It may have been the most shocking MMA loss in history. Fedor suffered the first real loss of his career to Fabricio Werdum at a Strikeforce event in San Jose, California Saturday night. He had technically lost one previous fight but that was due to a stoppage caused by cuts. This was actually the first time that Fedor had tasted defeat inflicted on him by another fighter.

Saying, “I never wanted to be an idol or a God,” Fedor Emelianenko graciously accepted the defeat in a post-fight interview. Fedor’s loss comes just a week before the Brock Lesnar/Shane Carwin heavyweight championship match at UFC 116. With Fedor now having lost, the winner of that fight along with up and comers like Cain Velasquez and certainly Werdum, there may actually be an argument over “best MMA heavyweight” .
