The last time Fedor Emelianenko fought a former UFC heavyweight champion, he beat him in 36 seconds. This time it took three minutes, but it was still decisive. Emelianenko knocked out Andrei Arlovski on Saturday at Affliction and M-1 Global’s Day of Reckoning in Anaheim.

Arlovski had some success early. He was beating Emelianenko to the punch and also landing leg kicks. In fact, a stiff front kick backed the WAMMA heavyweight champion into the corner and Arlovski, thinking perhaps he had him hurt, began to launch a flying knee. Right then Fedor countered with a right hand that stopped Arlovski in midair and left him lying face-first on the canvas. The official time was 3:14.

In defeat, Arlovski (14-6) became the fifth UFC heavyweight champion to fall to Fedor. The list also includes Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Tim Sylvia, Mark Coleman and Kevin Randleman.
