UFC Quick Quote: Brock Lesnar doesn't really want to talk about fighting Fedor Emelianenko

"I have nothing against Fedor [Emelianenko]. He’s a great fighter. Would I ever fight him some day? Absolutely I would. I keep getting this question: ‘You don’t like Fedor?’ No, I don’t have anything against the guy. There’s just nothing to talk about until there’s a fight between him and I, and he signs with this organization. Then we can talk."

-- UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar shares his thoughts on a possible showdown with WAMMA Heavyweight Champion -- and perhaps the best fighter in the division on the planet -- Fedor Emelianenko in the second installment of his interview with "Inside MMA" on HDNet. It’s a dream match up that will likely never become reality at least in the near term. Unless, of course, UFC officials expedite the construction of that stadium in Russia. For now, we will have to "settle" for "Lesnar vs. Mir 2" on July 11 and the return of "The Last Emperor" sometime in summer 2009 against a yet to be announced opponent. Ho-hum.
