The Last Emperor” has finally found his new home.

Sources close to the situation have told Combat Press that Fedor Emelianenko has officially signed with the UFC, with an official announcement set to be made in the coming weeks. According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Emelianenko is currently looking at options for his Octagon debut.

Interesting to see if he has anything left...all you Fedor fans better hope his UFC stint isn't as disastrous as his Strikeforce stint was

That being said, I think a fight with Mir is inevitable...and if there is any fight Brock would come back to UFC for I think Fedor would be it

Too many new and/or uneducated fans only respect current fighters and disregard what the old guards and original fighters did. Regardless of how Fedor's run in the UFC goes, he will still be the greatest HW MMA fighter to date and one of the all time great MMA fighters ever to enter the cage. Most HWs can only put a short win streak together before they lose and the HW champions defend the title once or twice, at best, before losing. Fedor went almost 10 years undefeated with 30+ wins, in the best HW division at the time, including beating many future or current hall of famers.

PS this is not a personal attacked against your knowledge, but just a general statement.

#1 - I'm not a "new" fan and #2 - I'm certainly not "uneducated"

No need to get all defensive about a statement I made...I respect what he did and agree he's the best HW in history, just saying StrikeForce was a disaster for him so hopefully his time in UFC isn't like that

Damn you and your debunking! seriously though I agree I've blue balled by The Fedor/UFC rumors too many times to believe it before I see him walk out.

If u guys don't follow Bas Rutten on his FB, he also just confirmed that Fedor has signed with the UFC and Bas wouldn't be pulling our dicks like Dana would be

Finally we'll know the answer to the big question:

How many fight kits does he sell?

True if Huge. Hard to believe but it's looking like it has happened, sounds like the announcement might come at UFC 191 unless they can't keep the cat in the bag that long, looks like it's out.
