Fedor Emelianenko

While talks between Fedor Emelianenko and the UFC have never led to ‘The Last Emperor’ fighting in the Octagon, if the stars align after his New Year’s Eve fight with Jaideep Singh under the Rizin FF banner, there could still be hope of seeing Emelianenko in the UFC.

He spoke to Championat, where he revealed that there still may be hope for he and the UFC.

“Time will tell if there can be an opportunity to work with the UFC, as well as with other companies.”

“[When Dana White came to Moscow], the negotiations began with the fact that [the UFC] has the best fighting organization, and that they will do better promotion. I do not need promotion. I didn’t want to just to attract attention on this fight and retire. If you do something, then it has to be meaningful.”

Like ‘The Last Emperor’ said…time will tell.
