Aleks Emelianenko vs Fabricio Werdum (spoiler)

I know this fight wasn't actually in PRIDE, but these 2 are both PRIDE HW, and there were multiple PRIDE fighters on the 2H2H-Pride And Honor card. Anyway, Fabricio Werdum defeated Aleksander Emelianenko via sidechoke in the 1st round.

I personally am not surprised by the outcome. I know most will be because Aleks is held in such high regard because of his brother. Werdum is continuing to get better and better in MMA. He should now be ranked as the 5th best HW in PRIDE behind Fedor, Cro Cop, Barnett, and Nog. Big win for Werdum. I wonder if this will hurt things regarding the Aleks to UFC rumors?

I'm not sure about that. But Werdum does give Fedor another opponent possibility in the near future. I wouldn't mind seeing a Werdum/Fedor, or a Werdum/Barnett match. If Aleks keeps losing to top PRIDE HW, Fedor is gonna have alot of avenging to do.

Shit ! This might not look good for Aleksander right at the moment with all of the talk of him going to the UFC, Dana might not want to bring him in after he just lost, but hey, I don't know Dana, just saying.

well now it would be interesting to see how well he would stand up against some of the so called "Top Elite" HW fighters in the UFC.

Only ones that count are...well Andre Arlovski...Monson...thats it haha.

If he is getting owned in Pride...and goes to UFC and owns...its more proof about Pride vs UFC debates.

Agreed. Aleksander isn't the greatest but he should do well in the UFC. I'm lookin forward to seeing if him going to the UFC is gonna go through or not. If he does I can see him being champ

nogueira is very angry at fedor(at the fact that he cant do anything against him), and i beleive most brazlians BJJ fighters are as well... i read an interview(cant find the link anymore) of nogueira talking to brazilian press and saying stuff like "i cant get a grip of him because hes so chubby".. lol, and i THINK the other fighter interviewed along with him was werdum.


regarding Alek's loss, i dont think it should be an upset, since no1 knew his ground game, and i guess now we know its not as good as his brother. Alek is getting attention obviously because of his brother, not because of his own fighting skills.. hes above average for sure, but i would put him at the end of the top 10 hw

Just because he lost to BJJ black belt and one of the best HWs in the world, a guy who has been training with Mirko Crocop for quite some time now, it does not mean he cant beat up on chumps like Arlovski or especially Tim Sylvia. I m being rude because you re being ignorant, so dont even bother qutoing this, it ll make you look like mroe of an idiot.

some fans who were at the show recorded the fight and put it YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.. It was actually pretty lame. If Aleks keeps fighting like this then there is no way that he is going to dominate in the UFC HWD....No way!!!
