Legendary Russian MMA fighter Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko signed a new contract with Bellator. The contract is designed for three fights. The first battle is scheduled to take place at the end of 2019 in Japan. The second fight – in 2020 in New York. The names of opponents and fees are not yet known.
I would like to thank Scott Cocker. We really signed a new contract. I am pleased with this event. Scott invited me to perform around the world. I hope different countries will see our performances in Bellator.
Recall that Fedor Emelianenko spent his last fight in the tournament Bellator on the Grand Prix of heavyweights against Ryan Baider. That fight Emelianenko lost by knockout in round 1.
