Fedor Emelianenko will return to the professional stage as part of the PRID Fighting Championship.
Fedor Emelianenko, the legendary Russian heavy MMA, will return to the professional stage during the PRID Fighting Championship held in Saitama City, Japan.
Fedor’s rival is a former UFC heavyweight champion Quinton Ramone “Rampage” Jackson. The match time between the two legends will take place on December 29 at the Super Arena.
The match between Fedor and ‘Rampage’ will become the focus of the world martial arts village later this year. Both boxers have had brilliant achievements in their professional MMA career.
Bellator President Scott Coker said this was the first time his company had organized a tournament for martial arts legends. This helps fans to once again witness the legends playing.
Fedor Emelianenko was originally a soldier in the Russian army as a firefighter. Perhaps his life would be forever a normal soldier if he did not step foot into the MMA village.
Fedor has been a champion and has a brilliant record in many tournaments, especially Pride Fighting Championships (2003 – 2007), Sambo International (2002, 2005, 2007), Judo Federation of Russia (huy Bronze chapter 1998, 1999).
Fedor joined MMA on May 21, 2000. Immediately, he opened the front pages of the legendary story in his own name. He had a series of 4 wins, including defeating Ricardo Arona who at the time was the defending champion of ADCC, arguably the toughest opponent during Fedor Emelianenko’s career.
Since then, Fedor has become a legend of MMA with a series of 28 unbeaten matches (from 2000-2010). Fedor defeated the 10 most rated boxers on the planet.
With this series of achievements, Fedor Emelianenko was named as Last Emperor by fans. MMA referee John McCarthy and sports commentator Michael Schiavello compared Fedor’s achievements in MMA to those of Muhammad Ali for Boxing, or Pelé for football. Fedor Emelianenko has repeatedly met and talked with President Putin.
