...It was bound to happen soon. Rizzo isn't nothing what he was but that was a classic Fedor beatdown. He went out with a nice KO. He gave the MMA world some memorable fights we can look back on and still cheer. Fedor has a young body with a lotta miles on it. I often wonder about Rogan saying" Werdum shattered the myth surrounding Fedor". I think losing back to back played a role as well. Anywho, it's too bad Emelianenko never set foot into the Octagon. Whatever Fedor decides, he's earned it and them some. A historic run to the Pride HW belt. His fights with Big Nog were classic.
He defended that WAMMA belt twice against 2 game competitors at the time. Add that to his 12 Russian Sambo gold medals, an all around respectful guy, you have a legend...
