Fedor: Women Shouldn’t Be MMA Fighters, They Should Be Feminine & Raising Children

5

In a new interview this week with Russia’s CTV.BY, MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko made some very controversial comments about his disapproval of women competing in Mixed Martial Arts.

The Last Emperor said that he he respects women that represent their countries in wrestling or boxing at the Olympics, but he does not support WMMA.

In order to be successful, Fedor says you have to do everything very well and be well-rounded. Apparently that doesn’t apply to women, because he doesn’t think there are any successful female fighters and they’re all one-dimensional.

As for what women should be doing? Raising children and being “feminine.” He added that there are some sports that women can participate in, but MMA is not one of them.

Comment below and tell us what you think about Fedor’s remarks.
