Fedor Emelianenko returns to MMA on November 20th against Jeff Monson, but if you want to watch it you're going to have to pony up some cash. And get up early. The event will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET/4:30 a.m. PT on Sunday, November 20th, and will cost $29.95 to order. The event is appropriately titled M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Monson and takes place at the Olympic Arena in Moscow.
Emelianenko is currently on a three-fight losing streak, with the last loss coming via knockout at the hands of Dan Henderson back in July. The loss, which came after being finished by Fabricio Werdum and Antonio Silva as well, forced Strikeforce to release him from his contract. Monson has seemingly competed in every organization known to man, last fought just four weeks again in England, picking up first-round submission victory.
A bout between the two fighters has been rumored for years, and finally came to fruition after Fedor returned to Russia following his release.
