With Fedor Emelianenko taking on Satoshi Ishii this weekend at Dream’s NYE event, we at Inside Fights want to take a look back at Fedor’s legendary career with some of his biggest fights. Up today is his first of three legendary fights with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in Pride.
Big Nog back when they first fought was the unquestioned best heavyweight in the world. He was still fresh off his epic comeback victory over Bob Sapp and had beaten everyone of note in the division. Fedor was recently signed from RINGS and a heavy underdog to Big Nog.
