Video: Fedor Emelianenko Knocks Out Pedro Rizzo in Russia


Fedor Emelianenko‘s hard work at the playground has paid off once again. Earlier today at an M-1 Global event in St. Petersberg, Russia, Fedor met Pedro Rizzo in his possible retirement fight, and knocked him out in the first round. “The Last Emperor” looked focused and light on his feet, and the stoppage — which came less than a minute-and-a-half into the fight — was classic Fedor. Watch as Emelianenko lands a crushing overhand right that topples Rizzo, then bounces the Rock’s head off the mat with some savage ground-and-pound.

Notable fight-fan Vladmir Putin was sitting ringside, and even more impressive was the appearance of Fedor’s brother Aleksander Emelianenko in his corner, so I guess those two knuckleheads have patched up their differences, which is nice to see. Without family, what do we really have, y’know?

Fedor should fight Barnett that would have been a sweet goodbye fight. Rizzo was just too easy to hang em up.

Dana should allow Overeem to fight Fedor while waiting.

Awesome finish! Fedor will be missed. I just wish he spoke better English so he could do commentary on HDnet with The Voice.

*Some* fight fans should get of their buts and try to run a quarter mile. Then check your time compared to 10 years ago. When you're done crying, show a little respect and realize everyone gets old, not only americans.

Fedor could beat Hendo 9 times out of 10,same thing with Werdum.
As for BigFoot,Fedor wasnt himself,CLEARLY...I'm not saying he would beat BigFoot today but thing would happen differently.
Fedor his way pass his prime,but I would put my money on him vs Mir....Yep,thats right.
But things have not changed,his management team still make a clown out of him,and most MMA fans have a short memory...(remember Hendo vs Shields??? Hendo was supposed to be over!Its the same ol'...)

......He's no longer the best in the world. But still a damn tough night for anyone in any weight division IMO. Sad that we will never see him in the UFC. Thanks for the memories Fedor.

Dude. It's Pedro Rizzo. Not as bad a has-been as Tim Sylvia, but seriously.

In Russia, Taco fuck you.

Yawn. Seeing Fedor beat a washed-up has-been that hasn't fought in years is about as significant as birdshit on the sidewalk.
