In human years Fedor Emelianenko is 39 years of age. If you run Fedor’s Earth age divided by the years he was considered The Greatest of All Time multiplied by the lines in his forehead when he smiles you get a rough estimate of Fedor’s current GOAT age. Despite 16 years of pro MMA service, Fedor has never fought on the UFC airwaves but he is getting closer.
The MMA world collectively punched themselves in the groin region the moment Fedor’s match-up with Fabio Maldonado was announced for June 17th in Russia. Yes, Fedor is fighting a Brazilian zombie who last competed in the UFC’s 205 pound weight division but there is a glimmer of hope. The UFC and Fedor are holding hands on this one, and The GOAT’s bout with Maldonado will air on UFC Fight Pass thanks to the streaming service’s previous deal with Eurasia Fight Nights.
Thanks to UFC Fight Pass’s need to air all things MMA and Fedor’s need to fight for obscure promotions, their streams have crossed! Get ready to carve “UFC hearts Fedor” into your desk at home, school or work after you watch a glimpse of the UFC advertising a Fedor fight on Fight Pass airwaves.
