In an unusually candid moment, UFC head cheese Dana White addressed reporters concerning the recent performance of Fedor Emelianenko, who won in spectacular fashion in the main event of Saturday night's CBS-broadcast Strikeforce event and reasserted himself as the best heavyweight fighter in the world. "Okay, I admit it," said the crestfallen promoter. "Our heavyweight division sucks without Fedor." The statement comes as a complete shock to those used to White's standard rhetoric, as he's long decried that those fighters who dare compete outside of the Octagon must suck by the simple virtue of them not being UFC fighters. "I'm sick of lying about it," White continued. "That little Russian blows away our champ Brock Lesnar. Plus, he's already beaten [Antonio Rodrigo] Nogueira twice, and God knows what he'd do to poor Randy [Couture]." Added White sheepishly, "But at least we have Kimbo, right?"
