Fedor Emelianenko Eye Pictures – Swollen Shut After Big Foot Beatdown
MMA heavyweight superstar Fedor Emelianenko surprisingly lost in the first round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix on Saturday night. Antonio Big Foot Silva used his height, weight, and overall size advantage to push Fedor around, especially in the second round. After Silva got on top of the Russian, he went to town raining down blows on Emelianenko’s head. The end product was this damage to Fedor’s right eye that ended up swollen shut:
Even with the shut eye I’m still surprised the fight was stopped. Fedor’s eye had shut during the second round yet he still fought Silva off and was even trying to crank his foot for a submission at the very end of it. The ringside doctor played it safely and called a stop to the fight, leaving Fedor’s future in doubt. It also leaves us with this pressing question: which was in worse shape, Fedor’s eye, or Antonio Margarito’s eye after the Pacquiao fight?
