Fedor Emelianenko wants to possibly train stateside, telling Middleeasy.com that he would prefer to train with “someone like Shane Carwin” for the upcoming Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. It’s not clear as to if Carwin would make the trip to Russia as Fedor certainly prefers to train in his home country or if Fedor would be willing to come across the pond.
In any instance Shane Carwin told MMA-Scraps.com that it would be an honor to train with the legendary Emelianenko.
I would be honored to train with Fedor. I feel like I have so much to learn and training with great people and great fighters at the same time seems like a win win.
It will be interesting to see how this develops, Fedor is one of those fighters that likes to keep his training partners “in house” so to speak. He has always trained with close friends and for the most part he has been enormously successful keeping this style of preparation.
