Unbeatable for ten years until being finalized by Fabricio Werdum with an armlock inside the triangle, Fedor Emelianenko saw himself defeated in three fights in a row (Antonio Pezão, Dan Henderson) and people said the Russian would retire.
This Sunday, the once Emperor of MMA got back to action against Jeff Monson at Global M-1. With the crowd on his side, Fedor beat Monson during the three rounds, always with good combinations of strikes, overthrowing the American with an uppercut in the second round. With the victory, the Pride legend got his 32nd victory of his career.
