With the return of Fedor Emelianenko a week away, check out his signing with Bellator

Fedor is back in the cage on the 18th, here’s the night he signed with Bellator

If you haven’t had time to wrap your head around this, let me lay it out for you. Anderson Silva and Fedor Emelianenko are fighting in the USA on back to back weekends.  Arguably the two best fighters ever, front in center for our viewing pleasure.

Before what I am sure will be a busy week of breaking down Fedor’s upcoming fight with Matt Mitrione, here’s a little video from Bellator from the night Fedor signed with them.

Fedor is considered by many to be the greatest of all time.  He is undoubtedly the greatest heavyweight fighter to ever compete.  He faces a heavy-handed challenger in Matt Mitrione.  The video clearly shows how excited Matt Mitrione is to be fighting Fedor, and he will show up ready to do work.

We will have much more on Fedor in the coming days leading up his fight, and additional coverage of what is an excellent Bellator card.  Here’s how the main card breaks down.
