Jim Rome Says Fedor Milked UFC For All It’s Worth Then Got Exposed

Fedor Emelianenko was the topic of discussion on a recent episode of Jim Rome’s ESPN show this week where Rome went on a tirade about Emelianenko following his second straight loss this past weekend:

“No matter how good you are, you will lose. Everybody does, there are so many different disciplines and everybody gets caught at some point. But, that’s not what happened to Fedor Emelianenko Saturday against Antonio Silva. After going a decade without losing, he follows up last summer’s loss to Fabricio Werdum by getting his face beaten in Saturday. And that’s no fluke, that’s not a guy getting suckered into a savvy submission hold or just getting caught with one big shot in the chin. That was a bigger, stronger, better fighter on top of Fedor pounding him senseless. Silva said that he was surprised that the doctors stopped the fight. Surprised or disappointed? Did you bother to check that piece of meat that you were bludgeoning between shots. Trust me, he had enough. Fedor admitted enough afterwards, quote, ‘Maybe it’s time to leave … Maybe it’s the last time, maybe it’s high time.’ No, maybe’s about it, if anything it’s probably past time. Now it’s pretty obvious why he didn’t want to sign with the UFC. While Strikeforce does have competitive heavyweights, he didn’t want to fight the best of the best on the biggest stage, he knew better. He refused to take any chances; he milked it for all its worth and he got paid and then exposed and now it’s over.”

    more truthful words have never been spoken.I love Jim Rome he never holds back his opinion.Fedors’ people wouldn’t let fedor come to the UFC, It wasnt fedor who made those decisions.They knew he would be destroyed there and the money train would derail.Fedor may have been a good fighter 5 yrs ago, but just like chuck liddel before him, He has stayed in the game waaay to long and is now suffering for it with a broken face.Long live the UFC!!!!!!
