"Still, I think there are some fighters who lay too much on their opponents, without delivering fans the exciting fight they deserve. In my opinion, MMA fighter should be a thinking fighter. That's the most important aspect - to think. And of course it's very important to be well rounded. It's great to see that a lot of young fighters keep moving in the right direction."
-- Mother Russia doesn't like lay-n-pray. Former PRIDE Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko, currently mired in an 0-3 slump, will try to get back into the win column against Jeff Monson on Nov. 20 under the M-1 banner at the Olimpiskiy Sports Complex in Moscow, Russia. And he'll try to do it (via LowKick.com) in a way that will please the fans, which means STAND-AND-BANG!!! Of course, that could have a lot to do with why "The Last Emperor" hasn't won a fight since 2009 but hey, at least he's delivering those exciting fights MMA fans crave so relentlessly. Anyone think this is the fight that will finally see the legendary Emelianenko return to form? Or will Monson utilize some good old lay-n-pray of his own and send Fedor to yet another defeat? Opinions, please.
