Today was the first day of the Russian Combat Sambo Championship and here are the results:

As predicted, Fedor Emelianenko easily won all of his three fights. None of his opponents in this Russian championship forfeited as it has happened before in world and European championships, to the credit of our fighters.

In his first fight, Fedor quickly attacked, after a combination of strikes he took his opponent down and submitted him. The fight was 35 seconds long. His second fight was even shorter - Fedor broke his opponent's nose on the 10th second.

The final fight against Stanislav Shushko took a little bit longer. Stanislav tried to keep Fedor at a distance using his height advantage, but Fedor closed the distance with a combination, went for a throw and a holddown. Then the fighters ended up in standing position again and the situation happened again - a combination of strikes from the champion, a throw, but this time Fedor finished his attack with a submission and won at 1 minute and 1 seconds.

And this sport is what kept him out of the UFC. All of it so he could beat three guys in 2 mins. I think that shows u what kind of competitor he is. He's content with dominating nobodys and not coming to the big stage to prove what i think he can do

I disagree with the above. Not an interesting find, and no I don't care. Fedor needs to fight real competitors not amateurs in sambo matches.

amateurs?

no need to hate on the thread just because you are dissatisfied with the situation of a fighter.


This is one of the best news articles ive seen posted lately.

Everybody doesnt have your opinions, if you cant structure them appropriately keep them to yourself.

Im always suprised at how Fedor dominates Sambo but not quite as much his MMA fights. I sometimes wonder if all these bouts are legitimate . . .

Its a different rule-set, but I've seen a lot of his matches, and they all look legit. He just completely outclasses every single person he fights.

You do realize they are some of the best sambo fighters in the world. Sambo is very important to his country, Putin attends these matches, and I believe he was a sambo practitioner in his day.

the only thing that separates these guys from Fedor, is that Fedors CAREAR is fighting, there for he trains probably 2x more than them. when the only thing u have to do is train train train, u have a great advantage over the ones that train when they can.
