‘Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva’ — Live Results + Commentary

(“I never thought I’d say this, but…gimme $500 on the doughy white dude with the perfectly round head.” / Photos courtesy of the Strikeforce Fedor vs. Silva Weigh In Pics gallery on

There’s not much in this world that would compel me to rent a car and drive to New Jersey on a Saturday night, but the return of Fedor Emelianenko and the beginning of the greatest heavyweight tournament since the days of PRIDE certainly qualifies. Yes, folks, yer boy BG is at the IZOD Center tonight, and I’ll be providing some play-by-play for the beefy main card. Until then, I’ll simply be chilling in press row, basking in the power of this laminated card hanging off of my neck. Bro, you wish you were me.

The action begins at 10 p.m. ET with the introduction of all eight grand prix fighters, even though only half of them will actually be competing tonight. Live round-by-round results will be piling up after the jump; refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest. And because I don’t say it enough: Thank you for being here.

Preliminary card quick results:
- Jason McLean def. Kevin Roddy via split decision (29-28 x 2, 28-29)
- Josh LaBerge def. Anthony Leone via TKO (doctor’s stoppage), 5:00 of round 1
- Sam Oropeza def. Don Carlo-Clauss via verbal submission (strikes), 4:10 of round 1
- Igor Gracie def. John Salgado via submission (arm-triangle choke), 3:04 of round 2
- Marc Stevens def. John Cholish (kneebar)

(Quick note- Ben is reporting that the internet signal at the event has gone to shit, so he won’t be able to update live from the event. Instead, I (Chris Colemon) will be disappointing you throughout the event. May God have mercy on us all.)

We are underway with a Pride-worthy introduction! All of the tournament competitors take the stage. HUGE pop for Fedor. We’ve got fireworks; we’ve got Strikeforce-brand letterman jackets(?); ladies and gentlemen, we’ve got a tournament to start.

Valentijn Overeem vs Ray Sefo

R1: Both fighters are throwing heavy strikes. Sefo blocks a high kick from V. Reem. Both men swinging away. Valentijn tries that kick he learned from Seagal, but no dice.  Overeem with a takedown.  On top of Sefo in side control against the fence. Overeem locks up a neck crank and it is all over!

Overeem def Sefo via neck crank, 1:37 of R1

Chad Griggs vs. Gian Villante

R1: These two are going at it! Griggs with some power knees to the body. Villante answers with a couple of hard body kicks.  Big strikes from both guys, with Griggs getting the better of the exchanges.  Griggs rocks Villante, but Gian forces him to the cage. Villante breaks away with an elbow to the head, but they’re swinging away again and Griggs is hurt. Villante shoots for a takedown but gets stuffed.  BIG head kick from Villante, and Griggs is wobbly…what the fuck, this is a good time to stop the fight for a mouthpiece?  Griggs is bleeding, but he floors Villante!  Villante back to his feet, but he’s dropped again by Griggs.  Griggs finishes him with a few strikes on the ground.

Griggs def. Villante via tko, 2:49 of R1

Interviews with the rest of the tournament competitors. Barnett cuts a nice WWE promo about looking to add some more heads to his mantle. Rogers is a little less verbose on the mic.

Shane Del Rosario vs. Lavar Johnson

Johnson kicks things off with a solid right. D-Ros clinches and forces him to the cage. Johnson reverses and get the takedown. Johnson in full guard, landing a few blows. Rosario escapes and they’re back on their feet.  Now Johnson clinches and is looking for another takedown but settles for a knee and a very solid body shot.  Rosario with some shots and Johnson with another good body shot. Rosario is the aggressor on the feet and nails a takedown of his own. Rosario moves from side control to mount. Rosario starting to open up a little, but he’s not landing too much from the mount.Rosario goes for the armbar with 30 seconds left and Johnson taps!

Del Rosario def. Johnson via armbar, 4:31 of R1

I’ve been so busy typing, I just noticed Gus Johnson’s tie. Jesus, doesn’t this guy have his own fashion line or something? With his makeup and Frank’s braces, it’s like an episode of “My Super Sweet 16″.

Sergei Kharitonov vs. Andrei Arlovski

R1: Arlovski with a nice volley kicks, working from the outside.  A few punches from Arlovski. Kharitonov slow to get off.  The two clinch briefly.  A brief stalemate with no one engaging is followed by a few exchanged punches.  Kharitonov lands some body shots from the clinch. Kharitonov is starting to let go with uppercuts.  He knocks Arlovski down and OUT!

Kharitonov def. Arlovski via KO, 2:49 of R1

Judging from the crowd reaction to his post fight comments, there are a lot of Russian speakers in the audience tonight. I’ve heard rumors we’re in for a surprise announcement this evening, so that should be up soon.

