Fedor Emelianenko Highlights VideoCategory: MMA
Widely considered not just the best heavyweight MMA fighter in the world but possibly the greatest mixed martial artist of all time, Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko has dominated just about every fighter he had faced.
In his last fight against the much heavier (by 30 lbs.) and taller (by 5 inches) Brett “The Grim” Rogers in his first fight for the Strikeforce organization last November 7, 2009, he showed the world why he is above all the rest by knocking Rogers down and then pounding him on the ground in the 2nd Round.
This is after he survived an onslaught in the 1st Round when he was bloodied up by Roger’s powerful punches.
Of course, he is expected to breeze through Werdum easily.
After all, Fedor is ‘undefeated’ with 32 wins. Ok, he actually has 1 loss (to Tsuyoshi Kohsaka) but it came under highly irregular circumstances. The fight, a tournament bout, was stopped after approximately 15 seconds when Emelianenko received a significant cut from an illegal elbow from Kohsaka. Normally, a stoppage caused by an illegal strike would result in a no contest or a DQ victory for the recipient. However, because this was a tournament, in order to have a fighter available for the next round, Kohsaka was advanced and Emelianenko was considered “eliminated”. Because of this, many consider Emelianenko to be “undefeated” for all practical purposes, and it is common to see him referred to as such. (Wikipedia)
Let’s take a look at Fedor Emelianenko’s dominance with his highlights video below courtesy of YouTube’s kingatrock20081:
Fedor has already faced and defeated some of the biggest names in MMA history: Ricardo Arona, Renato Sobral, Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, Gary Goodridge, Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman, Mirko Filipović, Mark Hunt, Matt Lindland, Hong-Man Choi, Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski.
However, due to his reluctance to fight in the UFC and fight the Lesnars, the Coutures, the Carwins, the Velasquezs, the Dos Santos and the Mirs, some people (especially Dana White) don’t consider his as the top pound-for-pound fighter at all.
Many MMA fans (me included) are hoping he gets signed in the biggest MMA organization so he can prove to everyone that he really is the greatest once he beats all those guys in the Octagon.
UPDATE June 26, 2010: In a shocking upset, Fedor suffers his first unquestionable loss when he taps out against Fabricio Werdum in the main event of Strikeforce: Fedor vs Werdum today at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, USA.
