    News - Fedor Emelianenko loses decision in semifinals | MMAFighting.com

    A day after Brock Lesnar made his case for being the number two heavyweight in the world, Fedor Emelianenko, the number one heavyweight, suffered a rare loss in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    Fedor lost in the semifinals of the over 100kg division at the 2008 World Combat Sambo Championships. Fedor lost on points 5 to 8 to Bulgarian wrestler Blagoi Ivanov, who advanced to win the gold medal.

    Fedor, a World Combat Sambo champion the past three years, went home with the bronze medal.

    In professional mixed martial arts, Fedor is 29-1-1. His sole loss was due to a cut 17 seconds into the fight. Fedor would avenge the loss five years later.

    Combat Sambo is a popular Russian sport which combines throws with limited striking and submissions.

    Fedor won his previous encounter with Ivanov earlier this year.

    Shenanigans! But props to that Bulgarian wrestler. You really have to earn it to beat Fedor at Sambo.
