Michael Bisping: Fedor Emelianenko could be fighting injured

Props: The Sun


It’s going to be good to see if Fedor is still the man but I’ve heard on the grapevine from inside sources that he could be injured. But this is time for Fedor to step up. Everyone knows what Tim Sylvia is all about but Fedor’s had an aura about him for a long time. The guy was devastating in Pride but he’s had a long lay off now and his last couple of fights have been against smaller guys. It’ll be interesting to see if he’s still got what he had in Pride - which I’m sure he has - because the guy’s probably the best fighter in MMA history.

UFC middleweight Michael "The Count" Bisping comments on the upcoming fight between former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko and former UFC heavyweight champion Tim "The Maine-iac" Sylvia at Affliction: Banned on July 19 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
