    Fedor Emelianenko contemplated retirement following his 35 second KO loss to two-division Bellator champ Ryan Bader last January, but it looks like he will be putting those plans on hold for now. According to Scott Coker, Emelianenko has signed a multi-fight extension with Bellator, effectively ensuring that the MMA legend will be ending his career with the promotion.

    Coker says he plans on bringing the heavyweight pioneer to multiple countries, with a retirement tour of sorts being possibly against the likes of fellow PRIDE stars Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Josh Barnett.

    “This will be his farewell tour,” Coker said on Friday night as he announced the new signing. “We’ll do fights in locations we haven’t been before, multi-city,…

    Whoever says Rampage is out of their mind.
    Rampage has said for 10 years Fedor is his favorite fighter and he wouldn't want to fight him.
    In case those interviews have been erased from the internet, he said it in his interviews in the last tournament as well.

    Who knows who he's going to fight, but what we do know is that Scott Coker will do him right, whereas Dana White would have done him like anyone else.
    In my mind, he does Abu Dhabi , Japan, then ends in Moscow with Bigfoot and a ceremony rightfully deserved.
    In a perfect world, the Roman Coliseum comes into play, which actually could happen.
    He's been the perfect Combat sportsman throughout his career, never a boring fight, no shit talk, all respect and honor.
    And kick ass.

    I thought the farewell tour started 5 years ago. Nothing like nostalgia!

    Nobody wants to face themselves, but somehow Bellator is going to make thus happen?

    His retirement tour started at 33. That's when he started to get old and slow according to the clowns that love him

    I haven't heard anybody serious make that argument but I'm sure a few dipshits have. The Werdum and Hendo losses were quick stoppages that actually occurred while Fedor was pressing the action and had nothing to do with Fedor being out of his prime. TRT Bigfoot had a massive size advantage over Fedor and that was a big element in that fight.

    This guy has no self respect now. He keeps getting knocked out with baby punches and still wants to fight.

    hey let's take the fedor final tour to a list of places with no history of regulation.. of any kind. let's also just agree what to say when fedor suddenly turns up in good shape. could we say he's been eating yak? anyway, this thing is gonna be great, let's cut the strings and soar.
