Fedor's MMA Career Accomplishments

What i found really interesting was the last paragraph, apparently he's the most celebrated fighter in his country... no wonder he was so adamant in being able to also compete in Russia

Multiple PRIDE Grand Prix winner
European and world champion Sambo
Owner of national prize in the area of fighting arts “Zolotoi Poyas” (Golden Belt)
Winner of the nomination for “the most spectacular win of the year”

Fedor Vladimirovich Emelianenko was born on September 28th, 1976. He began taking Judo classes when he was 10 years old, starting in the junior club of Alexander Nevskii and was coached by Vasiliy Ivanovich Gavrilov. After one year he was accepted into a sports class created by coach Vladimir Mixailovich Voronov.

At 21 years of age, he completed the criteria to be considered a Master of Sports in both Sambo and Judo. After a year of intense workouts, he was named to the Russian Olympic team and became a master in the international class of Sambo.

In 1998, Fedor won a Russian Class A Judo tournament, earning him the distinction of the top Russian Judo champion under the age of 23. He went on to win the bronze medal in the Russian Sambo Championships held in Kaliningrad, and later took home the silver in the Armed Forces category, which spans all weight classes.

In 1999, as a member of team Russia, Emelianenko won international Sambo and Judo Class A tournaments in Moscow, Sofia and Bulgaria. In the European championship, team Russia took first place as Fedor earned the distinction of master in the international class of Judo.

In 2000, Fedor began studying different striking techniques under the direction of Alexander Vacilivich Michkov in the Golden Gloves.

In 2001, he won the title of World Champion in the free fights, heavyweight category for “Rings” in Tokyo, Japan. In the same year, he became absolute champion of the world.

In 2002, Fedor became a member of PRIDE, the most prestigious mixed martial arts organization in existence. He became the champion of Russia in sambo won the following sambo championships:

- May 2002, (Greece), Champion of the world in the highest category (+100kg)
- October 2002 (Panama), Absolute world champion
- October 2005 (Czech Republic), Champion of the world in the highest category (+100kg)

He was admitted into the state university of Belgograd. Currently, he is a student in his fourth year, studying physical behaving. Since 2002, he has worked as athlete-coach in the Alexander Nevskii health club, “OEMK”.

He has won PRIDE championships in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006, and is considered the strongest fighter in the world.

In 2005, he was given a medal for “Achievements for the Home Country,” and was named the Highest Achievement in the field of fighting at the Russian ceremony, “50 Years - 50 Gorgeous Achievements.” In 2005, he received the name “Deserved master in the sport of Russia.”

We may never see a fighter like Fedor in MMA again. That's why I support and cheer for him every fight! The man has done so much and is truly dedicated to Sambo and his country.

It's not really a secret, but most American fans don't get it. Attached it my piece on Fedor, but there are more reasons than just his career accomplishments that explain why he's the best beyond just his accomplishments in MMA.

Still, he's brought MMA to Russia and made it a point that Combat Sambo and MMA both have alot to offer each other. As far as his celebration goes among the Russians, he's more celebrated than any of the great boxers coming out of their country, and there's good reason for that, not the least of which is that he's a champion in MMA and in the national sport of Russia: Combat Sambo.

I was talking to a Russian buddy of mine and we live in Canada. He said "Fedor is to Russia as Gretzky is to Canada".

I dont think there will ever be anoth fighter like Fedor and if he only fights can the rest of his career it doesnt matter because he could retire right now and still be considered the greatest of all time.

Good way to put it. I'd just like to see him get the recognition in the West that he deserves, because, well, he deserves it. But that's his call, I guess. I'm still pissed that he didn't sign with UFC, and I guess I always will be unless he actually does, but you can't deny what the man's done.
I just hope his M-1 career isn't the string of joke fights I'm afriad it will be. It's no way for a champion to spend his prime year's.

I just dont see a reason why Fedor/Barnett wouldnt be able to happen. If they dont make that fight happen im going to be very upset.

I think its bound to happen eventually. Barnett wants to continue fighting overseas and we all know that hell never sign with the UFC again. Although I know people are upset he didnt come to the UFC its not like their isnt some good talent still floating around out there. Barnett and Monson are two fights I would love to see.
