Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by ESPN's Josh Gross.
With all-time heavyweight great Fedor Emelianenko calling it a career -- at least temporarily -- Breen and Gross reflect on “The Last Emperor” and the unique mystique that made him one of MMA’s most fascinating fighters and polarizing figures. The two weigh in on whether or not they expect Emelianenko to fight again, how the Russian’s personality traits informed his career and what sort of run he might have had in the Octagon.
The two also discuss whether or not Emelianenko will continue to be seen as the all-time best MMA heavyweight, as well as their favorite strange, esoteric Emelianenko memories, from his infamous sweater to his penchant for Red Lobster and ice cream cones.
