Fedor steals glory from latest heavyweight villain

SEAL BEACH, California (July 15, 2009) — Even in promotions he doesn’t fight for, Fedor is the star. In the wake of Brock Lesnar’s current heavyweight win, Fedor Emelianenko is the talk of the town.

Fedor is the UFC Heavyweight Champion… well sort of

This weekend Brock Lesnar pretty much cemented his status as the top heavyweight inside the UFC. As always Dana White was asked about Fedor Emelianenko during the post fight press conference.

Shamrock eventually lost the title to Severn, who in turn lost to Mark Coleman in a match to determine the first UFC Heavyweight champion. From there, it is a long winding road that ends with Fedor Emelianenko.
