No, not because of Randy losing last night but this is big in its own right-the World Sambo Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia were today and Fedor Emelianenko, surprisingly, did not win.

Bulgarian Blagio Ivanov beat Fedor Emelianenko by points today in the semifinals of the World Sambo championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. Ivanov then beat Steffan Yoarshil of Germany in the finals. Ivanov made huge headlines in Bulgaria with the win.

Wow, talk about a double whammy. No Fedor-Couture fight with both as champions (could still happen, but now you have to figure the hype machine is dead) and now losing in sambo. Rough weekend.

Some additional info. Fedor lost 8-5 on points. The bulgarian got 4 points for a takedown and then 4 more for holding Fedor down. Fedor got 1 point for a takedown and 4 points for a knockdown.

The point system in combat sambo often leads to the guy taking the most damage winning the match. Nice takedowns can get you a lot of points and give you a victory even if you take a beating on the feet. Sounds like this was the case in this match.

You must be confused. He lost in combat sambo. Not in mma. He still hasn't really lost in mma.

wtf neither has Fedor, Last time I checked Sambo isn't MMA, If Anderson was the Top P4P Fighter then he would have just Finish Cote and not have played with him, a P4P Champ to me doesn't take any opponent lightly and treats them like any other fighter when they fight

i think hotrodttt nailed it, but i would also like to add my two cents on this retarded comment.

Anderson's last MMA loss = 1/20/2006. if you don't want to count his fight with Okami as a loss, the last fight he lost was 12/31/2004

Fedor's last last MMA loss= 12/22/2000. if you don't want to count his first fight with TK as a loss, then his last loss was...ummm...never

back to the topic, i am very surprised Fedor lost, but i mean he lost by points to a guy who trains nothing but combat sambo. it wouldn't be a big deal if Nogueira lost to someone in a BJJ tourney, although i do realize there are differences between the two situations.

I know you're getting killed for this, but I just have to add how funny it is that of all people to spell Karma wrong it was done by someone who is part asian! LOL

fedor losing in combat sambo has nothing to do with him being compared to anderson in mma. i hear anderson lost at madden on his playstation last weekend and then got his ass kicked in paintball...maybe he should be dropped from the pound for pound rankings. they walk around at about the same weight so let them fight at hw and i dont think many people really doubt who would win that one...that means that anderson is better/more willing to cut weight than fedor.
