A lot of controversy from the big UFC pay-per-view event on Saturday night. The short version is that former WWE heavyweight-turned MMA fighter Brock Lesnar (5-1-0)forgot he's now in a legitimate sport; and became the personification of white trash on steroids. He showed poor sportsmanship (refusing to tap gloves at start of match), no respect for MMA (showing zero MMA or even wrestling ability in the fight itself), and no self-control that a true champion would have. See video here and article here. Check out his outstanding post-fight comments here. Anyway... the whole point to this is that there's a heavyweight fighter that doesn't fight for the UFC. His name is Fedor Emelinenko (30-1-0). He has one loss in the past 9 years, and even that was due to a cut - not a knock-out. More importantly, he acts like a champion: humble, soft-spoken, and respectful of his opponents - both before and after he smashes their face into red goo. Here's a short video introduction a man all of Russia knows by one name - Fedor. If you like it I strongly recommend watching the YouTube documentary about him here. He is, simply, the baddest man on the planet.
