Looks like we haven't seen the last of the Last Emperor. After his 35 second TKO loss to Ryan Bader in the Bellator's HW Grand Prix back in January, rumors swirled that Fedor Emelianenko is retiring. Well, the cat's out the bag and it turns out, Fedor is NOT retiring. After the Bellator 222 event ended this Friday night, the announcement was made that the Russian is back. Full details of his contract are unknown but it's expected Fedor returns to cage later this year (h\/t MMAMania) \u201cIt\u2019s a multi-fight deal, multi-year and this is going to be his retirement tour,\u201d said Bellator president Scott Coker. \u201cI think we\u2019d like to take him to a lot of countries and cities that maybe haven\u2019t seen him in a long time or have never seen him. It\u2019s going to be fun when we roll this thing out.\u201d However, a heavyweight contender Josh Barnett who recently inks a new deal could be his next opponent. \u201cThat\u2019s definitely one of the names we\u2019ve approached with Fedor,\u201d Coker said of Barnett. \u201cHe\u2019s fine with it. That would be a timing issue. I\u2019m not sure if that\u2019s going to be the very first fight but I think we have a great roster that he can fight. \u201cI think \u201cRampage\u201d Jackson versus Fedor, I think of Josh Barnett, there\u2019s a couple other fighters out there that just come to my mind.\u201d Fedor is currently 43 years old and has a\u00a038-6 MMA( 2-2 in Bellator) record. He has been looking significantly older and slower in his recent fights so the news of his new multi-fight deal comes as a surprise to pretty much everyone.
