Ryan Bader Gained’t Deal with Fedor Emelianenko As His Superior
Bader just lately appeared on MMA Junkie Radio and stated Emelianenko’s mystique isn’t his concern:
“I think he gets just as anxious and nervous and all that like the rest of us, and I could see that. For me, it’s just – I’m not going to put him on a pedestal. I’m going to go out and do what I do. I’m coming out as the champ, as ‘I’m going to go out there and beat him.’ I’m the best in the world. That’s my mentality. The mystique and all that about it, it’s going to be gone. It’s very cool when I can look back later at it. But right now I’ve just go to see him as just another man.”
Bader defeated Muhammed Lawal and Matt Mitrione to earn his spot within the Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix finals. In the meantime, Emelianenko punched his ticket by knocking out Frank Mir and Chael Sonnen within the first spherical.
