Could this be the greatest upset in MMA history?
This victory by Strikeforce heavyweight Fabricio Werdum over Fedor Emelianenko has to be ranked as the biggest upset in mixed martial arts history. You can place this fight before Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou upset of Antonio Rogerio Nogueria at Pride 33. Or Matt Serra victory over Georges St. Pierre at UFC 69 and Nick Diaz win over Takanori Gomi at Pride 33. How about Kevin Randleman win over Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic at Pride Total Elimination in 2004.
This is like Buster Douglas win over Mike Tyson.
This is also a huge lost for Strikeforce and Fedor Emelianenko. This upset pretty much kills the pay per view for Alistair Overeem versus Emelianenko for the heavyweight belt. Which I think would have been even a larger ppv than UFC heavyweights Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin fight.
Dana White is such a class act, he just twitted :D
Will Fedor just fade out of the heavyweight conversations now?
Do you believe he is done?
