Strikeforce / M-1 Global | The Last Emperor vs BigfootCategory: MMA
In the main event of Strikeforce / M-1 Global: Fedor vs Silva on February 12, 2011 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA, Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko looks to bounce back from a shocking loss to Fabricio Werdum when he faces Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
Russian Fedor Emelianenko (32 wins – 8 KOs / 16 submissions, 2 losses, 1 no-contest) has been universally considered the best heavyweight fighter in the world for the last seven years by major publications. He is also at the top or near the top of various pound for pound lists.
He holds the distinction of having held five separate major championships including the RINGS World Heavyweight and King of Kings Championships, the Pride Fighting Championships World Heavyweight and Heavyweight Grand Prix Championships and the World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts Heavyweight Championship. Many analysts, as well as former and current fighters, consider Emelianenko to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.
Check out his highlights video.
Until tapping out to Fabricio Werdum on June 26, 2010, Emelianenko was largely considered undefeated.
Brazilian Antonio Silva (17 wins – 10 KOs / 3 submissions, 2 losses) is the first and last EliteXC heavyweight champion. As of May 2010, he is ranked as the #10 heavyweight in the world by Sherdog.
In his last fight at Strikeforce: Henderson vs Babalu II last December 4, 2010, he knocked out Mike Kyle in the second round.
