Fedor Emelianenko


Former heavyweight king Fedor Emelianenko returns to action tomorrow against American Top Team fighter Jeff Monson, and now the official weigh-ins for the event are in the book.

Fedor returns to action for the first time since losing by knockout to UFC 139 headliner Dan Henderson in his final fight under the Strikeforce banner.

It was the third loss in a row for the Russian, who up to that point only had one blemish on his record, and that was a TKO loss due to a cut on his head.

Monson has been gunning for a fight with Fedor for several years, and tomorrow he’ll finally get his wish.

The Fedor vs. Monson card will air live on pay-per-view from Moscow, Russia starting at 7:30am ET and runs $29.95.

    Does anyone care about this fight?

      I sure don’t. I looked because I couldn’t believe this dopey fight was actually happening. 40-something, tired jeff monson. Poor Fedora; how the mighty have fallen. At least he knows the russian judges will for sure give him a decision win.

  • Mario

    Sure.

    MMAWeekly obviously, or else they wouldn’t post an article on the bout.

    LOL

    And you apparently do as well, seeing as how you took the time to comment. If you REALLY didn’t care, you wouldn’t have commented.

    True true. Lol. I mean for the right reasons.

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. M-1 ruined Fedor and diminished his legacy. What a freakin shame.

    The diehards will say that Fedor is a better man for standing up for himself and not “bowing” to the UFC’s demands but that’s just silly. That’s like saying Jordan would have been better off playing Euroleague basketball or Emmitt Smith playing for the CFL. The best should always fight the best and M-1 (and Fedor, he’s responsible too) prevented that from happening.

    Instead of getting the fights we wanted and needed to see over the last 6 years we were treated to freak show fights, a slew of UFC washouts and guys who were a step or 2 below the level of competition (and sometimes weight class) he should have been facing. And when he finally did face someone inside the top 15 it was too late. He was on the downside of his career and the outcome was not favorable to him or the greedy hangers-on at M-1.

    He was definitely good in his prime but was he the best? We’ll never know and to argue about it now is pointless.
