There’s a new Fedor interview out, and like most Fedor interviews it practically shines with the exuberance this jolly Russian puts off. I often say that Fedor’s demeanor reminds me of Jim Carey back in his standup days … so wacky and physically emotive. Oh wait, no that’s not Fedor at all. That’s Anti-Fedor, who lives in reverse land. This interview shows off just how bland and boring Fedor is:
correspondent: Do you have dreams that yet to come true?
FE: I do, I want to take a break from the ongoing training process…and go to a beach where it is warm and you can see fish in water like in an auqarium.
correspondent: What kind of rest do you prefer? Is it more of an acitve kind or is it the kind where you get to jsut lie down and get some suntan?
FE: I prefer the active type of rest, I enjoy swimming very much, anything but not just lieing down.
correspondent: How is building of your new house coming along?
FE: it is not finished yet.
Fucking goddamn. This guy needs to get out and have some fun or something. There was one bit of interesting information in all of that soul sucking monotony, and that was the date of the first M-1 show:
correspondent: Do you know where the first fight is taking place? and who you are going to fight in the ring?
FE: The first fight will take place in USA Chicago on the 15 of February. The opponent is not known as for now, but we are in the process of negotioation with a number of fighters.
No word yet on if this semi-official announcement has put the Eye of Mordor (also known as the UFC’s crack team of lawyer assassins) onto this event. Word has it that Chicago’s MMA legislation doesn’t come into effect until the middle of 2008. Would it be considered ‘tinfoil hat’ to think the UFC could try to mess with M-1’s debut event by pushing for the date to be moved up?
