To the madness of the brave we sing a song. Fedor continues to hunt for his own knockout
Emelianenko wants to end his career brightly. But he becomes a victim.
The epic with the departure of 45-year-old Fedor Emelianenko from the sport will not receive a logical conclusion. The political situation also played a negative role here: due to well-known events, the farewell battle of the Last Emperor on Red Square was disrupted. However, the last tour is still necessary, and Bellator matchmakers, albeit with their usual slowness, are still dealing with this issue.
“Fedor really wants to have his farewell fight at Bellator with Ryan Bader. We were talking about it. He has one fight left, he is about to retire. But we haven’t discussed it with Bader yet. It’s hard to say no to Fedor, so I think he will consider this option. Now the contracts are not signed, but we will definitely discuss the prospect of the fight, ”said Bellator President Scott Coker MMA Junkie.
No specifics, except for one fact – Fedor still desperately wants to meet with Bader. Is it just for the title? Of course, the American belt matters, however, if Ryan lost the championship to Valentin Moldavsky, Emelianenko would definitely not fight his student. Most likely, the Last Emperor simply continues to dream of a beautiful revenge.
The fight that happened in January 2019 was a big disappointment for Fedor. He then wanted to win the heavyweight Grand Prix, but lost already in the 35th second of the fight. Ryan caught the legendary fighter with his signature blow, landing right in the jaw. Emelianenko collapsed onto the canvas, where he was quickly and hard finished off. The sensationally quick defeat dealt a serious blow to the pride of the athlete from Stary Oskol.
Ryan Bader – Fedor Emelianenko
A small revenge for the teacher was carried out by Vadim Nemkov, who took away the light heavyweight belt from Bader. But Fedor wants to close the “vendetta” himself and beautifully loop his career. Emelianenko is not stopped by either age or subsidence of skills – he is determined to defeat Ryan. The intention is bold and commendable, but there is almost no chance against the American. Most likely, in revenge, the Russian will again fly into a knockout. Does the Last Emperor need a similar finish?
