Frank Trigg: Fedor speaks English


On the latest episode of Rebellion MMA Radio, Trigg was asked to share some of his most memorable stories in MMA.

“A lot of my stories are usually weird stuff from after parties that you really can’t talk about," said Trigg. "But going to Japan a lot you really learn about a lot of different people. You see Jake Shields over there all the time, you see Gilbert Melendez over there all the time and it’s just a weird situation when you’re in this foreign land with all of these Americans but the most interesting thing was drinking vodka with Fedor."

“[Fedor and I] are sitting there in the hotel bar and we’re talking and we’re having a great time and all of a sudden I realize that this fool speaks English. I was like ‘Come on man, you’re really going to pull this?’ It’s not good English or clear English but you can definitely understand it enough to talk to him. He was just like ‘Nah, I don’t like doing it because I don’t feel comfortable on the microphone’ and we were just talking for five minutes in a straight English conversation without a translator.”

“Then he goes ‘You know its funny’ and I go ‘What’s that?’ and he says ‘The more you drink vodka, the better you think your Russian is.’ That was when I first started realizing how the world works.”

Does anyone know where the gif of Fedor winking came from? I have a sneaking suspicion but just want to confirm.

Fedor always comes across as a down-to-earth and humble guy. He's a class act all the way. I also like how PRIDE gave the viewers backstage access to see the fighters reactions and in the locker room interacting with each other. Much more informative and interesting than the canned interviews in the Octagon immediately following the fights that we see now.
