Well after just watching the Strikeforce GP opening round, I'd have to say this was a great event with some great fights, great brawls, great submissions and great knockouts. There was also an announced return of one Gina Carano, who has just come off shooting a movie due out this summer.
That was not the biggest surprise to come out of tonight's Strikeforce event, no, the big news is former #1 p4p king Fedor Emelianenko's loss to 5-1 underdog Bigfoot Silva. And it wasn't a quick submission like Werdum achieved, but it was a brutal beatdown where Fedor's face was busted up worse almost as bad as anyone I've seen. It was a horrific sight, a man who was undefeated until early last year being beaten down very convincingly. Fedor looked almost in tears between rounds 2 and 3.
And just like that, referee Dan Mirgliotta called a stop to the fight, and Fedor had now lost 2 in a row after a record 10 year undefeated streak. The unthinkable happened and the only constant thing in MMA is now gone. With that came the even more surprising announcement, which was immediately booed by the fans in the arena, yes Fedor announced he may be retiring following this performance. If this is true, it would be the worst ending to the greatest legacy in the sports short history.
With that I leave you with this Fedor highlight just so you can all see how amazing he truly is.
Now, time for me to get off this thing, I look forward to reading everyone's blogs in the morning!
