CagePotato How-To #1: ‘How to Beat Fedor Emelianenko’

How To Defeat Fedor With Fabricio Werdum – Watch more Funny Videos

In the first of a hopefully-ongoing series in which MMA fighters instruct you on how to do things you’ll never actually have the opportunity to do, here’s Strikeforce heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum taking us through the triangle/armbar he used to defeat Fedor Emelianenko back in June. (Props to Ruben Vera for putting this together.) Despite Werdum’s accent and liberal interpretation of the word "back," the dude seems like a great instructor. If you live near Huntington Beach, why not drop by Kings MMA and say hello?

Man I can't wait for that rematch!!! Glad UFC wouldn't pay Werdum what he was worth, dumb but glad they did it, hes a great addition to the SF HW Talent and is the only HW with good enough Jiu Jitsu to submit Fedor. Gonna make for some good fights soon.

Fedor BY KO in the rematch!

Hell if your ever in the Venice/Santa Monica area stop by Werdum Combat Team anytime after 6pm and roll or simply say hi. Fabricio is a great instructor and a ubber friendly likeable guy. He is my friend, jits maestro and he won me like almost three grand beatting Fedor in the process.

Fedor the man was defeated with a triangle and a little good fortune by Verdum.

Fedor the legend will be defeated by long drawn-out contract negotiations.

Id like Overeem vs. Werdum. Fedor to fight Bigfoot, or Barnett. Winner faces Winner.

Overeem beats Werdum- KO
Fedor beats either- KO
Fedor beats Overeem in a round 3 comeback- I'd think Submission after withstanding some rough asskicking
Fedor rematches Werdum and wins- KO

Fedor and Overeem both sign for the UFC in late 2011.

Then I wake up.
