The former PRIDE heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko is still beloved by Japanese fans — as he’s seen here in a bit of a slap Sumo match on reality TV.
Fedor doesn’t have much options these days as most decent heavyweights are have signed with Zuffa.
And what are the chances of Fedor fighting inside the cage? Not good according to UFC President Dana White who isn’t exactly motivated to see him ever step into the UFC Octagon.
“Not even a little bit. That was a guy who was made an incredible offer, and they laughed at it. He ain’t laughing now.”
