Fedor did it and more importantly I did it. The Last Emperor has won for the first time since 2009. Although, he wins by decision for the first time since he fought Cro Cop in 2005-meanwhile I successfully woke up at 7am to watch him fight. It feels good. I would like to thank God and my alarm clock.
Tonight/this morning (temporally no one really knows when this fight took place) Fedor took to the M-1 ring and methodically picked apart Jeff Monson with a gaggle of leg licks and expertly denied takedowns. For fifteen straight minutes Fedor had his way with the anarchist and by the end of the match, Monson’s lip was nastily split. He kind of looked like this with a limp.
After the match Vladimir Putin, Fedor’s wife (who kind of looks like a more attractive Sofia Coppola) and his entire M-1 entourage entered the ring in celebration as Fedor declared himself ‘The new Fedor’. Once Fedor is done talking quietly into the mic (some things will never change) he passes it over to Vadim Finkelstein and the M-1 head honcho announces that Fedor Vs. Satoshi Ishii is in the works for the Dream event this New Years Eve.
*Update: The fight is all over the net so we might as well post it.
