HDNet's Michael “The Voice” Schiavello voiced his frustrations via Twitter following the DREAM NYE card that took place in the Japan after Fedor Emelianenko's team commanded a 70 seat bus to themselves and forced other fighters to crowd onto other buses and even kicked one fighter off the bus:
“Thanks to all who watched our 9 HOUR live DREAM show! It was FUN!!! BTW Fedor is SUCH a DIVA! Other fighters & us sat on bus for about 90 min after show because Fedor apparently needs a bus all to himself! Even Bibi Fernandes and his team were booted off the second bus because 'that is Fedor's bus,' mind you these are like 70 seat tour buses! Seriously, it was just plain RUDE. Fighters want to get to their hotel we ALL HAD TO WAIT & Bibi had to clear off the Fedor bus. If greats like Hoost, JLB, Sefo, Schilt, Hunt, Hug, Aerts etc can all bus share, Fedor can too. Fancy booting Bibi Fernandes & his team off ONE BUS and onto the other more crowded one. Dude just won the B/W GP! #rude Not to mention sitting there for 90 mins on a bus at 1230am waiting, waiting, waiting… I get the 'special treatment' thing but hey, hire a small private van or a limousine, I'v seen that done before. Don't keep others waiting. Sucked that I had to wait but more so guys who had fought their hearts out — Bibi, Banuelos, Saadulaev etc waiting 90 min! No hate, I love Fedor's style of fighting, huge fan, just saying the diva bus demand was harsh on other fighters waiting to go. Trouble is that management reflects on their clients, hence this reflects on Fedor.”
