FEDORS GOING TO MAGIC MOUNTAIN ,PLUS GREAT INTERVIEW POST FIGHT.
Fedor Emelianenko put on one of the most impressive showings in mixed martial arts history Saturday night, dominating Tim Sylvia with a submission in the first minute of the fight. So what's he going to do next? He's going to Magic Mountain:
"With us came a lot of Russian fans, my friends and supporters, we're just going to kick back, have a good time and celebrate our victory," Fedor said through his translator. "And tomorrow, we want to go to the big roller coasters at Magic Mountain."
I guess MMA hasn't reached the point where fighters get to say "I'm going to Disney World" after a big win.
Fedor also discussed his strategy against Sylvia, looked baffled when asked how he would fight against himself, and said of possible future opponent Randy Couture, "Randy's a fighter with a lot of strengths, but I see a couple weaknesses as well."
