‘The Last Emperor’ Fedor Emelianenko hasn’t fought in an MMA Bout since 2012, when he defeated Pedro Rizzo under the M-1 Global banner. After the fight, Emelianenko retired from MMA, however there has been talk recently of ‘what if’.
Below, you can see a picture of Emelianenko at the Spike TV headquarters in New York City. Interestingly enough, Spike TV airs all of the Bellator MMA cards, and Scott Coker is the President of Bellator MMA. Emelianenko fought for Coker under the Strikeforce banner four times, leaving many to wonder if Emelianenko visiting the Spike TV offices could have something to do with a potential return to MMA.
