Fedor Emelianenko

Since it was revealed that Fedor Emelianenko would no longer be fighting Jaideep Singh in his return to MMA on New Years Eve, there has been much speculation as to who ‘The Last Emperor’ would be facing.

Rizin FC boss Nobuyuki Sakakibara spoke to Tass.ru via BloodyElbow to discuss the most recent update to the opponent selection process for Emelianenko.

“So far, we have not decided on the final decision. There are a number of candidates before us, but we want to choose the most worthy. Now the whole world is watching the news hoping to learn at last the name of Fedor’s opponent. Please wait a little more.”

We’re wondering if they’ve talked to this UFC heavyweight who wanted the fight.
