Watch Fedor Emelianenko Completely Destroy Opponent In Comeback Fight


This was Fedor’s 40th professional MMA fight, and his opponent’s third. They gave his opponent, Singh Jaideep, a fight in October after announcing that he would be fighting Fedor to try to pad his record a bit, because 2-0 looks twice as good as 1-0! Now it’s 2-1, but there’s no shame in losing to one of the greatest fighters to ever step inside the ring.


The downside is that with Fedor crushing a can, we don’t really get to see how he would look against top-level competition, which is what everybody wants to see. This was clearly a tune-up fight, so hopefully we’ll get a chance to see Fedor against a more evenly-matched opponent in 2016. Or, it might just be about a payday and not about fighting the sport’s best competition, and you can’t really blame him for that either.

You've gotta give this guy credit for stepping in there, win or lose.

Rizin was hoping to re-capture the magic of Pride, and they really didn’t do a bad job for their first event. There were all sorts of weird spectacles, freak show fights, ref cams, complete mismatches, and even a fight or two that looked totally thrown – so Japanese MMA is alive and well, it appears.


But you’re here to watch Fedor demolish his opponent, so check out this clip:
