Strikeforce Fedor vs Werdum Results - Fedor Emelianenko Taps Out to Fabricio Werdum

The biggest upset in MMA history happened tonight.

Fabricio Werdum trapped Fedor Emelianenko in a triangle- arm bar and forced the tap in the first round.

The world's #1 heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko put his reputation, but no title belt, on the line against Brazilian jiu jitsu ace Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce: Fedor vs Werdum.

Going into the bout, a great deal of controversy swirled about whether or not Fedor, riding a ten year undefeated streak, remains the undisputed beat heavyweight in the game with the UFC's Brock Lesnar, Shane Carwin, Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez rising fast.

Fedor appeared unphased by the controversy, displaying his usual preternatural calm in the cage. Big John McCarthy, another MMA legend in exile from the UFC, reffed the match.

Werdum landed first with a glancing leg kick but it wasn't long before Fedor dropped him with a hard series of punches. Fedor lept into Werdum's guard and quickly found himself trapped by the former jiu jitsu world champion. Werdum locked up a triangle and used it to get the arm bar.
