Russian media outlets recently caught up with legendary heavyweight mixed martial artist Fedor Emelianenko as he returned to Russia from his training camp in Holland.

Emelianenko was on location preparing for his upcoming fight against Satoshi Ishii on Dec. 31, 2011, as part of FieLDS presents: "Fight for Japan," Genki Desu Ka!! at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

When asked about his thoughts on facing the Olympic Judo gold medalist Fedor stated:

"I consider Ishii to be a serious opponent; he’s a very strong guy and great wrestler. Plus it’s clear that he is able to utilize his best characteristics in the fight. I will have to adapt, I’ll have to see how Ishii will be moving around the ring during the fight, what will he offer me, and what will I be able to showcase myself. It will all depend on the situation in the ring."

Also noteworthy is that "The Last Emperor" was seen wearing the Ultimate Sweater of Destruction. Is this a sign of things to come?
