Fedor Emelianenko will make a return to the cage this Saturday as he faces Matt Mitrione at Bellator 172. Bellator has worked hand-in-hand with Rizin and a lot of their fighters are cross-promotional with one another. King Mo goes back and forth between Rizin and Bellator and seems to enjoy it quite a bit.
For years and years, people wanted to see how Fedor would do in the UFC. It always seemed like Fedor was about ready to sign, but something was holding him back from doing it. UFC champions such as Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Anderson Silva, Frank Mir and even Brock Lesnar wanted to test themselves against Fedor because he is highly considered to be the greatest MMA heavyweight ever, but they never got the chance to.
On the next page, Fedor goes into depth about why he signed with Bellator instead of the UFC and also tells about other times that he decided not to sign with the UFC as well.
