Okay, okay, I know last week the rumor was that Fedor Emelianenko would be taking on Shane Carwin, but all that’s changed now.
Now he might be fighting Matt Mitrione.
As per FloCombat:
Fedor Emelianenko is going to compete inside the Bellator cage in 2017.
Multiple sources have confirmed with FloCombat a bout between “The Last Emperor” and former UFC veteran turned Bellator contender Matt Mtirione is being targeted for early 2017. While there is still nothing official on the bout, FloCombat has learned the fight is close to being a done deal.
A matchup between Emelianenko and Mitrione would not only be the biggest fight in the history of the promotion’s heavyweight division, but on par to be one of the most high-profile tilts ever put together under the Bellator banner.
