The UFC may have held an explosive event this past weekend, but they aren't the only game in town, folks.
Indeed, Strikeforce was in Las Vegas this past Friday night (Nov. 18) for its Challengers 20 event that featured fast rising lady ass kicking machine Ronda Rousey adding yet another arm to her growing collection of limbs.
Bellator staged an exciting show that was capped off with a "Fight of the Year" candidate when Michael Chandler stepped up to the plate and choked out Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight championship.
M-1 Global invaded Mother Russia for an event that featured the great Fedor Emelianenko looking to get back to his winning ways against Jeff Monson, which he did with a dominant decision win.
But that's not all.
In case you missed any of the news or results from the weekend that was in MMA, don't worry fight fans, we've got you covered after the jump.

Fedor vs. Jeff Monson fight video. It's the whole thing, folks; all 15 minutes of it. Word on the street is "The Last Emperor" broke one of "The Snowman's" legs with a kick.
- Despite his win, some pundits, like Mr. Sergio Hernandez, don't believe we can officially declare Fedor as "back." A win over Monson does not a legacy make.
