    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Something that I have always wondered about Fedor. He makes bank. And we know that, but when you see videos of his training, his home, his family, and the clothes he wears, you never see any idea that he has any money. You would think that he just started fighting last year.

    What does he do with his money. Or is the Russian Mob getting all of it?

    I guess he's one of those rare rich guys that's not a pretentious douche. Imagine that. And he can kick everyone's ass. Keep it real, Fedor.

    I noticed after the Fedor/Rogers fight, Fedor's entourage included 2 Eastern Orthodox priests who joined the corner-men in the cage post-fight. They weren't in their priest garb but I remember seeing them in the pre-fight countdown show.

    Yeah, he doesn't roll big in that way. The town he trains in actually pitched in and bought him a Toyota Tercel or something like that. He just doesn't seem to care.

    I've never met him, but I have trained with Russians who know him and Fedor is a very humble guy; from what I gather.
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    Yeah, you just can't find anything bad about the guy. How could anyone not like him?

    Fedor puts a ton of his money into rebuilding and giving back to his hometown. The other ton of his money goes to the Russian Church. And he keeps some for himself to travel and dick around with.
