Fedor Emelianenko ended 2011 on a high note, defeating Satoshi Ishii via KO in Round 1, as part of DREAM's New Year's Eve fight card at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Ishii looked strong during the first seconds of the fight, unleashing several striking combinations and leg kicks that troubled "The Last Emperor". However, when the pair clinched, Ishii was unable to execute a takedown, giving Emelianenko the opportunity to continue the fight in stand-up.

The Russian unleashed combination after combination, as Satoshi Ishii started to enter the so-called "survival mode". Finally, Emelianenko unleashed a powerful combination, catching Ishii with a right hook that dropped the Olympic Gold Medalist to the canvas. The referee had no choice but to stop the action, awarding Emelianenko his second consecutive victory.

Emelianenko is 2-2 in 2011, with losses to Antonio Silva and Dan Henderson, and victories over Jeff Monson and Satoshi Ishii. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for "The Last Emperor" in 2012.

    If the UFC is the goal to either cement the legacy or earn some money, he will have to break with the notion of "co-promotion" with M1. (No our local gangsta but the promotion company).



    That's the stumbling block. I think it won't happen because of M1.

    Федор является совладельцем компании М-1. Так же как Оскар Де Ла Хойя является владельцем своей компании. Никто никогда не продаст свою компанию. Федору уже не 25 и даже не 30. У него свой бизнес. Но и драться он не забывает. Это его жизнь.

    Man people forget all the shit Fedors accomplished, hes beat Big Nog, Cro Cop, Mark Coleman, while they were all in their PRIME. Big Nogs left his prime and he still became interm champ and still has some descent ability. That shows u just how good Fedor was.

    Fedor is good but c-mon!! He is still fighting "tune-up" fights mentally regaining some of that mojo that he used to have. He's a lot of work to do if he wants back into the top ten on any list; whether it be P4P, or Heavyweight.

    I dont think he is the number one fighter in the world. He has won two fights in a row beating jeff monson and satoshi and before that he lost to hendo. He wont be ranked in the top 10 again until he fights in the ufc. But on the other hand, in my opinion, he is probably the most accomplished heavy weight fighter ever close to cro cop and big nog. He is a true champion and deserves everyones respect. I hope to see him in the UFC soon and fighting better top MMA fighters.

    Lesnar was an NCAA Division I champion before he got into fake wrestling. He was 2-1 when he faced Randy, but Ishii was 4-1-1 when he faced Fedor. He still got knocked out, and Brock still beat Couture, I don't see what your point is, you've defeated yourself with your own argument.

    Odd as it might sound I actually agree with Mokoko to some degree here. Fedor is much faster than either Overeem or JDS and with them being primarily strikers there is a good chance that a fight with Fedor V one of them would end up a lot like Fedor V Cro Cop. People have largely written Fedor off due to his recent losses but he can still beat anyone in the world on his best night.

    Your comment lacks intelligence. Stylistically Fedor is a very bad fight for Lesner. He is too fast and hits too hard. He would KO Lesner in the first minute 9 times out of ten. The rest of what you wrote is just stupid and also quite revisionist.

    So... how is that any different to what i've said? I think you should think three times before you talk... I agree he is the best fighter ever. But currently? His three losses in a row maybe do not effect his overall status but they sure as hell do affect his current status! Don't get me wrong I am a very big Fedor fan and have always been. But you can't say that he is still the best fighter!

    It's all in the name he uses. It is an agressive slang term in spanish about one's mother. It translates roughly into "Your Mom's a blank" (Help me out Bruce).

    Fill it in Jiggo, I don't think it is anything against you. This cat just has mad love for Fedor! Best to stop poking the bear.

    Glad to see Fedor win again but people claiming this means he is back need to think about it. He is 2-3 in his last 5 fights and his 2 wins were against true LHWs and one loss (Hendo) is a LHW too. Fedor's only recent fights with true HWs are borderline top 10.



    Fedor won't be successful in the UFC unless he goes to LHW, his high ranked HW days are over.

    Also congrats to him beating Ishii but Ishii is basically a mma can at the moment, he only has a handful of fights and none of them were decent competetion.



    Yes he is a master of Judo, getting the gold in the olympics recently but in my humble opinion, Judo isn't very effective in mma. Has a true Judo player ever went far in elite MMA? If so very few.

    I have extreme respect and love for Judo has a sport and you use a good hip toss or any Judo throw now and again in MMA but you can't get far usnig it as your main weapon, you can do it with wrestling but not Judo. I think it's just a completely different world going from Gi wearing Judo competetion to no-Gi MMA.

    Yea your right he did put in some sick takedowns but I feel it's only because Nam doesn't have a good wrestling base. Also Hettes only used a few throws, and only to get him down there. Once he got him down it was all BJJ and wrestling.

    I just think that if all you have is Judo going into a fight then if yoru opponent can wrestle or has decent BJJ, in MMA you are most likely at a disadvantage.



    This is just my opinion and I'm sure there are exceptions. Want to see Ronda Rousey against top wrestlers or BJJ fighters in strikeforce to see if her Judo is still as dominant.

    The win was good. Fedor looked fast, powerful and bouncy like he did a few years ago, also showed some great hips against an olympic judo medalist. The thing is, who is he going to fight? Majority of the best HW's are under Zuffa contract. I'm hoping for the Barnett fight.

    Fedor is still amazing but this fight was not. I am not one of these people that thinks Ishii is a can and I honestly do not think that size is any bigger of an advantage than speed or technique. That said, Ishii looked like a MW in that fight and Fedor really needs to be fighting only true HWs at this time.

    I'm not going to say that Fedor is back at the top.. BUT what I will say is that he has the momentum going into 2012 and with momentum comes confidence and a confident Fedor is a very dangerous Fedor. I just hope that he keeps fighting and winning in 2012 and maybe just maybe in the middle of 2012 he makes a move to the UFC..



    Can we all say Fedor UFC HW Champion 2012? or is it too early?? Well I'll say it "Fedor UFC HW Champion 2012" I can only hope right??

    Possible, maybe. It isn't going to happen though. Fedor is never going to the UFC. Even if he wanted to Dana wouldn't sign him. If Fedor was to take the UFC HW title at this point (which he is capable of doing) it would make a mockery of Dana's Fiefdom.

    None of Lesner's fights were fixed, he just had some very stupid luck and some good matches stylistically combined with a very early title shot. That said you would have to be stupid to believe that Ishii threw the fight.
