So the big news over the weekend was that Fedor released a statement saying he wanted to fight on NYE in Japan. The statement was full of really gay engrish rhetoric like “Your wishes come true when you ask for it come New Year’s Eve” and left most people in America scratching their heads. But hey … this wasn’t really for us. This release was for the Japanese.
Open letters saying you want to fight generally don’t work that well, even if you are one of the top fighters on the planet. But in Japan, you’d be surprised at how they get sucked into this kind of shit. I’ll bet you a couple million yen ($4 worth to be exact) everyone in the Japanese fight industry is lactating over Fedor’s message. At this exact moment red faced execs are bowing at eachother and shouting for a “GREAT DECLARATION FOR FEDOR’S MAGIC WISH”.
Zach Arnold says the old Dream Stage guys are trying to put together a show by backpacking it in the same arena as their super retardo HUSTLE NYE show. So that’s one possibility, I suppose. K1 is always a possibility although rumor has it Fedor’s ‘wish’ comes with a pricetag that makes it financially unaffordable. Apparently K1 only likes to burn one huge pile of cash a year, and this year that pile was the US Dynamite show.
If this was anyone other than the Japanese, I would say there’s no way in fucking hell Fedor will be fighting on NYE. But the Japanese are weirdos, and god knows if there’s honor or spirits or destiny involved, anything is possible.
