Fedor Emelianenko returns to competition tomorrow at EFN 50, which takes place in St. Petersburg, Russia and will air live on UFC Fight Pass at 11AM EDT.
Emelianenko will face UFC veteran Fabio Maldonado in the main event of the evening.
Emelianenko is coming off a first round TKO win over Jaideep Singh, which took place at RIZIN’s New Year’s Eve card. Prior to the bout with Singh, Fedor stepped away from MMA competition with his last fight being a first round KO over Pedro Rizzo back in 2012. Emelianenko said recently that he is currently the closest he has ever been to signing with the UFC.
Maldonado is coming off back-to-back decision losses in the UFC. Maldonado lost to Corey Anderson in his last fight in November and “Rampage” Jackson in April of last year.
