Fedor Emelianenko Injures Hand In Victory

According to, WAMMA heavyweight champ Fedor Emelianenko injured his left hand during Saturday night’s bout with Brett Rogers. The Russian successfully made his U.S. primetime debut on “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers,” but it appears to have come at a slight price.

A source close to Team Fedor told the website that the first examination could not determine if Emelianenko had broken bones in his left hand, but he intends to visit a specialist to further assess the damage.

Emelianenko extended his nearly nine-year winning streak last night by defeating Rogers inside the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. MMA’s Terminator caught the former Sam’s Club employee with a vicious right, sending Rogers to the canvas 1:48 into the second round.

After briefly attending a post-fight press conference, a banged-up Emelianenko was sent to a local hospital. He later returned with his left arm in a soft cast that went up to his elbow area.
