Fedor Emelianenko’s Next Fight Set for Late-Fall in Russia

Fedor EmelianenkoAs expected, Fedor Emelianenko’s first fight since being released by Strikeforce following a three-fight losing streak will take place in “late-fall” in Russia.

M-1 Global announced Friday that “all the necessary agreements” have been reached for the fight with an exact date, location, and opponent to be announced in the near future.

Emelianenko (31-4) was regarded as one of the top heavyweights and pound-for-pound fighters when he knocked out Brett Rogers in his Strikeforce debut in 2009 for his 27th-straight win over nearly 10 years, but has since suffered losses to Fabricio Werdum, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, and most-recently Dan Henderson in July.
