Fedor Emelianenko Unfazed by Opponent's Extreme Confidence

CHICAGO -- Fedor Emelianenko-mania officially hit the Chicago-area on Wednesday, as the consensus best heavyweight in MMA met the media just days before his Strikeforce and CBS debut on Saturday night. Meanwhile, his opponent, Brett Rogers, was in Bristol, Conn., doing the ESPN media rounds, and telling anyone who would listen that he is going to shock the world this weekend.

FanHouse spoke to Emelianenko about Rogers' confidence heading into their fight and how he is dealing with all the attention he has received in the weeks leading up to this event. Check out the video interview below.
