Quoteworthy:

"He is a very strong and good fighter. He won 5 times in the championship on the UFC and he is 4th position in the world ranking. I'm proud to fight him.... I defeated a fighter who was a lot bigger than him, so I don't think it's too hard to fight a big fighter."

Fedor Emelianenko talks about his upcoming heavyweight showdown with Tim Sylvia during the main event of Affliction: "Banned" at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. on July 19. It will be the biggest test for "The Last Emperor" since a unanimous decision win over Mirko Cro Cop in August 2005 (although Mark Hunt is no slouch ... and he defeated him via kimura in 2006).
