In one of the craziest MMA fights ever, Matt Mitrione got the TKO victory over the legend Fedor Emelianenko in the first round. The fight started out with the two heavyweights cautiously feeling one another out. Fedor looked a little tentative to go out swinging right away.
With about 1:30 left in the 1st round, things started to heat up. Both fighters threw simultaneous right hands that connected and both fighters dropped to the canvas. Then it would be a contest of who would scramble first and throw down punches. Mitrione was the fresher of the knocked down fighters and quickly postured up to attack Fedor. There wasn’t much the still dazzed and confused Fedor could do. He sat up and pushed against Mitrione’s legs, but that is foolish against a former NFL player. Matt jumped all over Fedor and landed several bombs before the ref finally put an end to the bout at 1:14.
Now the question everyone will be asking is this: will Fedor Emelianenko retire and leave what is left of his legacy intact? Or, will Fedor try and make a comeback and retire with a win? Who knows, but we all know we want to see Fedor fight again and a rematch with Matt Mitrione would be awesome.
