What Would A Third Straight Loss Mean For Fedor Emelianenko?

Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko is arguably the best MMA fighter of all time. From May 2000 to June 2010, Emelianenko was unstoppable.

His record before facing Fabricio Werdum last June was 31-1-1. Thanks to the controversy that filled his only loss until that point, many considered Emelianenko undefeated.

When Emelianenko stepped into the cage against Werdum, many believed his streak would continue. Unfortunately one of the biggest upsets in MMA history happened instead.

Emelianenko dropped Werdum shortly after the bout started. But the skillful Brazilian Jiu Jitsu expert that his is, Werdum was able to trap Emelianenko in a triangle and arm bar, forcing the former PRIDE champion to tap.

The shocking loss made the once unstoppable Emelianenko look human.

In his next fight Emelianenko faced a much larger Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in a quarterfinal match of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. This would not be the first time Emelianenko faced a much larger opponent.

Despite the first round being close, Silva pounded away at Emelianenko on the ground causing his right eye to shut in the second. Doctors stopped the match inbetween rounds.

Emelianenko is looking to avoid a third straight loss when he takes on Dan Henderson in July.

If Emelianenko loses it could mean two things; the end of his Strikeforce run and the end of his Career.

Since Zuffa now owns Strikeforce, it is only a matter of time before Emelianenko gets cut. It is no secret that Dana White does not care for the Russian star or his management.

Although he is a legend, I would not be surprised if Zuffa got rid of him on the three strike rule. The fact that M-1 Global is hard to deal with is another reason why Emelianenko could get cut fast.

Emelianenko could also be done with the sport all together. After the Silva fight, Emelianenko teased that he could possibly retire. Although he is only 34, he has been through many wars and may be ready to call it quits.

If Emelianenko loses it’s a sign that "The Last Emperor" could be on the last legs of his career.

A win for Emelianenko on the other hand could put his career back in the place he has been for so long; the top.

Firstly Vadim Finkelstein seems to have NO Respect for the Greatest MMA & Sambo Champion in the World. Just cause he had 3 losses does not mean Fedor has lost his SKILLS. Vladim Finkelstein thinks that if Fedor looses again he should retire although he says its Fedors choice. Of course its Fedor choice NO one has a right to tell Fedor the King of MMA to retire How DARE you. And People make mistakes. Werdum & Silva are nothing Fedor has fought way bigger & Tougher fighters. Look at what Fedor did to Brett Rogers, Kevin Randleman, Andrei Arlovski, Tim Silva, Mark Coleman, Mark Hunt, Mirko Crocop, Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera, Gary Goodridge, Heath Herring, And lots more. Fedor has DESTROYED way better fighters than Werdum or Silva and he will beat Dan Henderson. Fedor Destroyed everybody for 10 years and Dana White must be confused when he insults Fedors abilities. Fedor Emilianenko is truly the greatest Mixed Martial Artist in the World and dont forget he is also a Judo & Sambo Champion. Fedor has Blackbelts in Judo & Sambo and he is a true Warrior a Humble intelligent fighter with Grappling Kickboxing & Boxing Skills. Fedor is also an excellent Mixed Martial Arts Instructor & an Ambassador to the Sport. Fedor is always Respectful & Humble, Yet the UFC always seems to insult him. I guess they are jelouse due to the fact that Fedor has turned down the UFC. Well maybe if UFC treated Fedor with Respect then maybe things might have been different. But UFC does not deserve Fedor.
