Bellator Backstage: Fedor Emelianenko

One of the greatest mixed martial artists of all-time, Fedor Emelianenko, will be making his Bellator debut in less than two weeks when he takes on Matt Mitrione in the main event of Bellator 172 on February 18th.

Emelienanko (36-4, 1NC) is regarded by most as the greatest heavyweight of all-time. He went undefeated from April 2001 until June of 2010, and is riding a 5-fight win streak. His two most recent wins coming after ending a short 3-year retirement.

Fedor’s Bellator signing was one of the biggest stories of 2016, and his debut will no doubt be looked at as one of 2017’s biggest moments by year’s end.
