Fedor Emelianenko Responds to Comments Made by UFC President Dana White

After a lot of trash talking from Dana White to Fedor Emelianenko in the past, Fedor decided to answer back.   

Earlier this week, we wrote an article mentioning how White had said a few negative things about Fedor when he stated "Fedor is a farce. He [just fought] ‘Long Duck
Dong’ (referring to Hong Man Choi at the Yarennoka event)…we’ll just call him that. It’s a joke. This guy hasn’t beat
anybody since 2005 and you know who was the last guy he beat in 2005? Mirko Cro
Cop who just lost to two guy’s that are nobody’s…you know."

Fedor Emelianenko decided to respond to those statements with this:

Numerous times I have read mister White’s statements on Internet
concerning myself. In my opinion, allowing yourself to say those things
is not a sign of a gentleman or a grown man at all! If he candidly
wants to prove himself right then let my fight with Randy happen or let
me face the reigning UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. In the
future I wouldn’t want to hear those unfounded statements in my address
ever again.

My last fight in Japan proved that I’m ready to fight
anybody with any size advantage, skill set or experience. I have fought
and still wish to fight the best athletes. The Randy fight is my goal
number one right now, he’s a great fighter and this is a very
unfortunate situation when too strict and one-sided UFC contracts don’t
let this fight happen.

The whole world is eager to see me fight
your champions instead of listening to your press-conferences. I’m
signed with M-1 Global and this promotion is ready to organize such
fights under our banner or in co-promoted events.

    Fedor is the undefeated heavyweight MMA champion-he can and will take on anyone and beat anyone in UFC heavyweight division. He can do it all- grappling and striking and he’s proven himself to be the best by beating the best over many years. UFC should organize a match between Fedor and UFC’s best fighter.

    Fedor is the champ! but he needs to fight RAndy. Pure and Simple. Dana white should have done this for the fans. His position in creating a better UFC and MMA has made him big headed and more of an A** Hole .. he doesn’t budge. that costed him Randy! This is weak!
