This Saturday, join Bloody Elbow for live fight coverage of Legend Fighting, live from Moscow, featuring Badr Hari, plus Aleks Emelianenko vs. Bob Sapp and much more. Get a preview here, with fight card and live stream details.

Fans looking to fill their Saturday with combat sports have a new addition to the menu. In case UFC 160 and Froch vs. Kessler II aren't enough for you, Bloody Elbow will have coverage of LEGEND Fighting Show, live from Moscow, Russia. Legend takes place this Saturday May 25 with a start time of 11:00 a.m. ET. The show will be available as a live stream via UStream for $14.95. This is the first event from the new Legend promotion, and they have stacked the card with a lot of interesting names.

The biggest international name here: Badr Hari. And for many fans, that name alone is enough of a reason to watch.

The notoriously volatile (and highly talented) kickboxing great will be fighting for the second time since his prison stint last year. (Hari is still awaiting trial, but is currently out of jail). Last time out, Hari defeated Zabit Samedov at the K-1 GP in March. Now, he's back to take on... Zabit Samedov. Who, by the way, Hari also fought and defeated in 2009. Is the world clamoring for Hari vs. Samedov III? Not exactly, though to be fair, Samedov did put up a good fight last time out. But hey, it's Badr Hari fighting - a rarity indeed these days.

The main event of the show is a potential classic for the fans of weird Pride-style matchmaking, as Alexander Emelianenko takes on Bob Sapp. Emelianenko has had a lot of issues in recent years, with controversy surrounding him relating to an accusation that he has Hepatitis C. He's coming off a loss to Jeff Monson. For his part, Sapp is on a truly remarkable 10 fight losing streak in MMA (plus is 1-12 in his last 13 kickboxing fights). This should be weird.

The show does feature some quality kickboxing action as well in the form of a four man tournament featuring Dzhabar Askerov, Enriko Gogokhia, Artur Kyshenko, and Yuri Bessmertny. That's actually a great tournament with an intriguing final no matter how the semi-finals shake out.

Finally, there was once talk of Jon Jones appearing on the show (not fighting of course), though that has not been mentioned in the latest press.

It all happens live from Moscow this Saturday. Join us here at Bloody Elbow for live fight coverage. You know you want to see how this goes down.
