Quote of the Day: Jeff Monson Talks Fedor Emelianenko, Sergei Kharitonov

New, comments


My goal in DREAM is to fight the best. Ultimately, I want to fight Fedor. If DREAM could set that up it would be great.

I am happy that the fight (with Sergei Kharitonov) ended quickly as I know Sergeiy is a tough fighter with good conditioning. I wanted to end it quickly and am glad I managed to do so.

I was a little surprised that I caught him like that so early. Normally that sort of hold is something that would take awhile to get. I have been training with Roy Nelson at American Top Team and there are many great ground fighters there.

(I'd been) training that move just last night so it was very fresh in my mind. Of course when the opening was there, I took it.
