  • Fedor submits to Werdum!

    The end of an unprecedented run in MMA

    Fedor's decade of domination ends with 69-second submission

    Because everyone loses in mixed martial arts, it had to happen.

    An unprecedented era of ring dominance came to a quick end Saturday night when top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko, ensnarled in Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion Fabricio Werdum's long-legged guard, tapped once on the heavy underdog's left thigh. The submission, a triangle choke that came 69 seconds after the opening bell, marked the first time in 10 years and 28 fights that Emelianenko conceded victory.

    Universally ranked atop the division since unseating Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to capture the Pride title in 2003, the quiet Russian, much to his chagrin, acquired an almost mythical standing among MMA watchers as he ripped through many of the world's best, including five UFC champions, to a 31-1 record. The lone loss, controversial and later avenged.
    Congratulations to Werdum.
    And to Fedor as well - a champion for the ages.

    Fedor is a great fighter,but his legacy will be marred unless he gets his rear over to UFC.
    If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon
