Nothing has been officially announced, and really, the Instagram post below could just be a mock-up of someone’s fantasy… but damn is it an interesting fantasy.

Wanderlei Silva, formerly of PRIDE FC and the UFC (and jurisdictions where pesky athletic commissions test fighters for performance-enhancing drugs), uploaded a poster of him and Fedor Emelianenko facing off in RIZIN. It could mean nothing, it could mean maybe the folks at RIZIN are thinking about it, it could mean a million things. And it certainly doesn’t mean they are for sure fighting each other in August.

It would be a cool fight if they did, though. Agree or disagree?
