Heavyweight superstar Fedor Emelianenko defeated top-ranked lightweight Shinya Aoki in a grappling exhibition match at DEEP/M-1 Challenge in Japan today, besting the crafty and popular Japanese submission specialist with an anklelock. After his victory, the Russian sambo champ - who's defeated the likes of Andrei Arlovski, Tim Sylvia and various bears and Yetii in unarmed combat - was awarded the World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts (WAMMA) lightweight championship belt. "We feel that Fedor's accomplishments as lightweight merit it," said WAMMA executive Joe Bloggerstein. "He's the WAMMA heavyweight champ and now he's also the WAMMA lightweight champ, making him the man to beat in both divisions." Through the aid of a translator, the crestfallen Aoki added: "What's a 'WAMMA'?" by Jim Genia

Not only did WalletPop readers vote his ShamWow commercial one of
the most annoying commercials ever, last month he was arrested for beating a prostitute.

The altercation took place last month in Miami Beach, The Smoking Gun reports. On February 7, Shlomi went back to his $750 room at the heavenly luxurious Setai Hotel where he paid twenty-six-year old Sasha Harris about $1,000 for her "services." During a kiss, Harris reportedly bit Shlomi's tongue and wouldn't let go. Shlomi says he beat her, repeatedly, to make her stop biting. When Harris finally got off of him, Shlomi, bleeding, ran down to the hotel lobby where security called police. The police report says, "Both parties had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from their persons." And Harris, at first, would not cooperate with police, who found $930 in her purse.

ShamWow Guy and Harris were both arrested for felony aggravated battery, but prosecuters declined to file formal charges. Harris told TSG that she's thinking of suing Shlomi. No official word yet on whether she's moved forward to get her hands on his fortune, built by sales of $19.99 ShamWows and Slap Chops. For ShamWow guy's gruesome mugshot, which is no doubt making its way through the blogosphere
