Fedor Emelianenko, the long time MMA heavyweight king, returned to action last night on DREAM's New Year's Eve card against Satoshi Ishii. Ishii looked small (having previously dropped to light heavyweight) but more importantly looked far too slow as Fedor was able to beat him to the punch and use leg kicks and punch flurries to throw off the former Olympic medalist.
In the end it was a right hand down the center and a right hand to the ear that dropped Ishii and Fedor didn't even bother to follow up with strikes as Ishii lay on the mat simply covering up.
Here's the full video:
Round 1: Ishii slips on a leg kick. Fedor lands his leg kick. Fedor throws another leg kick and Ishii catches it. Fedor lights Ishii up with a combination working the head an body. He follows up with a straight right down the tube. Fedor drops Ishii with a combination and the referee calls it.
Official Result: Fedor Emelianenko defeats Satoshi Ishii by Knock Out