There we have it. Gina is back in Strikeforce! I guess that explains her presence at Extreme Couture last week. The announcer babe asks Gina if this is an official announcement. Did she just get here? What the fuck does she think those cameras are pointed at her?

Up next, our main event…

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Antonio Silva

R1 Big Dan in control; let’s hope for the best here. Silva starts us off with a punch, but Fedor is delivering big combos. Silva with a nice solid shot, but Fedor eats it and looks no worse for wear. Silva in a low stance. Fedor throws a punch and Silva forces him into the fence, using that weight advantage to press him into the cage. Wow, pretty quick separation from Big Dan. Silva is on the hunt with some big strikes.  Both men dropping bombs! Fedor is cut and bleeding.  Silva has him clinched against the fence again. Fedor looks like he’s cinching up a guillotine, but Silva drops back and they go down.  Fedor jumps back up, but then follows him to the ground and lands a few shots.  Fedor stands again, but jumps back to half guard. Fedor tries for a kimura, but Silva escapes and we’re back on our feet.  Silva with a nice punch, then he clinches Fedor and takes him back to the cage.  Both men unleash again with both landing.  Silva takes it to the ground once more. Very solid round with action from both men.

R2: Silva with the takedown right out of the gates.  Fedor maintains half guard. Silva working some shots, but Fedor avoiding much damage.  Silva moves into side control, north south, now full mount!  Silva drops some heavy blows and takes his back, but Fedor rolls back.  Fedor takes more abuse and gives his back once more.  Silva goes for a rear naked, but Fedor rolls over once more.  EVEN MORE heavy shots from Silva!  Fedor is in big, big trouble with 2:30 left in the round.  Silva slaps on an arm triangle and gets over to Fedor’s side.  This looks bad for the Last Emperor.  Nope, Fedor escapes!  Silva, sill in half guard, with Fedor looking awfully drained. Silva is spent himself and takes a moment to catch his breath. Are we looking at a 10-8 Silva?  Silva rolls for a knee bar, but the two men trade leg locks as Fedor goes for an ankle.  Silva waives his finger, “No you didn’t!”  What a round for Silva!

Fedor’s eye is totally Koschecked.  Confusion as they get ready for the next round…Big Dan calls off the fight between rounds!  HUGE UPSET as Antonio Silva forces the stoppage and advances to Round 2!

Antonio Silva def. Fedor Emelianenko via doctor stoppage after R2

The fight was called due to Fedor’s eye being completely closed. The crowd sounds displeased. Silva seems happy to shake his haters off in the post-fight interview. As happy as he is right now, I’m sure Dana’s happier.

Fedor states that this could be his last time to step into the cage. No need to explain how crazy of a night this is, so I won’t drag this on any longer. Thanks for having me, it’s been real.

I like little boys.
lesnars_tiny_pecker- February 13, 2011 at 8:20 am
Wow, now that I have calmed down here are some things that need tp be said. Is Fedor the greatest? Hard to say. that is a matter of opinion. I think his best days are behind him. He looked bad in the fight and he won't go to the UFC so he should retire. Light heavy weight? I doubt it. He doesn't look like the kinda guy that would make that cut. Thanks for the memories you big russian teddy bear
Seoul Brother- February 13, 2011 at 8:10 am
Way to keep the comments section spam free, guys. Bravo.
Ballkick- February 13, 2011 at 7:48 am
P.S. frank sorry to involve you in this, I know you are a stand-up guy. which begs the question why you seem to like such a deadbeat obnoxious clown?
Ballkick- February 13, 2011 at 7:41 am
I am not sure because of the "Pirate Nature" of the new forum that you were personally responsible for calling just about everyone here gay. However the poster in question did use one of your favorite tag-lines, so I will assume it was in fact authentically you.
Let me lay your concerns to rest about myself having homosexual tendencies toward men.
I am NOT gay. I also would never engage in any sex with anyone other than a female......and am not in the slightest Bi-curious, or any other variation that you might want to add to your repotiour of insults.

I do not know any of the other people on your hit-list personally so I can not answer for their orientation, however I can conclude by your misrepresentation of me that they are similarly "NOT" gay as well.

