NO FUCKING WAY.

http://combatpress.com/2015/09/fedor-emelianenko-signs-with-the-ufc/
“The Last Emperor” has finally found his new home.

Sources close to the situation have told Combat Press that Fedor Emelianenko has officially signed with the UFC, with an official announcement set to be made in the coming weeks. According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Emelianenko is currently looking at options for his Octagon debut.

Although nothing has been confirmed as yet, a separate source indicated that there is a chance that Emelianenko will debut at UFC 193 in the co-main event for Melbourne’s first UFC visit. Although former K-1 champion Mark Hunt is already slated to compete in a rematch against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, “The Super Samoan” previously offered to welcome Emelianenko to the Octagon, and would be the likely opponent for Emelianenko if he fights in Melbourne. The event is headlined by a women’s bantamweight title bout between Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm. The event, which takes place from Etihad Stadium, is expected to break the company’s attendance records with ease.

Emelianenko last fought in 2012 when he defeated Pedro Rizzo in the first round. He later announced his retirement following that bout. The legendary heavyweight was widely considered to be the best fighter in the world during his prime in the Japanese-based Pride organization. The Russian fighter claimed Pride’s heavyweight title in 2003 with a win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and never relinquished the belt, defeating the likes of Nogueira, Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman and the aforementioned Hunt along the way. He continued his impressive run in Affliction, where he topped former UFC heavyweight champions Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski. Emelianenko’s aura of invincibility came to an end under the Strikeforce banner, where he went on a three-fight skid with losses to current UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, the aforementioned Bigfoot and Dan Henderson. The sambo specialist ended his career on a high note by compiling a three-fight winning streak that included knockouts of Satoshi Ishii and Rizzo.

I wonder how much he was offered Cheesy

I'd rather see Fedor get a Rematch VS Bigfoot Silva as his first fight instead of Huntu though!

Jon Jones moving to heavyweight vs Fedor would be worth the watch.  Would Jones fighting at heavyweight be enough of a disadvantage to offset the aging Fedor.  I know such a matchup would never happen, but that's the type of matchup the UFC should be gunning for, rarely are such matchups possible.

They'll want to protect Fedor so don't expect to see him vs Velasquez, JDS or anyone else who can wrestle and throw a punch. Maybe Matt Mitrione gets the call.

Old Meathead, gee I don't know Meathead can blow hot or cold, one minute he looks like a superstar the next moment a journeyman.  Meathead is tough, his leg kicks can be brutal.  I know Kimbo isn't a worthy opponent but Matt Mitrione kicked the absolute shit of of his legs so badly he literally couldn't stand anymore and quit.

Yes, comparing Kimbo to Fedor is an accurate assessment. Crocop has nothing left. He'd be a good name opponent for Fedor as well.

He's a great fighter but he's out of prime, a small heavyweight also, i don't see him challenging the top fighters of UFC, let's see...

I hope Fedor will "Zulu" his opponents from now on Cheesy

Let's see Bigfoot get Zulu'd!

we'll see, Werdum a former Pride FC fighter is the current champ.. Dana/UFC/Rogan were hyping everybody with the "new breed" HW fighters.. Cain, Duffe, Mitrione, Schaub, Browne..

Hunt, Arlovski, Overeem, Werdum "old fighters" still at the top 10

Agreed, Heavyweights tend to mature and come into their best form later. (I think this is true of MMA, not necessarily boxing)

maybe he can teach ronda some humility. I love ronda, but I'm disappointed in rondas constant ramble about floyd mayweather. I thought she was better than all that.

And I hope they won't start the same "would you beat mayweather in an mma fight" theme with fedor neither and if they do, I hope fedor will show ronda MANS example how to stay out of that bullshit.

And if he beats werdum, big deal, he's shit now days. At best he can try to outweigh fedor by 100bs and try to hug him out because fedor's gas tank is 100x better than werdums

I have watched half so far, Rogan has a major crush on Ronda I think, he is like a smitten child.  You can just tell he wants to roll with her.  Grin

Would be awesome if he still has some gas in his tank and makes a real impact but he's well past his prime now.

Werdum is shite?? WTF??!! Werdum no gastank? he outworked Cain and embarrassed him in every possible way!! UFC and 99% at sherdog/UG forums were saying Cain has the gastank from a LW.

Werdum is the BEST fighter on the planet, period!

And Ronda is very dislikeable, she burned a lot of bridges in the JUDO world for being a total bitch/arrogant, and it was displayed very well at the TUF show she did. Her PR team has done very well shoving her in everybody throat lately, anybody saying they can take on Floyd is a retard attention seeker PR stunt, should she say she can win over Phil Heath at MR.Olympia as well??!

p.s Rogans crying on his Podcast was beyond retard and cringeworthy, Rogan has gone full retard now..

I don't think he will make much of an impact, but he will put bums on seats that's for sure.  Probably destroy his legacy like all great fighters seem to eventually do.

I think his legacy as an ATG is already secured. Most people won't hold any future losses against him but it would be sad seeing him lose to fighters he would have destroyed in his prime.
