Exclusive: One on One with Fedor

By Loretta Hunt Nov 11, 2009
Fedor Emelianenko says he’s already on the mend following his tense seven-minute melee against Brett Rogers last Saturday.

Squashing rumors of a lengthy layoff, Emelianenko tells Sherdog.com he underwent minor surgery for a dislocated thumb on Tuesday in Los Angeles and that a suspected broken nose has been downgraded to merely a nasty cut.

Viewers can judge the stoic Russian’s status for themselves in this exclusive video shot just hours following his procedure. Joined by M-1 Global CEO Joost Raimond, Emelianenko and promoter discuss the success of co-promotion with Strikeforce, the 6 million viewers that watched Emelianenko’s bout in Russia and UFC President Dana White’s criticism.
