Fedor Emelianenko Highlights
Emelianenko has stated his driving force for winning fights was: “Years ago we hardly had anything to eat. Now I earn more money and I see every opponent as a man that tries to put me back to that poorer period. That man has to be eliminated.” and about his state of mind before a fight: “When I walk into a fight, I’m trying not to think about anything; collect myself and concentrate. And going into a fight, I don’t feel any emotions, neither anger nor compassion. I don’t emotionalize. I’m going into a fight with a clear mind… During the fight, my senses dim and basically I don’t feel any pain.” To learn more about Fedor visit his Wikipedia page.
