Fedor Emelianenko (36-5, 1 NC)
“The Last Emperor” is considered to be the greatest heavyweight fighter the sport of MMA has ever seen. Emelianenko boasted one of the most impressive unbeaten streaks in the history of MMA, not losing a bout between 2001 and 2009. A multi-time world champion in MMA and Sambo, including a stint as PRIDE heavyweight champion, Fedor recently returned to the sport after a brief hiatus, accumulating two decisive wins since his return to action. The Russian-born fighter’s resume includes victories over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mirko Cro Cop, Mark Coleman, Mark Hunt and Andrei Arlovski.
