Fedor Tops Lesnar & Mayweather On BusinessWeek’s Power 100 Athletes List

Fedor Emelianenko

Fedor Emelianenko got a little mainstream love this week. BusinessWeek ranked him No. 82 on their Power 100 2010 Athletes list ahead of fellow combat sports competitors Floyd Mayweather Jr. (No. 91), Shane Mosely (No. 93) and Brock Lesnar (No. 96),  though Manny Pacquiao edged him out at No. 72. It’s a little surprising considering Fedor probably doesn’t make close to what Mayweather and Lesnar make, or at least pull in as much revenue as they do, however their accomplishments were taken into consideration as well, and it’s difficult to top Fedor in that department.
