Fighting Mixed Combative have announced that Igor Vovchanchyn will make his comeback at Fighting Mixed Combative’s second event in September. A representative from FMC said that many fans in Korea have said that they want to see Vovchanchyn so he decided to negotiate with him. It seems like they got him after a lengthy persuasion. Because of their heavy Russian Sambo connections, FMC are looking at signing big name Russian fighters one after one.

Also on the September card, Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Blagoy Alexandre Ivanov is rumored to take place.

DREAM Super Hulk GP participant Jan Nortje has also been announced as a participant of FMC. Ivan Emelianenko, “Russia Edition Gina Carano” Julia Berezikova, Mikhail Malyutin who turned around his career in 2008, and four Korean names should also appear on their events.

FMC’s first event will take place on August 15th. FMC said from the get go that they want to be as big as UFC and PRIDE. Signing former PRIDE fighters and Emelianenko brothers is a very good idea since both are very popular in Korea. UFC drawing monster ratings on Korean TV doesn’t hurt the interest of MMA there either.

Update: It seems like FMC’s second event will be a collaboration event with the annual world martial arts festival, which takes place from September 23rd to 27th.

It will be great to see Igor again,but I know too that he's got a lot of injuries,and I wonder if he's just doing this for a nice paycheck.
Regardless,it's nice to know will get to see him in action one more time.

i read that he wouldnt fight anymore because of a recurring hand injury that NEEDED to be operated on, so i assume it has been.

also very excited to see Igor back action, always exciting fights

this seems a blessing and a curse. on one hand we get to see Vovchanchyn in some exciting and possibly some devastating kos.....but on the other hand, this dude has been in some wars and has had lots of injuries and beatings and could come back to action only to lose to nobodies and tarnish his legacy....


hopefully he comes back and gives us some great wars to watch!!
