He’s one of the last standing notable heavyweights to never compete in the UFC. Fedor Emelianenko may have fallen off the divisions rankings, but it doesn’t mean he is done. Emelianenko has been set to fight on his management, M-1 Global’s fight card on April 21st against an unknown opponent. With the UFC still in turmoil over the Overeem failed drug testing, hopes of UFC fans finally seeing “The Last Emperor“step in the octagon are currently at a high.
To add to that speculation, a new video has surfaced featuring Fedor training in UFC gloves (0:50). This could just be a coincidence or perhaps as M-1 management would insinuate, there is still a likely possibility that we will see Emelianenko step in the octagon before hanging it up.
