An Afternoon with the "Emperor" - Featured at The Garv by Shawn Brown.
From the article:
"This past Sunday, I had the distinct pleasure of spending an afternoon with “The Last Emperor”. That’s right, I spent three hours with the man, the myth, the legend himself: Fedor Emelianenko. Fedor was in NJ for the M-1 Global Selection Semifinals the night before in Atlantic City.
"What very few knew was that there had been a plan in place for Fedor to do a private, invitation only seminar at his friend and fellow Sambo competitor, Oleg Savitsky’s academy in Middlesex, NJ. The site was Zealous Nation MMA and this state of the art facility hosted a rare, once in a lifetime experience that had grown adults looking like children in Toys R Us for the very first time. Proudly, I was one of them. As soon as Fedor walked into the room the entire atmosphere changed and there was a long pause of dead silence before the room erupted with a warm, welcoming ovation for the school’s guest of honor. All the while, it was we who were honored to be there with Fedor."
