Fedor Emelianenko Ends Losing Streak With Win Over Jeff Monson
Fedor Emelianenko put an end to his three fight losing skid today in Moscow, Russia, by working his way to a unanimous decision win over former UFC contender Jeff Monson.

Today’s card also saw Daniel Weichel take M-1 Global’s lightwieght championship, by knocking out Jose Figueroa in the first round.
