Many within the MMA community were thrilled to hear of the Grand Prix Heavyweight Tournament Strikeforce created to generate interest in their top division and promotion as a whole.
The crown jewel of the entire company is allegedly the best fighter in the world and best heavyweight of all time - Fedor Emelianenko who was coming off of his first real loss in the sport to a journeyman fighter.
Fedor was mocked by many for ending up with Big Foot Antonio Silva as his first round fight.
Big Foot simply dominated Fedor, by smashing his nose in round one and his whole face in round two.
The Last Emperorer's right eye was swollen shot by continuous hammer fists until the doctors decided Fedor couldnt continue and awarded the massive upset to the huge Brazilian.
Long criticized as little more than a Can Smasher, Fedor hinted post fight that this might be the time to walk away from the spot and call it quits .
Certainly with two straight loses to men who couldn't get a job in the UFC if they had naked photos of Dana White banging an ostrich, Fedor's aura of invincibility is gone.
