Here's the final translation of Fedor's online meeting with fans from January 8, 2007. I reformatted it and fixed a couple of minor things. You can find the previous discussion here:
Q: In your opinion, who are the best fighters in the world under 96 kg, and in what order?
A: I think they are Shogun, Wanderlei Silva, and Chuck Liddell
Q: What did you think of the Silva/Crocop fight in 2006 GP?
A: Mirko was technically sound, but Wanderlei was unrecognizable; I think he gained extra weight and wasn't doing what he should have.
Q: Is there a chance to see you in the UFC? Did they offer you a contract?
A: I don't know what the chances are, this is really a question for Vadim Finkelstein (Fedor's manager – CF). At this point Pride is the best MMA organization in the world, so we compete in Pride. Although, we did receive offers from UFC.
Q: What do you think of the UFC champion, Tim Silvia? How high does he rank compared to the top ten heavyweights?
A: Frankly speaking, I never really thought about this. I haven't seen many of Tim's fights, so I can't really say where exactly he is in the top ten. The fights that I saw weren't bad.
Q: What do you think of "Systema"?
A: I don't understand the question.
Q: Young undefeated UFC fighter Diego Sanchez trained with you. What do you think of him and of George St. Pierre?
A: We never trained together, but I saw his fights. I think he is a good, promising fighter.
Q: If Nogueira and Crocop had a rematch today, who would have a higher chance of winning?
A: Everything depends on how they implement their game plans. If Mirko keeps it standing, Nogueira will suffer. At the same time, if Nogueira forces his game on Mirko and brings the fight to the ground, Mirko will have less of a chance to win, since he is weaker on the ground.
Q: If you found yourself in a submission hold that you thought you couldn't get out of, would you tap out?
A: I've never been in such a situation, so I really don't know what I would do.
Q: Were you rocked by Mark Hunt's punch to the back of your head in your last fight?
A: It didn't rock me, but it was unpleasant.
Q: Do you think that Mirko can do better in a rematch against you? Do you think there is a reason to do a rematch? Did he get better? Does he have anything that can be a threat to you?
A: I think that Mirko can do better if he fixes his mistakes, but I will also try to come up with some threats for him.
Q: Have you signed a contract with Pride?
A: At this point the negotiations are ongoing. We have a preliminary agreement between us in place.
Q: Is there a chance for a fight in Russia, and when?
A: It's planned for April by M-1 together with Bodog.
Q: How serious is your toe injury?
A: At this point everything is fine; I am not even limping anymore. It was unfortunate that I broke the toe before the fight, so we had to cancel the sparring sessions and running. The only thing I could do was working with punching bags.
Q: When is your next fight?
A: It's in Spring, in St. Petersburg. I might also participate in the Russian Combat Sambo Championship in February in Ulan-Ude.
Q: Do you know of any young fighters who can be a challenge for you in a fight? Kirill Sidelnikov, perhaps?
A: I think he is too young. However, Kirill is learning very fast; he is a promising fighter. I really hope that he can fill my shoes some day.
Q: Does living in Russia satisfy your personal ambitions?
A: Yes, completely.
Q: Do you know Putin personally? Someone should tell that judoka whose "kung-fu" is better.. You might want to do a better PR – maybe more people in our country will start learning the sport.
A: No, I do not know Putin personally. We have not met in person yet. I'll think about better PR.
Q: You have beaten all real contenders in Pride. Who's next?
A: I don't know who's going to be next in Pride, we have not discussed it yet. It might be Nogueira, again, or Josh Barnett.
Q: Was Hunt's submission attempt a real threat? We were all thinking that was it!
A: There really was absolutely no threat.
Q: When you fought Mirko, starting with the second round we could see in his eyes that he was lost. It felt like he realized that he cannot beat you. You beat him at this own game. Was it a revenge for your little brother? Your attack was quite ferocious.
A: No, it wasn't because of my brother. It was our tactic and a desire to fight.
Q: We arranged with Igor (Fedor's website admin – CF) for you to be on air live on Sport 93.2 FM. Will you have some time for Q&A?
A: Yes, it's scheduled for January 11, and I'll try to be there.
Q: Are you going to build your house in Oskol or are you moving to Moscow suburbs?
A: I'll build it in Oskol. Frankly speaking, I don't want to move anywhere.
Q: During the fight with Crocop, Pride showed your spouse in the audience. She must have nerves of steel to be able to watch you fight. How does she do it? Is she completely confident in your ability to win?
A: Well, you should really ask her...
Q: You are participating in the Bodog promotion in March. Is this a single fight with you remaining in Pride, or is it a real possibility that you'll join BodogFIGHT?
A: No, we do not have a long-term contract yet, but it's really a question for Vadim (Fedor's manager).
Q: We haven't heard much from your brother Aleksander. Are we going so see him in MMA, and if so, when?
A: He will continue to fight in MMA. His next fight will be in April.
Q: They call you the Russian Fighting Machine. You are ready for any fight under any circumstances.
A: So far that's how it is, both in MMA and in life.
Q: What does one need to do to become such a "machine" in our country? It's more genetic than acquired...
A: No, it's all acquired. I wouldn't say that I am so naturally gifted athletically.
Q: Do you think that you were lucky to become who you are now in our country, in our conditions?
A: There was some degree of luck, of course, but I mostly achieved it through hard work.
