Fedor Emelianenko KO’s Satoshi Ishii in Round 1

Fedor Emelianenko KO’s Satoshi Ishii in Round 1

SHARE

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.

    Wow Fedor’s hands have really improved tremendously.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/mokoko mokoko

    I bett Fedor will KO Overeem or JDS in stand up fight.Roy Nelson culd stand with JDS.Nelson got KO’d from Arlovski

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Jiggoplata Jiggoplata

    well you can say what you want but ishii caught fedors leg, clinched and still couldn’t take him down. and he is an olympic champion in judo!
    I know when it comes to mma ishii is a can and fedor is not one of the best fighters anymore but you can’t deny that he still has some serious skills!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Courtes Courtes

    and both fighters have no history in striking, so what are they thinking standing with them

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BruceLee Bruce Lee

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BruceLee Bruce Lee

    Translation: Thanks Fedor for New Year’s gift. Let all your failures remain in the past year.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BruceLee Bruce Lee

    Huh? Fedor has no history in striking?

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tuputamadre tuputamadre

    can someone be more IGNORANT than you?

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tuputamadre tuputamadre

    Please think at least twice before you talk…Fedor is still the best fighter ever! checkout what he has done, no one has it yet and who knows if so…JDS? still a long way to go if you are one the few that think that way…

    ignorance should be illegal

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tuputamadre tuputamadre

    Fedor is the best fighter ever! period!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Courtes Courtes

    I mean lesnar and ishi

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Jiggoplata Jiggoplata

    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!

    btw I still dont get why you attacked me lol

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/griffin griffin

    ishii was an upcoming prospect this was a solid win for fedor. He looked a lot like his former self, 1 or 2 more wins and to the UFC!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tuputamadre tuputamadre

    So? btw the last fight was herb dean who won that fight…

    Fedor is just the best fighter ever, even if you hating or not…i dont think the whole world cares about what u say dude…

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/tuputamadre tuputamadre

    and I am not attacking you…

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/M1_Global_Gangsta M1_Global_Gangsta

    WOUHOUUUUU ! Fedor is back ! hahahahahahahahahahhaha So proud to be russian ! Happy new year everyone by the way

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/lesnarism lesnarism

    yeah ask frank mir

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MikeDrahota Mike Drahota

    I’m not sure Ishii should have been in there against Fedor tonight, but man that was a nice straight right, left hook, right hook combo by the Last Emperor! Like always, he needs to move to the UFC to further cement his great legacy rather than tarnish it as the last year-and-a-half did.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Brasil Brasil

    Fedor and big Nog are my two favorite figthers but imo at this point his victories dont mean anything if they are not in the UFC … Go to the big show and show them all who you really are… M1 sucks!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/KeithFarrell KeithFarrell

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/KeithFarrell KeithFarrell

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Brasil Brasil

    Imagine Fedor vs Cain…. F**ing awesome.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/M1_Global_Gangsta M1_Global_Gangsta

    Tuputamadra. You’re my friend man ! I agree Fedor is still the best FOREVER !

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/M1_Global_Gangsta M1_Global_Gangsta

    I agree well said !

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/highlife highlife

    he is a can like Lesnar then.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/partyboy partyboy

    i think this proves beyond any reasonable doubt that fedor is the #1 HW and p4p fighter on the planet…ishii is like the greatest fighter ever, better than a jon jones anderson silva hybrid….m-1 are so wonderful

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MikePerryman Mike Perryman

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MikePerryman Mike Perryman

    How did you translate that Bruce? All I got was a couple of backwards N’s and the word HOBO!
    Nice translation though.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BruceLee Bruce Lee

    It would seem so Tuputamadre. Way to go!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DKMcGrath DKMcGrath

    Guest YAWN!!!Satoshi Whoshi?and the Munson..WoW lets exaggerate how great it is to have a good record against nobodys and hasbeens… Valasquez would completely dominate Fedor.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BruceLee Bruce Lee

    Google translate. It’s good.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DKMcGrath DKMcGrath

    You can always count on that

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MikePerryman Mike Perryman

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/KeyboardContender Keyboard Contender

    M1 would probably kill Fedors whole family if he left them

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/DKMcGrath DKMcGrath

    He one of the best heavyweight wrestlers in the world not entertainment wrestling were talking collegiate wrestling.Fact!Just cause Allistar beat him like he owed him money,you can’t take away all his accomplishments.I hope your being sarcastic cause you sound ignorant.

