Fedor Emelianenko returns to action June 21st in Russia and it was announced this week that his opponent will be Pedro Rizzo who will be stepping into the cage after a nearly two year lay-off.

M-1 official Evgeni Kogan made the bout official via his Twitter account. Bobby Lashley had at one point been a rumored opponent as did Rolles Gracie.

The fight will take place at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia and will most likely air on pay-per-view.

The Emelianenko-Rizzo bout is the only fight announced for the card so far.

it just goes to show that all the top HW's are under the zuffa banner. if fedor doesn't murder Rizzo then it will probably cement place OUTSIDE the ufc.

Fedor is a legend that has quickly become a joke because of poor management.

That's when this fight would have made more sense.
Hope Rizzo gets a nice payday for this.

The one chick from Grease? Probably be more entertaining than watching Pedro.

Poor Pedro



Really? I dont think he'll win this fight but he should atleast keep it interesting with his powerful leg kicks, etc. Plus, its nice to see Rizzo get a lil payday.
