    Fedor is looking good and in shape. Don't think it will be enough, but I don't know anything about what he looks like, minute to minute in preparation.

    Brah..its heavyweight First to land wins..

    Do you even train bellator bro?lol

    Also it's foolish to think after how long Fedors career has been that he's really going to improve enough in wrestling now to compete with a life long wrestler like bader..its better to train for your strengths and prepare for your weaknesses in this case and that's what he's doing..fedors looking knock as he should. ..while hopefully being in shape to fit off takedowns or to get back up once down.. Sprawl and brawl has to be the plan here.. IMO

    Just like Conor.. Buddy thought he could handle khabib by rolling with Dillon Danis for a year lmao look how that turned out... Sometimes you need to stay with what works.. Fedor koing people seems to work. .

    Legit training with soccer moms, the GOAT.

    Anyways that black dude seems like he's mimicking Bader pretty well.

    Fedor looking in pretty decent shape in the recent pictures. His body looked terrible against Hendo and he was very light, I think 223? His peak weight was around 230 and that is probably where he is most comfortable. I think it's best for him to watch his diet closely until the fight. Any extra fat he can lose will be beneficial for his conditioning.

    Then again, he's always been a chub scout and knocked dudes dead.

    He looks as ready as he can look at this stage of it all. Looks like the knee brace never came off in this camp Might mean that his knee is screwed up more than normal. It might also mean that someone told him that it'll be better for him on fight night if he wears it all through training. Who knows? His movement looked ok. He'll have one shot to end it early, and it will come before the first takedown attempt. He's gotta be ready to make it count.

    Is that video of Fedor barking and spitting on the floor backstage still around?

    I don't think current Fedor's Sambo is enough nowadays. Too many years focusimg on headhunting imo. He used to fight like a grappler though

    According to some people in this thread, this training camp in the best case scenario for Fedor, despite the fact that he would be welcomed by any gym in the world!

    Holland is the best for sure though, Fedor getting in good work with soccer moms and amateurs!

    I’d bet my money on Fedor doing what he thinks is best for himself.

    At his age and the damage on his body, he needs to feel comfortable and work with people he trusts. He trusts his people in Russia, and he trusts his people in Holland. There are no training methods that are going to make him ready to effectively wrestle with someone like Bader. He has to land. He has to land first, and he has to do it right away. The guys in Holland are going to be the best ones to keep his timing sharp.

    He took a picture with everyone in the gym. He's Fedor, he's a big deal to people in the fight community.

    Fedor spent half of his camp with Nemkov who just outwrestled and tossed around Phil Davis. Now he's in the second part of his camp in Holland where hes working on his timing with Peter Teijsse who came up with Hoost and coach Vos. Fedors BJJ coach is also in Holland and is a black belt in BJJ under Rickson Gracie and his name is Maxim Leidjekker. Its clear for Fedor in his current age and physical state it's important to train smarter and not harder and he has that around him with the people he trusts.

    Yep. Trust. He has two things that he can really hope to pull off. He can land a big shot or series of them, or he can make something happen from the bottom. There are plenty of videos out there of Leijdekker doing seminars. He's the perfect fit for Fedor at this point. Fundamentals and finding little mistakes or errors in momentum that he can counter. That mixed with his lifetime of training and mastering of explosive escapes and setups gives him the best chance he is going to get to survive or turn things into his favor if he can't get the knockout. I don't know if he can pull this off. It is an enormously tall task for him to take out what might be the best version of Bader we've actually seen. Not at 42. We'll see. Good camp though

    Is he only training in a ring? Clinching with Bader against the fence is gonna be a nightmare.
