Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum Video: Emelianenko Taps Out in First Round

Fabricio Werdum defeated Fedor Emelianenko on Saturday night in what may have been the biggest upset in MMA history at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum. The video is here.

Fedor entered the fight with a 31-1 record, and the one loss was highly controversial, as he was cut with an illegal elbow strike. But there's nothing controversial about this one: Werdum is the best Brazilian jiu jitsu practitioner in the world, and he showed it by sinking in both a triangle choke and an arm bar and forcing Fedor to tap at the 1:09 mark of the first round.
