Chuck Liddell: Fedor Emelianenko is overrated

Fedor EmelianenkoProps: The Sun

Quoteworthy:

"I truly believe [Fedor Emelianenko is] overrated. I've heard he picks and chooses some of his fights. You've got to wonder why he chose to fight a guy like Matt Lindland –- who weighs 185lbs! I heard he was negotiating with some other people who were heavyweights who would have been more of a challenge to him and he turned those down. He doesn't have a great shot, he doesn't have one punch power and to my knowledge he's never knocked anyone out from his feet standing up. So I think anybody that can stop a takedown is going to be a good fight for him if they can strike."

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell shares his thoughts on the last man to hold the Pride FC heavyweight title, Fedor Emelianenko. In the article Liddell predicts that Randy Couture would take out the Russian if the two ever lock horns.