I would like to congratulate you Drano for being one of the most consistent posters on CP. You hate everyone and it would seem everything. In fact the only person you seem to hold any respect for here is FBF, you really seem to like him a lot. I'm just wondering why you seem to gravitate toward this one person so exclusively? it's almost as if you like this person in a quixotic way? You know come to think of it,...I guess I am questioning your orientation.
i know I do not speak for everyone you insulted on your list but I am sure they would agree with me when I say,......Go watch your new Michael Lucas DVD.
FaH Q NL15- February 13, 2011 at 7:26 am
Well that shit is fuckin retarded. "War" doesnt have to mean two countries in a conflict nor does it necessarily need to involve armed forces... even though it mostly does. BUT ITS A FUCKIN WORD. You guys were all recently engaged in a "WAR of words"(do you feel disrespected?). Im only 20 and im not in the service.. and probably never will be, I respect the shit out of anyone that even thinks of joining up. But come the fuck on guys. You squabble like fuckin six year olds.

-Pardon the language, but y'all suck

Wow, so glad to be rid of Fraudor and M-1 Global for good. It's so brutally obvious he ducked the UFC's true heavyweights now, play a size game with him and he folds up. Lesnar would've trapped him and donkey konged him, put him against the cage and he looks like guys did in the single digit UFCs...lost and clueless of how to escape.

Never one of my favorite PRIDE guys, played safe American style ground and pound when everybody else met in the middle and throwed down. And as a fan of PRIDE, I at least recognize that their fighters would be (and for the most part, have been) stomped by fighters who train using modern techniques.
djp1988- February 13, 2011 at 7:21 am
@Viva Hate
Totally agree with you.
I love Fedor, but seriously WTF Coker?
Just let the man retire, I'm bummed, but he's done. His legacy is set, he doesn't need to fight anymore. Let the Alternates have the spot they earned. You know what, fuck it. If the Grand Prix can be that back and forth Make MEGAREEM 9000 fight Gus Johnson, because I don't fucking care.

No seriously, someone should make that happen. Maybe Coker knows someone with some pull at SF.
RearNakedSpoon- February 13, 2011 at 7:17 am
It's too easy to hate on Fedor but as someone who never hugged his nuts I must admit he is a great person and did some great things in the sport. I will respect him for that.

However his fans are complete fucking idiots and M1 are absolute wankers and I will take this time to say suck on that you retards!!! haha!!!
Rambohullkamania- February 13, 2011 at 7:14 am
The Strikeforce commentary team makes me want to curb stomp myself.
Viva Hate- February 13, 2011 at 7:07 am
So Fedor is now the first alternate according to Coker and Finkelstein, the legitimacy of the Grand Prix has just been thrown out the window. And what about the alternates they already had who WON fights to be the alternates.
djp1988- February 13, 2011 at 7:03 am

Haha, I find it an honor and a privelege to hug Fedor's nuts.
Turd Furgeson- February 13, 2011 at 6:50 am
I didn't read any of the other comments, because there are like 300 of em, so sorry if anybody else said this, but Fedor and Randy should fight. Duh.
CrushCo- February 13, 2011 at 6:31 am
@dranokills: Sounds like one helluva party!
Wyatt- February 13, 2011 at 6:06 am
@cagepotato I REALLY miss when you had to register with a valid email address to comment. This new open format is just letting in every juvenile waste of human life to the forum. I hope this is all just part of these upgrades you were speaking of.

Fedor needs to leave his management and drop to light heavy, we've all been saying it for years. The sport has simply passed he, and his training methods by. He was able to be an under sized heavyweight the same way Randy Couture was, those days are gone.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing them add another weight class somewhere between 205 and 265. There are some awesome fighters who can give us great fights around 220-230 but just can't hang in there with the guys that cut to get to 265.
corey- February 13, 2011 at 5:56 am
oh wait hah aussiejosh is what that last mesg was for
corey- February 13, 2011 at 5:53 am
So an overweight Light heavy weight losses to a giant who needs to cut to 265..go figure.
Fedor came out swinging for the fences because he knows he doesn’t have the stamina any more…you have to respect him but he could of taken the easy way out there many times during that fight…true warrior and will always have my respect. I don’t personally see it as a sad way to go out…he went out fighting.
He was never going to win this tournament, even this fight so it’s no great loss to the sport as it is.

hahah GSP just jabbed kos, no major damage, Fedor got his head smashed in.... GSP is a clown

Nick Diaz will school that chump
Wiskey Tango- February 13, 2011 at 5:53 am
If Fedor retires, will his interpreter Rosanne Barr go back to acting?

So a man can be the best hw in the world and not have to fight anyone near the top of the ranks?

All of you stupid un educated UFC nut huggers who say Fedor was never as Big as he was made out are stupid CUNTS! You watch no other MMA other Then the UFC!
Fedor had a 50/50 chance of winning the last round! Silva was so fucked! Fedor would have knocked him out! Fedor did not lose the fight the Dr stoped it! That is not a Loss! It was the Drs Fault! Kosheks Eye was just as bad and the fight was alowed to go on!
