Fedor, the Bus and the curious case of Mike Schiavello - Clearing the air.

Fedor Emelianenko bus ride story with Bibiano Fernandez and Matt Hume (via AMCPankration)

So as it turns out the gentleman commenting on my previous article titled "Fedor is not a diva. He is still the kind soul we all knew he was" was in fact Joel Jamieson, professional sports trainer and founder of EndZone Athletics.

He told us that he would deliver with a video showing that Mike Schiavello might have misunderstood what was actually said in Fedor's bus and he did. The video is above in all of it's glory. HD and everything. Thanks Joel.

So to everyone saying that Joel Jamieson was an impostor and that Fedor was a selfish person, you might want to look at it a bit more objectively next time chaps. Maybe ask yourselves why a lovely Russian man who loves ice cream, drives a Toyota, lives in Stary Oskol and has been humble his whole life even as an undefeated champion over a 10 year span would have the audacity to kick everyone off a bus so that he can have it all to himself.

Fedor, being the sweet soul that he is actually went out of his way to help all of the fighters have a more productive journey home. (Don't you just want to pinch his cheeks)

So let's not throw people under the bus (ha!) before we know the full story and not just fragments of an emotional outburst from a rowdy albeit good commentator.

Hugs and kisses all around for Fedor.


There you have it.

Also i appreciate the feedback and all the recs guys! Thanks!
