He's a classy guy- with all the shit people like Dana White's been saying about him, and yet he doesn't get involved. A true champ in and out of the ring.

When Fedor said this:

What's your motivation now? Fedor: I want to win, stay involved in what I like the most. I want to bring in a worthy Russian fighter as a future substitute for me. I want Russian banner to be placed in the first lines of the magazines regardless their bias.
'Bias' just means perspective, orientation, nationality or w/e. I don't think Fedor was implying there is some sort of international biased conspiracy against Russian athletes.

He wasn't even talking about bias. He was simply saying that he wants Russian flag was placed in the first place in all magazines and articles independant what kind they are.

Anyway, I want to hear about this anti- Russian strain in the American media I could see why in the Soviet era, not now though.

Blame Rocky IV and Ivan Drago.

But seriously, I don't have a real comment on this debate. I just wanted to agree that Fedor continues to show his class in and out of the ring. I wish we could see him defend his status against the other top fighters in the world.

I come across anti-Russian bias on consistant basis in every media coming from America. But I digress.
