MMA Quick Quote: Freddie Roach is going to 'eat crow' for Fedor Emelianenko remarks

Arlovski Barnett

"As far as his striking not being impressive, I guess Freddie Roach is going to eat crow. It’s not like what Freddie Roach is used to and what he would normally step into a boxing ring and see across the way. Fedor's striking for MMA is very precise and it's been very successful for him.... The minute you push [Fedor], he doesn't go back, he comes forward and he just immediately punches and tries to take you down. If he encounters trouble on the feet, he doesn't try to stay and work his way out of that, he changes gears."

-- Top-ranked heavyweight contender Josh Barnett tells Cage Writer that world renowned boxing trainer Freddie Roach is essentially wrong about the numerous criticisms of Fedor Emelianenko heading into Affliction: "Day of Reckoning." Roach called "The Last Emperor" "flat-footed" with "no technique." He also claimed the former PRIDE heavyweight champion would be knocked out if he "fought like a man." We'll find out on Saturday (January 24) when the current WAMMA heavyweight champion collides with the Roach-trained Andrei Arlovski in the main event from the Honda Center.
