April 5, 2016 8:40 am by Evan Bell

It was almost exactly 6 years ago that Fabricio Werdum shocked the world as he submitted MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko in the main event of ‘Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum’.

Following Emelianenko’s triumphant return to MMA on New Year’s Eve, ‘The Last Emperor’ revealed that he would like to try and avenge the loss to Werdum in a rematch under the UFC banner.

Werdum took to Instagram to propose a ‘UFC Chechnya’ event headlined by a rematch between the pair.

I wish that, one day in the near future, Fedor and I can fight in the first UFC in Chechenia. I think this would be a glorious inaugural event in Chechenia, and I think the fans would love to see this competition between two legends. I know that Chechenia has a rich history in combative sports, and I also know that the president of Chechenia is a huge MMA Fan. He has his own team and he passionately invests and supports our sport. I would hope to make this dream come true someday. . Я мечтаю и хотел бы, чтобы в один прекрасный день в ближайшее время, Федор и я могли бы драться в первом ЮФС в Чечне. Я думаю, что это было бы великолепное мероприятие в Чечне, и я думаю, что поклонники хотели бы видеть этот бой между двумя легендами. Я знаю, что Чечня имеет богатую историю в единоборствах, и я также знаю, что Президент Чечни является огромным поклонником ММА. У него есть своя команда, и он страстно инвестирует и поддерживает наш спорт. Я хотел бы надеяться, чтобы сделать эту мечту когда-нибудь реальностью. @kadyrov_95 @vismuradov_95_ @abdul_kerim_edilov @aliabdelaziz000 ibragim_kharaev_losangeles . —– Eu desejo que, um dia, num futuro próximo, Fedor e eu posso lutar no primeiro UFC na Chechênia.
