Fedor Emelianenko's Next Fight Will Be In Russia

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Fedor Emelianenko might have lost three fights in a row and been released from Strikeforce, but he's not hanging 'em up yet. He intends to continue his career, and he will apparently be doing it in his home country of Russia. This was posted on M-1's page yesterday:

Vadim Finkelstein, co-founder of M-1 Global, has confirmed today that Russian heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko will fight in his homeland for the first time since April 2007.

"Fedor is going to fight in late fall in Russia, we have already reached all the necessary agreements on his fight"

Date, place and opponent will be announced soon.

I don't exactly expect to see a top-flight opponent for his next bout, but I'm glad that Fedor is going to soldier on. The former Pride heavyweight champion was finished by Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson in his last fight. There was talk that Fedor would compete on a North American M-1 card to be shown on Showtime, but that doesn't appear to be the case, at least for now.
