The ‘Emperor’ Fedor Emelianenko doesn’t really seem to care much about the UFC biggest star Conor McGregor. During his maiden visit to the ‘ESPN Helwani MMA Show,’ Emelianenko chose to ignore veteran journalist Ariel Helwani’s question about the Irish Mixed Martial Arts legend.
Ariel, referring to the recent meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Conor McGregor during the FIFA 2019, was asking Fedor about Mr. Putin’s decision to hang out and pose for a picture with Irishman, instead of his Opponent and Russian Nationale Khabib Normogedev. Fedor ignored Ariel’s question completely and wanted him to move on to the next question.
Fedor’s answer: “Next question”. #HelwaniShow

While Ariel was not the only person in the MMA world who had similar doubts regarding Mr. Putin’s love towards the Irishman, who is to face Khabib in one of the biggest events in the history of the sports. On the other than, It is still unclear why Fedor chose to answer this question. Maybe out of the respect towards his president or maybe because he doesn’t give enough F***s about the Irishman and his antics.
