Fedor Emelianenko joins the unemployment line with Alistair Overeem

It’s no surprise that Strikeforce has cut Fedor Emelianenko following his third straight loss. UFC boss (and confirmed Fedor hater) Dana White made the announcement during today’s UFC 133 press conference while declaring once again that he thought the former pound-for-pound greatest has been over-rated for years.

I’m not sure Fedor was ever over-rated, although it’s clear he’s not the fighter he used to be and his legend has certainly been tarnished. Or rather, he’s exactly the fighter he used to be while everyone else has evolved. Still, you can’t tell me that he doesn’t deserve a place on the Strikeforce roster, even if it’s on the undercard or better yet, as part of some crazy old school super fight. It’s not like the promotion has a lot of big names with fan recognition. Of course, this is just the latest step towards Strikeforce’s demise, which I alluded to yesterday.
