Twitter is down, so some of you may have missed the earlier bouts, it’s been an event with 5 1st found finishes so far, fun MMA but maybe not the best ‘match making’. M-1 did a great job of rounding up some sexy ring card girls.
Here is the video of Fedor vs. Rizzo while it lasts
265 lbs.: Fedor Emelianenko (235) vs. Pedro Rizzo (243.5)- Fedor Emelianenko defeates Pedro Rizzo by Knockout (Punches, 1st Round, 3:36)
Pedro Rizzo enters the ring to a 106th and Park hip hop style entrance while Fedor enters stoically to some Russian opera or folk music with brother Aleksander. Crazy Pride Lady and our favorite announcer Lenny Hardt announces Fedor with her usual gusto. Epic. Fedor looking trim and Rizzo’s abs are almost visible.
Round 1 begins, this could end fast. They touch gloves, Fedor stalking Rizzo, Rizzo moving fast in and out. Fedor catches him with a strong left. Rizzo shakes it off, pushes forward, We are 3:48 in and Fedor is pushing forward, he catches Rizzo, Rizzo stumbles, regains himself, Fedor throws a leg kick,stutter steps and lands a hooking right to just behind Rizzo’s ear, then unloads several punches, Rizzo crumbles. Rizzo is down, Fedor follows and lands 3-4 more punches on the ground before the ref stops it. Rizzo is on his back and out. It’s over, no surprise here, Fedor wins by KO at 3:36 of the first round. (they announced the time at 1:54)
Rizzo is up, Fedor and him exchange pleasantries followed by Fedor’s entire family entering the ring to hug and kiss him. Fedor looks like he hasn’t even arrived yet, Rizzo looks a bit beat up. Where do both of these guys go now?
