The new Japanese promotion that will be holding an event on New Years Eve and will feature the return of Fedor Emelianenko is planning on holding a press conference on Thursday and the word on the street is that they’ll be officially announcing who Fedor will be fighting.
But, since the MMA media and fan base are so inpatient, we might already know who that opponent will be.
According to a report from MMAFighting, who claim to have spoken to sources close to the fight, Fedor will fight fighting Indian-Japanese heavyweight kickboxer Jaideep Singh in his return fight.
Yeah, exactly, who?
Singh is 28 years old and 40-10 (1 NC) in kickboxing, however when it comes to professional MMA bouts he only has one. One MMA fight and he’ll be facing one of the best of all time, OK.
His only MMA fight, and win, came against Alireza Tavak back in June of 2013.
