Emelianenko has earned numerous MMA accolades over the years, including; 2008 Submission/Beatdown of the Year awards, 2009 Knockout of the Year awards, Heavyweight of the Year awards, Fighter of the Year awards and 2000s Fight of the Decade awards. All the major sports website by the likes of ESPN, Bleacher Report, Sports Illustrated, SB Nation and among other publications, named him as the greatest heavyweight of all time.

However despite being considered as the GOAT by everyone he hasn’t fought in world’s biggest and most recognised Mixed Martial Organisation, the Ultimate Fighting Championship(UFC).

However, even Fedor knows that his time is nearing and he can’t keep fighting for long and was recently asked during Bellator 214 media week if he had any regrets over not fighting in the UFC.

“Absolutely no regrets, I don’t have any wish or desire to have fought in UFC. I like being in Bellator.”

“For me the fame of UFC, that’s more made up and Bellator has a very good relationship with their fighters and they treat them well.” He said.
