Fedor Bloodied but Victorious

By:

fedor THUMBTonight on Strikeforce, Brett Rogers gave Fedor Emelianenko more of a fight than any recent opposition.  Rogers even bloodied the bridge of the Emperor’s nose during this fight.  However, the end result was the same and the previously unbeaten Rogers was given his first loss by Fedor. 

In other fights, Jake Shields won the Middleweight title with a decision victory over Bully Beatdown’s Jason “Mayhem” Miller.

  1. It’s true, Emelianenko looked very human again tonight. I was impressed yet again with his precision fight-ending bombs, but if he needs to get picked apart for all or most of a round (as he has in his last two fights), is that sustainable?

    That said, the constant drama his recent scrapiness creates makes for amazing fights to watch.

    I think Fedor should have an easier time with Werdum (http://bcmmafan.blogspot.com/2009/11/hw-fights-on-saturday-are-start-of-mini.html), but the real test of Emelianenko’s shot-for-shot style will be Alistair Overeem. I’m psyched-up already just thinking about that fight’s potential for awesomeness.
