Fedor Emelianenko: Tribute to the Greatest Heavyweight of All Time

When it comes to heavyweights in mixed martial arts, none comes close to the brilliance and sustained excellence of Fedor Emelianenko.

Three years ago, I was not as enthusiastic about "The Last Emperor." Then Vitaly, a friend of mine who is of Russian descent, told me about this heavyweight.

"He’s the greatest fighter ever," he told me. I took it as a guy supporting his fellow countryman. Then Vitaly threw some facts at me. He spoke of a nine-year unbeaten streak that included former UFC champions and Hall of Famers. Then he said that Fedor's first loss was one of the great robberies in MMA history.

Still not impressed, I researched everything I could about "The Last Emperor." I came away more impressed than I could have ever imagined.

I discovered that Vitaly was right. Fedor is unarguably the greatest heavyweight of all time. In this slideshow, I’ll prove it.
