Video: Fedor's 10-year MMA winning streak ends

Fedor Emelianenko is arguably the greatest heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter in the world.  The 230-pound Russian "lost" in his fifth pro fight after a cut on his head was deemed too severe for the bout to continue.  That was a decade ago.

Since then, "The Last Emperor" had reeled off 28 straight victories, winning Rings, Pride, and WAMMA world titles in the process.  But last night, Fedor tapped out to UFC cast-off Fabricio Werdum.

After failing in 2007 to land Fedor in the Octagon, UFC President Dane White seemed quite pleased.  Not only did the czar of Zuffa witness his main competitor's top draw go down in defea, he also allegedly flexed his muscle to shrink Fedor's payday just before the bout.

If you've got two minutes, you've got time to see a shocking Strikeforce upset after the jump.
