Fedor Emelianenko


Full NameFedor Vladimirovich Emelianenko

BornSeptember 28, 1976




Fedor Emelianenko is one of the most legendary fighters in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. He has

picked up a reputation for being one of the best fighters in the world and has been one of the only

fighters who managed to ply his trade outside the UFC for a long time.

Early Life

Early in his life, Fedor lived in Russia and served in the Russian Army for a period. He began his

professional Mixed Martial Arts career in the Russian Top Team. He eventually left the team and

joined RINGS. There he fought for a long time, and also lost his first fight after winning four other

fights. His loss was controversial as it came with a Doctor’s stoppage which not many agreed with.

He continued to fight in RINGS for a few years before joining Pride in 2002.


Fedor Emelianenko stayed in Pride for a large part of his career. Between 2002 and 2006 he fought

in Pride and was undefeated there. He faced the likes of Mark Hunt and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

among others during his time there.


After Pride was sold, Fedor Emelianenko fought for various promotions, including Bodog, Affliction

and Strikeforce. During this time Fedor Emelianenko negotiated with UFC for a fight, but

negotiations fell apart due to Dana White not wanting to do a dual promotion with M1 Global.

Return to Russia, Japan, and Retirement

Fedor returned to Russia and fought there, before going to Japan for a couple of fights before


retiring as a competitor.

Coming out of retirement and present

He returned to action in a fight for Rizin and after a couple of fights joined Bellator MMA. Since then

he has competed in the Bellator Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament. He is set to face Ryan Bader

for the Heavyweight Championship in the final of the tournament at Bellator 214.
