Last Fight vs. Ryan Bader 1/26/19
With a long MMA career, a massive unbeaten streak, and many more MMA accolades under his belt, Russian mixed martial artist Fedor Emenlianenko has to be considered one of the greatest fighters in the sport’s history.
Emelianenko made his professional MMA debut in May 2000, going 10-1 before first entering PRIDE in June 2002. At PRIDE 25 in March 2003, he defeated Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira to win the PRIDE Heavyweight Championship. His bout with Mirko Cro Cop at PRIDE Final Conflict 2005 in August of that year was named not just Fight of the Year, but Fight of the Decade. Emelianenko first appeared in Strikeforce in November 2009, defeating Brett Rogers. Unfortunately for Emelianenko, his historic 28-fight unbeaten streak came to an end in the promotion when he lost via submission to Fabricio Werdum in June 2010.
Emelianenko originally retired in June 2012, but returned to fighting on New Year’s Eve 2015. He most recently fought at Bellator NYC.