    How come so many people like to take a bite out of Fedor always making sure people know they think hes a can after whoever he fights but shinya aoki always fights non ranked fighters but is always a high ranked lightweight on lowkick

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/ClosetCasey ClosetCasey

    Fedor says Ishii is soft like woman.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MikePerryman Mike Perryman

    Rite on! I figured you prob spoke like 3 or 4 differant languages being the distinguished gent you are. Ha!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/asdf asdf

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/azzkika azzkika

    Nice to see 2012 will have as many haters as 2011. Can’t you at least ****ing appreciate the balls it takes to actually fight you cowardy custards? Ya’ll would be chuffed with a win against anybody, there world’s worst can, but keep on hating on a chubby bloke who has a great record of winning fights.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/azzkika azzkika

    All these experts on who who is decent competion. Without wikepedia you probably couldn’t name a single opponent of Ishii’s other than Fedor.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/azzkika azzkika

    PS; Someone made a comment on another thread how lowkick has really gone downhill the last year with so many idiots. This thread proves it to be right in some ways, but at least the guys putting many hours producing articles and keeping us fans informed are doing a great job, so keep up the good work in 2012 joey and the rest, you’re much appreciated. Still my favourite MMA site despite the fools.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/apocalypse123 apocalypse123

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    Fedor is still top ten HW. There are guys that can beat him but there is no one that he can’t beat on any given night.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    I agree that Ishii was not a can as some put it but Fedor is never going to the UFC. I wish he was but he isn’t.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    Incorrect

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/mokoko mokoko

    Fedor haters usualy are Fake wrestling fans who kame with Lesnar hoppe they go with him. Dana’s badest man on the planet for shooting Reindeer.When Overeem destroys JDS we will see how weak UFC HW devision was.Overeem got more fights than UFC’s JDS,Cain,Lesanar and Carwin combiend.Kharitanov will rape Overeem again in stand up fight.In Fedors last fight peole forget that Fedor was the one droped Hendo to the ground and Fedor was robbed by the Ref and UFC

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MMAMachine MMAMachine

    I think that’s the point…

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MMAMachine MMAMachine

    I get what you’re saying, but Jim Hettes sure made Judo look effective against Nam Phan.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/mokoko mokoko

    Lesnar geting a titel shot at 2-1 is like Herschel Walker geting titel shot against Overeem in SF.If Fedor fight’s 4-1 figter he is can and Lesnar 2-1 is not.Lesnar’s first fight the gratest figter all time Kim Min Soo who was 2-5 and now 3-7+Heath Herring title shot how bigger can can you get

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Cookie77 Cookie77

    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??

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Kackvogel Kackvogel

    why arent you happy to see a nice ko??? overeem was winning against a can!!! ishi is a “olympic” gold medalist, lesnar a wrestler with a great record in the “USA”!!! the hate against fedor is crazy!!!

    fedor is one of the greatest fighters in the history of MMA!! he has nothing to proof!!!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/fightgame fightgame

    Just wondering… Now that Fedor is 35-4 and Lesnar is 5-3 does anyone else care to compare them? Where are the UFC fan boys?

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/PinPointBrawler PinPointBrawler

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Sambo82 Sambo82

    I can’t believe there were 21 morons who actually sharped Mokoko’s ignorant comment. Nothing surprises me anymore.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Sambo82 Sambo82

    @IChokePeople He can beat anyone in the world on any given night. Is that why all he does is fight cans? People talk about how overhyped Brock was but Fedor has been all hype bs since pride fell. Lesnar would beat Fedor btw

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/sbond sbond

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/vengod vengod

    fixed?Fedor would never accept such a win.What about lesnar?

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/IChokePeople IChokePeople

    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.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/KeithFarrell KeithFarrell

    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.
