This is Fedor Emelianenko’s first professional fight. The fight took place at “Rings Russia: Russia vs. Bulgaria” on May 21, 2000. Fedor’s opponent is Martin Lazarov. It was both fighter’s pro debut. Lazarov had one more fight in Rings a year later, and that was his last recorded fight. For some reason the camera man turns the camera to some guy’s reaction in the audience just as the fight ends, so if you’re wondering what happened, Fedor locked on a guillotine at 2:24 of round one, and forced Lazarov to tap out.
