All Glory to the Hypnofoot? Fedor's Camp Cries "Psychological Shenanigans"
According to Vladimir Voronov, Fedor's trainer, the Russian heavyweight fighter was the victim of hostile, illegal hypnotic suggestion on the part of the Silva camp.
And while the fighter himself has not made such claims, his camp has apparently consulted "Hypnotic Experts" in Russia who "confirm" that psychological tampering was brought to bear against the former champion.
The human mind has enormous power of suggestion, it explains all sorts of curses, evil eye, etc., - has told Life Sports Specialist Schools Gennady Goncharov Nicholas Zakharkin. - Therefore, if a well-trained specialists are in the area of visual contact with Emelianenko, then he could convince all that he pleases, and have any effect. If the hypnotist was set up and sat at a distance where he could meet eyes...
Although LifeSports.ru, the source of this article, may be staffed by idiots, the truly unfortunate thing may be that the same could be said of "The Last Emperor's" training staff.

Maybe this is some kind of Russian thing - remember that silly promotional video from Ryabko Systema where a lady in the voiceover claimed Ryabko could teach you to harness "the psychic energy", while the video showed him knocking people over without touching them?

So basically, the Russians, culturally, believe a lot of stupid bullshit?

Yeah, I remember hearing something about Fedor being the #1 ranked heavyweight in the world while he spent years beating low-rent tomato cans.

It's completely true! Bigfoots camp confirmed that they hired a Brazilian witchdoctor and sacrificed both a black chicken AND a black goat at a crossroads! That's serious mindfuck mojo right there! Fedor never had a chance!

Did you expect Fedor"s camp to blame Fedor's camp?
