Heavyweight fighter Fedor Emelianenko addressed the crowed during the DREAM 6 event held last night at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Fedor expressed interest in fighting on a New Years Eve DREAM show to be held in Japan.
It is hard to see Affliction MMA allowing the Russian to fight just 3 weeks before the rescheduled Affliction 2 “Day of Reckoning” show set for January 19 from the Honda Center in Anaheim California.
Affliction announced that Fedor would likely be on the card, but has yet to announce an opponent.
Fedor is widely loved by Japanese fans after competing for PRIDE FC for many years.
Affliction VP Tom Atencio shoots the notion down.
“Fedor was supposed to fight for them on New Year’s Eve, but he is not because we extended his contract,”
I guess no one told Fedor
