Fedor Emelianenko

Bellator has another big card going down this weekend, as G.O.A.T. contender Fedor Emelianenko is going to throw down with Matt Mitrione. The fight will mark the first time Emelianenko has fought in the U.S. since way back in 2011, when he was taken out by Dan Henderson.

Since then, Emelianenko has retired, and un-retired. The former PRIDE heavyweight champ has also won five straight. In advance of Saturday’s Bellator 172 card in San Jose, the promotion has begun releasing “Fight Week”” videos, which feature behind the scenes footage.

In Episode One, cameras are on hand as Fedor arrives in California, spends some time outdoors, and hits pads. You can check it out below.
