if whoever wasted the time to print this letter up if they would of spelled Fedor’s name correctly.

    It is Emelienenko, right?? It Is definitely NOT Emelyanenko

  • fightlinker

    it’s spelled both ways on his official site

  • Lifer

    i was about to ask if we finally have the correct spelling of this man’s name but i’m not sure we ever will. it’s probably purposeful to stop gypsies from learning his true name and casting spells on him to drain his manhood.


  • Pontus

    Its because of the russian cyrillic alphabet when they “romanize” (is that a word?) his last name. I guess they have a couple of different spellings for it.

  • Chuck

    I’d love to run into Fedor in an airport looking for help. I’d lead him to my car and bring him home to Alaska to make him fight grizzly bears.

  • Ryan

    The real question is, how the hell did you get ahold of this Fightlinker? Who’s schlong did you have to bob? Jesus H., this is a scope if I’ve ever seen one.

    The power of the new community site. People message me with iteasing nfo and I’m able to use my charisma to trick them into sharing everything with me

    those crazy russians should have called me. I would have lead fedor around to his meetings like the little stray puppy he is. what a krAzY russian

    It’s great that Affliction is getting sponsorships for the fighters. Though who actually wears those ridiculously tacky shirts? Affliction’s designs are so emo but yet it’s popular for some reason. To quote Rogan, if I see another one of those Affliction shirts, I’m going to puke.

    “Its because of the russian cyrillic alphabet when they “romanize” (is that a word?) his last name. I guess they have a couple of different spellings for it.”

    This is correct, there is no standard way to translate the russian letters into english letters, thats why you see it done differently every time. Also some letters change sounds in russian depending on where the stress is. O becomes a if unstressed and so on . . .
    Further complicating the matter is the fact that they want it to look as close to the russian word as possible. Fedor looks more like the original while Fyodor sounds more like the original.

    Imho Fyodor is a much better spelling to represent how it actually sounds.

    has anyone seen that pic of Fedor in the sauna?is that a normal thing in Russia or something?don’t people usually sport towels when they r in there.

  • Xavier

    Hahaha, that note is something like a blind spastic would carry. That’s great. M1 can’t afford a full-time translator for Fedor on American trips? What a management team!

    “It is important that I get on the right flight so I can be home to play patty-cake^W Sambo with my tiny friends. Mommy said if I win she will sew me new footy pyjamas. Hooray!”

  • danaunclefesterwhite

    Considering that his management team is most likely exploiting Fedor and getting a big cut from his paydays, they should be sending him a full-time translator with him to the United States. Fedor seems like one of those really nice but naive guys that can easily be stepped on like a door mat (even though he can really kick your ass). I don’t trust Vadim and these other guys.

    lol, I can see the headlines now- Large confused Russian holds airport at bay for hours. Bon Voyage store sales clerk held in a kimura lock for several moments. More details to follow.

  • mmaninja

    Too funny, I just hope some non-english speaking airport worker doesn’t direct him to some other gate flying to Mexico or something. Cause lately, especially in international airports, barely anybody speaks english, I doubt they can read well

  • Swedish guy

    Фёдор Емельяненко is the shit!1!

  • MacDaddy

    “Helloooooo my name Fedor, in my cahntree SAMBO mean something muuch deeferent, a wa-wa-weeee-wa!!!”

  • Slutpuppy

    God, I wish I could see this. I can picture this huge burly Russian fighter wandering around with his arm outstretched holding this note to every passerby and screaming like a deaf person.


  • Jemaleddin

    @Slutpuppy: Dude, he’s only 6 feet tall. Maybe that’s a giant in Japan, but he’s not going to stand out in the U.S. We’ve got midget wrestlers that outweigh him.
