Strikeforce / M-1 Global | Bigfoot Tramples Fedor!Category: MMA
A Bigfoot is a mythical creature that purportedly resembles a giant ape – a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid.
For the last ten years, Fedor Emelianenko has reigned atop the mixed-martial arts world with many calling him possibly the greatest mixed martial artist of all time. He was virtually undefeated. Even though he lost to Fabricio Werdum in his last fight, it was dismissed as a fluke arguing that anyone could lose to a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion like Werdum is when caught.
Until he met a Bigfoot.
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, Brazilian giant Antonio Silva pummeled “The Last Emperor” with an endless array of punches and submission attempts in Round 2.
After the round ended, Emelianenko’s face was a hideous mess, his right eye swollen shut with a possible cracked orbital bone. The ring doctor could do nothing but tell referee Dan Mirgaliotta to stop the fight.
At the post-fight press conference, Silva said:
“A lot of people say he has the strength of a bear. But I have the strength of a Bigfoot.”
Fedor could only say,
“Maybe it is the time to leave. Maybe it is the last time. Maybe it is my time.”
I doubt it. Fedor will return.
