Fedor Emelianenko and his M-1 management team have been called every name in the book by frustrated members of the mixed martial arts community, but "bus hoggers" has to be a new one.

As you likely know, Emelianenko was the headlining attraction at DREAM's year-end DREAM: New Year! 2011 event. Fighting in Japan for the first time in four years, "The Last Emperor" needed just two-and-a-half minutes to blast through Satoshi Ishii and warm the hearts of PRIDE fans everywhere.

Apparently, the behind-the-scenes aftermath didn't got as smoothly. HDNet play-by-play announcer Michael Schiavello documented the ugliness with a bizarre ten-tweet rant.

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

No he doesn't. 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!
