Fedor Emelianenko vs. Pedro Rizzo is officially going down on June 21st

I could drone on for days about the time I saw Pedro Rizzo fight Gilbert Yvel at The Ultimate Chaos in Biloxi, Mississippi back in 2009, but it wouldn’t negate the fact that it was one of the most brutal ground-and-pound finishes anyone has ever witnessed outside of UFC or Pride FC. Ironically, Fedor Emelianenko vs. Pedro Rizzo was a fight that nearly occurred back in 2006, but Rizzo fought Fedor’s teammate at the time, Red Devil Sport Club’s Roman Zentsov. It didn’t quite end well for Rizzo. In fact, the dude was knocked out in twenty-five seconds with just one supremely placed punch in the first round.

Now according to a tweet this morning from M-1’s Evgeni Kogan, The Last Emperor will face The Rock on June 21st in (we assume) Moscow, Russia. There you have it, your first present for this beautiful 4/20 — or as I like to refer to it: The day when LayzieTheSavage does absolutely nothing.
