‘DC’ clarified his recent comments about Emelianenko being ‘average at best’ in the UFC during 2009-2012 in a YouTube video.
“Fedor Emelianenko. Guys, let’s just put this out there. I absolutely love Fedor,” Cormier stated (h/t Sportskeeda). “Let’s not make it anything that it isn’t. So earlier in the week I had this conversation on my show, Debate DC… We had a conversation about whether Fedor could rule the UFC in the way that he did at some of the other, Pride and all the other organizations that he fought in prior.”
“I said no. But I was very specific in the timeframe. I didn’t say that 2005, four, three, six Fedor couldn’t… I said in a window of nine to 12, I didn’t think that he would be as good as he had shown to be prior.”
