MMA - Pros vs Joes Dana White UFC
Lets get ready to Rumble!!!!!!!!!

By 1984, Michael Buffer developed and was using the catchphrase "Let's get ready to rumble" in his announcing, which gained enormous popularity. He began the process of obtaining a federal trademark for the phrase in the 1980s, which he acquired in 1992. By the late 1980s, Buffer was the exclusive ring announcer for all bouts in Donald Trump-owned casinos. Trump said of Buffer, "He's great, he's the choice, he has a unique ability I told my people, We got to have him."


In a effort to create a MMA monopoly Pride was bought out by the UFC and they wanted to force the worlds #1 MMA Fighter stop competing in Sambo as part of his UFC contract.

Sambo is Russia's national martial art.

Of course Fedor did not agree with the terms of the UFC contract.

Then the UFC president Dana White says the 11 time Sambo champion sucks because he did not fight any top MMA fighters for two years.

Prior to his professional career, Emelianenko compiled an amateur MMA record of seven wins with no losses.

Fedor's only so called loss was from an illegal strike and should have been ruled a no contest.

Fedor's true MMA record is 35 wins 0 losses and 2 no contests.

July 19, 2008 Fedor destroyed former UFC Heavyweight champion Tim Silvia in 36 seconds to win the World alliance of Mixed Martial Arts heavyweight title.

Fedor is undefeated and the best MMA fighter of all time!
Age: 31
Fedor Vladimirovich Emelianenko (IPA: ['fʲodər jemilʲja'nʲenkə], Russian: Фëдор Владимирович Емельяненко, sometimes romanized as Fyodor Yemelyanenko) (born September 28, 1976) is a Russian heavyweight mixed martial artist and the last person to hold the PRIDE heavyweight championship.

On July 19, 2008, he defeated Tim Sylvia to become the first ever W.A.M.M.A. heavyweight champion. Emelianenko has been considered the best heavyweight fighter in the world for the last five years by many major publications, including ESPN, the Orange County Register, The Fight Network, the Houston Chronicle, The Wrestling Observer, and Inside MMA.

In addition to holding notable individual wins over K-1 Super heavyweight champion Semmy Schilt, former PRIDE and current UFC champion Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira (twice), Pride 2005 Open weight champion Mirko Filipović, former UFC Heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia, and Mark Hunt, he has won numerous tournaments and accolades in multiple sports, most notably the PRIDE 2004 Grand Prix and the World Combat Sambo Championship on four occasions, as well as medaling in the Russian national judo championships.

His sole loss, via doctor stoppage due to a cut via an illegal blow, is considered a mere technicality, which he decisively avenged.
