Review: in the same event organized by Strikeforce in which there was the highly anticipated fight Fedor vs Silva, there has been one of the toughest mma fights of 2011: Chad Griggs vs Gian Villante. Both fighters came to the fight with only one defeat, they start with tough series of punches, but Chad Griggs seems to be more accurate until an unexpected high-kick of Villante seems to reverse the situation, but Griggs continues with his heavy punches until the final knockout.

Review: Antonio Silva vs Fedor Emelianenko has been a good fight as everyone expected. Fedor have not fight for almost eight months (when he was defeated for the first time by Fabricio Werdum) and Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament seemed the way to redeem himself and maybe find Werdum another time. But Fedor Emelianenko had to fight versus Antonio Bigfoot Silva, Brazilian fighter with a powerful physique and just two defeats, one with Pele and the other with Fabricio Werdum (unanimous decision). The first round between Fedor vs Silva is won by Emelianenko that seems to keep control of the fight, but in the second round Silva takes courage and brings to the ground Fedor that suffer the actions of the Brazilian throughout the round. The signs on the face of Fedor Emelianenko are obvious, so the doctor stopped the fight. Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix Tournament loses its main fighter and, as declared after the fight, this could have been the last cage fight of the great Fedor Emelianenko. Antonio Silva vs Fedor Emelianenko could enter in the history of MMA, a fight nice to see, very technical for the division of the two fighters. Watch the video! Read more
