Dan Henderson recently told ESPN that he hopes Fedor Emelianenko shows up “in-shape” for their big fight this weekend. We won’t know for sure until Saturday night and pictures can sometimes be deceiving, but judging by this photo Fedor and Hendo took together at the fighter hotel today, Fedor appears to be noticeably slimmer than we’ve seen him in recent fights. At the very least, the size difference between the two appears to be minimal.

Oh, and about all the retirement speculation, Fedor recently told MMA Weekly, “I’d like to continue to fight. I feel great, my health is great and I’m in good physical shape.” That doesn’t sound like a fighter who wants to hang it up to me.
