Fedor beats Monson by decision; complete results

by Chris Palmquist | source: mmamania.com

For the first time in more than two years, Fedor Emelianenko has won a fight.

Fedor, the heavyweight who was among the best MMA fighters in the world for most of the last decade, snapped his three-fight losing streak with an easy unanimous decision victory over Jeff Monson at an M-1 Global event in Moscow on Sunday.

The fight wasn't much of a competition at all: Fedor battered Monson with punches and leg kicks, and Monson repeatedly failed in his efforts to take the fight to the ground. Fedor didn't look great, but he did look a whole lot better than Monson.

Fedor Emelianenko unanimous decision over Jeff Monson

Following consecutive losses to Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva and Dan Henderson, Fedor Emelianenko returned to M-1 Global to fight an experienced opponent. However, Jeff Monson had little to offer the Russian and continually failed to get the fight to the mat, where the renowned grappler had his best shot at victory.

Instead, Emelianenko treated the fight much like a kickboxing match, and he dropped Monson on multiple occasions – including three times in a dominant second round –with single shots. However, unlike Strikeforce, where his aggression sometimes proved an unwise gamble, he remained patient, refused to follow his opponent to the mat, and simply chopped him down with stinging leg kicks and lunging punches once they were standing.

By the third round, Monson was battered and bloodied, and his flatfooted fighting style and telegraphed shots made him easy prey.

 If this was gonna be a fix Fedor would end up being the first man to stop Monson is an impressive first round fashion.

Not fixed. Go watch Reid vs Barrett now THAT was a fixed fight. Fedor just dominated and if it was a fix I doubt Fedor knew he certainly didnt look like it.

Just saying that the recipe is there. It was a 'shady' event to say the least. How was their drug testing, what athletic sanctioning bodies oversaw the event? Etc. This is M1 we're talking about, and they are pretty desperate right now.Also, Fedor looked, meh. It's not him I was concentrating on. It was Monson. He was not in the fight. He didn't throw any punches till like 14 minutes in, and those seemed to be just for show.He was there to lose for a paycheck. Though I dont put it past The scum at M1 to say "hey Jeff, you best make our guy look good, we dont want out guy getting hurt" How do you know that in a fix it wouldn't go to decision? Seems just as possible as a KO to me.Not saying it was fixed, just saying the event was shady and suspicious and I wouldn't put it past a bunch of Russian gangster con-men.Would you?
