Fedor Training Hard for Comeback: ‘Give Me The Best Fighters in the World’




During a Q&A session at a youth forum in the North Caucasus, , Fedor talked about his decision to return ( As Transcribed by Bloody Elbow):


“The desire to fight in my blood,” Fedor responded when asked about his return. “I’m in the sport for 11 years – my whole life is training and competition. Over the years, there has been a thirst not only to participate in battles, but also to transfer their knowledge and skills. After consulting with trainers, with the support of the family, I decided to return.

“I must admit that I still had a long talk with my wife to get her support. But I found the words and persuaded Xenia. It generally supports me in every endeavor. And my mother … my mother is very worried. Immediately I call, she learned. But in the end, too, I took my decision.”


He also talked about who he would like to face:


“Now this is being negotiated, in particular with the UFC, as well as some other promotions. I think it will soon be finally determined. As for the opponent, I would say that desire must comply opportunities. I would like to face the strongest fighters in the world – UFC champion Fabricio Werdum. Given that over three years, I did not fight during the first fight I would like to get involved, check for myself.

“So now I’ll regain my shape after returning from “Mashuk” [youth forum] and will then begin a scheduled training camp.”
