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.

Does the general lack of forum response highlight that most people (maybe like me) are not that bothered?

I'd say the majority of the playgrounds members are in the western time zones so id say they were asleep when this came out, and lucky you, you get the luxury of living in Spain

It has nothing to do with lost repect from me, its just that no opponent has been named yet. I'll comment further when one is in place

I heard through the grapevine that a potentially epic matchup with top contender, Dan Severn, is in the works!
