Fedor Emelianenko

On New Year’s Eve MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko made his successful return to MMA under the Rizin FF banner as he defeated Jaideep Singh.

The MMA world immediately began discussing how ‘Fedor’s back!’ And while we speculated that his next fight could be under the Bellator MMA banner, it was announced today that the fight will once again be under the Rizin banner.

He spoke to RSport.RU:

“The next fight is scheduled for April. In my opinion, it will be here in Japan, in cooperation with the company Rizin. Just know that the company is planning a tournament next August and is in talks with Bellator and other organizations. There is another chance of a joint project. For me it would be convenient to enter the ring in April — four months to relax a bit and with new team before preparing for the next battle.”
