Early this morning a legendary Russian heavyweight climbed back into the ring in Japan, and as expected, he handled his business.

Yup, I’m talking about Fedor Emelianenko, who took an easy fight against an absolute no-name in Jaideep Singh to be the main event of the second day of RIZIN’s New Years Eve extravaganza.

RIZIN is pretty much a zombie-version of PRIDE, so this looked and felt like a total blast from the past – and that’s okay!

Here’s a link to the video as taken from a legal Russian stream. SPIKE TV is airing something called “Breakfast with Fedor Emelianenko” in a few minutes, which is presumably the fight, but I ain’t waiting for that to post this.

Happy New Year!
