As announced on the press release, Bellator will be working with Rizin on the event

Since signing with Bellator in 2017, Emelianenko (38-6, 1NC) has gone 2-2 in the promotion. Starting with a loss to Matt…

Rampage commenting on Fedor back in Pride:


Recent Press conference Rampage and Fedor:





Rampage is horribly out of shape but still has his chin - Fedor is in shape but with no chin...

Fedor needs to gas Rampage out but I see Fedor going in with his old style and getting laid out unconscious by Rampage.

Fun fight 10 years to late..will still watch!

What The Shit???
This for real? LOL I mean... great, & PRIDE NEVA DIE and whatnot, but is this Fedor's retirement fight?
I thought it was going to be vs. Josh Barnett.

But hey. Fedor wins. Rampage only trains for fights, because he's a fighter, not a martial artist. Gonna be embarrassed by the last emperor's last ride.

Fedor Neva Die!

Legends match
Fedor KOing Mir and Turtling Chael was good for me

Fedor will Flurry early as he always does...hopefully Rampage doesn't have a clean counter for it

I predict Hooks

Fedor has that similar winging style as Wanderlei ...Rampage has the better Boxing defense and counters - Rampage keeps it tight and condensed compared to Fedor.

Fedor really needs to use his distance - timing - go for his classic blast of speed entrance with a winging right or left to the head as a set up for a clinch to trip ...bring it to the ground early if he can.
(Think Fedor Vs. Ogawa fight or this gif against Big Nog)



Fedor better dig deep into the memory bank and flash back to when Randleman nearly sent him into the ether world.



Because he’ll be facing the King of Slams!
Slampage!!

This isn't the worst fight to make as they're both around the same age and have approximately the same wear and tear. Quinton's boxing is pretty decent and we know he doesn't wrestle or train much grappling anymore. Fedor could probably get it done with a takedown, but Rampage could just as easily KO him. Weird swan song for both guys. I'd rather see the long overdue Rampage vs. Tito or a rematch with Forrest and Fedor vs. one of his old rivals like Cro Cop or Big Nog.
